  2. 2. Defining Finance  The study of money within the firm.  The functional area with the responsibility of:  Finding funds for the firm  Managing funds of the firm  Determining best uses of the firm’s funds
  3. 3. The Financial Manager  Individual who is responsible for the finance function  Effective, financial manager must develop and follow a financial plan.
  4. 4. Role of the Financial Manager  Projecting month-by-month flow of funds into and      out of the business Comparing monthly inflows to monthly outflows Finding ways to generate revenue from excess funds Adjusting inflows and or outflows and looking for other funding sources ( in case of fund shortage) Analyzing alternate sources of funds and finding the most efficient source ( in case new funds are required) Monitoring and evaluating results of the financial plan.
  5. 5. Month-by-Month Outward Flow of Funds  Represents the firm’s use of funds  Cost of daily operations: Rent, utilities, wages, interest expense, taxes.  Cost of credit service: Most firms cannot do business strictly on cash basis, so they provide customers with some form of credit to encourage larger purchases and gain new customers.  Cost of inventory: To survive in a competitive environment firms must provide for customer needs and cannot afford to be out of product that customer demands. ( Further complicated by demand fluctuation).
  6. 6. Month-by-Month Outward Flow of Funds  Purchase of major assets: Land, buildings, equipment (Must be periodically replaced and upgraded) Expansion also requires additional assets.  Debt payment: Payment of interest and principal  Dividend payment: Made to the shareholder as form of earnings on their stocks. Most firms pay dividends to keep their stock attractive to potential investors.
  7. 7. Month-by-Month Inward Flow of Funds  From revenue generated by the business  Can be projected by estimating sales volume  Where credit sales are involved, rate of payment on accounts receivable must be estimated  Interest income expected from investment of cash reserves and other excess funds.
  8. 8. Monthly Inflow to Monthly Outflow: Comparison  Three possible outcomes:  Perfect matching: No action required ( Unlikely)  Expected expenditure for the month greater than expected income ( Additional funds must be found to cover shortfall)  Expected income for the month greater than expected expenditure: Company has excess funds.

  11. 11. Generating Revenue from Excess Funds: High Liquidity Investments  Commercial paper: • Short term note ( Represents a loan to a major • • • • corporation with a high credit standing) Maturity date: Three days to nine months Riskier than T bills, not as liquid Purchaser paid a higher rate of interest Normally issued in amounts of $25,000 to 100,000.
  12. 12. Generating Revenue from Excess Funds: High Liquidity Investments  Certificates of deposit/CDs: • Notes issued by a commercial bank/ brokerage firm • Size runs from $100 to 100,000 • Maturity dates: Range from 24 hours to 10 years • Issued for 7 days to 42 months • CDs issued by banks: Early redeeming possible (Substantial interest penalty).
