The 2015 comparative income statement and the 2015 comparative balance sheet of Golf America, Inc. have just been distributed at a meeting of the company’s Board of Directors. The members of the board raise a fundamental question: Why is the cash balance so low? This question is especially hard to understand because 2015 showed record profits. As the controller of the company, you must answer the question.

1. Prepare a statement of cash flows for 2015 in the format that best shows the relationship between net income and net operating cash flow. The company sold no plant assets or long- term investments and issued no notes payable during 2015. There were no non-cash investing and financing transactions during the year. Show all amounts in thousands.
2. Considering net income and the company’s cash flows during 2015, was it a good year or a bad year? Give your reasons.
