The FormFactor cash flow statement is one of the important reports considered by investors doing a fundamental analysis of the company. While its important to look at the FormFactor 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 FormFactor 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. FormFactor cash flow analysis is possible because this statement breaks down how balance sheet accounts and income statement items affect cash and cash equivalents. FormFactor had cash and cash equivalents of $101.4M at the beginning of the year and $91.18M at year end for 2017. FORM decrease in investments stood at a value of $-59.67M for the latest year 2017.
