The cash flow statement is one of the reports a publicly traded company like Checkpoint Systems needs to disclose. While its important to look at the Checkpoint Systems 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 Checkpoint Systems 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. Checkpoint Systems stock analysis shows negative net income cash flow of $-32.52M till 2016 Q1. This statement is important because profits alone cannot pay employees, or bills. Cash is required. Checkpoint Systems had an outflow of $-13.7M from operating activities, $- spend due to financing activities, and $-3.02M outflow due to investing activities till 2016 Q1.
