The cash flow statement is one of the reports a publicly traded company like WPP Plc needs to disclose. While its important to look at the WPP Plc 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 WPP Plc 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. Items like capital purchases, bank loan payments etc. which have a direct impact on the cash position of a company come out through the statemement of cash flows and help an investor who undertakes the WPP Plc stock analysis. WPP Plc generated $2.4B cash from operating activities in 2016. WPP Plc saw a inflow of $138.2M from investing activities for 2016.
