Stockopedia explains Net Income...

Often referred to as the bottom line, the net income figure shows what a company has earned (or lost) over a given period of time for its equity shareholders. Investors look at net income closely because it is the source of compensation to shareholders of the company.
Net income is not a measure of how much cash a company earned because the income statement includes a lot of non-cash expenses such as depreciation and amortization.
