The translation in both cases (between cash flow and accounting net profit, and from revenues down to net profit) involves a (usually) significant number of accounting conventions and issues. There is no single formula or procedure, as these accounting issues will be case-specific. Just as some examples, you'll need to understand the particular accounting methodologies used in the target's financial statements regarding the company's depreciation policies, inventory turnover, receivables collection experience, trade payables experience, expense accruals, and asset capitalization policies, just to name a few. All of these issues play a role in separating net profit from cash flow, and these issues will differ from company to company.

If you're not already very familiar with accounting, you'll want an accountant helping you out when it comes to performing a careful analysis of a target company.
