Fitch Downgrades Boeing’s Outlook To ‘Negative’ On Production, Cashflow Challenges

Fitch Ratings downgraded outlook on Boeing (BA.N), opens new tab to “negative” from “stable” on Friday, amid a fallout from safety crisis impacting the U.S. planemaker’s production and cashflow.

The ratings agency, which reaffirmed its “BBB-” long-term issuer default rating, said it could stabilize the outlook if Boeing liquidates over 100 of its pre-2023 built 737 MAX and half of its 787 inventories by early 2025, along with increasing production of its MAX jets towards 38 per month.

Fitch’s downgrade follows similar moves by S&P and Moody’s earlier in the week on its bumpy cashflow.

Boeing has been under heavy regulatory scrutiny and lowered production of its 787 widebody jets, along with 737 MAX, after the cabin panel blew off an Alaska Airlines-operated (ALK.N), opens new tab 737 MAX 9 flight mid-air, forcing an emergency landing. – Reuters
