    15-4 How does SKI’s working capital  policy compare with its industry? SKI appears to have large amounts of  working capital given its level of sales. Working capital policy is reflected in  current ratio, turnover of cash and  securities, inventory turnover, and DSO. These ratios indicate SKI has large  amounts of working capital relative to its  level of sales.  SKI is either very  conservative or inefficient.

    15-5 Is SKI inefficient or just  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.
