The TransUnion 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 TransUnion 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 TransUnion 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. TransUnion purchased $761.7M worth of TRU shares. The cash flow statement helps in the TransUnion stock analysis by providing more information for evaluating changes in assets, liabilities and equities. TransUnion saw a outflow of $298.7M from investing activities for 2016. View details of TransUnion cash flows for latest & last ten financial years.

The TransUnion stock price history and TransUnion stock comparison chart inevitably reflect its cash flow situation.

If a firm is able to grow its cash, it is considered to be a positive signal and could lead to a jump in the TransUnion stock price , albeit too much cash on hand can imply the company has no or limited avenues for growth in which to invest this cash.
  • Cash Flow from operating activities: TransUnion reported a positive operating cash flow of $389.9M for 2016 and has seen an increase from the previous year. Operating cash flow or working capital comes from main business activities. Investors look for positive cash flow from recurring operating activities.
  • Growth companies (typically most tech companies) spend heavily  on investing activities and this figure was negative at $-495.8M for TRU stock. Sometimes a company might have a negative overall cash flow which may not be really bad if it is due to investment expenses. Hence it is important to check the cash flow from investment activities.
  • Cash Flow from financing activities: Financing activities include the cash that comes into a company in the form of loans or interest earned or shareholders money, as well as the cash that goes out. TransUnion earned $205.1M from financing activities,in the form of repayment of loans or interest paid, dividend pay-out to shareholders etc.
