The cash flow statement is one of the reports a publicly traded company like Facebook needs to disclose. 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. This statement can tell if a company is running out of money while still being profitable and is useful in Facebook stock analysis. Facebook had a positive net income cash flow of $10.22B for the latest year. This report is very useful in measuring the short term viability of a company. Facebook has a positive cash and cash equivalents change of $4B. View details of Facebook cash flows for latest & last ten financial years.
