The Facebook cash flow statement is one of the three reports that the company generates every quarter. While its important to look at the Facebook 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 Facebook 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. Facebook had cash and cash equivalents of $4.91B at beginning of year and $8.9B at year end for 2016. Facebook cash flow analysis tells whether or not the company has enough cash for its day to day activities, and for investing for future growth. FB decrease in investments stood at a negative value of $-11.74B for the latest 2016. View details of Facebook cash flows for latest & last ten financial years.
