Cash Flow I 2016

Past Event

All business bankers must be able to assess the cash flow generation abilities of their borrowers, because it’s ultimately their cash flow that repays their debt.

In this one-day seminar, participants will have the opportunity to understand, both intuitively and practically, the construction of UCA® format cash flow statements.  Participants will then discuss basic analytical techniques that can be applied to these statements in order to assess creditworthiness.  The focus of this seminar is on understanding the meaning of, and logic behind, cash flow, rather than on memorizing various mechanical rules of cash flow statement construction.

In this seminar, we will cover:

  • The meaning and importance of cash flow
  • Traditional cash flow calculations, limitations, and adjustments
  • The logic and mechanics of cash flow
  • Major cash flow lessons
  • Key cash flow statement questions that should always be asked for any cash flow statement
  • A review of the logic behind the UCA® cash flow statement format
  • Analysis options that are generally available using computerized software
  • A discussion of UCA® cash flow terms and their meanings

PARTICIPANTS: All business lenders, credit analysts, loan reviewers, lending managers and bank presidents.
