The Zep 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 Zep 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 Zep 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 Zep stock analysis. Zep generated $22.27M cash from operating activities in 2014. Zep had an inflow of $22.27M from operating activities, $-7.98M spend due to financing activities, and $-2.39M outflow due to investing activities for 2014.
