The Steel Dynamics cash flow statement helps investors understand how well the company is managing its cash flows. 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 $1.04B at the beginning of the quarter and $726.42M at quarter end for 2018 Q2. Steel Dynamics had an inflow of $503.97M from operating activities, $-221.3M spend due to financing activities, and $-591.33M outflow due to investing activities till 2018 Q2.
