Highlights from CEO Calhoun’s interview on CNBC

Discussing the earnings report with CNBC’s Phil LeBeau on “Squawk on the Street”, CEO Dave Calhoun said:

Messier quarter than we would have liked. Familiar themes, supply chain constraints, COVID, inflation, have disproportionate impact on our company in one specific area; that’s our fixed price development contracts we do with our defense business.

The stock is now down a little under 30% for the year. Revenue from Commercial Airplanes, as per the American multinational, also took a hit due to the delay in wide-body aircraft deliveries. Commenting on inflationary pressures, the chief executive said:

We have more time than most because we’re long cycle business. Our contracts protect us to some extent. The second year when inflation begins to take a toll on consumers’ pocket, that’s when those numbers really matter to us. We’ll see if it causes a slowdown before we think about medium to long term pricing strategies.
