The Neustar cash flow statement helps investors understand how well the company is managing its cash flows. While its important to look at the Neustar 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 Neustar 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. Neustar saw a cash impact of $-10.66M from the buyback of NSR shares. The cash flow statement helps in the Neustar stock analysis by providing more information for evaluating changes in assets, liabilities and equities. Neustar had an inflow of $335.46M from operating activities, $-321.89M spend due to financing activities, and $-57.53M outflow due to investing activities for 2016.
