Go Beyond Working Capital
It is important to look beyond working capital initiatives and explore non-working capital areas, involving restructuring of the balance sheet and right-sizing the company’s operations. Such balance sheet restructuring measures might include sale and leaseback arrangements, asset sales programmes, and capital expenditure programme re-phasing or deferral.
Other opportunities might exist from a review of the tax accounts, including the timing of indirect tax payments or reclaims, or from a review of the business’s banking structures and facilities, including pooling structures and operation of overseas accounts.
The breadth of opportunities will depend on the business, but our experience shows that there will invariably be cash, and often significant amounts, trapped within the balance sheet
