Welcome to this Learning Video Program on Cash flow Management and Capital Productivity by Mani Padmanabhan, Finance Leader & Shared CFO, with 3 decades of experience ranging from Corporates to working with Startups.
Business Needs: Businesses, be they Startups or SMEs, invariably need to build at the early stage using limited funds. Revenues are low at early stage while operating costs are fixed or growing. Free cash for driving business growth is therefore limited and needs to be optimised.
At the same time, the business needs to be quickly brought to a stage where external equity investment or loans can be attracted.
Investor Needs: Investors and lenders both will look at the business from a point of view of its current and planned Capital Productivity; which is their key measure to determine that their funds are being productively utilized to provide them the expected returns.
A robust cash management system ensures availability of sufficient liquidity to meet the business requirements whilst provisioning adequate cash for sustainable value creation through business growth and expansion.
Early Stage businesses, therefore, need to look at cash flow and capital productivity as supreme measures.
