On Wednesday (October 26, 2022), Boeing reported their third quarter financial results for the period ending September 30, 2022. The company reported a third quarter net loss of $3.3 billion or ($5.49) per share on a year-over-year increase in revenue of 4.0 percent to $16.0 billion. Boeing’s third quarter results reflect higher commercial volume, as well as losses on fixed-price defense development programs. During the quarter, the company generated operating cash flow of $3.2 billion. At September 30, 2022, Boeing had a total order backlog valued at $381 billion, including over 4,300 commercial airplanes. At the close of the third quarter, Boeing had cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities of $14.3 billion, up from $11.4 at the beginning of the quarter, as well as access to $12.0 billion in undrawn credit facilities.

In Wednesday’s announcement, Boeing’s President and Chief Executive Officer, Dave Calhoun, said,


“We continue to make important strides in our turnaround and remain focused on our performance. We generated strong cash in the quarter and are on a solid path to achieving positive free cash flow for 2022. At the same time, revenue and earnings were significantly impacted by losses on our fixed-price defense development programs. We’re squarely focused on maturing these programs, mitigating risks and delivering for our customers and their important missions. We remain in a challenging environment and have more work ahead to drive stability, improve our performance and ensure we’re consistently delivering on our commitments. Despite the challenges, I'm proud of our team and the progress we’ve made to strengthen our company.”
