    2 : 2 Learning objectives Discuss working capital management Identify the effect of seasonality on monthly cash flows Explain the purpose of long-term financial planning Use the percent of sales method to construct pro-forma financial statements Identify spontaneous assets and liabilities, internally generated funds and financing decision variables Compute ‘Outside (External) Funds Needed’
    3 : 3 Responsibilities of the Financial Manager 1. Managing the working capital 2. Estimating the seasonal fund needs 3. Long-term financial planning: forecasting long-term fund requirements Financial Manager
    4 : 4 Working Capital on the Balance Sheet
    5 : 5 Net Working Capital (NWC) Net Working Capital (NWC) represents the investment needed to maintain the cash, credit and inventory necessary for operations – varies over time Net Working Capital (NWC) = Current Assets - Current Liabilities Efficient management of current assets and current liabilities reduces the investment in NWC Related liquidity ratios:
    6 : 6 Working Capital - Cash 1. Determining minimum cash requirements, maintaining the checking account and managing the cash balance Related liquidity ratios: Related financial statement: Statement of Cash Flows (operating activities)
    7 : 7 Working Capital - Credit 2. Setting credit policy (for customers) and managing the collection of accounts receivable Related activity ratios: Book example 5.1-5.6 (page 135): Cost benefit analysis of a new credit policy
    8 : 8 Working Capital - Inventory 3. Establishing inventory target levels and managing inventory turnover Related activity ratios:
    9 : 9 Working Capital – ST Debt 4. Establishing and maintaining banking relations to ensure access to short-term (ST) funds Short term funds offset effects on cash flow (CF) volatility: Predictable / expected events: seasonality Surprise / unexpected events: accidents
    10 : 10 Seasonality and Cash Budgets Most firms experience seasonality in sales: Weather Holidays Seasonality in sales leads to cash flow problems whenever (cash balance + cash inflow) < cash outflow Financial managers must plan in advance and secure funds to cover shortfalls
    11 : 11 Working Capital - Credit 5. Negotiating and monitoring trade credit terms and managing supplier relationships Related activity ratios:
    12 : 12 Working Capital - Interest 6. Monitoring and evaluating operating expenses, interest and taxes, and maintaining efficient payment patterns Related debt utilization ratios:
    13 : 13 Long-term financial planning Why do we need long-term financial planning? To make sure that funds are available to support firm’s growth!
    14 : 14 Long-term financial planning If the firms is not operating at full capacity ? find ways to use assets more efficiently If the firm is operating at full capacity (maximum efficiency - no idle assets) ? increase investment in assets to support LT growth: Current assets (cash, inventory, A/R ) Fixed assets (plant & equipment) ? The financial manager must find additional funding sources to support assets growth and decide: How much is needed? What sources of funding are available?
    15 : Three sources of funds 1. “Spontaneous” liabilities: Accounts payable Accruals 2. Internally generated funds: Addition to retained earnings 3. External funds (financing decision variables): Notes payable (credit line – short-term debt) Long-term debt (issue new bonds, bank loan) Common stock (issue new stock - equity) 15 These liabilities usually increase as the firm buys more inventory and incurs additional expenses
    16 : Pro-forma financial statements To determine if and how much outside (external) funding is needed, financial managers construct pro-forma financial statements We will use the percent of sales method to construct pro-forma financial statements Textbook example: pages 142-147 (Coffy’s coffee Shop) 16
    17 : 17 Percent of sales method Starting point: assume sales growth rate = g Step 1: Each assets account on the balance sheet grows at the same rate as sales (g) Note: we assume that the growth rates of gross fixed assets, accumulated depreciation and net fixed assets are also g Step 2: Each “spontaneous” liabilities account on the balance sheet grows at same rate as sales (g): 1. Accounts payable 2. Accruals
    18 : 18 Percent of sales method Step 3: (3a) Compute the expected net income for the projected period (3b) Find the addition to retained earnings: Addition to retained earnings = net income – dividends (3c) Use it to determine the retained earnings account on your pro-forma balance sheet: Retained earnings (t+1) = retained earnings (t) + Addition to retained earnings
    19 : 19 Percent of sales method Step 4: Copy all the financing decision variables from the previous statement (BS): Notes Payable Long Term Debt Common Stock Result: Total Assets ? Total Liabilities & Equity
    20 : 20 Outside funds needed Step 5: Holding the financing decision variables constant, calculate outside funds needed: Outside Funds Needed (OFN) = Total Assets – Total Liabilities & Equity Next Step: Determine financing sources 1. Increase Notes Payable (ST debt) 2. Borrow or issue new LT Debt 3. Issue new stock (equity)
    21 : 21 Outside funds needed - Formula An alternative way to calculate the OFN Outside Funds Needed = + Change in Total Assets - Change in Spontaneous Liabilities - Change in Retained Earnings
    22 : 22 Outside funds needed - Formula Change in Total Assets = (total assets on current BS) x g Change in Spontaneous Liabilities = (spontaneous liabilities on current BS) x g Change in Retained Earnings = +[(1+ g) x sales on current IS] x (net profit margin) - planned dividend payment Where g = sales growth rate
    23 : 23 Summary Three main responsibilities of the financial manager: Working capital management Monthly cash budgeting Long-term financial planning Determine Outside Funds Needed (OFN) to support long term growth Find funding sources
