Operating Cash Flow

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 profit, while the former takes into account the effects of non-operation transactions on income. Operating cash flow shows the difference, if any, between a company's reported income and actual cash on hand.
