Working Capital – What you don’t know can sabotage your client’s transaction
Many business owners and advisors talk about working capital but how many truly understand what it is, how to calculate it and when the subject of it should be addressed in a business transition? All too often the parties get far down the road in the transaction only to find it should have been addressed sooner in the process or they may under (or over) estimate the requirements which can then sabotage a successful exit.
In this session we will learn about important considerations and approaches to working capital and review a case study that walks us through the calculations.
- What working capital is comprised of and why should it be a consideration in a transaction
- The factors that impact the calculation of working capital
- The various approaches to calculating working capital and how to determine which is best suited to the transaction at hand
