Cash Flow Statement

A statement every publicly-traded company must file with the SEC each quarter indicating all cash inflows and cash outflows from all sources, whether they are business activities or the company's investments. This is considered one indication among many of a company's financial health. A business activity may be reported as income if a company has agreed to a contract, even if no money has actually changed hands; a cash flow statement seeks to avoid this by showing how much cash the company has on hand. It is also called an application of funds statement.
