The CalAmp cash flow statement helps investors understand how well the company is managing its cash flows. While its important to look at the CalAmp 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 CalAmp 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. CalAmp had cash and cash equivalents of $93.7M at beginning of the year and $132.6M at year end for 2018. CalAmp cash flow analysis tells whether or not the company has enough cash for its day to day activities, and for investing for future growth. CalAmp had an inflow of $66.89M from operating activities, $-2.26M spend due to financing activities, and $-26.45M outflow due to investing activities for 2018.
