Boeing Capital Corporation

BCC’s year-end debt balance decreased slightly to $5.6 billion from the third quarter balance of $5.7 billion.

BCC continued to deliver strong financial performance while reducing portfolio risk. For the quarter, BCC delivered pre-tax earnings of $37 million driven by continued strong financing portfolio performance and aircraft finance restructurings (Table 6). BCC’s portfolio balance at the end of the fourth quarter was $8.0 billion, down from $8.2 billion at the end of the third quarter and $9.2 billion in the fourth quarter of 2005 on normal portfolio run-off, asset sales and depreciation. Revenues for the fourth quarter increased slightly to $241 million due to aircraft finance restructurings. For the year, BCC revenues grew 6 percent to $1.0 billion, and pre-tax income increased 25 percent to a record $291 million.
