Apple Inc. Analysis of Cash Flow Statement




Apple Inc. Analysis of Cash Flow Statement
Executive Summary
Cash flow refers to net inflow and outflow of cash and cash equivalents that gets in and
goes out of the business. If the cash flow is positive, it indicates that the liquid assets of the
company are increasing. It enables the company to settle its debts, pay the expenses and reinvest
the cash in business. If the cash flow is negative, it indicates that the liquid assets of the company
are reducing. A cash flow is composed of three categories. These three categories are cash flow
from operating activities, cash flow from investing activities and cash flow from financing
activities. Operating cash flow is related to the day to day business operations of the company. It
tells how much cash is generated from the operations of business and how much cash is used.
Cash flows from investing activities show investments made in business in form of long term
assets, acquisitions, securities, etc. or the money realized from their sale. Cash flow from
financing activities shows the cash received by the company to finance its operations. It includes
cash received from issue of shares, bonds, dividend paid, repayment of bonds, payment of
interest, payment of dividends, etc.
