The First Foundation cash flow statement helps investors understand how well the company is managing its cash flows. While its important to look at the First Foundation 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 First Foundation 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. First Foundation cash flow analysis is possible because this statement breaks down how balance sheet accounts and income statement items affect cash and cash equivalents.
