|German term or phrase: Zukunftsinvestitionen|
|"Die Nettoliquidität im Industriegeschäft sank im vergangenen Jahr. Der Liquiditätsabfluss wurde zu einem großen Teil sowohl durch die Auszahlung der Dividende und den Aktienrückkauf bedingt, allerdings fiel auch der Free Cash Flow (FCF) negativ aus. Sowohl das schwache Ergebnis in H2 2008 als auch ein Anstieg des Working Capitals und anhaltend hohe Zukunftsinvestitionen haben zu dem negativen FCF beigetragen."|
also found this website: http://www.unternehmensfoerderung.sachsen.de/de/Foerderung/S... which seems to suggest these are investments in preparing the company (investor) for the future, but what might they be called in English?
|future oriented / strategic capital expenditures|
"Investment" usually refers to the acquisition of financial assets. In business, especially for an industrial company, it's capital expenditure, capex.
This is what is in the definition of FCF.
Both investments and capital expenditure are for creating benefits in the future. The author simply wants to distract from the fact that the situation at the moment is bad.
