Need help with Cash Flows...


K

Kareem

I need to find a company with noncash transactions and indicate the name,
type of transaction and where it is reported in the 10-k? filing.

Also I need to find out whether stock dividends, stock splits, and
appropriations of retinaed earnings are relevant to the evaluation of the
cash flow statement. Where can these transactions be found under GAAP?

Any help appreciated.

This looks like you are seeking help with your Accounting homework.
Depreciation may have something to do with your first paragraph. In your
second paragraph, do any of these items cause cash to change hands?

Hi. It's for an accounting presentation. The only parts left are for me to
find a company with noncash transactions and where it's reported in their
10k filing. And, whether retained earnings, stock splits or dividends are of
interest (in my opinion) to readers of the statement of cash flows. I'm
having problems.

The whole presentation is on the statement of cash flows and whether or not
it "gives the whole picture." i've already discussed the need for cash-based
numbers to supplement accrual numbers, the three activities of the cash flow
statement, ways in which a corporation have "off cash flow statement" items,
such as if they have a debt due and issue peferred stock instead, and i
listed two companies (worldcom and tyco) that mislead readers by fudging
their cash flow statements.

all i need now is to find a company with noncash transactions (easy) and
where they are reported in a 10K statement? That's what I don't understand.
Also, I know that stock splits, dividends and retained earnings are not on
the cash flow statement. But the question is, should those three things be
important that readers of the statement should know about? why or why not?

i'm running out of time here. i also have an advanced accounting test to
finish, on the parent company concept, which is difficult as well, so that's
why i'm asking for help on my presentation.

thank you

Try going to http://www.sec.gov/edgar.shtml They have 10k's for all the
publicly traded companies. Pick any Fortune 500 company and look at the
statement of cash flows as I am sure you will find non-cash items on their
statement of cash flows.

Hope this helps,

Stephen Lewis, CPA

That was easy. Last week I was desperate and didn't think things through.
The noncash transactions are at the bottom of the statement of cash flows.
The notes are a big part of this section. I didn't even realize a 10-K was
the annual report and a Q was quarterly. We talked about it tonight in
Advanced Accounting. We just had a test on the parent company concept,
consolidations when there is a noncontrolling interest present, and
intercompany inventory transfers.
