The BPOST SA cash flow statement is one of the three reports that the company generates every quarter. While its important to look at the BPOST SA 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 BPOST SA 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. Items like capital purchases, bank loan payments etc. which have a direct impact on the cash position of a company come out through the statemement of cash flows and help an investor who undertakes the BPOST SA stock analysis. BPOST SA generated $300.77M cash from operating activities in 2017. BPOST SA saw a outflow of $-849.87M from investing activities for 2017.
