Course Objectives

The cash flow statement is a report of results on a cash basis. It is arguably the most important statement, although it is not prepared as frequently as the balance sheet or income statement. The cash flow statement, as the primary cash reporting tool, is a good starting point for cash flow analysis during the lending process. Its primary purpose is to measure changes in cash and cash equivalents from one balance sheet date to the next. This course discusses how credit analysts can use a prospective borrower’s cash flow statement to assess loan risk and assist with the lending decision-making process. In this informative course, we will cover:

  • The GAAP Cash Flow Statement

  • Calculating and Analyzing Cash Flows

  • Additional Cash Flow Statement Analysis
