The Boeing Company (NYSE: BA) reported a third-quarter net loss of $1.6 billion, or $2.23 per share, as revenues rose 9 percent to $16.7 billion. Current period results reflect the previously announced reclassification to research and development (R&D) of costs incurred through July for the first three 787 flight-test airplanes ($2.46 per share), spending on those planes for August and September ($0.14 per share), and the 747 charge ($0.99 per share), partially offset by solid performance in other commercial airplane programs and the company's defense business (Table 1). Last year's strike and supplier production problems reduced year-ago revenue by an estimated $2.1 billion and earnings by an estimated $0.60 per share.

Revenues for the first nine months of 2009 rose 4 percent to $50.3 billion due to higher commercial deliveries and growth in the defense segment. Earnings for the first nine months declined to $0.06 per share, including the third-quarter impacts described above and a first-quarter $0.38 per share impact from reductions to future twin-aisle production rates and lower delivery price escalation forecasts in Commercial Airplanes.

Earnings guidance for 2009 has been adjusted to between $1.35 and $1.55 per share, from $4.70 to $5.00, to reflect the 787 and 747 impacts.

"The 787 cost reclassification and the 747 charge for increased costs and difficult market conditions clearly overshadowed what continues to be otherwise solid performance across our commercial production programs and defense business," said Boeing Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer Jim McNerney. "We look forward to getting the 787 and 747-8 in the air soon and moving forward with flight test and certification for these two important programs."

Boeing's quarterly operating cash flow was $1.2 billion, which includes higher cash receipts than the year-ago period partially offset by continued investment in development programs (Table 2). For the first nine months of 2009, operating cash flow was $2.4 billion. Free cash flow* was $1.0 billion in the quarter and $1.4 billion year-to-date.

Cash and investments in marketable securities totaled $6.6 billion at September 30, up 31 percent from the end of the second quarter. The cash position was improved by the issuance of $1.95 billion in debt partially offset by investing cash flows of $1.0 billion for the purchase of 787 facilities in South Carolina and payment of Sea Launch guarantees (Table 3). The company did not acquire any of its shares in the quarter.
