The financial analysis of ZEN requires an investor to check the cash flows for Zendesk. While its important to look at the Zendesk 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 Zendesk 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. Zendesk had cash and cash equivalents of $93.67M at beginning of the year and $109.37M at year end for 2017. Zendesk cash flow analysis tells whether or not the company has enough cash for its day to day activities, and for investing for future growth.
