The Boeing Company (NYSE: BA) today reported second-quarter 2005 net income of $566 million, or $0.70 per share, on revenues of $15.0 billion. Strong operating results offset primarily non-cash charges totaling $0.09 per share related to the sale of the Commercial Airplanes' operations in Wichita and Tulsa to Onex. Second-quarter 2004 earnings of $0.75 per share included a $0.23 per share benefit from interest on a tax refund.

"Second-quarter results reflect Boeing's focus on strong execution and improved operational efficiency," said Jim McNerney, Boeing Chairman and CEO. "Integrated Defense Systems delivered solid revenue growth and excellent margins driven by strong performance across its broad portfolio of defense, space and intelligence programs. Commercial Airplanes grew revenues by twenty percent and generated solid operating margins while finalizing 376 orders and achieving key milestones on the 787 program. Our cash flow was outstanding and we continued our balanced strategy for cash deployment, including the authorization of a new share repurchase plan and repayment of maturing debt. Due to improving commercial markets and strong operating performance from the Boeing team, we are raising our financial outlook."

The Company's second-quarter earnings from operations increased 26 percent to $0.8 billion (see Table 2) as strong operating performance offset higher non-cash expenses for pensions and share-based plans.
