|Boeing hosts buy-siders,
sell-siders in St. Louis
Boeing held its Annual Investor Conference in St. Louis late last month, where more than 150 investors and analysts received the latest update on Boeing's financial performance and outlook.
During the two-day event, Chairman and CEO Phil Condit, Chief Financial Officer Mike Sears, and the leaders of the company's business units provided investors with an in-depth assessment of the company's financial health. Investors also were able to get a first-hand look at the activities at Military Aircraft and Missile Systems, including a tour of the F/A-18E/F Super Hornet production line. Last year, the conference was held in Seattle. Plans call for annual conference venues to be rotated around the company's various business units.
Boeing Capital bonds available to individual investors
Corporate bonds such as those offered by Boeing and Boeing Capital Corporation are usually offered for sale to institutional investors such as banks and insurance companies. Its not uncommon for prices to begin at $100,000.
However, Boeing Capital, Incapital LLC, and Banc Of America Securities LLC have launched a program that could offer as much as $1 billion in Boeing Capital bonds for sale to individual investors. Priced in $1,000 increments and providing a variety of rates, maturity dates and interest-payment options, Boeing Capital InterNotes are aimed at making corporate bonds more available to individual investors.
Issuing bonds is one of the ways that Boeing Capital raises the funds it uses for financing Boeing products, as well as a wide variety of non-aerospace capital equipment.
Incapital is a Chicago-based investment bank founded in 1999 to deliver
original-issue, fixed-income products to the retail-investing public.
