Working Capital Reduction – Global Supply Chain Group
"Everything should be made as simple as possible…but not simpler. "
Albert Einstein (1879 – 1955)
Working capital is a portion of a business’s investment for day to day supply chain operations. Basically, it is the money involved in doing business. It comprises company’s inventory, account receivables and cash on hand.
Working capital is usually funded by shareholder equity or through debt borrowing. It is a common measure of a company’s liquidity, efficiency, and overall condition. If this is not managed appropriately, it can signify substantial costs to a business by tying up much needed cash or by incurring financial costs. This excessive investment denotes a nonstop drain on a company’s cash flow, and can substantially limit top or bottom-line supply chain performance.
