The Monsanto cash flow statement is one of the three reports that the company generates every quarter. While its important to look at the Monsanto 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 Monsanto 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. Monsanto had cash and cash equivalents of $3.7B at beginning of quarter and $1.68B at quarter end for 2016-Q4.
