The Vodafone 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 Vodafone 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 Vodafone 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. Vodafone saw a cash impact of $-2.32B from the buyback of VOD shares.
