The Rockwell Automation cash flow statement is one of the three reports that the company generates every quarter. While its important to look at the Rockwell Automation 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 Rockwell Automation 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. Rockwell Automation cash flow analysis is possible because this statement breaks down how balance sheet accounts and income statement items affect cash and cash equivalents. Rockwell Automation had cash and cash equivalents of $1.53B at the beginning of the year and $1.41B at year end for 2017. The cash from operating activities for Rockwell Automation is $ 2017, which saw an increase from previous year.
