Volatility in credit markets and rising interest rates are a couple variables that highlight the need for companies to effectively manage cash and working capital. Today more than ever, it’s imperative to manage accounts-receivable collections, optimization of payable discounts and the overall cash-conversion cycle. Poor working capital management drives operating inefficiencies, reduces profitability and jeopardizes future competitiveness and enterprise viability.

Brooks International has decades of experience in helping clients effectively manage operating liquidity.

By unlocking the cash potential that drives borrowing and investment decision-making, clients manage credit costs better, find internal sources of funding for the execution of strategic initiatives – helping to maintain strong balance sheets and earnings for shareholder value.

Our client engagements serve to unlock millions of dollars in working capital and cash flow, dramatically improving costs of capital and providing the leverage to strategically transform their businesses. Examples include:

  • Reducing days’ receivables by more than 50%
  • Reducing days’ inventory by more than 70%
