<p>"We executed well across the company as we delivered solid operating performance in the third quarter," said President and Chief Executive Officer <person>Jeff Turner</person>.  "Our results reflect improving performance as revenues and profitability increased and we recovered from the disrupted operations in the previous three quarters caused by the Machinists' strike at Boeing and the new ERP system implementation in the first half of 2009," Turner stated.  "We continue to support the 787 program and are preparing for production restart and ramp-up.  In addition, we continue to make good progress on other development programs as we work to grow and diversify our company," Turner added.</p>
<p/>
<p>"While we have seen some stabilization in the global economic outlook, we remain cautious regarding the outlook of the commercial aerospace market.  Our backlog remains strong and our strategy is on track to achieve long-term value creation for our customers, shareholders, and employees," Turner concluded.</p>
<p/>
<p>Spirit's backlog at the end of the third quarter of 2009 was <money>$28.2 billion</money>, flat from the end of the second quarter of 2009, as Airbus and Boeing third quarter backlog reductions were offset by a follow-on contract at Spirit <location>Europe</location> for 777 wing components.  Spirit calculates its backlog based on contractual prices for products and volumes from the published firm order backlogs of Airbus and Boeing, along with firm orders from other customers.</p>
<p/>
<p>Spirit updated its contract profitability estimates during the third quarter of 2009, resulting in a <money>$2 million</money> favorable cumulative catch-up adjustment, compared to a <money>$13 million</money> unfavorable cumulative catch-up adjustment for the third quarter of 2008, which was largely the result of the Machinists' strike at Boeing.</p>
<p/>
<p>Cash flow from operations was <money>$5 million</money> for the third quarter of 2009, compared to <money>$68 million</money> for the third quarter of 2008, primarily due to a decrease in cash advance receipts from customers of <money>$48 million</money> compared to the same period of 2008.

<p>During the third quarter, Spirit issued <money>$300 million</money> in senior unsecured notes with a coupon rate of 7.5% and a maturity in 2017.  A portion of the proceeds were used to pay down the outstanding revolver balance of <money>$200 million</money> prior to the close of the third quarter.</p>
<p/>
<p>Cash balances at the end of the third quarter of 2009 were <money>$207 million</money> and debt balances were <money>$884 million</money>.  During the third quarter of 2009, the company utilized its credit-line as it continued to invest in development programs.  All credit-line borrowings were paid down using a portion of the funds from the issuance of the senior unsecured notes.  At the end of the third quarter of 2009, the company's <money>$729 million</money> revolving credit facility was undrawn.  Approximately <money>$17 million</money> of the credit facility is reserved for financial letters of credit.</p>
<p/>
<p>The company's credit ratings remained unchanged at the end of the third quarter of 2009 with a BB rating at Standard & Poor's and a Ba3 rating at Moody's.</p>

    2009 Outlook
    
</pre>
<p>Spirit revenue guidance for the full-year 2009 has been updated to reflect movement of certain forecasted non-recurring contract settlements out of 2009.  Revenues are now expected to be between <money>$4.1</money> and <money>$4.2 billion</money> based on Boeing's 2009 delivery guidance of 480-485 aircraft; anticipated B787 deliveries consistent with our expectations following Boeing's announcement of the revised B787 schedule on <chron>August 27, 2009</chron>; 2009 expected Airbus deliveries of approximately 483 aircraft; internal Spirit forecasts for non-OEM production activity and non-Boeing and Airbus customers; and foreign exchange rates consistent with fourth quarter 2008 levels.</p>
<p/>
<p>Fully diluted earnings per share for 2009 remains unchanged and is expected to be between <money>$1.45</money> and <money>$1.55</money> per share after the increase in interest expense and fees associated with the recently issued senior unsecured notes.</p>
<p/>
<p>Cash flow from operations less capital expenditures, net of customer reimbursements, is now expected to be no more than a (<money>$150</money>) million use of cash in the aggregate, with capital expenditures of approximately <money>$225 million</money>.</p>
<p/>
<p>The effective tax rate is now forecasted to be approximately 30 percent for 2009.</p>
<p/>
<p>The guidance assumes the settlement and receipt of certain outstanding non-recurring contract payments associated with our development programs.  To the extent these forecasted payments are not received during the fourth quarter of 2009, they will represent a shift in revenues, earnings and cash flows from 2009 to 2010. (Table 3)</p>

Forward-looking statements generally can be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology such as "may," "will," "expect," "anticipate," "intend," "estimate," "believe," "project," "continue," "plan," "forecast," or other similar words. These statements reflect management's current views with respect to future events and are subject to risks and uncertainties, both known and unknown. Our actual results may vary materially from those anticipated in forward-looking statements. We caution investors not to place undue reliance on any forward-looking statements.  Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to: our ability to continue to grow our business and execute our growth strategy, including the timing and execution of new programs; our ability to perform our obligations and manage cost related to our new commercial and business aircraft development programs; reduction in the build rates of certain Boeing aircraft including, but not limited to, the B737 program, the B747 program, the B767 program and the B777 program, and build rates of the Airbus A320 and A380 programs, which could be affected by the impact of a deep recession on business and consumer confidence and the impact of continuing turmoil in the global financial and credit markets; declining business jet manufacturing rates and customer cancellations or deferrals as a result of the weakened global economy; the success and timely execution of key milestones such as first flight and delivery of Boeing's new B787 and Airbus' new A350 aircraft programs, including receipt of necessary regulatory approvals and customer adherence to their announced schedules; our ability to enter into supply arrangements with additional customers and the ability of all parties to satisfy their performance requirements under existing supply contracts with Boeing, Airbus, and other customers and the risk of nonpayment by such customers; any adverse impact on Boeing's and Airbus' production of aircraft resulting from cancellations, deferrals or reduced orders by their customers or labor disputes; any adverse impact on the demand for air travel or our operations from the outbreak of diseases such as the influenza outbreak caused by the H1N1 virus, avian influenza, severe acute respiratory syndrome or other epidemic or pandemic outbreaks; returns on pension plan assets and impact of future discount rate changes on pension obligations; our ability to borrow additional funds, or refinance debt; competition from original equipment manufacturers and other aerostructures suppliers; the effect of governmental laws, such as U.S. export control laws, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, environmental laws and agency regulations, both in the U.S. and abroad; the cost and availability of raw materials and purchased components; our ability to successfully extend or renegotiate our primary collective bargaining contracts with our labor unions; our ability to recruit and retain highly skilled employees and our relationships with the unions representing many of our employees; spending by the U.S. and other governments on defense; the possibility that our cash flows and borrowing facilities may not be adequate for our additional capital needs or for payment of interest on and principal of our indebtedness; our exposure under our revolving credit facility to higher interest payments should interest rates increase substantially; the outcome or impact of ongoing or future litigation and regulatory actions; and our exposure to potential product liability claims.  These factors are not exhaustive, and new factors may emerge or changes to the foregoing factors may occur that could impact our business. Except to the extent required by law, we undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.</p>
