 #reading-38-working-capital-management Lower inventory on hand need not always indicate better management, for it could lead to stock outages and lose customers. At the same time, a higher inventory days on hand could indicate poor sales and an accumulation of obsolete items.

 #reading-38-working-capital-management Current assets includes cash, account receivables, inventories, prepaid expenses and short-term marketable securities. Inventories are less liquid than any other current assets and accordingly will have an effect on the company's ability to remain solvent in the short term.

Annotation 3736698490124

 #reading-38-working-capital-management Secondary sources of liquidity include negotiating debt contracts, liquidating assets, and filing for bankruptcy protection and reorganization. Primary sources of liquidity include ready cash balances, short-term funds (e.g. trade credit and bank lines of credit), and cash flow management.

Annotation 3736726801676

 #reading-38-working-capital-management Commercial papers are mostly issued by large, creditworthy companies as they can get the lowest cost of financing by issuing such paper. Small companies with poor credit quality usually raise money by selling receivables. Receivables securitization is a higher cost of funds used by companies with poor credit quality. Commercial papers are usually used by non-banking corporates.

Annotation 3736737287436

 #reading-38-working-capital-management If the receivables turnover is significantly higher than the industry average, the number of days it takes the receivables to convert cash should be very low. This is an indication that the company's credit policy may be too strict and that sales are being lost to peers because of this. The average days of receivables are only one component of the cash conversion cycle that is related to the credit terms of the company.

Annotation 3736739122444

 #reading-38-working-capital-management BEY uses the 365-days convention and should be used to evaluate the performance of the security. It allows fixed-income securities whose payments are not annual to be compared with securities with annual yields. MMY uses the 360-dasy convention to annualize the HPY.

Annotation 3736740957452

 #reading-38-working-capital-management Companies with working capital requirements that fluctuate due to seasonal demand are likely to experience short-term shortages of cash and must forecast them to manage their net daily cash positions. They could arrange for a bank credit lines or a capital borrowing program that allows them to raise debt and, once peak season is passed, the company can repay the borrowings using the cash generated from high sales during the peak season.

Annotation 3736742792460

 #reading-38-working-capital-management Discount yield is based on the discount calculated using the face value in the denominator. Money market yield and bond equivalent yield are calculated using the holding period yield, which has price (lower value) in the denominator. So the discount yield is lower than all yields when the security is trading at a discount. The money market yield is the holding period yield times 360 / days to maturity and the bond equivalent yield is holding period yield times 365 / days to maturity. So BEY will be higher than the MMY.

Annotation 3736744627468

 #reading-38-working-capital-management Cash conversion cycle = operating cycle – average days payables outstanding. If the cash conversion cycle has decreased, the company's average days of payables must have increased; this could mean that the company is relying more heavily on credit from its suppliers. This could mean that the payables have increased and ultimately leading to lower payables turnover ratio (purchases/average payable).

Annotation 3736746462476

 #reading-38-working-capital-management Publicly-listed securities should be invested for long periods to make a meaningful return. For short-term investment purposes, bank certificates of deposit and time deposits and other money market instruments can be used.

Annotation 3736748297484

 #reading-38-working-capital-management A revolving line of credit is typically for a longer period and involves an agreement to lend funds in the future up to some maximum amount. Accordingly it is one of the strongest and larger forms of credit for companies. Non-banking finance companies are considered as smaller and of weak credit.

Annotation 3736750132492

 #reading-38-working-capital-management Given the seasonal requirement for cash, it's better for the company to invest in short-term securities that mature in August. Highly safe and highly liquid investments may not generate any return for the company and will not be an effective working capital management strategy.

Annotation 3736751967500

 #reading-38-working-capital-management Committed lines of credit are stronger than uncommitted because of the bank’s formal commitment, which can be verified through an acknowledgment letter as part of the annual financial audit and can be footnoted in the company’s annual report.

Annotation 3736756948236

 #reading-38-working-capital-management Committed lines of credit are in effect for 364 days (one day short of a full year). This effectively makes sure that they are short term liabilities, usually classified as notes payable or the equivalent, on the financial statements.

Annotation 3736779754764

 #reading-37-measures-of-leverage Leverage increases the volatility of a company’s earnings and cash flows and increases the risk of lending to or owning a company. Additionally, the valuation of a company and its equity is affected by the degree of leverage: The greater a company’s leverage, the greater its risk and, hence, the greater the discount rate that should be applied in its valuation. Further, highly leveraged (levered) companies have a greater chance of incurring significant losses during downturns, thus accelerating conditions that lead to financial distress and bankruptcy.

Annotation 3736783162636

 #reading-37-measures-of-leverage A number of bankruptcy codes provide in some form for two categories of bankruptcies. One form provides for a temporary protection from creditors so that a viable business may reorganize. In the United States, the US Bankruptcy Code sets the terms for the form of negotiated reorganization of a company’s capital structure that allows it to remain a going concern in Chapter 11. For businesses that are not viable, the second form of bankruptcy process allows for the orderly satisfaction of the creditors’ claims. In the United States, this form of bankruptcy is referred to as liquidation.

Annotation 3736784997644

 #reading-37-measures-of-leverage The difference between a company that reorganizes and emerges from bankruptcy and one that is liquidated is often the difference between operating and financial leverage. Companies with high operating leverage have less flexibility in making changes, and bankruptcy protection does little to help reduce operating costs. Companies with high financial leverage use bankruptcy laws and protection to change their capital structure and, once the restructuring is complete, can emerge as ongoing concerns.

Annotation 3736786832652

 #reading-38-working-capital-management The goal of effective working capital management is to ensure that a company has adequate ready access to the funds necessary for day-to-day operating expenses, while at the same time making sure that the company’s assets are invested in the most productive way. But Insufficient access to cash could ultimately lead to severe restructuring of a company by selling off assets, reorganization via bankruptcy proceedings, or final liquidation of the company. On the other hand, excessive investment in cash and liquid assets may not be the best use of company resources.

Annotation 3736788667660

 #reading-38-working-capital-management Use of secondary sources may signal a company’s deteriorating financial health and provide liquidity at a high price—the cost of giving up a company asset to produce emergency cash. The last source, reorganization through bankruptcy, may also be considered a liquidity tool because a company under bankruptcy protection that generates operating cash will be liquid and generally able to continue business operations until a restructuring has been devised and approved.

Annotation 3736790502668

 #reading-38-working-capital-management Cash flow transactions—that is, cash receipts and disbursements—have significant effects on a company’s liquidity position. We refer to these effects as drags and pulls on liquidity. A drag on liquidity is when receipts lag, creating pressure from the decreased available funds; a pull on liquidity is when disbursements are paid too quickly or trade credit availability is limited, requiring companies to expend funds before they receive funds from sales that could cover the liability.

Annotation 3736792337676

 #reading-38-working-capital-management Whether a given current or quick ratio is good or bad, however, depends on a number of factors, including the trend in these ratios, the comparability of these ratios with competitors, and the available opportunities in more-profitable, long-lived, capital investments.

Annotation 3736794172684

 #reading-38-working-capital-management Given the various forms of short-term borrowing, it is essential that a borrower have a planned strategy before getting stuck in an uneconomical situation. Many borrowing companies spend too little time establishing a sound strategy for their short-term borrowing beyond making sure that they are able to borrow at all, from any source.

Annotation 3740020116748

 #reading-38-working-capital-management #ss-11 A company with low operating leverage will have a low percentage of its total costs in fixed costs. A company with low financial leverage will have a low percentage of its debt as part of capital structure. Debt is considered as fixed financing costs since debt payments are not related to business income; hence a high-debt company is seen as having a high financial risk.

Annotation 3740021951756

 #reading-38-working-capital-management #ss-11 A company borrows $100,000 from a bank for 30 days and pays back$101,000 at the end of the tenure. The bond equivalent yield of this borrowing is: Bond equivalent yield = holding period yield (365 / days) Holding period yield = (end / beginning) – 1 = (101,000 / 100,00) – 1 = 1% BEY = HPY × (365 / days) BEY = 1.00% × (365 / 30) = 12.17%

 #reading-37-measures-of-leverage #ss-11 Business risk is the uncertainty regarding the operating income of a company. This uncertainty is caused by fixed operating costs of the business. So EBIT indicates operating income and is closely monitored for operating risk analysis. Financial risk refers to the uncertainty caused by the fixed cost associated with borrowed money.

Annotation 3740027456780

 #reading-38-working-capital-management #ss-11 We have to convert the yields of U.S. treasury and CD into bond equivalent yields. The other is in BEY. Security 1 = discount on U.S. treasury bill = discount yield * (60 / 360) = 0.383% discount = 100*0.383% = 0.383 market price = 100-0.383 = 99.62 HPY = (100 / 99.62)-1 = 0.381% BEY = (0.381) * (365 / 60) = 2.32% BEY of Security 2 = (0.65%) × (365 / 30) = 7.91% BEY of Security 3 = 3.65% So Security 2 (Bank CD) has the best BEY.
