Cash Flow Cycles and Analysis Course Overview
In this Cash Flow Cycles and Analysis course, we look at how companies manage their cash flow. We will explore both the operating cash flow cycle and the investing cash flow cycle.
We use real-world examples to calculate a company’s working capital funding gap. Then we will go over important strategies companies can use to optimize their working capital accounts.
From there we will look at the longer-term investments such as sustaining or expansionary capital expenditures. We will assess the payback time on a project and look at the return on investment.
In the end, we'll combine what we learned and produce a cash flow statement to compare key metrics such as net income, EBITDA, cash flow from operations, and free cash flow.
Throughout the course, we'll be looking at things from both the lender's perspective and the borrower's perspective so you'll have a full picture as a complete credit analyst of how to forecast and optimize cash flow for a business.
