Question 15 of 25

What is free cash flow and what does it tell about a company's finances?

How to Answer

Free Cash Flow (FCF) is the cash a company generates from operations less expenditures for capital expenditures and other assets. FCF is a measure of profitability, and it tells investors how much cash is available for a company to repay creditors or pay dividends. At many organizations, a Finance Manager may be required to forecast and report on free cash flow. Even if not, it's still important for the candidate to know what free cash flow is.
