Working Capital Analytics Factsheet

Publish date:

Many companies have the opportunity to increase shareholder value by managing working capital in a more efficient manner, but are often held back by a number of internal challenges.

Still, with working capital optimization increasingly on boards’ radar, as they look for opportunities to enhance shareholder value, CFOs want to address those internal challenges in order to free cash that can be used to fuel growth.
Market studies show that reduction of the cash conversion cycle is a key way of freeing up cash:
  • A typical Global 2000 firm can improve cash flow by $100 million or more just by increasing Days Payable Outstanding (DPO)
  • A $10-billion company can generate more than $30–$40 million/year in bottomline savings by reducing Days Sales Outstanding (DSO)
