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.

If a company receives payments from its customers slower, its account receivables will rise, and its cash position will grow more slowly (or even shrink).

TE Connectivity Ltd's cash flow from others for the three months ended in Dec. 2013 was $34 Mil.
