The cash flow statement is one of the reports a publicly traded company like Atmel needs to disclose. While its important to look at the Atmel 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 Atmel 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. Atmel cash flow analysis is possible because this statement breaks down how balance sheet accounts and income statement items affect cash and cash equivalents. Atmel had cash and cash equivalents of $408.92M at the beginning of the quarter and $210.25M at quarter end for 2015 Q4. ATML decrease in investments stood at a value of $-5.76M for the latest quarter 2015 Q4.
