Free cash flow represents the cash a company can generate after required investment to maintain or expand its asset base. It is a measurement of a company's financial performance and health. There are two other types of free cash flow: free cash flow for the firm and free cash flow to equity. This article focuses on the more simplified free cash flow also known as levered free cash flow.
Cash is king when it comes to the financial management of a growing company. The lag between the time you have to pay your suppliers and employees and the time you collect from your customers is the problem, and the solution is cash flow management. At its simplest, cash flow management means delaying outlays of cash as long as possible while encouraging anyone who owes you money to pay it as rapidly as possible.
