Non-Operating Cash Flow

The cash flow a company gives or receives from sources other than its operations. Non-operating cash flows are usually non-recurring. Examples of non-operating cash flows include borrowing, a new issue of stock, and a self-tender offer. While non-operating cash flow is not a good indicator of profitability, it can help an analyst find a company's cost of capital and its success in investing its revenue or earnings. Non-operating cash flows are reported on a company's balance sheet.
