Is increase in working capital lucrative to valuations?


This is a question recently asked to one of my students who was interviewing for the role of an M&A analyst for a leading mid-market advisory company in London with a focus on IPO’s.


Increase in working capital is a cash outflow and increases the capital required to run the day to day operations of the company. An increase in working capital is a negative for the valuations of the company. Management of public listed companies and Private Equity funds focus on reducing working capital investments of a company as it frees up capital that can be used to pay back equity holders – thus increasing return for investors.



Despite the onset of Covid-19 and its accompanying challenges, our program registered a 90% placement rate for students on our 8 weeks training programs. Our students secure jobs at marquee investment banks such as Goldman Sachs, Credit Suisse, Morgan Stanley, Citi Bank and Deutsche Bank among others.
