(b) Though there is an inflow of cash of RM1.4 million, it is still losing cash which means its going concern status may be in doubt. Generally, entities will have more cash flow from operations than their net profit. In Taglines case it is the reverse. Also its profit is mainly attributable to the sale of the factory, which is a one off transaction. There is an increase in the insurance claim and the release from government grant.

The high tax payment could be an indication that it was very profitable previously and is facing losses suddenly. Taglines inventories and receivables have increased which reflects poor financial management of these assets. The positive points are that Taglines investment in non-current assets has increased. The sale and lease back of the factory has released cash which was used to repay the expensive loan and get a cheaper and smaller loan. 4 Tiny Bubbles Statement of Cash Flows For the year ended 31 December x5 RMm Cash from operating activities: Cash generated from operations Interest paid Income taxes paid Net cash flow from operating activities Cash flows from investing activities: Purchase of plant Purchase of land and building Proceeds from the disposal of plant Interest income (24-10+6) Net cash inflow from investing activities (120) (220) 30 20 (290) RMm (336) (32) (162) (530)
