Cash Flow from Financing Activities

Cash flow that a company acquires from a financing round instead of from operations. That is, cash flow from financing activities is the net amount that a company receives from issuing stock and bonds. Generally speaking, shareholders prefer to see positive cash flow from financing activities, but a negative amount could mean that a company is buying back its own stock, which drives up the share price. It is calculated thus:

Cash flow from financing activities = Cash from stock and bonds - debt service on bonds - dividends paid to stockholders - Stock buybacks - called debt.
