You work for a apparel company in Tokyo. Your CFO at the firm asks you to compute the companyâ€™s cash conversion cycle (CCC). Looking at the financial statements, you see that the average inventory for the year was JPY300,000, accounts receivable were JPY200,000, and accounts payable were JPY400,000. You also see that the company had sales of JPY1,000,000 and that cost of goods sold was JPY500,000.
Interpret your company's cash conversion cycle. What does the CCC number mean! Is it good for the company? If not, what improvements/recommendations can you give?
