The financial analysis of GPI requires an investor to check the cash flows for Group 1 Automotive. While its important to look at the Group 1 Automotive 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 Group 1 Automotive 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. Group 1 Automotive stock analysis shows positive net income cash flow of $92.28M till 2018 Q2. This statement is important because profits alone cannot pay employees, or bills. Cash is required. Group 1 Automotive had an inflow of $263.11M from operating activities, $-158.47M spend due to financing activities, and $-87.83M outflow due to investing activities till 2018 Q2.
