Assume a 365-day year. 3.1 what is Aztec products cash conversion(CCC)? 3.2 if Aztec could shorten its CCC by 5 days, would it be best to reduce the inventory holding period, reduce the receivable collection period or extend the accounts payable period? Why? 3.3 how should the firm manage its inventory, accounts receivable, and accounts payable in order to reduce the length of its cash conversion cycle?
Expert's answer

3.1 CCC = Days of Sales Outstanding + Days of Inventory Outstanding – Days of Payables Outstanding


CCC = 65 + 35 – 55 = 45

3.2 In this case, it would be better to extend the accounts payable period. It is because this is not only a way of motivating the company's employees, but it is also a manner of freeing up more of the firm's cash flow.

3.3 The company should reduce days sales outstanding and inventory outstanding and at the same time increasing the days of payable outstanding.
