The aim/purpose of this scientific inquiry is to empirically examine the impact of working capital management (WCM) [cash conversion cycle (CCC), number of days inventory (INV), number of days account receivable (AR), number of days account payable (AP)] and control variables [sales growth (GROW), size (SIZE), leverage (LEV), current ratio (CR) fixed financial assets to total assets (FFA)] on firm performance (FP) [ROA, Tobin’s Q (TQ)] in the context of an emerging economy, Ghana. The research used a dynamic panel System of Generalized Method of Moment (GMM) to test the hypotheses. Utilizing financial data extracted from final accounts of 36 listed companies, spanning 2010-2019, the study examined WCM-performance-nexuses by following the methodologies of researchers/scholars in extant literature. Findings/Results indicates that, whilst INV, AR, LEV demonstrated negative/inverse/indirect associations with FP; AP, GROW, SIZE, CR, FFA depicted positive/direct associations with FP. CCC however, exhibited a quadratic concave relationship with ROA.

This paper is an attempt to investigate the effect of working capital management, measured by (Current Ratio, Quick Ratio and Liquidity)on dependent variables (Return on Assets, Return on Equity and Earning Assets (Asset Quality) of insurance firms in Egypt, the study sample is 49% from total insurance firms working of the insurance market in Egypt in 1999- 2019.A structural equation modelling was selected to construct of the model of this study, The evidences show that There is a positive significant effect on construct of the independent variables, current ratio (x1), quick ratio (x2), and liquidity (x3) on construct of the dependent variables in terms of Return on Equity (Y1), at a probability level less than (0.001). This validates the first hypothesis; the independent variables Current Ratio(x1), Quick Ratio(x2), and Liquidity(x3) have a significant effect on the dependent variables Return on Equity (Y1), There is a positive significant effect on the construct of the independent variables, Current Ratio (x1), Quick Ratio (x2), and Liquidity (x3) on the construct of the dependent variables in terms of Earning Assets (Asset Quality) (Y3), probability level less than (0.001). This validates of the third hypothesis; the independent variables in terms of Current Ratio (x1), Quick Ratio (x2), and Liquidity (x3) have a significant effect on (Earning Assets) Asset Quality (Y3).

Extant empirical studies have predominantly focused on the nexus between working capital management (WCM) and corporate profitability. While there is a dearth of literature on the nexus between WCM and a firm’s risk, the present study examines Pakistani-listed firms coming from 12 diverse industrial segments to observe this association for a time span of ten years (2005–2014). To ensure robustness, we employed a System Generalized Method of Moments (SGMM) regression estimation to investigate the influence of WCM on the operational and market risk for firms. Empirical testing revealed that higher working capital levels were associated with lower volatility in firms’ stock price, which shows that shareholders prefer a conservative working capital policy. Moreover, firms with better cash positions were subject to lesser stock market volatility. In contrast, excess working capital and a larger net trade cycle were associated with increased volatility in the operating income. Besides, firms with lower working capital levels relative to their respective industry experienced fewer fluctuations in their operating profits. Our findings assert that short-term financial management has important ramifications for firms’ operating and market fundamentals. Practical implications are discussed for corporate managers and relevant stakeholders.

This study attempts to explore how working capital decision, that is, aggressive investment and finance decision and efficiency of the working capital management (WCM) contribute to the profitability operationalised by gross operating profit (GOP) and return on assets of listed manufacturing firms in Bangladesh. To investigate this relationship, the study has taken into consideration of 468 sample observations from 108 listed firms covering the year from 2013 to 2017. This study finds that aggressive investment and finance decision significantly contribute to the profitability of the firm. Besides, the efficiency of WCM has significant impact on the profitability. In addition, the constructs of efficiency of WCM—that is, days in inventory outstanding, days in sales outstanding—has significant negative impact on the profitability of the firm. Unfortunately, this study finds no significant impact of days in payables outstanding on firm’s profitability.

This study aims to determine how the influence of working capital management and leverage on firm value with profitability as a moderating variable. The research method used is quantitative data method. 1) Working Capital Management variable has a positive and significant effect on Firm Value. 2) Leverage variable has no significant effect on firm value. 3) Working Capital Management and Leverage variables have no simultaneous significant effect on Firm Value. 4)Profitability variable is a moderator variable that affects the relationship between Working Capital Management and Firm Value. 5) Profitability variable is not a moderator variable that can moderate the relationship between Leverage and Firm Value.Company value can be used as the basis for making investment decisions because this aspect measures the ability of the company's assets to generate a return on investment made in the company's asset instruments.
