Spirit AeroSystems to suspend Boeing 737 MAX production in January 2020
Friday, 20 December 2019

Spirit AeroSystems announced that Boeing directed the company yesterday to stop all 737 MAX deliveries to Boeing effective Jan. 1, 2020, due to Boeing's announced temporary suspension of 737 MAX production. Accordingly, Spirit will suspend 737 MAX production beginning on Jan. 1. Spirit will continue to communicate with Boeing regarding the timetable for resuming production.

Because revenue from 737 aircraft components represents more than 50 percent of Spirit's annual revenue, this suspension will have an adverse impact on Spirit's business, financial condition, results of operations, and cash flows. Additional financial information related to the suspension will be provided in Spirit's fourth quarter/full year 2019 earnings release.

Spirit is evaluating all potential actions to align its cost base with lower production levels expected in 2020. Decisions will be guided by a focus on what is best for the long-term interests of Spirit's stockholders and other stakeholders, including employees.
