The Steel Dynamics 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 Steel Dynamics 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 Steel Dynamics 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. Steel Dynamics cash flow analysis is possible because this statement breaks down how balance sheet accounts and income statement items affect cash and cash equivalents. Steel Dynamics had cash and cash equivalents of $841.48M at the beginning of the year and $1.03B at year end for 2017. Steel Dynamics saw a outflow of $-139.1M from investing activities for 2017.
