The cash flow statement is one of the reports a publicly traded company like Seaboard needs to disclose. While its important to look at the Seaboard 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 Seaboard 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. Seaboard had cash and cash equivalents of $50M at beginning of the quarter and $61M at quarter end of 2017 Q3. Seaboard cash flow analysis tells whether or not the company has enough cash for its day to day activities, and for investing for future growth. SEB decrease in investments stood at a value of $-216M for the latest quarter 2017 Q3.
