CFA Practice Question

True or False?

If a company averages 85 days to sell a machine and it averages 45 days to collect the receivable for the machine, the operating cycle is about 40 days.
Correct Answer: False

An average of 85 days to sell the product and 45 days to collect the account receivable results in an operating cycle of approximately 130 days (85 days + 45 days = 130 days).

chenyx operating cycle=inventory period + collection period
cash conversion cycle= operating cycle - payment period
cleopatraliao chenyx: r u sure what ur sayin is correct?
thekobe cleo that is correct, cash conversion= days receivables + days inventory - days payable
johntan1979 General consensus:
strivealex Operating Cycle is different from CCC
Operating Cycle = DOS + DOI
CCC = DOS + DOI - No. of days Payable

Inaganti6 Johntan your lack of veracity is quite surprising. you've been a spectacular commentator throughout and I kept thinking to myself this guy Johntan is going to ace this exam.

CCC IS NOT OC. OC - A/C Payables Period = CCC.
