Boeing Posts Lower Third-Quarter Results on Reduced Commercial Deliveries

  • Third-quarter revenues declined to $15.3 billion from $16.5 billion as labor strike and supplier production problems pushed airplane deliveries out of the quarter.
  • EPS declined to $0.96 per share, reduced by an estimated $0.60 on the lower deliveries and by $0.08 due to tax adjustments.
  • Backlog grew to a record $349 billion as near-term demand remains strong.
  • Updated financial guidance to be provided after strike concludes.
