Sotheby's purchased $100.97M worth of BID shares. The cash flow statement helps in the Sotheby's stock analysis by providing more information for evaluating changes in assets, liabilities and equities. Sotheby's had an inflow of $110.79M from operating activities, $46.48M spend due to financing activities, and $111.86M gain due to investing activities for 2015.
