The Dolby cash flow statement is one of the three reports that the company generates every quarter. While its important to look at the Dolby 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 Dolby 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 Dolby stock analysis. Dolby generated $356.83M cash from operating activities in 2016. Dolby had an inflow of $47.46M from operating activities, $49.75M inflow due to financing activities, and $78.9M spend due to investing activities for 2016.

  • Dolby had a Net Change in Cash and Cash Equivalents of $-15.81M for the latest year 2016. If a firm is able to grow its cash, it is considered to be a positive signal and could lead to a jump in the Dolby stock price , albeit too much cash on hand can imply the company has no or limited avenues for growth in which to invest this cash.
  • Dolby increased its cash from operating activities to $47.46M in 2016. Operating activities include production of goods or creating a product or providing a service, and collecting payment for the same from customers. The cash generated from these activities is refered to as cash flow from operating activities.
  • Growth companies (typically most tech companies) spend heavily  on investing activities and this figure was negative at $-282.49M for DLB stock.

The money accounted for under this head comes from external sources which includes lenders, investors and shareholders.
