Exhibit 1 Cash Conversion Cycle Formula CCC = Days Inventory Outstanding + Days Receivables Outstanding - Days Payables Outstanding This equation can be expanded as follows: CCC = [Average Inventory / (Cost of Goods Sold / 365)] + [Average Accounts Receivable / (Net Sales / 365)] - [Average Accounts Payable / (Cost of Goods Sold / 365)]
The CCC has three components: days sales outstanding (DSO), days inventory outstanding (DIO) and days payables outstanding (DPO).
Conversely, $140 million also represents less than four days of accounts receivable or inventory meaning a slight up-tick in CCC days can turn cash flow negative quite quickly (days sales outstanding were 36, days inventory outstanding were 48 on average in fiscal 2010).
The CFO Magazine/REL Consultancy survey takes a sector-based approach to rank companies in four categories--Days Sales Outstanding (DSO), Days Payable Outstanding (DPO), Days Inventory Outstanding (DIO) and Days Working Capital (DWC).
