Management Discussion
  • The major components of cash provided by operations are earnings from operations adjusted for non-cash income and expense items and changes in working capital. Cash generated from operating activities increased $199.7 million to $680.9 million in fiscal 2019, compared with $481.2 million in fiscal 2018. Earnings from continuing operations, adjusted for non-cash income and expense and other items, increased $161.5 million primarily due to favorable price/mix and sales volumes, and a decrease in cash taxes. Changes in operating assets and liabilities provided $38.2 million more cash in fiscal 2019, compared with fiscal 2018. The increase in cash provided by changes in operating assets and liabilities was driven primarily by the timing of payments for accounts payable, timing of receipt of cash for accounts receivable, a smaller year-over-year increase in prepaid expenses and current assets, and inventories. These changes were offset partially by the timing of payments for income taxes and accrued expenses.
