While its important to look at the General Motors 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 General Motors 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. Items like capital purchases, bank loan payments etc. which have a direct impact on the cash position of a company come out through the statemement of cash flows and help an investor who undertakes the General Motors stock analysis. General Motors generated $16.55B cash from operating activities in 2016-Q4. General Motors has a negative cash and cash equivalents change of $-2.17B.
