Creating value through discriminating financing solutions
Boeing Capital Corporation is a global provider of innovative financing solutions. Its primary mission is to support the other Boeing business units by arranging, structuring and/or providing financing to assist in the sale and delivery of Boeing products and services. A wholly owned subsidiary of The Boeing Company, Boeing Capital provides comprehensive customer financing support, primarily utilizing third-party financing, while aggressively managing risk and delivering strong financial performance.
With more than four decades of experience in structured financing, leasing, and complex restructuring and trading, Boeing Capital's team of seasoned professionals provides tailored financing solutions for commercial and military aircraft, satellites and launch vehicles. The company's US $4.1 billion portfolio is comprised of approximately 250 commercial airplanes, which include a broad range of newer, more efficient Boeing products.
Organization: Under the leadership of President Mike Cave, Boeing Capital has approximately 160 employees, located primarily at its headquarters in Renton, Wash. An additional U.S. office is located in Los Angeles, California, along with international offices in Beijing, London, Hong Kong and Moscow.
Boeing Capital offers the advantages of the strength and global reach of The Boeing Company, along with a team that has unrivaled understanding of the commercial aviation industry, expertise in creating tailored financing solutions and strong relationships with the financial community.
The business unit is divided into two operating groups: Aircraft Financial Services and Defense, Space & Security Financial Services.
Aircraft Financial Services: Assists commercial aircraft customers by arranging and structuring asset-based financing, managing technical assets, and providing a broad range of efficient financing solutions for Boeing Commercial Airplanes products and services. Expertise and product offerings include backstop commitments, operating leases, financing leases, sale/leasebacks, freighter conversion financing, long- and short-term financing, and senior and subordinated secured loans.
Led by Tim Myers, vice president and general manager, Aircraft Financial Services works closely with Boeing Commercial Airplanes customers to develop aircraft financing solutions. Working with commercial financial institutions, the group is proactively engaged with the U.S. Export-Import Bank and other export credit agencies to ensure availability of adequate and reasonably priced financing for developing customers and regions. Aircraft Financial Services is playing an integral role, along with the Aviation Working Group, in improving the global aircraft financing infrastructure and ratifying the Cape Town Treaty, which will improve the legal framework for international asset-based aircraft financing. The group also is actively engaged to enhance and expand the capital markets by managing a comprehensive investor outreach program that is capturing the financial community's requirements and ensuring that they understand the Boeing product strategy and the significant value discriminators that differentiate Boeing from its competition.
Defense, Space & Security Financial Services: While The Boeing Company has long been in the business of helping its space, defense and communications customers arrange financing, Boeing Capital's defense, space & security financial services unit was formed in 2000 to provide additional focus and expertise in arranging and structuring financing solutions for government and commercial customers around the world. Vice President Mark Bertrand and his group work closely with the involved business unit to help arrange funding for satellites, military transports, tankers and rotorcraft. Specialized projects and programs include military-related products, international defense financing, private-public partnerships, project financing, launch vehicles, satellites and related space systems.
