Company Report

Airbus Earnings: Production Growing but Still Bottlenecked by Supply Chain; Fair Value Estimate Flat

Wide-moat Airbus reported its first-quarter 2024 results, having delivered 124 commercial planes in the quarter, 20% of its 2024 goal of around 800 jets. Revenue and profits came in just a touch lower than our initial projections, and with the time value of money offset by a scaled-back delivery target for A321s in the year, we raised our fair value estimate from EUR 162 to EUR 163 per share and lowered it from $44 to $43.80 per US depository share because the dollar strengthened slightly since our last update.

Bulls Say, Bears Say

Bulls

Airbus’ A320 family continues to have a substantial lead in the valuable narrow-body market, and the A321XLR has the potential to open new long-range routes to low-cost carriers.

Bears

Aerospace remains a highly regulated space, and regulatory burden could increase globally subsequent to the grounding of the Boeing 737 MAX.
