Working Capital Management : Strategies And Techniques
Author: Bhattacharya Hrishikes
Working capital is commonly understood as the fund needed to meet the day-to-day expenses of an enterprise. For a finance manager it is the fund locked up in current assets and, therefore, he looks for liquidity support in net working capital (NWC), which is equivalent to the excess of current assets over current liabilities. A banker also looks at the size of NWC as the long-term stake of the business in funding the current assets. But for a production manager, liquidity is synonymous to uninterrupted supply of material inputs to the production lines. Similarly for a marketing manager, if there is no production, his marketing outlets dry up despite demand in the market. While the finance manager discourages overstocking of inventory, the production manager and the marketing manager dread of being out of stock. In this conflict the goal of the organization often takes a back seat. This book aims at resolving these conflicts by adopting a techno-financial approach to working capital management. The second edition of the book is updated extensively by incorporating the current researches on the subject. During the recent years, the theories of trade credit and Logistics and Supply Management have enlarged the domain of working capital management. With this in view, two new chapters have been added, namely (1) Theories of Trade Credit, and (2) Logistics, Supply Chain and Channel Financing. The later chapter discusses both the operational and financial aspects of logistics and supply chain management. Throughout the book, every concept is presented with worked-out examples and case studies for easy comprehension of the subject. The book is primarily addressed to postgraduate students majoring in Finance and to those pursuing professional courses in Accounts (CA) and Cost Accounting (ICWA). The book will also be very useful to practising finance managers as well as to purchase/materials managers.
