The Post Properties cash flow statement is one of the three reports that the company generates every quarter. While its important to look at the Post Properties 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 Post Properties 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. Post Properties saw a cash impact of $-32.88M from the buyback of PPS shares. The cash flow statement helps in the Post Properties stock analysis by providing more information for evaluating changes in assets, liabilities and equities. Post Properties had an inflow of $173.2M from operating activities, $-134.83M spend due to financing activities, and $-150.27M outflow due to investing activities for 2015.
