The National General 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 National General 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 National General 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. National General stock analysis shows positive net income cash flow of $93.86M till 2017 Q3. This statement is important because profits alone cannot pay employees, or bills. Cash is required. National General saw a outflow of $-134.77M from investing activities till 2017 Q3.
