Working capital improvement initiatives deliver a high ROI.

Our annual working capital (WC) report found that automotive suppliers reported a year-on-year deterioration in WC performance, with cash-to-cash (C2C) rising by 6% from its level in 2010.

Our report is based on a review of the WC performance of 40 of the largest automotive suppliers (by sales) headquartered in North America (18 companies), Europe (15) and Japan (7). Most of them are Tier 1 suppliers.

Take a closer look at our findings:

As industry leaders urgently reassess their strategies in the light of a rapidly shifting global automotive landscape, it is important that they continue to implement truly effective WC management strategies.

WC improvement initiatives deliver a high ROI. In addition to increased levels of cash, significant cost benefits may also arise from process optimization through reduced transactional and operational costs and from lower levels of bad and doubtful debts and inventory obsolescence.
