Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

(Unaudited)

(Dollars in millions)

Note 1 – Basis of Presentation

Boeing Capital Corporation (together with its subsidiaries, referred to as “us,” “we,” “our” or the “Company”) is an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of The Boeing Company (Boeing). We prepared the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and notes required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for complete financial statements. In our opinion all normal recurring adjustments necessary for a fair presentation are reflected in the condensed consolidated financial statements. Operating results for the period ended March 31, 2008 are not necessarily indicative of the results for the full year. The condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in our 2007 Annual Report on Form 10-K.

Note 2 – Transactions with Boeing

As an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of Boeing, our mission is to arrange for the financing of products manufactured by Boeing. When third party financing is not available, we may provide such financing directly.

We have a number of general contractual arrangements with Boeing to facilitate our operations including, among others, a support agreement, tax sharing agreement and an agreement allowing us to borrow under Boeing’s committed revolving line of credit. We also have an intercompany borrowing arrangement with Boeing.

In addition, we may require other forms of support from Boeing with respect to certain financing transactions we undertake. This support may take the form of intercompany guarantees, subsidies, remarketing agreements or other support arrangements.

There can be no assurances that these intercompany agreements and arrangements will not be terminated or modified by us and Boeing. However, our and Boeing’s ability to terminate or modify the support agreement is subject to certain conditions. See Item 8. Financial Statements and Supplementary Data, Note 3 of our 2007 Annual Report on Form 10-K.

At March 31, 2008, we were the beneficiary under $2,222 of guarantees from Boeing which mitigates our risk with respect to portfolio assets totaling $2,937.

Intercompany guarantee amounts by aircraft type are summarized as follows:

 

      March 31, 2008    December 31, 2007
     

Guarantee

Amount

  

Carrying

Value

Note 4 – Debt

Debt, including the net effects of interest rate swap revaluation adjustments and unamortized deferred debt costs, consisted of the following:

 

(Interest rates are the contractual rates at March 31, 2008)    March 31,
2008
   December 31,
2007

3.60% - 7.58% fixed rate notes due through 2017

   $ 4,088    $ 4,050

4.03% - 4.35% floating rate notes due through 2023

     120      120

4.22% - 5.79% non-recourse notes due through 2013

     70      71

3.20% capital lease obligation due through 2015

     77      86
   $ 4,355    $ 4,327
 

At March 31, 2008, and December 31, 2007, we had interest rate swaps which effectively convert debt of $1,500 and $1,507 from fixed rate to floating rate and $92 and $92 from floating rate to fixed rate.

The most restrictive covenants in our debt agreements require us to (a) limit the payment of cash dividends to the extent that our consolidated assets would be less than 115% of our consolidated liabilities (excluding deferred taxes) after dividend payments and (b) restrict the amount of liens on our property to secure indebtedness to 15% or less of consolidated assets, other than liens specifically excluded. At March 31, 2008, we were in compliance with these covenants.

Note 5 – Commitments and Contingencies

Litigation

Various legal proceedings and claims are pending or have been asserted against us. We believe that the final outcome of these proceedings and claims will not have a material adverse effect on our earnings, cash flows and/or financial position.

Bankruptcies

At March 31, 2008 and December 31, 2007, ATA Holdings Corp. (ATA) accounted for $151 and $152 of our total assets. At March 31, 2008, the ATA portfolio consisted of four operating leases for 757 aircraft. On April 2, 2008 ATA filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. On April 8, 2008, the bankruptcy court approved ATA’s request to reject the leases and return the aircraft to us. At March 31, 2008, ATA was current on all obligations and these operating lease aircraft remain classified as non-performing assets. As of April 22, 2008 we have recovered the aircraft and are in discussions with other customers regarding redeployment.

Restructurings and Restructuring Requests

In addition, from time to time, certain customers have requested a restructuring of their transactions with us. As of March 31, 2008, we have not reached agreement on any restructuring requests that would have a material adverse effect on our earnings, cash flows and/or financial position.

Commitments

At March 31, 2008, we and Boeing had unfunded financing commitments of $7,500, resulting from firm contracts, options for deliveries or proposals as part of sales campaigns. These commitments are provided to give Boeing customers reasonable assurance of financing in connection with orders of Boeing products in advance of delivery. However, customers typically seek lower cost financing from other sources prior to actual delivery. In addition, we continue to work with third party financiers to provide alternative financing to customers and eliminate the need for our financing. Based on historical experience and anticipated capital market acceptance of Boeing aircraft covered by Boeing’s and our current commitments, we anticipate that a significant portion of these commitments will not be exercised by the customer or will expire without being fully drawn upon. To the extent we are obligated to provide financing, such financing generally includes participation by engine manufacturers which further reduces our obligation. Therefore, the reported amount of commitments does not necessarily represent a future

net cash requirement. However, we expect to ultimately provide funding for those commitments which are exercised, whether they are Boeing’s or our commitments. If there were requirements to fund all Boeing’s and our commitments, the timing in which these commitments may be funded (based on estimated earliest funding dates as of March 31, 2008) is as follows:

April through December 2008

     1,250
   $ 7,500

Does not reflect the revision of the 787 program schedule announced in April 2008 which will delay certain of these commitments.

Note 6 – Fair Value of Financial Instruments

Effective January 1, 2008, we partially adopted Statement of Financial Accounting Standards (SFAS) No. 157, Fair Value Measurements (SFAS No. 157) and adopted this Statement for our assets and liabilities shown in the table below. SFAS No. 157 clarifies the definition of fair value, prescribes methods for measuring fair value, establishes a fair value hierarchy based on the inputs used to measure fair value, and expands disclosures about the use of fair value measurements. The partial adoption of SFAS No. 157 did not have a material impact on our fair value measurements. Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) Staff Position SFAS No. 157-2, Effective Date of FASB Statement No. 157, permits us to defer the recognition and measurement of our nonfinancial assets and nonfinancial liabilities until January 1, 2009. At March 31, 2008, we did not have any nonfinancial assets or nonfinancial liabilities that are recognized or disclosed at fair value.

The following table presents our assets and liabilities that are measured at fair value on a recurring basis and are categorized using the three levels of fair value hierarchy.

The EETC is valued based on trading prices of similar instruments. Our derivatives consist of United States dollar denominated interest rate swaps, and their fair values are determined using cash flows discounted at relevant market interest rates in effect at the period close.

Certain assets are measured at fair value on a non-recurring basis. For the three months ended March 31, 2008, impaired receivables with a carrying amount of $15 were written down to their fair value of $8, which was determined using observable inputs (Level 2). The fair value of impaired receivables is based on the market value for the related aircraft collateral.

Note 7 – Concentrations

A significant portion of our portfolio is concentrated among a few customers and in distinct geographic regions, particularly in the United States. Our portfolio is also concentrated by varying degrees across aircraft product types and vintages. Our concentration risk is mitigated in part by intercompany guarantees from Boeing with respect to certain portfolio assets, which primarily relate to 717 aircraft.

Portfolio carrying values for our five largest customers were as follows:

Note 8 – Discontinued Operations

On May 24, 2004, we entered into a purchase and sale agreement with General Electric Capital Corporation (GECC) to sell substantially all of the assets related to our Commercial Financial Services business. The final asset sale closed December 27, 2004.

Part of the purchase and sale agreement with GECC includes a loss sharing arrangement for losses that may exist at the end of the initial and subsequent financing periods of the transferred portfolio assets, or in some instances, prior to the end of the financing period, such as certain events of default and repossession. The loss sharing arrangement provides that cumulative net losses (if any) are to be shared between us and GECC. The provisions effectively limit our exposure to any losses to $245. At March 31, 2008, our maximum exposure to loss associated with the loss sharing arrangement was $227, for which we have accrued a liability of $54.

The reserve under the loss sharing arrangement, which is included in Other liabilities was as follows:

Forward-Looking Information is Subject to Risk and Uncertainty

Certain statements in this report may constitute “forward-looking” statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Words such as “expects,” “intends,” “plans,” “projects,” “believes,” “estimates,” and similar expressions are used to identify these forward-looking statements. These statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve risks, uncertainties and assumptions that are difficult to predict. Forward-looking statements are based upon assumptions as to future events that may not prove to be accurate. Actual outcomes and results may differ materially from what is expressed or forecasted in these forward-looking statements. As a result, these statements speak only as of the date they were made and we undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by federal securities laws. Our actual results and future trends may differ materially depending on a variety of factors, including:

 

   

the financial condition of the airline industry, which could be adversely affected by changes in general economic conditions, the liquidity of the global financial markets as well as events such as war, terrorist attacks, a serious health epidemic, increasing global economic concerns and fuel prices;

 

   

the impact of bankruptcies or restructurings on commercial airline customers;

 

   

the impact of changes in aircraft valuations;

 

   

the sufficiency of our liquidity, including access to capital markets;

 

   

the impact on us of strategic decisions by The Boeing Company (Boeing), including the amount of financing provided to support the sale of Boeing products, the level and types of transactional or other support made available to us by Boeing and the ending of production of certain aircraft programs;

 

   

a decline in Boeing’s or our financial performance, outlook or credit ratings;

 

   

our ability to meet our contractual obligations, including outstanding financing commitments;

 

   

reduced lease rates as a result of competition in the used aircraft market, or the inability to maintain aircraft on lease at satisfactory lease rates;

 

   

financial, legal, tax, regulatory, legislative and accounting changes or actions that may affect the overall performance of our business;

 

   

the adequacy of coverage of our allowance for losses on receivables;

 

   

volatility in our earnings due to the timing of asset sales, other risk mitigation activities and fluctuations in our portfolio size; and

 

   

other risk factors listed from time to time in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

Please see Item 1A. Risk Factors of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2007, for a description of risks and uncertainties that could cause our actual results to differ materially from the expectations reflected in our forward-looking statements.

Overview

During the three months ended March 31, 2008, we continued to focus on supporting Boeing’s major businesses and managing our overall financial exposures.

At March 31, 2008, our portfolio consisted of equipment under operating leases, finance leases, notes and other receivables, investments and assets held for sale or re-lease. At March 31, 2008, we owned 292 commercial aircraft and four C-40 aircraft and had partial ownership or security interest in an additional 45 aircraft.

Our portfolio at March 31, 2008 decreased to $6.3 billion from $6.5 billion at December 31, 2007. The following table summarizes the net change in our total portfolio:

At March 31, 2008 and December 31, 2007, we had $75 million and $86 million of assets that were held for sale or re-lease, all of which had firm contracts to be sold or placed on lease. As a result of ATA Holdings Corp. (ATA) filing for bankruptcy protection in April 2008, we have an additional $151 million of aircraft that have been returned as of April 22, 2008 and we are in active redeployment discussions with other customers which we expect to complete in the second quarter of 2008. Additionally, aircraft subject to leases with a carrying value of approximately $365 million are scheduled to be returned off lease in the next 12 months. These aircraft are being remarketed or the leases are being extended and $183 million were committed at March 31, 2008.

Our net income was $43 million for the three months ended March 31, 2008 compared with $50 million for the same period in 2007, a decrease of $7 million. The decrease in our net income was primarily due to lower interest income on notes receivable and lower investment income partially offset by lower interest expense during the first three months of 2008.

Consolidated Results of Operations

Revenue

Revenue was $185 million for the three months ended March 31, 2008 compared with $213 million for the same period in 2007, a decrease of $28 million.

Interest income on notes receivable was $14 million for the three months ended March 31, 2008, a decrease of $22 million compared with the same period in 2007 primarily due to a decrease in the weighted average balance of our notes receivable as a result of the prepayment of certain notes in 2007.

Investment income was $2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2008, a decrease of $4 million compared with the same period in 2007 primarily due to a lower investment balance as a result of the scheduled repayment of an investment in January 2008.

Expenses

Expenses were $124 million for the three months ended March 31, 2008 compared with $140 million for the same period in 2007, a decrease of $16 million.

Interest expense was $62 million for the three months ended March 31, 2008, a decrease of $17 million compared with the same period in 2007 primarily due to a decrease in the balance of debt outstanding as a result of scheduled debt repayments.

The recovery of losses was $6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2008, compared with a recovery of $8 million for the same period in 2007. The reduction in our allowance through a recovery for losses was primarily due to finance leases and notes receivable run off exceeding declines in aircraft collateral values.

Provision for income tax

Provision for income tax was $23 million for the three months ended March 31, 2008, a decrease of $4 million compared with the same period in 2007, primarily due to a decrease in pre-tax income.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Our cash and cash equivalents balance was $637 million at March 31, 2008, an increase from $463 million at December 31, 2007. The following is a summary of the change in our cash and cash equivalents for the three months ended March 31:

 

(Dollars in millions)    2008     2007  

Net cash provided by operating activities

   $ 39     $ 128  

Net cash provided by investing activities

     183       91  

Net cash used in financing activities

     (48 )     (781 )

Net increase (decrease) in cash and cash equivalents

   $ 174     $ (562 )
   

Operating activities

During the three months ended March 31, 2008, net cash provided by operating activities included net income from operations of $43 million. We had net adjustments for non-cash items of $86 million which primarily related to depreciation expense and an increase in deferred income taxes. We also had a net decrease in our operating assets and liabilities of $90 million primarily resulting from a decrease of $42 million in accrued interest expense and a decrease of $64 million in income taxes payable.

During the three months ended March 31, 2007, net cash provided by operating activities included net income from operations of $50 million. We had net adjustments for non-cash items of $42 million which primarily related to depreciation expense. We also had a net increase in our net operating assets and liabilities of $36 million.

Investing activities

During the three months ended March 31, 2008, net cash provided by investing activities primarily included a scheduled repayment of an investment in the amount of $135 million and principal payments of leases, notes and other receivables of $50 million.

During the three months ended March 31, 2007, net cash provided by investing activities included $107 million relating to asset run off and an early customer repayment of notes receivable.

Financing activities

During the three months ended March 31, 2008, net cash used for financing activities included scheduled debt repayments of $13 million and cash dividends to Boeing of $35 million.

During the three months ended March 31, 2007, net cash used for financing activities included scheduled debt repayments of $783 million and cash dividends (including the return of capital) to Boeing of $173 million offset by intercompany borrowings of $175 million from Boeing.

Outstanding debt at March 31, 2008 and December 31, 2007 was $4.4 billion and $4.3 billion, of which $762 million will be due in the next 12 months. During the three months ended March, 31 2008, we had no commercial paper borrowings outstanding. Our leverage (ratio of debt to equity) at March 31, 2008 and December 31, 2007 was 5.0-to-1.

We require liquidity, primarily to fund financing commitments, meet debt obligations and fund our operating expenses. In the near term, we believe that our cash from operations and other receipts from our portfolio, which may include asset sales and securitizations, will be sufficient to satisfy existing commitments and plans. To the extent we require financial flexibility to meet potential business funding requirements we also have the ability to issue commercial paper and other debt, obtain funding from Boeing or limit new business volume.

We believe we have adequate borrowing capacity. We have $1.5 billion available under Boeing’s committed revolving credit line agreements for general corporate purposes. In addition, we have a Support Agreement with Boeing under which Boeing has committed to make contributions to us if our fixed-charge coverage ratio, as defined in the Support Agreement, falls below 1.05-to-1 on a four-quarter rolling basis.

Table of Contents

Risks that could affect our sources of liquidity include among others:

 

   

a severe or prolonged downturn in the economy,

   

significant restructurings, defaults or bankruptcies by airlines,

   

disruptions in the global capital markets, and

   

a decrease in our and/or Boeing’s credit ratings and/or financial performance.

We continually assess our leverage, as measured by our debt to equity ratio, in light of the risks in our business, including those set forth in Item 1A. Risk Factors of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2007.

Credit Ratings

Our access to capital is affected by ratings of our debt by credit rating agencies. As a wholly owned finance company, our credit ratings are closely tied to those of Boeing due to the Support Agreement entered into between Boeing and us in December 2003 and transactional support and guarantees. Our ratings and spreads could be impacted positively or negatively by changing perceptions of Boeing, the airline industry, the defense industry or of Boeing’s competitive position. It is possible that these changes could affect our access to the capital markets. We believe our access to the capital markets is adequate.

Our credit ratings are as follows:

 

Debt

  Standard & Poor’s  

Moody’s Investors

Service

  Fitch Ratings

Short-term

  A-1   P-1   F1

Senior

  A+   A2   A+

On January 16, 2008, Fitch Ratings changed their outlook on the A+ rating to stable from positive.

Additional Disclosures Regarding Allowance for Losses on Receivables

The following table reconciles the changes in the allowance for losses on receivables for the three months ended March 31, 2008 and 2007. Column 3 presents this information, calculated in accordance with our accounting policies, if the impact of intercompany guarantees from Boeing were excluded. The exclusion of the impact of intercompany guarantees shown in Column 2 would increase the applicable exposure for various receivables. Management believes that the presentation of this information provides more complete information on the effect of intercompany guarantees provided by Boeing.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM

To the Board of Directors and Shareholder of

Boeing Capital Corporation

Renton, Washington

We have reviewed the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet of Boeing Capital Corporation and subsidiaries (the “Company”) as of March 31, 2008, and the related condensed consolidated statements of operations, shareholder’s equity and comprehensive income, and cash flows for the three-month periods ended March 31, 2008 and 2007. These interim financial statements are the responsibility of the Company’s management.

We conducted our reviews in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). A review of interim financial information consists principally of applying analytical procedures and making inquiries of persons responsible for financial and accounting matters. It is substantially less in scope than an audit conducted in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States), the objective of which is the expression of an opinion regarding the financial statements taken as a whole. Accordingly, we do not express such an opinion.

Based on our reviews, we are not aware of any material modifications that should be made to such condensed consolidated interim financial statements for them to be in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

We have previously audited, in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States), the consolidated balance sheet of Boeing Capital Corporation and subsidiaries as of December 31, 2007, and the related consolidated statements of operations, shareholder’s equity and comprehensive income, and cash flows for the year then ended (not presented herein); and in our report dated February 13, 2008, we expressed an unqualified opinion on those consolidated financial statements. In our opinion, the information set forth in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2007 is fairly stated, in all material respects, in relation to the consolidated balance sheet from which it has been derived.
