The Netflix cash flow statement is one of the three reports that the company generates every quarter. While its important to look at the Netflix 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 Netflix 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. Netflix issued $3.82M worth of NFLX shares. The cash flow statement helps in the Netflix stock analysis by providing more information for evaluating changes in assets, liabilities and equities. Netflix had an outflow of $461.94M from operating activities, $16.64M inflow due to financing activities, and $23.98M gain due to investing activities for 2016-Q3.
