Boeing's transformation and shareholder value

When Boeing says it's committed to increasing shareholder value, what exactly does that mean? And how is the company going about doing it?

1Q earnings: solid performance despite charges

Boeing reported increased revenues and reduced earnings in the first quarter of 2002. Quarterly revenues totaled $13.8 billion, up 4 percent from the previous-year period. Net earnings for the period totaled $602 million, excluding non-recurring items and adoption of a new accounting standard, on operating margins of 7.4 percent. During the previous-year period, the company reported net earnings before non-recurring items of $761 million, on operating margins of 9.2 percent.
