CASH FLOW is earnings before depreciation and amortization. Cash flow is calculated as the difference between cash inflows and outflows. Cash flow can be derived from Operating Profit by adjusting for items which do not affect payments (e.g. depreciation) and items (e.g. changes in working capital) which affect payments but are not recorded in Operating Profit.
MAINTENANCE is the activity involved in maintaining something in good working order. May include replacement of significant portions of the item(s) being maintained.
BUDGET DEFICIT is usually the difference between government spending and revenue and thus the amount that needs to be borrowed. Definition varies between countries.
