Discussion Question:

Working capital management is a crucial task for the companies to maintain short term liquidity of their business. It includes management of all constituents of working capital and ignorance of any element can cause serious liquidity issues. Changes in one of these elements affect the overall working capital of the company. Cargo Intel has to pay Rs. 250,000 to its creditors without sacrificing the liquidity. Company also aims to make payment to creditors without increasing the current liabilities. Among various measures of liquidity ratio; management has decided to use “Quick Ratio” as a measure of liquidity. Company has following two options to make payment to creditors:

Option 1. Using cash of Rs. 150,000 and selling marketable securities of Rs. 100,000 for the payment to creditors (NOTE: ignore profit or loss on sale of marketable securities)

Option 2. Taking short term loan of Rs. 220,000 and selling marketable securities of Rs. 30,000 for the payment to creditors (NOTE: ignore profit or loss on sale of marketable securities)

Following information has been extracted from financial statements of the company for the current year:





Fixed assets


Short term debt


Marketable securities


Account receivables








Long term loan


Machine and equipment


You are required to calculate:
  1. Quick ratio before using any option

option 1

Quick Ratio =1150000/835000=1.377

option 2

Quick Ratio =1370000/1055000=1.3

option 1 is feasible according to company objective because in option 2 ratio has declined that means the liquidity has also declined

apka yeh kesy a gya

correction is option 1 is feasible according to company objective because in option 2 ratio is less than in ratio 1
