Chapter 5. Working Capital and Cash Flow Analysis

Cash is the most liquid of all assets—so many managers are keenly interested in how much cash is available to a business at any given time. Because the flow of cash into and out of a business is mainly a matter of investing (purchasing assets) and disinvesting (disposing of assets), an analysis of cash flows can be a good measure of how well managers are performing their investing functions.

This chapter describes the process of accounting for and analyzing these cash flows. Although it doesn't replace them, the cash flow statement is a useful adjunct to income statements and balance sheets. Using tools that are available to you in the form of different functions and links, you will learn how to use Excel to convert the information in a balance sheet and income statement to a cash flow statement.
