The Saga Communications cash flow statement helps investors understand how well the company is managing its cash flows. While its important to look at the Saga Communications 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 Saga Communications 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. Saga Communications cash flow analysis is possible because this statement breaks down how balance sheet accounts and income statement items affect cash and cash equivalents. Saga Communications had cash and cash equivalents of $26.69M at the beginning of the year and $53.03M at year end for 2017. SGA increase in investments stood at a value of $37.5M for the latest year 2017.
