While its important to look at the Kobe Steel 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 Kobe Steel 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.
