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

Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd's stock based compensation for the three months ended in Jun. 2016 was $0 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).
