Statement of Cash Flow:

The statement of cash flow includes the consolidation of the last two balance sheets and the most recent income statement to calculate the changes in cash balances over two periods.

Answer and Explanation:


The financing activities section of the statement of cash flow reports the changes in the last two balance sheets for non-current liabilities and equity sections. The statement determines how the company finances its operations and returns investments to shareholders.


For the problem below the issuance of 300,000 shares of common stock and related paid-in capital would be included in the financing section of the cash flow statement as a cash inflow. Likewise, the cash dividend would be included in the financing section as a cash use. The stock dividend would only be a note as additional information on the cash flow statement because it did not include a cash transaction; only a stock transaction.
