The crash comes only days after jetmaker Boeing agreed to spend a $2.5 billion fine over fraud as well as conspiracy charges connected to its 737 MAX jet program.
The settlement calls for a criminal penalty of $243.6 zillion, based on the conduct of two former MAX program specialized pilots, as well as the establishment of a $500 million fund to provide compensation for families of the victims of the Lion Air and Ethiopian Airlines crashes, the company said.
Boeing said the deferred prosecution agreement with the Department of Justice, which it entered into on Thursday, is going to impact the company’s fourth quarter earnings by $743.5 zillion.
“I firmly believe that entering into this particular resolution is the best thing for us to do – a step which properly acknowledges how we fell short of the values of ours and expectations,” said CEO Dave Calhoun. “This resolution is a serious reminder to all of us of how critical our obligation of transparency to regulators is actually, and the negative effects that the business of ours is able to experience when any one of us falls short of those expectations.”
