The Boeing Company (NYSE: BA) reported second-quarter revenue of $16.7 billion, GAAP earnings per share of $0.32 and core loss per share (non-GAAP)* of ($0.37), driven by lower defense volume and unfavorable performance, partially offset by higher commercial volume (Table 1). Boeing recorded positive operating cash flow of $0.1 billion.

“We made important progress across key programs in the second quarter and are building momentum in our turnaround,” said Dave Calhoun, Boeing President and Chief Executive Officer. “As we begin to hit key milestones, we were able to generate positive operating cash flow this quarter and remain on track to achieve positive free cash flow for 2022. While we are making meaningful progress, we have more work ahead. We will stay focused on safety, quality and transparency, as we drive stability, improve performance, and continue to invest in our future.”

Operating cash flow improved to $0.1 billion in the quarter, reflecting higher commercial deliveries and timing of receipts and expenditures (Table 2).

Cash and investments in marketable securities decreased to $11.4 billion, compared to $12.3 billion at the beginning of the quarter, primarily driven by debt repayment (Table 3). The company has access to credit facilities of $14.7 billion which remain undrawn.

Total company backlog at quarter-end was $372 billion.

Segment Results

Commercial Airplanes

Table 4. Commercial AirplanesSecond QuarterFirst Half
(Dollars in Millions)20222021Change20222021Change
Commercial Airplanes Deliveries1217953 %21615638 %
Revenues$6,219$6,0153 %$10,380$10,2841 %
Loss from Operations($242)($472)NM($1,101)($1,328)NM
Operating Margin(3.9)%(7.8)%NM(10.6)%(12.9)%NM

Commercial Airplanes second-quarter revenue increased to $6.2 billion, driven by higher 737 deliveries, partially offset by lower 787 deliveries (Table 4). Operating margin of (3.9)% also reflects abnormal costs and period expenses, including higher R&D expense.

Boeing has nearly completed the global safe return to service of the 737 MAX and the fleet has flown more than 1.5 million total flight hours since late 2020. The 737 production rate increased to 31 airplanes per month during the quarter.

On the 787 program, the company continues to work with the FAA to finalize actions to resume deliveries and is readying airplanes for delivery. The program is producing at a very low rate and will continue to do so until deliveries resume, with an expected gradual return to five per month over time. The company still anticipates 787 abnormal costs of approximately $2 billion, with most being incurred by the end of 2023, including $283 million recorded in the quarter.

Commercial Airplanes secured orders for 169 737 MAX airplanes and 13 freighters, including seven 777-8 Freighters from Lufthansa Group. Commercial Airplanes delivered 121 airplanes during the quarter and backlog included over 4,200 airplanes valued at $297 billion.

Defense, Space & Security

Revenues$6,191$6,876(10) %$11,674$14,061(17) %
Earnings/(loss) from Operations$71$958(93) %($858)$1,363NM
Operating Margin1.1%13.9%(92) %(7.3)%9.7%NM

Defense, Space & Security second-quarter revenue decreased to $6.2 billion and second-quarter operating margin decreased to 1.1 percent, primarily driven by charges on fixed-price development programs, including MQ-25 and Commercial Crew, as well as unfavorable performance on other programs and lower volume on derivative aircraft programs. The MQ-25 program recorded a $147 million charge primarily due to higher costs to meet certain technical requirements. The Commercial Crew program also recorded a $93 million charge, primarily driven by launch manifest updates and additional costs associated with OFT-2.

During the quarter, the CH-47F Chinook Block II was selected as the German government’s future heavy-lift helicopter. Defense, Space & Security also successfully completed the CST-100 Starliner uncrewed OFT-2.

Backlog at Defense, Space & Security was $55 billion, of which 33% percent represents orders from customers outside the U.S.

Global Services

Global Services second-quarter revenue increased to $4.3 billion and second-quarter operating margin increased to 16.9 percent primarily driven by higher commercial services volume and favorable mix.

During the quarter, Global Services received a contract for airlift flight dispatch services from the U.S. Air Force and was awarded a contract for avionics upgrades and cybersecurity support for the U.S. Navy. Global Services also delivered the first A-10 wing set to the U.S. Air Force.

Effective tax rate57.6%(3.3)%12.8%126.1%

At quarter-end, Boeing Capital’s net portfolio balance was $1.6 billion. The change in loss from other unallocated items and eliminations was primarily due to the recognition of deferred compensation income as compared to expense recorded in the second quarter 2021. The second quarter effective tax rate primarily reflects tax expense on pretax earnings and an increase to the valuation allowance.

Non-GAAP Measures Disclosures

We supplement the reporting of our financial information determined under Generally Accepted Accounting Principles in the United States of America (GAAP) with certain non-GAAP financial information. The non-GAAP financial information presented excludes certain significant items that may not be indicative of, or are unrelated to, results from our ongoing business operations. We believe that these non-GAAP measures provide investors with additional insight into the company’s ongoing business performance. These non-GAAP measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the related GAAP measures, and other companies may define such measures differently. We encourage investors to review our financial statements and publicly-filed reports in their entirety and not to rely on any single financial measure. The following definitions are provided:

Core Operating Earnings, Core Operating Margin and Core Earnings Per Share

Core operating earnings is defined as GAAP earnings from operations excluding the FAS/CAS service cost adjustment. The FAS/CAS service cost adjustment represents the difference between the Financial Accounting Standards (FAS) pension and postretirement service costs calculated under GAAP and costs allocated to the business segments. Core operating margin is defined as core operating earnings expressed as a percentage of revenue. Core earnings per share is defined as GAAP diluted earnings per share excluding the net earnings per share impact of the FAS/CAS service cost adjustment and Non-operating pension and postretirement expenses. Non-operating pension and postretirement expenses represent the components of net periodic benefit costs other than service cost. Pension costs, comprising service and prior service costs computed in accordance with GAAP are allocated to Commercial Airplanes and BGS businesses supporting commercial customers. Pension costs allocated to BDS and BGS businesses supporting government customers are computed in accordance with U.S. Government Cost Accounting Standards (CAS), which employ different actuarial assumptions and accounting conventions than GAAP. CAS costs are allocable to government contracts. Other postretirement benefit costs are allocated to all business segments based on CAS, which is generally based on benefits paid. Management uses core operating earnings, core operating margin and core earnings per share for purposes of evaluating and forecasting underlying business performance. Management believes these core earnings measures provide investors additional insights into operational performance as they exclude non-service pension and post-retirement costs, which primarily represent costs driven by market factors and costs not allocable to government contracts. A reconciliation between the GAAP and non-GAAP measures is provided on pages 13.

Free Cash Flow

Free cash flow is GAAP operating cash flow reduced by capital expenditures for property, plant and equipment. Management believes free cash flow provides investors with an important perspective on the cash available for shareholders, debt repayment, and acquisitions after making the capital investments required to support ongoing business operations and long term value creation. Free cash flow does not represent the residual cash flow available for discretionary expenditures as it excludes certain mandatory expenditures such as repayment of maturing debt. Management uses free cash flow as a measure to assess both business performance and overall liquidity. Table 2 provides a reconciliation of free cash flow to GAAP operating cash flow.

Caution Concerning Forward-Looking Statements
