Case Detail :
Working capitalDo you have enough?
Lending institutions are scrutinizing an operations working capital status as
part of the lending decision. Now more than ever, its time to do a little
scrutinizing yourself. When I hit the road to speak, one of the most important
slides I regularly use highlights how lending criteria has changed since the
financial crisis. To illustrate that point, the slide includes a quote from Nick
Parsons, head of research with the National Australia Bank: So capitalism
has changedthe owner or the custodian of capital [i.e. lending institutions] is
much more careful about where they use that capital.
To that end, most readers have likely experienced increased scrutiny from
their lenders in this post-crisis world. And one of the key criteria that lenders
use to make decisions revolves around availability of working capital within
any operation; working capital being a function of current assets less current
liabilities. Its a measure of an operations buffer to meet its short-term
obligations, hence the importance to lenders.
Perhaps equally important, its a key indicator of cash reserve availability to
meet unexpected emergencies. Thus, it is an important component of risk
management to ensure business continuity within the operation without the
need to borrow additional funds. As an example, albeit simplified, a pickup is
typically a critical operational asset for most cow-calf operations. What if it
catches on fire and suddenly needs to be replaced, else the cows dont get
fed? After insurance provides some portion towards replacement, does the
operation have sufficient working capital to meet the remainder of the
obligation? This type of assessment has become more important to lenders
since the financial crisis.
This weeks graph highlights USDAs updated aggregate working capital
estimates in agriculture. Clearly, as last weeks illustration depicts, declining
revenue has taken a big hit out of working capital reserves for agriculture.
Working capital has declined nearly 50% the loss exceeds $82 billion in just
three years. Thats a concerning trend and if it continues, will clearly have
implications in the coming years.
What are you doing to maintain strong cash and working capital reserves
amidst declining revenue? What new expectations do you your lenders have
during the past several years and going into 2017? How will you adjust going
forward? Leave your thoughts in the comments section below.
