Analyst Note

| Burkett Huey, CFA |

No-moat-rated Spirit AeroSystems reported improvement in the narrow-body market but continued difficulties in the wide-body market as domestic travel begins to return from pandemic lows but international travel remains muted. Revenue of $901 million, a 16.4% decrease from 2020, was in line with FactSet consensus estimates, but adjusted loss per share of $1.22 was roughly 42% below consensus estimates. We’re decreasing our fair value estimate for Spirit AeroSystems to $46.50 from $47 as near-term working capital headwinds and lower-than-anticipated 737 MAX shipset delivery guidance more than offset a time value of money increase.
