accounting cash flow of the firm. The statement of cash flows helps to explain the changes in accounting cash and equivalents 10 Statement of Cash Flows (Cont.) The first step in determining the change in cash is to figure out cash flow from operating activities. This is the cash flow that results from the firms normal activities producing and selling goods and services. The second step is to make an adjustment for cash flow from investing activities. The final step is to make an adjustment for cash flow from financing activities. Financing activities are the net payments to creditors and owners (excluding interest expense) made during the year.

11 Statement of Cash Flows (Cont.) The three components of the statement of cash flows are:1- Cash flow from Operating Activities 2- Cash flow from Investing Activities 3- Cash flow from Financing Activities 12 Statement of Cash Flows (example) Statement of Consolidated Cash Flows of XYZ Corporation XYZ Corporation Statement of Cash Flows 2006 Operations Net Income Depreciation Deferred taxes Changes in assets and liabilities
