The First Merchants cash flow statement helps investors understand how well the company is managing its cash flows. While its important to look at the First Merchants 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 First Merchants 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. First Merchants stock analysis shows positive net income cash flow of $65.38M for 2015. This statement is important because profits alone cannot pay employees, or bills. Cash is required.   First Merchants had an outflow of $19.18M from operating activities, $207.95M inflow due to financing activities, and $214.4M spend due to investing activities for 2015.
