The Brooks Automation 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 Brooks Automation 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 Brooks Automation 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. This statement can tell if a company is running out of money while still being profitable and is useful in Brooks Automation stock analysis. Brooks Automation had a positive net income cash flow of $62.61M for the latest 2017. This report is very useful in measuring the short term viability of a company. Brooks Automation had an inflow of $96.22M from operating activities, $-25.92M spend due to financing activities, and $-54.18M outflow due to investing activities for 2017.
