Cash flow from operations

Cash flow from operations

A firm's net cash inflow resulting directly from its regular operations (disregarding extraordinary items such as the sale of fixed assets or transaction costs associated with issuing securities), calculated as the sum of net income plus noncash expenses that are deducted in calculating net income.

Cash Flow From Operations

A ratio of a company's cash flow to either its net income or operating income. The latter ratio provides a more accurate description of a company's cash flow, while the former takes into account the effects of non-operation transactions on income. Cash flow from operations shows the difference, if any, between a company's reported income and actual cash on hand.
