Rudger how does expensed interest reduce operating cash flow? It has to be paid either rway, therefore in both cases the Company will have to pay the interest right?
UcheSam That question caught me off-guard. One just need to be extra careful reading the question.
UcheSam @Rudger expensed interest is treated as operating not investing cash flow. It would have been investing had it been it was capitalized but that's not the case. Besides, its an outflow thereby reducing CFO.
