The financial analysis of VITC requires an investor to check the cash flows for Vitacost. While its important to look at the Vitacost 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 Vitacost 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. Vitacost cash flow analysis is possible because this statement breaks down how balance sheet accounts and income statement items affect cash and cash equivalents. Vitacost had cash and cash equivalents of $32.15M at the beginning of the year and $24.79M at year end for 2013. Vitacost saw a outflow of $-3.65M from investing activities for 2013.
