The BlackBerry cash flow statement is one of the important reports considered by investors doing a fundamental analysis of the company. While its important to look at the BlackBerry debt position, the cash flow statement becomes equally important because public companies use accrual accounting. For example, if a company sells a product which gets counted as BlackBerry revenue but does not convert to cash because it does not receive payment in the same quarter, it affects the cash position for that period. BlackBerry cash flow analysis is possible because this statement breaks down how balance sheet accounts and income statement items affect cash and cash equivalents.  BlackBerry had cash and cash equivalents of $1.23B at the beginning of the year and $957M at year end for 2016.   BlackBerry had an outflow of $556M from operating activities, $94M spend due to financing activities, and $734M gain due to investing activities for 2016.
