Chapter 18, Balancing Act

Provide a 150 response to the question.

Working capital is defined as “Current assets minus current liabilities. How much in liquid assets a company has available to build its business” (, 2011). While there are several possible outcomes if a company failed to manage its working capital, the worst possible outcome would be the firm not having any funds to invest in equipment, physical plant, or new innovations. It is also possible a company may not have any cash assets to deal with unexpected financial shortfalls or problems if their working capital had been already used in some way.

In your Week 3 readings, you learn that having not enough working capital can reduce liquidity and render a firm unable to pay bills and expenses. However, having too much working capital reduces profitability of the firm. Obviously there needs to be a delicate balance when it comes to working capital.
