Explanation

Cash flow from operations contains six items:

1. Net Income From Continuing Operations:
Net Income From Continuing Operations indicates the net income that a firm brings in from ongoing business activities. These activities are expected to continue into the next reporting period. It excludes extraordinary items, income from the cumulative effects of accounting changes, non-recurring items, income from tax loss carry forward, and preferred dividends.

Marvell Technology Group Ltd's net income from continuing operations for the three months ended in Apr. 2015 was $14 Mil.

2. Depreciation, Depletion and Amortization:
Depreciation is a present expense that accounts for the past cost of an asset that is now providing benefits.
Depletion and amortization are synonyms for depreciation.
Generally:
• The term “depreciation” is used when discussing man made tangible assets
• The term “depletion” is used when discussing natural tangible assets
• The term “amortization” is used when discussing intangible assets

Marvell Technology Group Ltd's depreciation, depletion and amortization for the three months ended in Apr. 2015 was $30 Mil.

3. Change In Working Capital:
Working Capital is a measure of a company's short term liquidity or its ability to cover short term liabilities. It is defined as the difference between a company's current assets and current liabilities. Changes in Working Capital is reported in the cash flow statement since it is one of the major ways in which net income can differ from operating cash flow.

Marvell Technology Group Ltd's change in working capital for the three months ended in Apr. 2015 was $-19 Mil. It means Marvell Technology Group Ltd's working capital declined by $19 Mil from Jan. 2015 to Apr. 2015 .

It is the cash flow generated from deferred tax.

5. Cash Flow from Discontinued Operations:
Cash received by a company that comes from the sale of part of business.

6. Stock Based Compensation:
It is a way corporations use stock options to reward employees. It provides executives and employees the opportunity to share in the growth of the company and, if structured properly, can align their interests with the interests of the company's shareholders and investors, without burning the company's cash on hand.

Marvell Technology Group Ltd's stock based compensation for the three months ended in Apr. 2015 was $33 Mil.

7. Cash Flow from Others:
These are cash differences caused by the change of inventory, accounts payable, accounts receivable etc. For instance, if a company pays its suppliers slower, its cash position will build up faster. If a company receives payments from its customers slower, its account receivables will rise, and its cash position will grow more slowly (or even shrink).

Marvell Technology Group Ltd's cash flow from others for the three months ended in Apr. 2015 was $1 Mil.
