The Sony Corp 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 Sony Corp 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 Sony Corp 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. Sony Corp had cash and cash equivalents of $9.15B at beginning of the year and $8.93B at year end for 2017. Sony Corp cash flow analysis tells whether or not the company has enough cash for its day to day activities, and for investing for future growth. Sony Corp has a negative cash and cash equivalents change of $-218.27M.
