The American Science 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 American Science 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 American Science 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. American Science cash flow analysis is possible because this statement breaks down how balance sheet accounts and income statement items affect cash and cash equivalents. American Science had cash and cash equivalents of $34.91M at the beginning of the quarter and $74.1M at quarter end for 2017 Q1. ASEI decrease in investments stood at a value of $-0.26M for the latest quarter 2017 Q1.
