A financial manager should take three key decisions such as financing decision, investment decision and dividend decision. Among these the most important decision is financing decision. Here financing and investment decision includes both long-term and short-term decision. The management of short term assets and liabilities refers to management of Working Capital (Khan, 2002).

In a narrow sense working capital is the difference between current assets and current liabilities of a firm. Working capital management is important part in firm financial management decision. An optimal working capital management is expected to contribute positively to the creation of firm shareholders value during the normal course of business. Firms try to keep an optimal level of working capital that maximizes their value (Deloof, 2003).

Working Capital Management includes maintaining optimum balance of working capital components: receivable, inventory and payables and using the cash efficiently for day-to-day operations. Optimization of working capital balance means minimizing the working capital requirement and realizing maximum possible revenues (Ganesan, 2007). The term profitability refers to the ability of a firm to earn profit. Profit is determined by matching revenue against cost associated with it (Salauddin, 2001)

However, the organizations can minimize risk and improve the overall performance by understanding the role and drivers of working capital management to maximize their profit. As a result, most successful businesses keep the working capital ratio as low as possible and keep cash circulating, to maximize profit.

Problem Statement

Working capital is an indicator for measuring the liquidity which is defined as adequacy of cash for doing firm’s obligations. Firm with proper situation of liquidity has enough cash for the payment of bills. On the other hand, companies with improper situation cannot pay their bills on the maturity date. One of the main purposes of any firm is maximize the profit. But, maintaining liquidity of the firm also is an important objective. The problem is that at the cost of liquidity can bring serious problems to firm.
