The Franklin Resources 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 Franklin Resources 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 Franklin Resources 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. Franklin Resources had cash and cash equivalents of $8.48B at beginning of the year and $8.75B at year end for 2017. Franklin Resources cash flow analysis tells whether or not the company has enough cash for its day to day activities, and for investing for future growth. Franklin Resources had an inflow of $1.14B from operating activities, $-956M spend due to financing activities, and $52M inflow due to investing activities for 2017.
