Abstract: A company cannot survive without cash for any length of time. Thanks to number-crunching personal computers and software, forecasting cash flow is greatly simplified. These new management tools give chief executive officers the positive direct control they need over the financial rudders of their businesses. Cash flow is a juxtaposition of payables, receivables, debt service, capital expenditures, sales and repurchases of stock, and other factors. Using an integrated spreadsheet, a chief executive officer (CEO) can more accurately predict where the company is heading.
