The Western Alliance cash flow statement is one of the three reports that the company generates every quarter. While its important to look at the Western Alliance 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 Western Alliance 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. Western Alliance had cash and cash equivalents of $164.39M at beginning of quarter and $356.08M at quarter end for 2016-Q3. Western Alliance cash flow analysis tells whether or not the company has enough cash for its day to day activities, and for investing for future growth. Western Alliance had an inflow of $99.35M from operating activities, $247.44M inflow due to financing activities, and $686.93M spend due to investing activities for 2016-Q3.
