It is a way corporations use stock options to reward employees.

Danaher Corp's stock based compensation for the three months ended in Jun. 2015 was $29 Mil.

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).
