Boeing and interesting details

Boeing is trying to cope with problems created by the 737 Max project. On Monday, Boeing reported the first annual loss in more than two decades.

According to the official information, Boeing lost $636 million in 2019. It is important that the company posted a first annual loss since 1997. For example, Boeing’s profit in 2018 reached $10.46 billion. Also, revenues exceeded more than $100 billion.

However, Boeing was unable to replicate the success in 2019. Two deadly accidents eroded the trust in a once-thriving company.

The giant corporation is still struggling to deal with a crisis that killed all 346 people aboard the flights. Boeing’s bestselling model 737 Max, remains on the ground since March 2019. The manufacturer had to suspend the production of the planes. Moreover, the date when the plane will return to service remains unknown.

Let’s have a look at the financial results. It reported a loss of $2.33 per share for the fourth quarter of 2019.

Unfortunately, in the last three months, revenue declined by 37% to $17.91 billion. It means that in comparison with the same period in 2018, revenue fell from $28.34 billion to $17.91 billion.
