The Softbank cash flow statement is one of the three reports that the company generates every quarter. While its important to look at the Softbank 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 Softbank 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. Softbank cash flow analysis is possible because this statement breaks down how balance sheet accounts and income statement items affect cash and cash equivalents. Softbank had cash and cash equivalents of $23.9B at the beginning of the year and $20.3B at year end for 2017. SFTBY decrease in investments stood at a value of $-39.19B for the latest year 2017.
