during a period.
To summarize the operating, investing, and financing activities of the

The cash flow statement helps users to assess a company’s
liquidity, financial flexibility, operating capabilities, and risk.
The statement of cash flows is useful because it provides
answers to the following important questions:
Where did cash come from?
What was cash used for?
What was the change in the cash balance?

Specifically, the information in a statement of cash flows, if used
with information in the other financial statements, helps external
users to assess:
1. A company’s ability to generate positive future net
cash flows,
2. A company’s ability to meet its obligations and pay
3. A company’s need for external financing,
4. The reasons for differences between a company’s net
income and associated cash receipts and payments,
5. Both the cash and noncash aspects of a company’s
financing and investing transactions.

available in the other financial statements?

Where did cash come from?
What was cash used for?

this one statement
Operating, financing and investing cash flows
Net income does not always tell the whole story about

A statement of cash flows is an excellent forecasting tool.
Review of terms
Cash and cash equivalents
It is a short-term, highly liquid investment.
It must be readily convertible to cash and it must be so near to
maturity that there is insignificant risks of changes in value due to
changes in interest rate.

Noncash revenues and expenses
Net income includes items that were neither cash inflow nor cash outflows:

Depreciation expense
Accretion expense on asset retirement obligation
Amortization of intangibles
Impairment loss on goodwill and intangibles
Earnings of affiliated companies accounted for using the equity method
Impairment losses on other noncurrent assets
Compensation expense related to stock options

Net income also includes gains and losses from investing and financing activities
Gain ≠ cash received (unless carrying value was zero)
Even when there is a loss, cash might have been received

Net income must be adjusted for these items to get the cash provided by operations – part of the
reconciling schedule or “indirect method”

For other items, there are revenues/expenses as well as cash flows but the amounts are different:

Bond interest expense ≠ bond interest paid (if bonds were sold at premium or discount)
Sales were not all collected in cash (bad debts, other changes in Accounts Receivable)
Purchases were not necessarily paid for during period (change in Accounts Payable)
Income tax expense ≠ income taxes paid due to deferred tax assets/liabilities as well as income
taxes refunds receivable or unpaid taxes owed
