The Pearson 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 Pearson 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 Pearson 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. This statement can tell if a company is running out of money while still being profitable and is useful in Pearson stock analysis. Pearson had a positive net income cash flow of $525.83M for the latest 2017. This report is very useful in measuring the short term viability of a company. Pearson had an inflow of $384.06M from operating activities, $-2.27B spend due to financing activities, and $839M inflow due to investing activities for 2017.
