The Boeing Company and Subsidiaries
Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements
(Dollars in millions, except otherwise stated)
(Unaudited)
Note 1 – Basis of Presentation
The condensed consolidated interim financial statements included in this report have been prepared by management of The Boeing Company (herein referred to as “Boeing”, the “Company”, “we”, “us”, or “our”). In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) necessary for a fair presentation are reflected in the interim financial statements. The results of operations for the period ended September 30, 2021 are not necessarily indicative of the operating results for the full year. The interim financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited Consolidated Financial Statements, including the notes thereto, included in our 2020 Annual Report on Form 10-K.
Liquidity Matters
The global outbreak of COVID-19, 787 production issues and associated rework and residual impacts from the grounding of the 737 MAX airplane in 2019 are having a significant adverse impact on our business and are expected to continue to negatively impact revenue, earnings, and operating cash flow in future quarters. The COVID-19 pandemic has caused an unprecedented shock to demand for air travel, creating a tremendous challenge for our customers, our business, and the entire aerospace manufacturing and services sector. We continue to expect commercial air travel to return to 2019 levels in 2023 to 2024. We expect it will take a few years beyond that for the industry to return to long-term trend growth. There is significant uncertainty with respect to when commercial air traffic levels will recover, and whether and at what point capacity will return to and/or exceed pre-COVID-19 levels.
During the first nine months of 2021, net cash used by operating activities was $4.1 billion. Our operating cash flows continue to be impacted by lower commercial airplane deliveries and increases in commercial airplane inventory. We expect negative operating cash flows until commercial deliveries ramp up. In the first quarter of 2021, we issued $9.8 billion of fixed rate senior notes that mature between 2023 and 2026. We used the net proceeds of these note issuances to repay $9.8 billion outstanding under our two-year delayed draw term loan credit agreement. In the third quarter of 2021, we repaid $1.2 billion of term notes. As a result, our cash and short-term investment balance was $20.0 billion at September 30, 2021, down from $25.6 billion at December 31, 2020, while our debt balance was $62.4 billion at September 30, 2021, down from $63.6 billion at December 31, 2020. Short-term debt and the current portion of long-term debt increased to $5.4 billion at September 30, 2021, up from $1.7 billion at December 31, 2020. The current portion of long term debt includes term notes of $0.3 billion maturing in the fourth quarter of 2021, $0.9 billion maturing in 2022, and the remaining delayed draw term loan. While our two-year delayed draw term loan matures in February 2022, we are planning to repay the remaining $4.0 billion in the fourth quarter of 2021. Our short-term and long-term credit ratings remained unchanged during the third quarter of 2021.
In the first quarter of 2021, we entered into a $5.3 billion two-year revolving credit agreement, which we have not drawn upon. As of September 30, 2021, our unused borrowing capacity on revolving credit agreements is $14.8 billion, up from $9.5 billion at December 31, 2020. $3.1 billion of the $14.8 billion is a 364-day revolving credit facility, which was set to expire in October 2021. In October 2021, we renewed the 364-day facility for $3.1 billion, which now expires in October 2022. This 364-day facility has a one-year term out option that allows us to extend the maturity of any borrowings one additional year. We anticipate that these credit lines will remain undrawn and primarily serve as back-up liquidity to support our general corporate borrowing needs. See Note 11.
At September 30, 2021, trade payables included $2.8 billion payable to suppliers who have elected to participate in supply chain financing programs. While access to supply chain financing was reduced in 2020 due to our credit ratings and debt levels, we do not believe that these or future changes in the availability of supply chain financing will have a significant impact on our liquidity.
8

In addition to our debt issuances, we have taken a number of actions to improve liquidity. During 2020, our Board of Directors terminated its prior authorization to repurchase shares of the Company’s outstanding common stock and suspended the declaration and/or payment of dividends until further notice. We have also reduced production rates in our commercial business to reflect the impact of COVID-19 on the industry. We are executing on our plans to reduce our workforce through a combination of voluntary and involuntary layoffs and natural turnover. We have recorded severance costs for approximately 19,000 employees. In the fourth quarter of 2020, we began using our common stock in lieu of cash to fund Company contributions to our 401(k) plans. In December 2020, in lieu of merit pay increases, we awarded most of our employees a one-time stock grant that will vest in three years. We have reduced discretionary spending, including reducing or deferring research and development and capital expenditures. We expect these actions will further enable the Company to conserve cash.
We are also working with our customers and supply chain to accelerate receipts and conserve cash. For example, the United States Department of Defense (U.S. DoD) has taken steps to work with its industry partners to increase liquidity in the form of increased progress payment rates and reductions in withholds among other initiatives. We also deferred certain tax payments in 2020 pursuant to the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. The CARES Act also included a five-year net operating loss carryback provision which enabled us to benefit from certain 2020 losses and resulted in tax refunds of $1.3 billion in the third quarter of 2021.
In July 2020, we announced our business transformation efforts to assess our business across five key pillars: infrastructure, overhead and organization, portfolio and investments, supply chain health, and operational excellence. Within the infrastructure pillar we are assessing our overall facility requirements in light of reduced demand in our commercial businesses and remote and virtual work opportunities for large numbers of our workforce. We also anticipate a reduction in office space needs compared to our pre-COVID capacity. However, as we consolidate our footprint, terminate leases, and dispose of properties, we may incur near term adverse impacts to earnings. The overhead and organization pillar is focused on our cost structure and how we are organized so we can right size our workforce and simplify and reduce management layers and bureaucracy. The portfolio and investments pillar includes aligning our portfolio and investments to focus on our core business and the changes in market conditions. The supply chain pillar is focused on supply chain health and stability, reducing indirect procurement spend and streamlining our transportation, logistics, and warehousing approach. The operational excellence pillar is focused on improving performance, enhancing quality, and reducing rework. These activities are not intended to constrain our capacity, but rather to enable the Company to emerge stronger and be more resilient when the market recovers.
Based on our current best estimates of market demand, planned production rates, timing of cash receipts and expenditures, our ability to successfully implement further actions to improve liquidity, as well as our ability to access additional liquidity, if needed, we believe it is probable that we will be able to fund our operations for the foreseeable future.
Use of Estimates
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. We believe that the accounting estimates and assumptions included in these financial statements are appropriate and reflect increased uncertainties surrounding the severity and duration of the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, however actual results could differ from those estimates.
Long-term Contracts
Changes in estimated revenues, cost of sales, and the related effect on operating income are recognized using a cumulative catch-up adjustment which recognizes in the current period the cumulative effect of the changes on current and prior periods based on a long-term contract’s percentage-of-completion.
9

When the current estimates of total sales and costs for a long-term contract indicate a loss, a provision for the entire reach-forward loss on the long-term contract is recognized.
Net cumulative catch-up adjustments to prior periods' revenue and earnings, including certain reach-forward losses, across all long-term contracts were as follows:
