Working capital

• Current assets, which represent the portion of investment that circulates from one form to another in the ordinary conduct of business.

• Current assets minus current liabilities

• Also known as net working capital. It is calculated by subtracting current liabilities from current assets. If a company's current assets do not exceed its current liabilities, then it may be unable to meet its short-term liabilities with its current assets (such as cash, accounts receivable, and inventory).

• Defined as the difference in current assets and current liabilities (excluding short-term debt). Current assets may or may not include cash and cash equivalents, depending on the company.
