Boeing aircraft financing unit, Boeing Capital, to end separate SEC reporting

Boeing announced Jan. 23 that its aircraft financing and leasing unit, Boeing Capital Corporation, plans to suspend its separate U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission reporting.

The move will help streamline Boeing’s financial reporting process while not affecting the financing and leasing unit’s mission, operations or customer interactions. Boeing Capital’s financial information will continue to be included in Boeing’s SEC disclosures.

Boeing issued today a full and unconditional guarantee of all outstanding publicly issued debt securities of Boeing Capital. The aircraft financing unit will suspend its separate SEC reporting after filing its Form 10-K for 2012 in the coming weeks. In connection with the plan to suspend reporting obligations, BCC will file with the SEC today to terminate its current debt registration statement.

“This action will generate efficiencies in Boeing’s financial reporting process while allowing Boeing Capital to continue to fulfill its mission of supporting the company’s customers and managing its financial risks,” said Mike Cave, Boeing Capital’s president. “Our customers and stakeholders will see no change in Boeing Capital’s mission or how it operates. In addition, Boeing Capital intends to continue to maintain a target debt-to-equity ratio of 5 to 1.”

Cave said any future funding requirements for Boeing Capital are expected to be raised at the corporate level and then provided to Boeing Capital through intercompany loans.

Boeing Capital’s roots date back more than four decades in service to the aircraft financing needs of Boeing customers around the globe.

“Boeing Capital will continue to be reported as a segment in Boeing’s SEC reports, and we will continue to provide transparency into BCC’s financial results, financial position and leverage,” said Diana Sands, Boeing’s corporate vice president and controller.

BCC currently has approximately 150 employees and is headquartered in Renton, Wash., near Seattle.
