Abstract (Swedish)
Uppsatsen syfte är att undersöka huruvida en minskning av working capital kan påverka lönsamheten och om det i så fall skulle kunna användas som en strategi för företagsledningar. Ett sekundärt syfte är att undersöka om finanskrisen har påverkat arbetet med att minska working capital. Uppsatsen exemplifierar problemet genom att undersöka en hårt konkurrensutsatt bransch, hemelektronikbranschen i Sverige.
