1.0      INTRODUCTION

1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

It is surprising that most of the companies go bankrupt and collapse not because they are not profitable but because their inability to meet their mature obligations. This is usually due to the inefficient management of their working capital, particularly in manufacturing companies. Therefore, the survival of a company depends largely on the availability of adequate working capital as well as the proper management of each of its component to have optimality.

Working Capital management involves the relationship between a firms short term assets and its short term liabilities. The basic goal of the working capital is to ensure that a firm is able to continue its operation and has sufficient ability to satisfy both maturing short term debts and upcoming operational expenses. This is done so as to avoid two ugly situations of our capitalization and under capitalization.

Over capitalization according to olowe (2007) is an inefficient working capital management that results in excessive stocks, debtors and cash with very few creditors. The implication of this is that, it impairs te firm’s profitability as idle investment earns nothing. The idle investment could have been invested in other profitable investment like marketable securities.

Under capitalization on the other hand occurs if a firm is trying to support large volume of production with little long term capital at its disposal.
