How Good Working Capital Management Can Boost Shareholder Value

Credit & Lending

Bankers are in an excellent position to use their knowledge about lending to serve as effective financial advisors to their borrowers.  Lenders have long known that expanding inventories to attract more customers and easing credit terms to entice their customers to buy the inventory can tie up cash flow as inventory turns more slowly and receivables take longer to collect.  Showing a borrower how a faster cash conversion cycle—cash to inventory to receivables back to cash—improves the borrower’s cash flow means the lender can also improve the odds of loan repayment.  The other beneficial result is that working capital management also boosts shareholder value.  This session will show bankers how to advise borrowers on the benefits of effective working capital management to operating cash flow and to shareholder value.

Who Should Attend: Credit Analysts, Credit Managers, Loan Review Officers, Work-Out Officers, Commercial Lenders, Credit Risk Managers, Chief Credit Officers, Senior Lenders, Senior Lending Officer, Bank Director, Chief Executive Officer, President, Board Chairman
