    • Working Capital is a measure of firm’s short-term financial state and efficiency.
    • 11. Business cash needed for day to day operations.
    • 12. It indicates the firm’s ability to pay its debts, or short-term liabilities
    • 13. Also known as “net working capital” and “working capital ratio”

    • Working Capital = Current Assets – Current Liabilities
    • 14. Working Capital is often expressed as a ratio
    • 15. Working Capital Ratio = Current Assets : Current Liabilities
  • Currents Assets
    Current Liabilities
  • Working Capital Ratio
    Invalid Solutions Inc. has total current assets of 100,000 and has total current liabilities of 50,000. Calculate the working capital ratio.
    Working Capital Ratio = Current Assets : Current Liabilities
    Working Capital Ratio = 100,000 : 50,000
    = 2 : 1
  • 25. Understanding Ratios…
    • Firm A -> Current Assets: $50,000 Current Liabilities: $25,000
    Working Capital Ratio = 2 : 1
    Adequate / Safe Working Capital Ratio for most businesses.
    • Firm B -> Current Assets: $50,000 Current Liabilities: $50,000
    Working Capital Ratio = 1 : 1
    Acceptable but generally low for most businesses. Often seen in business with high stock turnovers and few account receivables.
    • Firm C -> Current Assets: $20,000 Current Liabilities: $25,000
    Working Capital Ratio = 0.8 : 1
    This ratio is too low and unsafe.
  • 26. Why is Working Capital important?
    • Every business needs adequate liquid resources in order to maintain day-to-day cash flow.
    • 27. More working capital means firm will be more successful since they can expand and improve their operations.

  • Dividends
  • 29. What are dividends?
    Dividends are a distribution of a portion of an organization’s earnings which is decided by the board of directors to a class of its shareholders.
    Dividends can be quoted in terms of the dollar amount each share receives, also known as dividend per share or a percent of the current market price, also referred to as the dividend yield.
    Dividends can be provided in the form of cash, stock or property. Many organizations offer dividends to their stockholders while high-growth companies are hesitant to offer dividends due to their profits being reinvested to help sustain higher than average growth.
  • 30. Forms of Payment
    Cash dividends are most common and are mostly paid in the form of a cheque. In the form of investment income, it is the most common method of sharing profit in an organization with the shareholders. For each share owned, a declared amount of money is distributed. Therefore, if an individual owns 100 shares and the cash dividend is $0.50 per share, a cheque will be issued for $50.
    . Stock or scrip dividends are paid in the form of additional stocks of the shareholders; usually issued in proportion of the shares owned. For example, for every 100 shares owned, 5% stock dividends will yield 5 extra shares.
    Property dividends are paid out in the form of assets from the corporation. In most cases they are rare and most frequently are securities, however, they can take other forms such as products and services.
  • 31. The Importance of Dividends
    Dividends are important to a company because it is one of the simplest ways to communicate their financial strength and stability.
    While reducing market uncertainty, they are the evidence of both the profitability and financial health of the company. Dividends cannot be manipulated, disguised, restated, or written off.
  • 32. Dividend Discount Model
    Value of Stock = dividend per share/discount rate – dividend growth rate
    The dividend discount model is a procedure for calculating the value of price of a stock by using predicted dividends and discounting them back to the present value.
    If the value after the calculation is higher than what the shares are trading at, then the stock is undervalued.
