The financial analysis of AIZ requires an investor to check the cash flows for Assurant. While its important to look at the Assurant 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 Assurant 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. Assurant cash flow analysis is possible because this statement breaks down how balance sheet accounts and income statement items affect cash and cash equivalents. Assurant had cash and cash equivalents of $1.03B at the beginning of the quarter and $996.8M at quarter end for 2017 Q4. Assurant saw a outflow of $-541.2M from investing activities till 2017 Q4.
