Increase your company's value through professional Working Capital Management The fundamental principles of Working Capital are clear: reduce inventory and receivables whilst increasing payables balances. But many companies find it hard to optimise working capital. Our specialists provide you with dedicated expert resources to help drive cross-functional working capital improvements, keeping you free to deal with the everyday challenges of running a business.
WCM initiatives release working capital and increase liquidity that can be used for strategic investments or the reduction of debt. In addition, profitability is enhanced due to an efficiency improvement within the processes and a reduction in cost of capital. Considering all of these effects, improving working capital inevitably leads to a sustainable increase on Economic Profit / ROCE and therefore to a higher corporate value.
