    16-4 How does SKI’s working capital  policy compare with its industry? Working capital policy is reflected in the  current ratio, turnover of cash and  securities, inventory turnover, and days  sales outstanding. These ratios indicate SKI has large  amounts of working capital relative to its  level of sales.   SKI is either very conservative or  inefficient.

    16-5 Is SKI inefficient or conservative? A conservative (relaxed) policy may be  appropriate if it leads to greater  profitability. However, SKI is not as profitable as the  average firm in the industry.   This suggests the company has excessive  working capital.
