The Pinnacle Foods cash flow statement helps investors understand how well the company is managing its cash flows. While its important to look at the Pinnacle Foods 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 Pinnacle Foods 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. Pinnacle Foods cash flow analysis is possible because this statement breaks down how balance sheet accounts and income statement items affect cash and cash equivalents. Pinnacle Foods had cash and cash equivalents of $180.54M at the beginning of the year and $353.07M at year end for 2016. Pinnacle Foods saw a outflow of $-1.09B from investing activities for 2016.
