22-2 SYNOPSISNeed for and History of the Statement of Cash Flows1. Users need information about the operating, investing, and financing activities of companies. Such information about a particular company relates directly or indirectly to the company's cash flows. The FASB stated that a company's financial reports should include information about cash flows and other factors affecting its liquidity or solvency. 2.
