Cashflow from investing activities
Cash flow from investing activities shows to what extent a company has used or gained cash either by acquiring or by selling tangible assets, equity participations, companies or intangible assets.
If a company shows a negative cash flow from investing activities, this usually means that the company has invested in tangible or intangible assets during the reporting period. For the fiscal year 2006 Deutsche Post World Net reported a cash flow from investing activities of EUR -2.7 billion.
Cash flow from investments in long-term tangible assets is also called capex (capital expenditure).
