    3. Working Capital Management Case Study
    Submit a 700-1,400-word paper including the Microsoft® Excel® worksheet, Xtreme Toys® from your page, to complete the following Case Study:
    Xtreme Toys® is a small manufacturing company in Southern California. Management is concerned because as their sales have grown, their cash flow has shrunk. Management doesn't understand how this could happen and has approached your team to find a solution for this dilemma.
    a. Part A:
    Calculate the following:
    1) Inventory conversion period
    2) Payables deferral period
    3) Receivables conversion period
    4) Operating cycle
    5) Cash conversion cycle (cash gap)
    If the company's cost of funds is 8%, what is the annual cost of financing the cash gap?
    b. Part B:
    Explain to Xtreme Toys® management how rising sales could cause a decrease in the company's cash position and provide three specific recommendations to management on ways to reduce the cash gap.
    c. Part C:
    Assume your recommendations have now resulted in Xtreme Toys® being able to reduce their cash gap by 20 days. Calculate the amount of additional cash that Xtreme Toy® will now have on hand and the savings on the annual cost of financing the cash gap at 8%.
