The difference might relate to depreciation, loss on sale of fixed assets, or change in working capital.
The net cash flow from operating activities is calculated after adding and deducting certain items and adjustments to net income to get operating cash flow.
First of all, the gains or losses from sale of fixed assets are adjusted, losses are added back and gains are deducted, to get income from operations.
All the non cash transactions that is unrealized gains or losses are eliminated.
Depreciation being non cash is added back.
All the changes in working capital is adjusted.
Increase in value of current assets are deducted, decrease in value of current assets are added, increase in current liability is added and decrease in current liabilities is deducted.
Thus, after all these adjustments the cash flow from operating activities is calculated.
In the given instance also, the difference might relate to depreciation, loss on sale of fixed assets, or change in working capital.
