  • Projectsformba.blogspot.com EXECUTIVE SUMMARYProjectsformba.blogspot.com
  • Projectsformba.blogspot.comEXECUTIVE SUMMARYIndia in a large and growing economy with rapidly expanding financial service sector.Managing working capital is a matter of balance. A company must have sufficient cash onhand to meet its immediate needs while ensuring that idle cash is invested to theorganization’s best possible advantage. To avoid tipping the scale, it is necessary to have clearand accurate reports on each of the components of working capital and awareness of thepotential impact of outside influences.WORKING CAPITAL = CURRENT ASSETS – CURRENT LIABILITIESIn the analysis for Bharti Teletech Limited, a Bharti Group Company it was found that theworking capital has increased which could be mainly due to increased sales. The GrossOperating Cycle declined significantly but the reduction was nullified due to the reduction ininventory conversion period. This is why we see that Net operating Cycle for last two years isalmost identical. The main areas of emphasis were work in progress conversion period andcreditors conversion period. Debtors conversion period reduced but work in progress andcreditors conversion period increased. Few suggestions that are recommended for bettermanagement of working capital are reducing inter-corporate deposits and loans, reducingfinished goods inventory, increment in creditors payment period etc.The company uses Operating Cycle Method to calculate its Working Capital method.Thus, good management of working capital is part of good financial management. Effectiveuse of working capital will contribute to the operational efficiency of a company, optimumuse will help to generate maximum returns.Projectsformba.blogspot.com
  • Projectsformba.blogspot.com INTRODUCTIONWORKING CAPTAL MANAGEMENTProjectsformba.blogspot.com
  • Projectsformba.blogspot.comEvery business needs investment to procure fixed assets, which remain in use for a longperiod. Money invested in these assets is called ‘Long term Funds’ or ‘Fixed Capital’.Business also needs funds for short-term purposes to finance current operations. Investment inshort term assets like cash, inventories, debtors etc., is called ‘Short-term Funds’ or ‘WorkingCapital’.The ‘Working Capital’ can be categorized, as funds needed for carrying out day-to-dayoperations of the business smoothly.The management of the working capital is equally important as the management of long-termfinancial investment. The goal of Working capital management is to ensure that the firm isable to continue its operations and that it has sufficient cash flow to satisfy both maturingshort-term debt and upcoming operational expenses.Every running business needs working capital. Even a business which is fully equipped withall types of fixed assets required, is bound to collapse without (i) adequate supply of raw materials for processing; (ii) cash to pay for wages, power and other costs; (iii) creating a stock of finished goods to feed the market demand regularly; and, (iv) the ability to grant credit to its customers.All these require working capital. Working capital is thus like the lifeblood of a business. Thebusiness will not be able to carry on day-to-day activities without the availability of adequateworking capital.Projectsformba.blogspot.com

  • Projectsformba.blogspot.comApproaches to Working capital ManagementWorking capital management takes place on two levels: • Ratio analysis can be used to monitor overall trends in working capital and to identify areas requiring closer management. • The individual components of working capital can be effectively managed by using various techniques and strategies. When considering these techniques and strategies, companies need to recognize that each department has a unique mix of working capital components. The emphasis that needs to be placed on each component varies according to the companies. For example, some companies have significant inventory levels; others have little if any inventory. Furthermore, working capital management is not an end in itself. It is an integral part of the company’s overall management. The needs of efficient working capital management must be considered in relation to other aspects of the company’s financial and non-financial performance.COMPONENTSThe term working capital refers to the amount of capital which is readily available to anorganization. That is, working capital is the difference between resources in cash orreadily convertible into cash (Current Assets) and organizational commitments for whichProjectsformba.blogspot.com
  • Projectsformba.blogspot.com cash will soon be required (Current Liabilities). Current Assets are resources which are in cash or will soon be converted into cash in "the ordinary course of business". Current Liabilities are commitments which will soon require cash settlement in "the ordinary course of business". WORKING CAPITAL = CURRENT ASSETS - CURRENT LIABILITIES In a departments Statement of Financial Position, these components of working capital are reported under the following headings: Current Assets• Liquid Assets (cash and bank deposits)• Inventory• Debtors and Receivables Current Liabilities• Bank Overdraft• Creditors and Payables• Other Short Term Liabilities Component of Working Capital Basis of Valuation i. Stock of raw material Purchase cost of raw Materials ii. Stock of work in process At cost or market value, whichever is lower iii. Stock of finished goods Cost of production Projectsformba.blogspot.com
  • Projectsformba.blogspot.com iv. Debtors Cost of sales or sales value v. Cash Working expensesWorking Capital CycleWorking capital cycle involves conversions and rotation of variousconstituents/components of the working capital. Initially ‘cash’ is converted into rawmaterials.Cash flows in a cycle into, around and out of a business. It is the businesss life blood andevery managers primary task is to help keep it flowing and to use the cash flow togenerate profits. If a business is operating profitably, then it should, in theory, generatecash surpluses. If it doesnt generate surpluses, the business will eventually run out ofcash and expire.The faster a business expands the more cash it will need for working capital andinvestment. The cheapest and best sources of cash exist as working capital right withinbusiness. Good management of working capital will generate cash will help improveprofits and reduce risks. The cost of providing credit to customers and holding stocks canrepresent a substantial proportion of a firms total profits.The usage of fixed assets result in value additions, the raw materials get converted intowork in process and then into finished goods. When sold on credit, the finished goodsassume the form of debtors who give the business cash on due date. Thus ‘cash’ assumesits original form again at the end of one such working capital cycle but in the course itpasses through various other forms of current assets too. This is how various componentsof current assets keep on changing their forms due to value addition. As a result, theyrotate and business operations continue. Thus, the working capital cycle involves rotationProjectsformba.blogspot.com
  • Projectsformba.blogspot.comof various constituents of the working capital. While managing the working capital, twocharacteristics of current assets should be kept in mind viz. (i) short life span, and (ii) Swift transformation into other form of current asset. Each constituent of current asset has comparatively very short life span. Investmentremains in a particular form of current asset for a short period. The life span of currentassets depends upon the time required in the activities of procurement; production, salesand collection and degree of synchronization among them. A very short life span ofcurrent assets results into swift transformation into other form of current assets for arunning business. These characteristics have certain implications: i Decision regarding management of the working capital has to be taken frequently and on a repeat basis. ii. The various components of the working capital are closely related andmismanagement of any one component adversely affects the other components too. iii. The difference between the present value and the book value of profit is not significant.Projectsformba.blogspot.com
  • Projectsformba.blogspot.comIf money moves faster around the cycle (e.g. collect monies due from debtors morequickly) or the amount of money tied up is reduced (e.g. reduce inventory levels relativeto sales), the business will generate more cash or it will need to borrow less money tofund working capital. As a consequence, the cost of bank interest can be reduced oradditional free money will be available to support additional sales growth or investment.Similarly, if improved terms with suppliers are negotiated e.g. longer credit or anincreased credit limit, then free finance to help fund future sales can be effectivelycreated.Thus…. If you ....... Then ...... • Collect receivables (debtors) faster You release cash from the cycleProjectsformba.blogspot.com
  • Projectsformba.blogspot.com • Collect receivables (debtors) slower Your receivables soak up cash • Get better credit (in terms of duration or You increase your cash amount) from suppliers resources • Shift inventory (stocks) faster You free up cash • Move inventory (stocks) slower You consume more cashMANAGEMENT OF COMPONENTS OF WORKINGCAPITALInventory ManagementInventory includes all types of stocks. For effective working capital management,inventory needs to be managed effectively. The level of inventory should be such that thetotal cost of ordering and holding inventory is the least. Simultaneously, stock out costsshould be minimized. Business, therefore, should fix the minimum safety stock level, re-order level and ordering quantity so that the inventory cost is reduced and itsmanagement becomes efficient.Average stock-holding periods will be influenced by the nature of the business. Forexample, a fresh vegetable shop might turn over its entire stock every few days while amotor factor would be much slower as it may carry a wide range of rarely-used spareparts in case somebody needs them.many large manufacturers operate on a just-in-time (JIT) basis whereby all thecomponents to be assembled on a particular today, arrive at the factory early thatmorning, no earlier - no later. This helps to minimize manufacturing costs as JIT stockstake up little space, minimize stock-holding and virtually eliminate the risks of obsoleteor damaged stock. Because JIT manufacturers hold stock for a very short time, they areable to conserve substantial cash. JIT is a good model to strive for as it embraces all theProjectsformba.blogspot.com
  • Projectsformba.blogspot.comprinciples of prudent stock management. Factors to be considered when determining optimum stock levels include: • What are the projected sales of each product? • How widely available are raw materials, components etc.? • How long does it take for delivery by suppliers? • Can you remove slow movers from your product range without compromising best sellers?Debtors ManagementThe objective of any management policy pertaining to debtors would be to ensure that thebenefits arising due to the debtors are more than the cost incurred for debtors and the gapbetween benefits and cost increases profits. An effective control of receivables helps agreat deal in property managing it. Each business should, therefore, try to find outaverage credit extended to its client using the below given formulaCreditors ManagementCreditors are a vital part of effective cash management and should be managed carefullyto enhance the cash position. Purchasing initiates cash outflows and an over-zealouspurchasing function can create liquidity problems.Projectsformba.blogspot.com
  • Projectsformba.blogspot.com Thus, the following factors should be considered: i. The purchasing authority in the company and whether it is tightly managed or spread among a number of people. ii. The purchase quantities should be geared to demand forecasts. iii. Order quantities should be used that take into account stock-holding and purchasing costs. iv. The cost of carrying stock should be known. v. Dependency on a single supplier should be avoided and facilities like best discounts, credit terms etc. should be used from alternative suppliers. vi. Suppliers’ returns policy should be considered. Cash Management Cash is the most liquid current asset. It is of vital importance to the daily operations of business. While the proportion of assets held in the form of cash is very small, its efficient management is crucial to the solvency of the business. Therefore, planning cash and controlling its use are very important tasks. Cash budgeting is a useful device for this purpose. FINANCIAL RATIO ANALYSIS Introduction Financial ratio analysis calculates and compares various ratios of amounts and balances taken from the financial statements. The main purposes of working capital ratio analysis are:• to indicate working capital management performance; and• To assist in identifying areas requiring closer management. Projectsformba.blogspot.com
  • Projectsformba.blogspot.com Three key points need to be taken into account when analyzing financial ratios:• The results are based on highly summarized information. Consequently, situations which require control might not be apparent, or situations which do not warrant significant effort might be unnecessarily highlighted;• Different departments face very different situations. Comparisons between them, or with global "ideal" ratio values, can be misleading;• Ratio analysis is somewhat one-sided; favorable results mean little, whereas unfavorable results are usually significant. However, financial ratio analysis is valuable because it raises questions and indicates directions for more detailed investigation. Working Capital Ratio Current Ratio Current Assets divided by Current Liabilities The working capital ratio (or current ratio) attempts to measure the level of liquidity, that is, the level of safety provided by the excess of current assets over current liabilities. Quick Ratio Liquid Assets divided by Current Liabilities This is another measure of liquidity. It looks at the number of days that liquid assets (for example, inventory) could service daily operating expenses (including salaries). Stock Turnover Ratio Cost of Sales divided by Average Stock Level Projectsformba.blogspot.com
  • Projectsformba.blogspot.comThis ratio applies only to finished goods. It indicates the speed with which inventory issold-or, to look at it from the other angle, how long inventory items remain on theshelves. It can be used for the inventory balance as a whole, for classes of inventory, orfor individual inventory items.Debtor Turnover RatioThere is a close relationship between debtors and credit sales to third parties (that is, salesother than to the Crown). If sales increase, debtors will increase, and conversely, if salesdecrease debtors will decrease. Credit Sales per Period X Days per period Average DebtorsThe debtor ratio does not solve the collection problem, but it acts as an indicator that anadverse trend is developing. Remedial action can then be instigated.Creditor Turnover RatioIt expresses the relationship between credit purchases and the liability to creditors. It canbe stated as the number of days that credit purchases are carried on the books. Credit Purchases per Period X Days per period Average CreditorsThus…Se. Ratio Formulae Result InterpretationNo. Average Stock On average, the value of the Stock * 365/ entire stock is turned every x Turnover = x days Cost of Goods days.

Current Assets are those assets that can readily be turn into cash or can be done so within 12 months in the course of business. Current Liabilities are those Total Current amounts which are due to pay Assets/ within the coming 12 months.(iv) Current Ratio = x times Total Current For example, 1.5 times means Liabilities that one should be able to lay his/her hands on $1.50 for every $1.00 one owe. Less than 1 time e.g. 0.75 means that one could have liquidity problems and be under pressure to generate sufficient cash to meet oncoming demands.Projectsformba.blogspot.com
  • Projectsformba.blogspot.com OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDYOBJECTIVES OF THE STUDYThe objective of working capital management is to maintain the optimum balance of eachof the working capital components. This includes making sure that funds are held as cashin bank deposits for as long as and in the largest amounts possible, thereby maximizingProjectsformba.blogspot.com
  • Projectsformba.blogspot.comthe interest earned. However, such cash may more appropriately be invested in otherassets or in reducing other liabilities. My objectives of analyzing working capitalmanagement in BEETEL are as follows:  To study how BEETEL can improve its operating cycle.  To study the current discrepancies in their current Working Capital Management structure and ways to overcome them.  To study the method which BEETEL is using to ascertain its working capital requirement.  To learn about the sources from which BEETEL is procuring funds to fulfill its working capital requirements.  To study where the procured funds have been used by BEETEL.  To study whether the company is running effectively with as little money tied up in current accounts as possible.  To analyze whether the method being used for ascertainment of working capital requirement is efficient or not.  To have an appreciation of the financial environment within which business operates.Projectsformba.blogspot.com

  • Projectsformba.blogspot.comRaw Material Conversion Period:Increased from 11.15 days in 2005 to 25 days in 2006 and then it further increased to 40days in 2007, which is not a good sign. A constant increment will lead to higher workingcapital requirement.Reasons for the increase in the raw material conversion period are: 1) Lead Time: )i It has increased because BEETEL has stared procuring a major part of its raw material from international (25%) suppliers, earlier the company was procuring from domestic (75%) suppliers. )ii Moreover, for its spare parts and components also the company has shifted from domestic (16%) suppliers to international (84%) suppliers. 2) Minimum Stock Level: )i As the company is buying its raw material from foreign suppliers so it has to maintain higher level of minimum stock as compared to previous years. )ii The company increased its installed capacity from 20,00,000 units in 2004-2005 to 40,00,00 units in 2005-06 with a corresponding increase in its production from 3,92,678 units to 32,20,612 units. )iii The installed capacity was again increased to 45,00,000 units in 2006-07 with a corresponding increase in production to 37,59835 units. 3) Quantity of Material purchased in a single order: i) This is because the company is now buying from international buyers and and is maintaining a higher level of lead time so it is ordering less in each order.Work in Progress Conversion Period:Projectsformba.blogspot.com
  • Projectsformba.blogspot.comIncreased from 2.94 days in 2005 to 5 days in 2006 and again further increased 10 days in2007, which is again not a good sign. This means that the goods are not worked uponefficiently and there is increment in the time taken to process goods.Reasons for the increase in the Work in Progress Conversion Period are: 1) Time Spent on each Process: i) Till 2004-05 the company had 3 processes in all and was into assembling. After the year 2004-05, the company entered into backward integration and stared manufacturing its products with 8 processes, which includes: Processes Process 1: Manufacturing Outer Plastic Body Process 2: Manufacturing Handset Microphone & Button Speaker installing Process 3: Manufacturing of Hook Switch------To check if the handset is picker or not. Process 4: Manufacturing Rubber/Plastic Keypad--------For Dialing Process 5: Manufacturing LCD screen-------If the phone has facilities like Caller ID or name-number storage. Process 6: Manufacturing Internal 4.3 ohm speaker for ring tone generation Process 7: Manufacturing Reed Switch for Tone-Pulse selection Process 8: Manufacturing Electronic Circuit Integration on PCB-----with following components: Sub Processes under process 8: i) Opto-Coupler-----To check if the phone if off Hook ii) 8086 Based 4 IC’s iii) A number of Resistors and Capacitors iv) LED(s) for Ring and dial v) Telephone Jack Interface vi) Copper Plated keypad interface vii) EEPROM for data storage viii)DTMF encoder and decoder(decoder only if Caller Id present) ii) The company has installed better technology for manufacturing.Finished Goods Conversion Period:This has decreased from 37.74 days in 2006 to 26.27 days in 2006 and further decreasedto 17 days in 2007, which is a very good indicator. Thus, we see that the negative effectsProjectsformba.blogspot.com
  • Projectsformba.blogspot.comdue to high raw material conversion period and high work in progress conversion periodare almost wiped off.Reasons for the decrease in the Finished Goods Conversion Period are:1) Better advertisements2) Better transportation facilities, reducing the time in delivery of goods from the manufacturing unit to the buyers.Debtors Conversion Period:Decreased from 56.67 days in 2005 to 26.40 days in 2006 and 12.87 days in 2007, whichmeans that the company is collecting its debt more efficiently. A lower debtor conversionperiod together with increased sales is a good sign for the company.Reasons for the decrease in the Debtors conversion period Conversion Period are:1) Credit Period allowed to customers: i) The company shifted from centralization to decentralization method for collection of payments from its debtors and on the other hand to benefit its customers the company increased its credit collection period and hence the steps positively affected the debtors collection period.Gross Operating Cycle:Decreased from 96.40 days in 2005 to 82.67 days in 2006 and 79.87 days in 2007, whichis mainly due to the reduction in debtor conversion period. A reduction in gross operatingcycle means reduced need of funds for day to day working. But the company should lookfor the improvement in inventory conversion period.Creditor Conversion Period:Decreased from 46.17 days in 2005 to 45.54 days in 2006 and 45 days in 2007, whichmeans that the company is paying off its creditors earlier then before. The companyProjectsformba.blogspot.com
  • Projectsformba.blogspot.comneeds to delay payment to its creditors without loosing its reputation i.e. availing morecredit from its creditors to finance its working capital needs.Reasons for the decrease in the Creditors conversion period Conversion Period are:1) Credit Period allowed by the suppliers: i) The company is building up its goodwill and paying back its debts on time. ii) As the major suppliers of the company are international suppliers, hence the company faced a credit policy change from their side. iii) Due to 8 times increase in production capacity, the company is procuring more quantity of raw material and hence on an average the credit time allowed by its suppliers is being reduced , so the company has to pay back early.Net Operating cycle:Decreased from 50.23 days in 2005 to 37.13 days in 2006 and 34.87 days in 2007,indicating that the company’s requirement has decreased with comparison to previousyear. The reasons for the same have been discussed above.Projectsformba.blogspot.com
  • Projectsformba.blogspot.com SUGGESTIONS & RECOMMENDATIONSRecommendationsThe management of the working capital is equally important as the management of long-term financial investment. The goal of Working capital management is to ensure that thefirm is able to continue its operations and that it has sufficient cash flow to satisfy bothmaturing short-term debt and upcoming operational expenses.Projectsformba.blogspot.com
  • Projectsformba.blogspot.comThe various possible steps that BEETEL may take to improve its working capitalmanagement are as follows: • The company should look indigenous suppliers for its raw material and spare parts requirements and reduce its lead time. • The company is increasing its installed capacity and its production too each year but the increase in production is not in proportion to installed capacity. Thus, the two must be matched. • Availing more credit from its suppliers. • Prompt collection from its debtors. • Moving towards zero working capital. • Improvement in Inventory Conversion Period, mainly reduction in Work in Progress. • Reduction in loans and inter-corporate deposits and utilizing the money to pay off debts and loans taken by the company. • Given the working loan of Rs. 56,84,50,000 and interest thereon is Rs. 4,40,80,000 in 2007 which is almost 7.75%. So, the company might consider some other sources of cheaper loans. • The company can maintain separate books of accounts for their manufacturing and trading businesses for more clarity and transparency in operations.Working capital management is an important yardstick to measure a company operationaland financial efficiency. This aspect must form part of the company’s strategic andoperational thinking. Efforts should constantly be made to improve the working capitalposition. This will yield greater efficiencies and improve customer satisfaction.Projectsformba.blogspot.com
