Net-Net Working Capital

View All Terms
Benjamin Graham defines Net Net Working Capital (NNWC) as: Net Net Working Capital (NNWC) = Cash and short-term investments + (0.75 * accounts receivable) + (0.5 * inventory) - total liabilities - Preferred Stock - Minority Interest In calculating the Net Net Working Capital (NNWC), Benjamin Graham assumed that a company™s accounts receivable is only worth 75% its value, its inventory is only worth 50% of its value, but its liabilities have to be paid in full. This is a conservative way of estimating the company™s value.
