The China Automotive Systems cash flow statement is one of the three reports that the company generates every quarter. While its important to look at the China Automotive Systems 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 China Automotive Systems 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. This statement can tell if a company is running out of money while still being profitable and is useful in China Automotive Systems stock analysis. China Automotive Systems had a positive net income cash flow of $11.06M for the latest quarter. This report is very useful in measuring the short term viability of a company. China Automotive Systems has a negative cash and cash equivalents change of $-31.81M. View details of China Automotive Systems cash flows for latest & last 40 quarters.
