CapEx (short for Capital Expenditures) is the money invested by a company in acquiring, maintaining, or improving fixed assets such as property, buildings, factories, equipment, and technology.

If you have access to a company’s cash flow statement, then no calculation is necessary and you can simply see the capital expenditures that were made in the Investing Cash Flow section.

If you don’t have access to the cash flow statement, it’s possible to calculate the net capital expenditure if depreciation is broken out on the income statement (which most, but not all companies do).

To calculate capital expenditures, follow these steps:

  1. Locate Depreciation and amortization on the income statement
  2. Locate the current period Property, Plant & Equipment (PP&E) on the balance sheet
  3. Locate the prior period PP&E on the same balance sheet
  4. Use the formula below to arrive at CapEx

 

The CapEx formula is:  CapEx = PP&E (current) PP&E (prior) + Depreciation
