The Tenneco cash flow statement is one of the important reports considered by investors doing a fundamental analysis of the company. While its important to look at the Tenneco 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 Tenneco 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. Tenneco had cash and cash equivalents of $287M at beginning of quarter and $347M at quarter end for 2016-Q4. Tenneco cash flow analysis tells whether or not the company has enough cash for its day to day activities, and for investing for future growth. Tenneco saw a outflow of $115M from investing activities for 2016-Q4. View details of Tenneco cash flows for latest & last 40 quarters.
