  • Cash and short-term investments were $4.8 billion, $621 million lower than last year as growth in net income and proceeds from the issuance of debt in the second quarter of fiscal 2016 were more than offset by share repurchases, investments in working capital and infrastructure, higher dividends, and a reduction in collateral received from counterparties to foreign currency hedging instruments.
