The Adobe Systems 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 Adobe Systems 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 Adobe Systems 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. Adobe Systems cash flow analysis is possible because this statement breaks down how balance sheet accounts and income statement items affect cash and cash equivalents.  Adobe Systems had cash and cash equivalents of $876.56M at the beginning of the year and $1.01B at year end for 2016.   Adobe Systems had an inflow of $730.22M from operating activities, $890.02M spend due to financing activities, and $528.32M gain due to investing activities for 2016.
