Cash flow from operations

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.
