Short-Term Financial Management
Written to support courses that focus on short-term financial management, working capital, and treasury management, the newly revised fifth edition of Short-Term Financial Management provides a comprehensive overview of vital topics within the discipline of corporate finance.
The opening chapter provides a review of time value of money applied to short-term cash flows, as well as the basics of financial statement analysis, highlighting the calculation of operating cash flow. This edition emphasizes benchmarking the cash conversion cycle and the cycle’s connection to firm value. It features a revised discussion of bank relationship management and expansion of content on account analysis statements. There is new material on float neutrality and the application of statistical tools through the use of Excel. The chapters on short-term investing and borrowing are revised to emphasize the calculation and interpretation of yields and borrowing costs.
Throughout, “Focus on Practice” sections introduce students to real-world articles and case studies. New “Test Your Understanding” boxes reinforce critical topics from select chapters, and enhanced end-of-chapter problems encourage critical thinking.
Introducing many of the topics covered by the Certified Treasury Professional (CTP) certification, Short-Term Financial Management is suitable for courses in intermediate financial management and advanced corporate finance.
