Boeing trim the production rate of 787 to 12 aircraft a month…

October 24, 2019

 

The Boeing Company reported third-quarter revenue of $20.0 billion, GAAP earnings per share of $2.05 and core earnings per share (non-GAAP)* of $1.45.

Boeing recorded operating cash flow of ($2.4) billion and paid $1.2 billion of dividends.

For purposes of the third-quarter results, the company has assumed that regulatory approval of the 737 MAX return to service begins in the fourth quarter of 2019 and that it will gradually increase the 737 production rate from 42 per month to 57 per month by late 2020.

Operating cash flow was ($2.4) billion in the quarter, primarily reflecting lower 737 delivery and advance payments as well as timing of receipts and expenditures. During the quarter, the company paid $1.2 billion of dividends, reflecting a 20 percent increase in dividends per share compared to the same period of the prior year.

Commercial Airplanes third-quarter revenue was $8.2 billion reflecting lower 737 deliveries. Third-quarter operating margin decreased to (0.5) percent reflecting lower 737 deliveries partially offset by a higher margin on the 787 program.

During the quarter estimated costs to produce 737 aircraft included in the accounting quantity increased by $0.9 billion primarily to reflect current assumptions regarding timing of return to service and the timing of planned production rate increases.

Commercial Airplanes delivered 62 airplanes during the quarter. Given the current global trade environment, the 787 production rate will be reduced to 12 airplanes per month for approximately two years beginning in late 2020.

The 777X program is progressing through pre-flight testing and remains on track for first flight in early 2020. The company is now targeting early 2021 for first delivery of the 777X.

Commercial Airplanes booked net orders worth $5 billion during the quarter, including orders for twenty 787 airplanes for Korean Air, eight 787 airplanes for Air New Zealand, and six 777 freighters for China Airlines. Commercial Airplanes backlog included nearly 5,500 airplanes valued at $387 billion.
