Boeing Reports Q3 Deliveries: Commercial Down, Defense Up

(NASDAQ, New York, 10 October 2016) Boeing's third-quarter 2016 commercial deliveries of 188 airplanes were down due to lower demand for the 737, 777 and 787 Dreamliners. During the release of first-quarter delivery numbers, CEO Muilenburg had revealed that the company is losing out on important contracts related to aircraft and satellites to overseas rivals due to a stand-off in Congress over the future of U.S Export-Import (Ex-Im) Bank. This has restricted the export credit agency's financing capabilities.
