The Lazard cash flow statement helps investors understand how well the company is managing its cash flows. While its important to look at the Lazard 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 Lazard 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. Lazard cash flow analysis is possible because this statement breaks down how balance sheet accounts and income statement items affect cash and cash equivalents. Lazard had cash and cash equivalents of $2.45B at the beginning of the quarter and $1.88B at quarter end for 2018 Q2. LAZ decrease in investments stood at a value of $-30.72M for the latest quarter 2018 Q2.
