The cash flow statement is one of the reports a publicly traded company like FARO Technologies needs to disclose. While its important to look at the FARO Technologies 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 FARO Technologies 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. FARO Technologies had cash and cash equivalents of $107.35M at beginning of the quarter and $129.84M at quarter end of 2017 Q3. FARO Technologies cash flow analysis tells whether or not the company has enough cash for its day to day activities, and for investing for future growth. FARO Technologies had an outflow of $-0.76M from operating activities, $-0.14M spend due to financing activities, and $19.07M inflow due to investing activities till 2017 Q3.
