CHAPTER ONE 

INTRODUCTION   

1.1  BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY 

Working capital management is particularly important for small firms. A small firm may minimize its investments in fixed assets by renting or leasing plant and equipment but there is no way it can avoid an investment in cash debtors and stocks. Therefore current assets are particularly significant for the financial manager of a small firm further because a small firm has relatively limited access to the long term capital market it must necessarily rely heavily on trade credit and short term bank loans both of which affect net working capital by increasing current liabilities. The relationship between sales growth and the need to finance current assets is close and direct. For example if the firms average collection period is 40 days and if it credit sales are N1000 a day, it will have an investment of N40, 000 in trade debtors. If sales rise to N2000 a day, the investment in trade debtors will rise to N80, 000. Sales increase produce similar immediate needs for additional stocks and perhaps for cash balances. All such needs must be financed and since they arise so quickly it is imperative that the financial manager keep himself aware of development in the working capital segments of the firm, of course continued sales increase will require additional long term assets which must also be financed. However fixed assets investments, while critically important to the firm in a strategic long term sense do not generally have the same urgency as do current asset investments. The research therefore focuses on the role of working capital management on organizational performance with a case appraisal of Nigeria bottling company plc. 

1.2  STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM 

The performance of an organization in terms of profit and large sales volume depends greatly on the effective management of the firm’s working capital. However studies reveals that when huge investment have been made on fixed asset as land, building plant and machinery little attention is made on the effective management of the working capital which is the firm’s investment in short term or current asset. Working capital management refers to all aspect of administration of both the current assets and current liabilities. The research problem therefore centers an appraising the role of working capital management on organizational performance with a case study of Nigerian bottling company plc.
