Die Bedeutung des Working Capitals auf den Erfolg eines Unternehmens ist seit vielen Jahren bekannt. So schrieb Lough bereits vor über 90 Jahren: Sufficient Working Capital must be provided in order to take care of the normal process of purchasing raw materials and supplies, turning out finished products, selling the products, and waiting for payments to be made. If the original estimates of Working Capital are insufficient, some emergency measures must be resorted to or the business will come to a dead stop.1
