Working Capital is a measure of a company's short term liquidity or its ability to cover short term liabilities. It is defined as the difference between a company's current assets and current liabilities.

It is a way corporations use stock options to reward employees.

Crane Co's stock based compensation for the three months ended in Jun. 2015 was $5 Mil.

7. Cash Flow from Others:
