The cash flow statement is one of the reports a publicly traded company like Exelis needs to disclose. While its important to look at the Exelis 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 Exelis 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. Exelis purchased $133M worth of XLS shares. The cash flow statement helps in the Exelis stock analysis by providing more information for evaluating changes in assets, liabilities and equities. Exelis saw a inflow of $17M from investing activities for 2014. View details of Exelis cash flows for latest & last ten financial years.

  • Exelis saw a decrease in Net Change in Cash and Cash Equivalents from $177M in 2013 to $51M in 2014. Apart from the Exelis stock price, this is one of the things an investor looks for, as it shows the net change in cash on hand for a company, compared to previous period.
  • The cash generated from the core business or operations was positive at $160M for Exelis in the latest year. For an internet company, this would include all those activities which are involved in eventually selling advertisement space on its website or any online service.
  • Growth companies (typically most tech companies) spend heavily  on investing activities and this figure was negative at $-66M for XLS 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 $-72M for Exelis. 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.
