Techno’s net income was 316,354 for 2009 which was accumulated after subtracting the depreciation and amortization and deferred taxes were deducted. The company’s cash flow for that same year was 24,525 after the net income of 399,904 (before deductions) was deducted from the total of their receivables, inventories and other current assets minus the accounts payables/accrued liabilities which is why the cash flow from operating activities are lower than the net income. Net income is also different from operating cash because it includes more deductions that are not considered income. Besides the net income, cash provided by operating assets and liabilities only has the accounts payable deductions.
In 2009, Techno had more than a 100,000 higher ending cash balance than in 2008 as a result of having higher receivables and inventories. “Some companies pay out a portion of their profits in cash to their shareholders. Dividends received from the company’s investments (such as stock owned in another company) are shown in the operating activities section of the statement of cash flows” (Epstein, 2014, p. 4.4). In comparison to 2008, Techno purchased an extra 6,000 in stock and paid more than twice as much dividends to shareholders.
