1.0 INTRODUCTION

1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

          The term working capital originated with the old iankee peddlers, who would load up his wagon with goods and then go off on his route t o peddle his wares.  The merchandise was called working capital because it was what he actually sold, or turn over” to produce his projects. He generally owned  the rvagon around horse, so that they were financed with ‘equity’ capital, but he borrowed  the funds to buy the merchandise these borrowings were working capital loans, and they had to be repaid after each trip  to demonstrate to the bank that the credit was sound. If the peddler was able to repay the loan, then the bank would make another loan.

          From this, working capital is conceptualized as  the provision of sufficient current assets that will be able to sustain the normal process of acquisition of raw materials and supplies, turning out the finished product and collection of payments.

          Working capital management deals with the determination of the ratios at which to hold the current assets  and current liabilities in the overall valuation of the firun. Working capital broadly refers to current assets and current liabilities. Net working capital is the deduction of current liabilities from  the current assets.

          Therefore, working capital is one of the most strategic asset holdings of firms.  It is a circulating capital which flows and changes form as the firm pursues its goals  and performs,  its operation it is a financial lubricant or life stream for the firm  and maintains constant process  of circulation throughout firm.

          Current assets as the gross working capital, therefore, represent those assets that can be converted into cash within an accounting period. Current assets are constantly varying in the life of a firm i.e it changes from cash to inventions, to receivable and  then back to cash.  If a lot of funds are field down in the  form  of current assets, it will constitute a problem to the  management as there may  be little or no fund  for the other operational sectors.

          Moreover, some are facing the problem of stagnation and sluggish rate of return on investment. This study is also aiming at finding whether there is more availability of working capital to undertake profitable investments.
