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.

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

Unum Group's stock based compensation for the three months ended in Sep. 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).

Unum Group's cash flow from others for the three months ended in Sep. 2016 was $57 Mil.
