The Chefs' Warehouse cash flow statement is one of the three reports that the company generates every quarter. While its important to look at the Chefs' Warehouse 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 Chefs' Warehouse 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. Chefs' Warehouse cash flow analysis is possible because this statement breaks down how balance sheet accounts and income statement items affect cash and cash equivalents. Chefs' Warehouse had cash and cash equivalents of $2.45M at the beginning of the year and $32.86M at year end for 2016. Chefs' Warehouse saw a outflow of $-35.81M from investing activities for 2016.
