The Guaranties provide for the full and unconditional guarantee of all the outstanding publicly issued debt securities of BCC, representing approximately $1.8 billion of principal in the aggregate. The amounts subject to the Guaranties have been previously disclosed as outstanding debt obligations in the consolidated financial reports filed by Boeing with the SEC, and Boeing will continue to report BCC as a segment in its SEC reports.
