Boeing Rolls Out Fiscal Figures

Boeing (NYSE: BA) released the following financial statement:

The firm “reported fourth-quarter net income of $1.2 billion, or $1.56 per share, on revenue of $16.6 billion.  The results reflect solid performance across the company’s core programs, a favorable tax settlement (+$0.50 per share), and a special one-time contribution to Boeing’s charitable trust (-$0.05 per share) (Table 1).

“Net income for the full year was $3.3 billion, or $4.45 per share, on revenue of $64.3 billion, which included the $0.45 per share net impact of the favorable tax settlement and the charitable trust contribution.  First-quarter 2010 included a $0.20 per share tax charge on health care legislation.  Earnings per share for 2009 of $1.84 included a combined $3.58 per share impact due to the 787 R&D reclassification and 747 charges.

“Earnings guidance for 2011 has been established at between $3.80 and $4.00 per share reflecting solid core performance, higher pension expense, the revised 787 schedule and the current defense contracting environment.

“Boeing delivered strong operating performance and exceptional cash generation from core production and services businesses in 2010, which helped mitigate the impact of development program challenges, ” said Jim McNerney, Boeing chairman, president and chief executive officer.  “We’re entering 2011 well-positioned for growth, with a large order book, increasing global demand for commercial airplanes, greater clarity around our domestic defense outlook, and significant international defense sales opportunities.  Our focus for the year is to deliver the 787 and 747-8; manage disciplined increases in commercial airplane production rates and drive improved competitiveness and financial performance throughout the business.”
