Boeing CEO Message to Employees on Spirit AeroSystems Acquisition


I'm pleased to announce that we've reached a definitive agreement to acquire Spirit AeroSystems. We believe this deal is in the best interest of the flying public, our airline customers, the employees of Spirit and Boeing, and the country more broadly.

By once again combining our companies, we can fully align our commercial production systems, including our Safety and Quality Management Systems, and our workforce to the same priorities, incentives and outcomes – centered on safety and quality. This is an opportunity to bring back critical airplane manufacturing work on Boeing airplanes into our factories – where Boeing and Spirit world-class engineers and mechanics can work seamlessly together, focused on a common mission to build safe and quality airplanes for our customers.

Among the many actions we're taking as a company, this is one of the most significant in demonstrating our unwavering commitment to strengthen quality and make certain that Boeing is the company the world needs it to be.

Our acquisition of Spirit will include substantially all Boeing-related commercial operations, as well as additional commercial, defense and aftermarket operations. As part of the transaction, Boeing will work with Spirit to ensure the continuity of operations supporting Spirit's customers and programs we acquire, including working with the U.S. Department of Defense and Spirit defense customers regarding defense and security missions.

As we work to secure the necessary regulatory approvals, Boeing and Spirit will remain independent companies, but we will continue to work collaboratively with Spirit and its leadership to strengthen the quality and safety of Boeing's commercial airplanes.

The transaction is expected to close mid-2025 and is subject to the sale of the Spirit operations related to certain Airbus commercial work packages and the satisfaction of customary closing conditions, including regulatory and Spirit shareholder approvals.

As I've said before, we will be measured one airplane at a time. This agreement marks an important step in demonstrating Boeing's commitment to aviation safety.

Thank you for your hard work and dedication.

Dave
