“Working capital is an excellent indicator of a company’s operational effectiveness. Optimizing working capital is about improving end-to-end operational processes and eliminating sub-optimization by focusing on cross-functional teams, targets and KPIs. And, it is about challenging myths and habits with fact-based insights and best practices.” – Erik Påhlson, Managing Director at Capacent_x

What is the basis for a working capital analysis?

To gain understanding of your company’s working capital performance and to benchmark it towards your customers performance, we will analyze your company’s financials based on publicly available data, including: 

  • Net Operating Working Capital breakdown and development
  • Turnover days of different working capital components (Accounts Payable, Inventory, Accounts Receivable)
  • Balance sheet development
  • Balance sheet structure

Then, we compare your figures with your main competitors', including:

  • NOWC / Sales %
  • EBITDA %
  • ROCE %

NOWC = Net Operating Working Capital
EBITDA = Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization
ROCE = Return on capital employed
DPO = Days of Payables outstanding
DIS = Days in Stock
DSO = Days of Sales outstanding
