The financial analysis of FTNT requires an investor to check the cash flows for Fortinet. While its important to look at the Fortinet 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 Fortinet 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. Fortinet cash flow analysis is possible because this statement breaks down how balance sheet accounts and income statement items affect cash and cash equivalents. Fortinet had cash and cash equivalents of $709M at the beginning of the year and $811M at year end for 2017. Fortinet has a positive cash and cash equivalents change of $102M.
