Weekly KPI: CASH CONVERSION CYCLE (CCC)

Reading Time:

WHAT IS IT?

Measures the time (in days) it takes for a company to convert its investments in inventory and other resources into cash flows from sales.


WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?

CCC indicates how efficiently a company is using short-term assets and liabilities to generate and redeploy cash, offering a glimpse into the company’s financial health with respect to cash flow management. The shorter the cycle, the less time capital is tied up in the business process.


HOW DO YOU CALCULATE IT?

Days Inventory Outstanding + Days Sales Outstanding – Days Payable Outstanding
