The Tesla cash flow statement is one of the three reports that the company generates every quarter. While its important to look at the Tesla 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 Tesla 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. Tesla cash flow analysis is possible because this statement breaks down how balance sheet accounts and income statement items affect cash and cash equivalents.  Tesla had cash and cash equivalents of $1.91B at the beginning of the year and $1.2B at year end for 2015.   Tesla had an outflow of $467.16M from operating activities, $619.61M spend due to financing activities, and $683.11M spend due to investing activities for 2015.

The statement of cash flows can be categorized into three main sections:
  • Net Change in Cash and Cash Equivalents: Tesla cash reduced YoY to $-888.66M, meaning the company is unable to meet its expenditure and grow cash which will also eventually reflect in the Tesla stock price movement.
  • Tesla decreased its cash from operating activities to $467.16M in 2015. Operating activities include production of goods or creating a product or providing a service, and collecting payment for the same from customers. The cash generated from these activities is refered to as cash flow from operating activities.
  • Growth companies (typically most tech companies) spend heavily  on investing activities and this figure was negative at $-1.67B for TSLA stock. Sometimes a company might have a negative overall cash flow which may not be really bad if it is due to investment expenses. Hence it is important to check the cash flow from investment activities.
  • Cash Flow from financing activities: The cash inflow/outflow from financing activities was $1.52B for Tesla. The money accounted for under this head comes from external sources which includes lenders, investors and shareholders. Positive cash flow is generated when the company gets cash because of issuance of stocks or bonds. Similarly negative cash flow is generated when shares are repurchased, dividend payments are made, and loans or interest on loans are paid back.
