The Forum Energy cash flow statement helps investors understand how well the company is managing its cash flows. While its important to look at the Forum Energy 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 Forum Energy 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. Forum Energy saw a cash impact of $-3.25M from the buyback of FET shares. The cash flow statement helps in the Forum Energy stock analysis by providing more information for evaluating changes in assets, liabilities and equities. Forum Energy saw a outflow of $-187.96M from investing activities for 2017.
