because cash is used to buy new equipment, buildings or short-termassets such as marketable securities. However, when a company divestsof an asset, the transaction is considered "cash in" for calculating cashfrom investing.FinancingChanges in debt, loans or dividends are accounted for in cash fromfinancing. Changes in cash from financing are "cash in" when capital israised, and they're "cash out" when dividends are paid. Thus, if acompany issues a bond to the public, the company receives cashfinancing; however, when interest is paid to bondholders, the company isreducing its cash. Tying the CFS with the Balance Sheet and Income Statement The cash flow statement is derived from the income statement and thebalance sheet. Net earnings from the income statement are the figurefrom which the information on the CFS is deduced. As for the balancesheet, the net cash flow in the CFS from one year to the next should equalthe increase or decrease of cash between the two consecutive balancesheets that apply to the period that the cash flow statement covers. (Forexample, if you are calculating a cash flow for the year 2000, the balancesheets from the years 1999 and 2000 should be used.)A company can use a cash flow statement to predict future cash flow,which helps with matters in budgeting. For investors, the cash flowreflects a company's financial health: basically, the more cash availablefor business operations, the better. However, this is not a hard and fastrule. Sometimes a negative cash flow results from a company's growthstrategy in the form of expanding its operations.By adjusting earnings, revenues, assets and liabilities, the investor canget a very clear picture of what some people consider the most importantaspect of a company: how much cash it generates and, particularly, howmuch of that cash stems from core operations.Q4.
