Due to the quarantine, I'm doing some modeling practice to pass the time. I came across this problem that confused me while I was comparing the Balance Sheet and Statement of Cash Flows information from for Dollar General's (DG) latest 10K:
Why are there material differences in information between the cash flow statement and the balance sheet? For instance, on the B/S the difference in inventories from FY17-FY18 is 488M but 521M on the cash flow statement for the same period.
I am seeing a similar difference with Capital Expenditures on the B/S (Change in PP&E) vs. CapEx on the CFS.
I would really appreciate it if someone with more experience than myself could explain these differences as I haven't been able to find a definitive answer online.
Also, all of my numbers have been pulled from the FY 2019 10K available here: https://investor.dollargeneral.com/websites/dollar...
