industry. What is the expected incremental cash flow related to
working capital when the store is opened? **(Enter

Incremental cash flow | $ |

Answer #1

**Calculation of cash outfow related to working capital at
the the time of opening the store:**

Accounts receivables, accounts payables,cash and inventories are all form part of working capital.

Ratio of cash and cash-equivalents to revenue =0.03 ($720,000 * 0.03 =$21,600)

Ratio of receivables = 0.05 ($720,000 * 0.05 =$36,000)

Ratio of inventories= 0.10 ($720,000 * 0.10 =$72,000)

Ratio of payables to revenue=0.04 ($720,000 * 0.04 =$28,800)

=$720,000 * (.03 + 0.05 + 0.10 - 0.04)

=**$100,800**

(OR)

=$21,600 + $36,000 + $72,000 - $28,800

=**$100,800**
