Swedish term or phrase: Den löpande verksamhet
In an annual report I am having a hard time pinning down the term "verksamhet" in this case:

"Kassaflöde från den löpande verksamhet"
"Cash flow from the current activity" or "Cash flow from the current business" Which is best?

cash flow from current operations
Explanation:
Kassaflöde is definitely cash flow.

"Den löpande verksamhet" should be current operations - without the definite article.

This is supported by the following example:


Cash flow from current operations, that is before strategic capital investments and dividends,
amounted to SEK 6,740 M (3,876), equal to SEK 31.45 (18.46) per share. Accordingly, SCA
clearly exceeded the established cash flow targets.

revenue from ordinary activities


Explanation:
If it is an annual report, then should be revenue from ordinary activities (although the terms used differ from country to country).

E.g.

revenue from current business......


Explanation:
Revenue is a better choice of words as a pose to cash flow. Cash flow is correct as a direct translation but revenue is more suited to a bus/financial text.
