  7. 7. TILAK MAHARASHTRA UNIVERSITY, PUNE Executive Summary: Traditional analysis of working capital is defensive; it asks " Can the company meet its short-term cash obligations?" But working capital accounts also tell you about the operational efficiency of the company. The length of the cash conversion cycle tells you how much working capital is tied up in ongoing operations. And trends in each of the days- outstanding numbers may foretell improvements or declines in the health of the business. Implementing an effective working capital management system is an excellent way for many companies to improve their earnings. The two main aspects of working capital management are ratio analysis and management of individual components of working capital. Thus the importance of adequate of working capital in commercial undertakings can never be over emphasized. The various studies conducted by the Bureau of Public Enterprises have shown that one of the reasons for the poor performance of public sector undertakings in our country has been the large amount of funds locked up in working capital. This results in over capitalization. Over capitalization implies that a company has too large funds for its requirements, resulting in a low rate of situation which implies a less than optimal use of resources. Insolvency risk is there in the case of under capitalization of working capital. Hence working capital management plays a pivotal role in growth or to sustain in market for any organization. WORKING CAPITAL MANAGEMENT- MANOJ S.HULE. 7
  9. 9. TILAK MAHARASHTRA UNIVERSITY, PUNE CHAPTER-1 RATIONALE FOR STUDY Working capital is the money used to make goods and attract sales. The less working capital is used to attract sale, the higher is it likely to be the return of investment. Working capital management is about the commercial and financial aspect of inventory, credit, marketing, royalty and investment policy. The higher the profit margin, lower is it likely to be the level of working capital tied up in creating and selling titles. The faster that we create and sell the books the higher is it likely to be the return on investment. The perfect world does not requires or concentrates about current assets and current liabilities because there would not be uncertainty, no transaction costs, information search costs, scheduling costs or production and technology constraints. The unit cost of production would not vary with the quantity produced . Capital, Labour and products markets shall be perfectly competitive and would reflect all available information. Thus in such an environment , there would be no advantage for investing in short term assets. Whereas, the world in which we live is not perfect. It is characterized by considerable amount of uncertainty regarding the demand, market price, quality and availability of own products and those of suppliers. There are transaction costs for purchasing or selling goods or securities. Information is costly to obtain and is not equally distributed. There are spreads between the borrowing and lending rates for investments and financing of equal risk. Similarly each organization is faced with its own limits on the production capacity and technology it can employ. There are fixed as well as variable costs associated with producing goods. In other words, the markets in which real firms operate are not perfectly competitive. These real world facts introduce problems and require the necessity of working capital. The most important areas in the day to day management of the firm, is the management of working capital. Working capital Management is the functional area of finance that covers all the current accounts of the firm. It is concerned with management of the level of individual current assets as well as the management of total working capital. Working Capital Management involves the relationship between a firm's short-term assets and its short-term liabilities. The goal of working WORKING CAPITAL MANAGEMENT- MANOJ S.HULE. 9
  10. 10. TILAK MAHARASHTRA UNIVERSITY, PUNE capital management is to ensure that a firm is able to continue its operations and that it has sufficient ability to satisfy both maturing short-term debt and upcoming operational expenses. The management of working capital involves managing inventories, accounts receivable and payable, and cash. For example, an organization may be faced with an uncertainty regarding availability of sufficient quantity of crucial inputs in future at reasonable price. This may necessitate the holding of inventory i.e. current assets. Similarly an organization may be faced with an uncertainty regarding the level of its future cash inflows and insufficient amount of cash may incur substantial costs. This may necessitate the holding of a reserve of short- term marketable securities, again a short term capital asset. The unpredictable and uncertain global market plays a vital role in working capital. Though the globalization of economy and free trading of products envisages the continuous availability of products but now much its cost effective and quality based varies concern to concerns. Working Capital refers to the funds invested in current assets, ie. Investment in stocks, sundry debtors, cash and other current assets. Current assets are essential to use fixed assets profitably. The term current assets refers to those assets which in the ordinary course of business can be converted into cash within one year without undergoing diminish in value and without disrupting the operations of the firm. The current assets are cash. Marketable securities, accounts receivable and inventory. Current liabilities are those which are to be paid within a year out out of the current assets or earnings of the concern. The current liabilities are accounts payable, bills payable, bank overdraft and outstanding expenses. WORKING CAPITAL MANAGEMENT- MANOJ S.HULE. 10
  12. 12. TILAK MAHARASHTRA UNIVERSITY, PUNE CHAPTER-2 OBJECTIVE OF STUDY * TITLE OF THE PROJECT WORKING CAPITAL MANAGEMENT OF AIRPORTS AUTHORITY OF INDIA. * OBJECTIVE OF WORKING CAPITAL MANAGEMENT The main objective is to ensure the maintenance of satisfactory level of working capital in such a way that it is neither inadequate nor excessive. It should not only be sufficient to cover the current liabilities but ensure a reasonable margin of safety also. 1. To minimize the amount of capital employed in financing the current assets. This also leads to an improvement in the "Return of Capital Employed". 2. To manage the current assets in such a way that the marginal return on investment in these assets is not less than the cost of capital acquired to finance them. This will ensure the maximization of the value of the business unit. 3. To maintain the proper balance between the amount of current assets and the current liabilities in such a way that the firm is always able to meet the financial obligations, whenever due. This will ensure the smooth working of the unit without any paucity of funds. 4. To decide upon the optimum level of investment in various current asset I.e. determining the size of working capital. 5. By optimizing the investment in current asset and by reducing the level of current liability, the company can reduce the locking up of funds in working capital and thereby it can improve the return on capital employed in the business. 6. To decide upon the optimum mix of short-term funds in relation to long-term capital. WORKING CAPITAL MANAGEMENT- MANOJ S.HULE. 12
  13. 13. TILAK MAHARASHTRA UNIVERSITY, PUNE 7. The company should always be in a position to meet its current obligation, which should be properly supported by current assets available with the firm. Maintaining excess fund in working capital means locking of funds without any returns. 8. To locate appropriate source of short term financing. 9. Maintaining working capital at appropriate levels. 10. Availability of sufficient funds at time of need. 11. The Firm should manage its current asset in such a way that marginal returns on investment in current asset is not less than the cost of capital employed to finance the current assets. WORKING CAPITAL MANAGEMENT- MANOJ S.HULE. 13
  14. 14. TILAK MAHARASHTRA UNIVERSITY, PUNE * Scope Of Study:(Airports Authority of India-Working Capital Management). The Scope of the Study is as follows: 1. Debt Collection: By proper Working Capital Management the Debts collection period of Sundry Debtors could be reduced as against the prevailing Debt collection period by vigour's follow up which in turn will increased the Cash/Bank Balances available at the disposal of the company to run the day to day efforts and for Short Term Deposits and so also for liquidation the current liabilities which will be an ideal situation of a good Working Capital Management. The study aims in achieving this goal of better Working Capital Management. 2. Inventory Management: The Excess storage of Inventories more than the normal required level to carry out the day to day functions of the Company speaks of poor Working Capital Management, which results in locking on up precious working capital. Keeping optimum inventory level, the study aims at avoiding over stocking and over stocking so also avoid blocking of funds. WORKING CAPITAL MANAGEMENT- MANOJ S.HULE. 14
  16. 16. TILAK MAHARASHTRA UNIVERSITY, PUNE CHAPTER-3 PROFILE OF THE COMPANY HISTORY OF AVIATION INDUSTRY The aviation industry in India has been growing exponentially over the past few years with the new reforms being introduced by the government. This industry has seen a major boom in terms of sales turnover of air service operators. The Indian Civil aviation Industry took its first steps in the early 1930s, when the TATA's established TATA AIRLINES. The next two decades saw the entry of several private carriers. In 1953, the government chose to nationalize private carriers and set up Indian Airlines to serve the domestic market and Air India to serve the international market. The national carriers enjoyed a monopoly till 1990- 91, when the Open Sky policy was implemented. With the repeal of the Air Corporation Act, several private players such as Jet Air, Sahara Airlines, Modi luft, and East Weste Airlines were allowed to operate commercial airlines and a new chapter in the history of Indian Aviation began. In 2003, more reforms were introduced in the aviation sector like an increase in the FDI limit to 49% from 40%, and a reduction of excise duty on aviation turbine fuel to 8% from 16%. The policy reforms and a favorable business environment attracted several more private players like Air Deccan, Spice Jet, Go Airways, Indigo Airlines, etc, who were set-up to operate under a low cost model. The Indian aviation sector is currently pegged at US $ 7.7 billion and is expected to grow four-fold to US $ 33.4 billion in the next three years. Currently, there are 0.1 million travelers using the air transport services. It is estimated that 50 million people belonging to the middle income group will use the low cost airlines in the coming years. The aviation industry is all set to conquer greater heights with WORKING CAPITAL MANAGEMENT- MANOJ S.HULE. 16
  17. 17. TILAK MAHARASHTRA UNIVERSITY, PUNE many new air service operators entering this market. The government is planning to establish an independent regulatory authority, to be called Airport Economic Regulatory Authority (AERA), to regulate tariffs in heavy- traffic sectors. However, there are a few major challenges that may hinder the growth of the aviation industry. These include high fuel costs, high airport charges, and the high rate of failure in the airline business. It is very essential to understand the history of aviation sector because growth of Airports Authority of India is related to the Aviation sector. It cannot exist independently as both are mutually dependent and share the ups and downs in the industry. But there is difference in the route of development which has taken place in the formation of Airports Authority of India. The organization has evolved to its present state many developments and changes in the ownership. Before Airports Authority was formed it was only Civil Aviation Department (CAD) which was trusted with development, management and expansion of airports in the country. The department was purely a Central Government entity and management was under direct purview of the then Minister. The first branching from the Civil Aviation Department took place when two divisions were formed namely International Airports Authority of India (IAAI) and National Airports Authority (NAA). The IAAI was formed to manage and expand the four international airports of the country and the other airports were under the management of NAA. This was the first time a professional management was introduced in the civil aviation sector by forming a public sector undertaking. Under the Honorable late Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi a new initiative was taken by merging the two divisions which were although a monopoly sector were competing for the same market. A new entity was formed and was named as Airports Authority of India(AAI). The entire journey leading up to the formation of WORKING CAPITAL MANAGEMENT- MANOJ S.HULE. 17

TILAK MAHARASHTRA UNIVERSITY, PUNE AIRPORTS AUTHORITY OF INDIA AT PRESENT Corporate Office Airports Authority of India Rajiv Gandhi Bhavan, Safdarjung Airport, New Delhi-110 003 Phone:91-11-24632950 Airports Authority of India(AAI) was constituted by an Act of Parliament and came into being on 1st April, 1995 by merging erstwhile National Airports Authority and International Airports Authority of India. The merger brought into existence a single organization entrusted with the responsibility of creating, upgrading , maintaining and managing Civil Aviation infrastructure both on the ground and air space in the country. Despite many tragic occurrences like 9/11, Afghan War, Iraq war and SARS that struck the Civil Aviation sector the world over during the last few years and left it bleeding, Airports Authority of India (AAI) has persistently come up with good results, showing all around growth including increased revenue and higher level of profitability while building up the infrastructure. WORKING CAPITAL MANAGEMENT- MANOJ S.HULE. 19
  20. 20. TILAK MAHARASHTRA UNIVERSITY, PUNE AAI manages 126 airports, which include 11 international airports, 89 domestic airports and 26 civil enclaves at Defence airfields. AAI provides air navigation services over 2.8 million square nautical miles of airspace. During the year 2002-03, AAI at various airports handled about 5 lakhs aircraft movements(4 lakhs domestic and 1 lakh international); 40 million passengers (26 millions domestic and 14 million international) and 9 lakh tones of cargo(3 lakh domestic and 6 lakh international). AAI also provides Air Traffic Management Services over entire Indian Air Space and adjoining oceanic areas with ground installations at all airports and 25other locations to ensure safety of aircraft operations. FUNCTIONS OF AAI . Control and management of the Indian airspace extending beyond the territorial limits of the country, as accepted by ICAO. . Design, Development, Operation and Maintenance of International and Domestic Airports and Civil Enclaves. . Construction, Modification and Management of Passenger Terminals. . Development and Management of Cargo Terminals of International and Domestic airports. . Provisions of Passenger Facilities and Information System at the Passenger Terminals at airports. . Expansion and strengthening of operation area viz. Runways, Aprons, Taxiway, etc. . Provision of visual aids. WORKING CAPITAL MANAGEMENT- MANOJ S.HULE. 20
  21. 21. TILAK MAHARASHTRA UNIVERSITY, PUNE . Provision of Communication and Navigational aids viz. ILS, DVOR, DME, Radar etc. AAI has set for itself ambitious targets for upgrading the infrastructure during the 10th Five- Year Plan and is working steadily to achieve these targets. The airports at Ahmedabad, Amirtsar, Bangalore, Goa, Guwahati, Hyderabad and CIAL(Pvt.), in addition to those at Mumbai, Delhi, Calcutta, Chennai and Thiruvananthapuram, are today International Airports open to operations even by Foreign International Airlines. Besides the International flights by National Flag Carriers operate from Calicut, Coimbatore, Tiruchirappalli, Vananasi, Jaipur and Gaya Airports too. Tourist Charter now touch Agra, Coimbatore, Jaipur, Lucknow , Patna airports etc. AAI's proposal to lease out, on global tender basis, the four most profitable jewels in its crown viz. Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkatta and Chennai airports primarily aims to upgrade these to emulate the world standars. All major air-routes over Indian landmass are Radar covered (24 Radar installations at 11 locations) along with VOR/DVOR coverage (72 installations) co- located with Distance Measuring Equipment (71 installations), 39 runways provided with ILS installations with Night Landing Facilities at 36 Airports and Automatic Message Switching System at 15 airports. AAI's successful implementation of Automatic Dependence Surveillance system, using indigenous technology, at Calcutta and Chennai Air Traffic Control Centers, gave India the distinction of being the first country to use this advanced technology in the South East Asian region enabling effective Air Traffic Control over oceanic areas using satellite mode of communication. Use of remote controlled VHF coverage, along with satellite communication links, has given added strength of our WORKING CAPITAL MANAGEMENT- MANOJ S.HULE. 21

Linking to 80 locations by V-Sat installations during 2005 shall vastly enhanced Air Traffic Management and in turn safety of aircraft operations besides enabling administrative and operational control over our extensive airport network. AAI's endeavour in enhanced focus on "customer's expectations' has evinced enthusiastic response to independent agency organized customer satisfaction surveys at 3 busy airports. These surveys have enabled us to undertake improvements on aspects recommended by the airport users. The receptacles for our 'Business reply letters' at airports have gained popularity; these responses enable us to understand the changing aspirations of airport users. During the first year of the millennium, AAI endeavours to make its operations more transparent and the availability of instantaneous information to customers by deploying state- of-art information Technology. The specific training focus on improving employee response and professional skill up gradation has been manifested. AAI's four training establishments viz. Civil Aviation Training College- Allahabad, National Institute of Aviation Management and Research- Delhi and Fire Training Centres at Delhi and Kolkata are expected to be busier than ever before during 2001.

  26. 26. TILAK MAHARASHTRA UNIVERSITY, PUNE CHAPTER 4 THEORETICAL PERSPECTIVE The financial management of any business organization involves the three following vital functions. 1. Management of Long Term Assets. 2. Management of Long Term Capital. 3. Management of Short Term Assets and Liabilities. In most of the organizations of the first & second one which refers to Capital Budgeting and Capital Structure respectively will be maintained and cope up with organization growth. The third one which refers to Working Capital Management requires more skills for sustaining and steady growth rate for any organization. The working capital management includes decisions 1. How much stock/inventory to be hold. 2. How much cash/bank balances should be maintained. 3. How much the firm should provide credit to its customers. 4. How much the firm should enjoy credit from its suppliers. 5. What should be the composition of current assets. 6. What should be the composition of current liabilities. Some of the definitions of working capital management: PROF K V SMITH: “Working capital management is concerned with problems that arise in attempting to manage the current asset, the current liability and the interrelation that exist between them”. WESTON AND BRIGHAM: “Working capital management refer to all aspect of administration of both current asset and current liability”. WORKING CAPITAL MANAGEMENT- MANOJ S.HULE. 26
  27. 27. TILAK MAHARASHTRA UNIVERSITY, PUNE JAMES C VAN HORNE: “Current asset, by definition are asset normally converted into cash within one year. Working capital management is concerned with the administration of these asset-namely cash and marketable securities”. IMPORTANCE OF WORKING CAPITAL MANAGEMENT According to Husband and Hockery,”the prime object of management is to make a profit, either or not this is accomplished, depend on the manner in which working capital is accomplished”. The primary object of working capital is management is to manage the firm’s current asset and current liability in such a manner that a satisfactory level of working capital is maintained. The firm may become insolvent if it cannot maintain a satisfactory level of working capital. Working capital assists in increasing the profitability of the concern. The working capital position decide the various policies in the business with receipt to general operation viz importance of working capital. Positive correlation between sale and current assets: There is a positive correlation between the sale of the product of the firm and its current assets. Increase in the sale of the product requires a corresponding increase in current assets. Therefore, the current asset must be managed properly. Investment in current asset: Generally more than half of the total capacity of the firm is invested in current assets. Thus less than half of the capital is blocked in fixed asset. Therefore management of working capital attracts the attention of the management. No alternative for current asset: While fixed capital can be acquired on lease in emergency, there is no alternative for current asset. Investment in current asset cannot be avoided without substantial losses. Important for small unit: The management of working capital is more important for small unit because they do not relay on long term capital market and have easy access to short term finance source such as trade credit, short term bank loans etc. FACTORS DETERMINING WORKING CAPITAL REQUIREMENTS The various factors determining the working capital requirement in a business firm: WORKING CAPITAL MANAGEMENT- MANOJ S.HULE. 27
  28. 28. TILAK MAHARASHTRA UNIVERSITY, PUNE (A) Nature of businesses: (B) Size of business unit: (C) Seasonal variation: (D) Time consumed in manufacture: (E) Turnover of circulating capital: (F) Labour intensive versus capital intensive industries: (G) Need to stockpile raw material and finished goods: (H) Terms of purchase and sale: (I) Conversion of current asset into cash. (J) Growth and extension of business: (K) Business cycle fluctuation: (L) Profit margin and profit appropriation: (M) Price level changes: (N) Dividend policies: (O) Close coordination between production and distribution policy: (P) An absence of specialization in the distribution of products: (Q) If the means of transporting and communication are less developed: (R) Hazards in a particular business also decide the magnitude of working capital required. The main source of working capital financing, namely trade credit, bank credit, RBI framework/regulation of bank credit/finance/advances, factoring and commercial papers. METHODS OF ESTIMATING WORKING CAPITAL REQUIREMENT Operating cycle method CASH ACCOUNTS RECEIVABLE PURCHASE OF RAW MATERIAL INVENTORY FINISHED GOODS WORKING CAPITAL MANAGEMENT- MANOJ S.HULE. 28
  29. 29. TILAK MAHARASHTRA UNIVERSITY, PUNE W.I.P OPERATING CYCLE OF WORKING CAPITAL Percent of sales method: Some of the types of working capital report are: Inventory report Cash report Receivables report WORKING CAPITAL RATIO Working capital ratios indicate the ability of a business concern in meeting its current obligation as well as its efficiency in managing the current asset in the generation of sales. These ratios are applied to evaluate the efficiency with which the firm manages and make use of its current assets. The fallowing three categories of ratio are used for efficient management of working capital (a) efficiency ratios (b) Liquidity ratios (c) Structural health ratios. Efficiency ratio: This ratio is computed by dividing the working capital by sale. This ratio helps to measure the efficiency of utilization of networking capital. It signifies for an amount of sale a relative amount of working capital is needed. If any increase in sale is contemplated, working capital should be adequate and thus this ratio is useful for maintaining adequate level of working capital. Inventory turnover ratio: This ratio indicate the effectiveness and efficiency of the inventory management .The formulae is as fallows INVENTORY TURNOVER RATIO = SALES / CURRENT ASSET This ratio shows how speedily the inventory is turned into accounts receivable through sales. The lower the inventory of sales ratio, the more efficiently the inventory is said to manage and vice versa. Current assets turnover ratio: This ratio formula is: CURRENT ASSET TURNOVER RATIO = SALES / CURRENT ASSETS This ratio indicates the efficiency with which the current asset turn into sales. The lower the current asset to sales ratio, it implies a more efficient use of funds. Thus, a high turnover rate indicates reduced lock up of funds in current assets. An analysis of this ratio over a period of time reflects working capital management of a firm. WORKING CAPITAL MANAGEMENT- MANOJ S.HULE. 29
  30. 30. TILAK MAHARASHTRA UNIVERSITY, PUNE Liquidity ratio: This ratio indicate the extend of soundness of the current financial position of an undertaking and the degree of safety provided to the creditors. The higher the current ratio, the larger amount of rupee available, per rupee for current liability, the more the firms ability to meet current obligation and the greater safety of funds of short term creditors. The liquidity ratio formulae is LIQUIDITY RATIO = CURRENT ASSET, LOANS, ADVANCES/ CURRENT LIABILITY Current assets are those assets, which can be converted into cash within an accounting year. Current liability and provisions are those liability that are payable within a year. A current ratio of 2: 1 indicates a highly solvent position. Banks consider a current ratio of 1: 3: 1 as minimum acceptable level for providing working capital finance. The constituents of the current asset are as important as current asset themselves for evaluation of companies solvency position. Quick ratio: This ratio is a more refined tool to measure the liquidity of an organization. It is a better test of financial strength than the current ratio, because it excludes very slow moving inventories and the item of current asset, which cannot be converted into cash easily. This ratio shows the extend of cushion of protection provided from the quick assets to the current creditors. A quick ratio of 1: 1 is usually considered satisfactorily through it is again a rule of the thumb only. Structural health ratio: This ratio explains the relationship between current asset and total investment in current asset. A business enterprise should use its current asset effectively and economically because it is out of the management of these assets that profits accrue. A business will end up in losses if there is any lacuna in managing assets to the advantage of business. Investment in fixed assets being inelastic in nature there is no elbowroom to make an amendment in this sphere and its impact on profitability remains minimal. This structural ratio can be indicated as S.H.R = NET ASSETS / CURRENT ASSET An analysis of current assets composition enable one to examine in which components the working capital funds are locked up. Large tie up of funds in inventories effect profitability of the business adversely owing to carry over cost .in addition losses are likely to occur by the way of depreciation, decay, obsolesce, evaporation and so on. Receivable constitute another component of current assets If the major portion of current assets are made of cash alone the profitability will be decreased because cash is a non earning asset. If the portion of cash balance is excessive then it can be said that management is not efficient to employ surplus cash. Debtor turnover ratio: This ratio shows the extend of trade credit granted and the efficiency in the collection of debts and thus it is an indicative of trade credit management. The lower the debtor to sale ratio the better the trade credit management and better the quality of debtors. The lower debtor means prompt WORKING CAPITAL MANAGEMENT- MANOJ S.HULE. 30
  31. 31. TILAK MAHARASHTRA UNIVERSITY, PUNE payment by customers. An excessive long collection period on the other hand indicates a very liberal ineffective inefficient credit and collection policy. DEBTOR TURNOVER RATIO = SALES / DEBTORS Average collection period measures how long it takes to collect amounts from debtors. The actual collection period can be compared with the stated credit terms of the company. If it is longer than those terms, this indicate some insufficiency in the procedure of collecting debts Bad debts to sale ratio: This ratio indicates the efficiency of the controlled procedure of the company. The actual ratio is compared with the target of norms to decide whether or not it is acceptable. Creditor turnover period: The measurement of creditor turnover period shows the average time taken to pay for goods and service by the company. In general the longer the credit period achieved the better, because delay in payments means that the operation of the company is financed interest free by suppliers funds. But there will be point beyond which if they are operating in a sellers market, may harm the company. If too long a period is taken to pay creditors, the credit rating of the company may suffer, thereby making it more difficult to obtain supplier in future. CREDIT TURNOVER PERIOD = CREDITORS * 365 / PURCHASES WORKING CAPITAL LEVERAGE One of the important objectives of working capital management is by maintaining the optimum level of investment in current asset and by reducing the current liability .The company can minimize the investment in working capital and thereby improve the return of capital employed. The term working capital leverages refer to the impact of level of working capital on company’s profitability. The working capital management should improve the productivity of investment and current asset and ultimately it will increase the return on capital employed. Higher level of investment in current asset than is required means increase in the cost of interest charged on short term loans and working capital finance raised from banks and will resulting the lover return on capital employed and vice versa. Working capital leverages measures the responsiveness of ROCE for changes in current asset. It is measured by applying the fallowing formulae Working capital leverages = C.A / T.A - ‫טּ‬C.A Where: C.A = CURRENT ASSET T.A = TOTAL ASSETS (net fixed asset = current asset ) ‫טּ‬C.A = CHANGE IN CURRENT ASSET WORKING CAPITAL MANAGEMENT- MANOJ S.HULE. 31
  32. 32. TILAK MAHARASHTRA UNIVERSITY, PUNE OVERTRADING Overtrading arises when a business expands beyond the level of funds available. Overtrading an attempt to finance a certain volume of production and sales with inadequate working capital .If the company does not have enough funds of its own to finance stock and debtors it is forced, if it wish to expand, to borrow from creditors and from banks on overdraft sooner or later and such expansion financed completely by funds of others, will lead to a chronic imbalance in the working capital ratio. Expansion is advantageous so long as the business has funds available to finance stock and debtors involved. Overtrading begins at a point where the business relies on extra trade credit and increased turnover are financed by taking longer period of credit from suppliers and/or negotiating an extension of overdraft limits with the banks. Over dependence on outside finance is a sign of weakness, unless the expansion is curtailed, suppliers may refuse credit beyond certain limit, and the banks may call for the reduction in overdrafts. If this happens the business may be insolvent in that it does not have sufficient liquid resource to pay for current operation or to repay current liability until customers pay for sale made on credit terms, or unless the stock is sold for a loss for immediate cash payments. Using the fallowing ratios it will be possible to analyze the situation properly 1. Working capital = current asset: current liability 2. Acid test = quick asset: current liability 3. Stock turnover = stock: cost of sale 4. Debtor’s turnover = debtors: credit purchases 5. The object of using these ratios is to detect a disorientation of liquidity position of a firm and increase reliance upon trade creditors and overdraft facilities. OVERCAPITALIZATION AND UNDER CAPITALIZATION OF WORKING CAPITAL If there are excessive stock, debtors and cash and very few creditors, there will be an over investment in current asset. The inefficiency of managing working capital will cause this excessive working capital resulting in lower returns in working capital employed. and long-term funds will be unnecessarily tied up WORKING CAPITAL MANAGEMENT- MANOJ S.HULE. 32
  33. 33. TILAK MAHARASHTRA UNIVERSITY, PUNE when they could be invested to earn profit. This situation is known as overcapitalization of working capital. Under capitalization is a situation where a company does not have funds sufficient to run the normal operation smoothly. This may happen, due to inefficient working capital or diversion of working capital funds to finance capital items. If the company faces the situation of undrecapitalization, then it will face difficulty in meeting current obligation, procurement of raw material, meeting day- to-day running expense etc. The result will ultimately be reduced profitability, and reduced turnover. The finance manager must take immediate and proper step to overcome the situation by making arrangements for sufficient working capital. For this purpose he should prepare the realistic cash flow and fund flow statement of the company. STRATEGIES IN WORKING CAPITAL MANAGEMENT At present more finance option are available to the finance manager to see the operation of his firm go smoothly. Depending on the risks of business strategies is evolved to manage the working capital. Conservative working capital strategy: A conservative strategy suggests carrying high levels of current asset in relation to sales. Surplus current asset enable the firm to absorb sudden variation in sales, production plans, and procurement time without destructing production plans. Additionally the higher liquidity level reduces the risk of insolvency. But lower risk translates into lower returns. Large investment in current asset lead to higher interest and carrying cost and encouragement for efficiency. But conservative policy will enable the firm to absorb day o day risk. It assures continuous flow of operation and illuminates worry about recurring obligation. Under this strategy, long term financing covers more than the total requirement of capital. The excess cash is invested in short- term marketable securities and in need these securities are sold off in the market to meet the urgent requirement of working capital. Aggressive working capital strategy: Under this approach current asset are maintained just to meet the current liability without keeping cushions for the variation in working capital needs. The companies working capital is financed by long-term source of capital and seasonal variation are met through short-term borrowing. Adoption of this strategy will minimize the investment in net working capital and ultimately it lowers the cost financing working capital needs. The main drawback of this strategy is that it necessitates frequent financing and also increase, as the firm is variable to sudden shocks. WORKING CAPITAL MANAGEMENT- MANOJ S.HULE. 33
  34. 34. TILAK MAHARASHTRA UNIVERSITY, PUNE A conservative current asset financing strategy would go for more long-term finance, which reduces the risk of uncertainty associated with frequent refinancing. The price of this strategy is higher financing cost since long-term rates will normally exceed short-term rates. But when aggressive strategy is adopted, some time the firm runs into mismatches and defaults. It is a cardinal principle of corporate finance that long term source and short-term assets should finance long term asset by a mix of long and short-term source. Efficient working capital management techniques are those that compressed operating cycle. The length of operating cycle is equal to the sum of the length of the inventory period and the receivable period. Just in time inventory management techniques reduce carrying cost by slashing the time that goods are parked as inventories. To shorten the receivables period without necessary reducing the credit period, corporate can offer trade discount for prompt payment.

ITC has a diversified presence in Cigarettes, Hotels, Paperboards and Speciality Papers, Packaging, Agri-Business, Packaged Foods and Confectionery, Information Technology, Branded Apparel, Personal Care, Stationery, Safety Matches and other FMCG products. While ITC is an outstanding market leader in its traditional businesses of Cigaretters, Hotels, Paperboards, Packaging and Agri- Exports, it is rapidly gaining market share even in its nascent businesses of Packaged Foods and Confectionery, Branded Apparel, Personal Care and Stationery. As one of India's most valuable and respected corporations, ITC is widely perceived to be dedicatedly nation-oriented. Chairman Y C Deveshwar calls this source of inspiration "a commitment beyond the market". In his own words: "ITC believes that its aspiration to Crete enduring value for the nation provides the motive force to sustain growing shareholder value. ITC practices this philosophy by not only driving each of its businesses towards international competitiveness but by also consciously contributing to enhancing the competitiveness of the larger value chain of which it is a part." ITC's diversified status originates from its corporate strategy aimed at creating multiple drivers of growth anchored on its time-tested crore competencies: unmatched distribution reach, superior brand-building capabilities, effective supply chain management and acknowledged service skills in hoteliering. Over time, the strategic forays into new businesses are expected to garner a significant share of these emerging high-growth markets in India. WORKING CAPITAL MANAGEMENT- MANOJ S.HULE. 62
