Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
On October 26, 2020, The Boeing Company (“Boeing”) entered into a $3.1 billion, 364-day revolving credit agreement (the “364-Day Credit Agreement”) with Citigroup, N.A. (“Citibank”) and JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. (“JPMorgan”) as joint lead arrangers and joint book managers, JPMorgan as syndication agent and Citibank as administrative agent, and a syndicate of lenders as defined in the 364-Day Credit Agreement. This facility replaces Boeing’s previous 364-day credit agreement, which was scheduled to terminate on October 28, 2020. Boeing’s $3.2 billion three-year revolving credit agreement and $3.2 billion five-year revolving credit agreement, each entered into in 2019, remain in effect.

Under the 364-Day Credit Agreement, Boeing will pay a fee of between 0.15% and 0.35% per annum on the commitments, depending on Boeing’s credit rating. Borrowings under the 364-Day Credit Agreement that are not based on Eurodollar rates will bear interest at an annual rate equal to the highest of (1) the rate announced publicly by Citibank, from time to time, as its “base” rate, (2) the federal funds rate plus 0.50% and (3) the ICE benchmark settlement rate for US dollars for a period of one month plus 1.00%, plus between 0.1% and 0.9% per annum, depending on Boeing’s credit rating. Borrowings under the 364-Day Credit Agreement that are based on Eurodollar rates will generally bear interest based on an applicable ICE benchmark settlement rate plus between 1.1% and 1.9% per annum, depending on Boeing’s credit rating. The 364-Day Credit Agreement is scheduled to terminate on October 25, 2021, subject to Boeing’s right to, following payment of additional fees, convert outstanding borrowings into term loans with a maturity date that is the one-year anniversary of the termination date, as well as Boeing’s right to request that the lenders extend the term for an additional 364 days.

The 364-Day Credit Agreement contains customary terms and conditions, including covenants restricting Boeing’s ability to permit consolidated debt (as defined in the applicable agreement) in excess of 60% of Boeing’s total capital (as defined in the applicable agreement) or to incur liens, merge or consolidate with another entity. Events of default under the Credit Agreement include: (1) failure to pay outstanding principal or interest within five business days of when due, (2) determination that any representation or warranty was incorrect in any material respect when made, (3) failure to perform any other term, covenant or agreement, which failure is not remedied within 30 days of notice, (4) a cross-default with other debt in certain circumstances, (5) the incurrence of certain liabilities under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act and (6) bankruptcy and other insolvency events. If an event of default occurs and is continuing, the lenders would have the right to accelerate and require the repayment of all amounts outstanding under the applicable agreement and would not be required to advance any additional funds.
Certain of the lenders and their affiliates have performed, and may in the future perform, for Boeing and its subsidiaries, various banking, underwriting, and other financial services, for which they receive customary fees and expenses.

The foregoing description is qualified in its entirety by the 364-Day Credit Agreement, which is filed as exhibit 10.1 hereto.
