Operating Cash Flow Ratio

Operating Cash Flow Ratio

A ratio of a company's operating cash flow to current liabilities. Operating cash flow is a measure of how much cash a company has on hand, while current liabilities show expenses it must pay in the near future. The operating cash flow ratio thus shows a company's ability to meet these liabilities without having to sell assets or take any similar actions.
