Boeing has it said it is pleased with the response to its bond offering which began May 1, and is expected to raise $25 billion by Monday, May 4.
The bond offering includes debt instruments with an aggregate principal amount of $25 billion across seven tranches with maturities ranging from three to 40 years, a Boeing statement said.
“As a result of the response, and pending the closure of this transaction expected Monday, May 4, we do not plan to seek additional funding through the capital markets or the U.S. government options at this time,” the statement read.
The bond issue is one of several stepsBoeing is taking to keep liquidity flowing through its business and the 17,000 companies in its industry’s supply chain.
The robust demand for the offering reflects strong support for the long-term strength of Boeing and the aviation industry. It is also in part a result of the confidence in the market created by the CARES Act and federal support programs that have been put in place - a testament to the Administration, Congress and the Federal Reserve.
We will continue to assess our liquidity position as the health crisis and our dynamic business environment evolve.
