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.

1) Inventory conversion period
2) Payables deferral period
