Accounts Receivable is money owed to a business by customers and shown on its Balance Sheet as an asset.

Explanation

1. Accounts Receivable are created when a customer has received a product but has not yet paid for that product. Days Sales Outstanding measures of the average number of days that a company takes to collect revenue after a sale has been made. It is a financial ratio that illustrates how well a company's accounts receivables are being managed.

eBay Inc's Days Sales Outstanding for the quarter that ended in Jun. 2017 is calculated as:

 Days Sales Outstanding = Accounts Receivable / Revenue * Days in Period = 619 / 2328 * 91 = 24.26

2. In Ben Graham's calculation of liquidation value, eBay Inc's accounts receivable are only considered to be worth 75% of book value:

eBay Inc's liquidation value for the quarter that ended in Jun. 2017 is calculated as:

 Liquidation value = Cash And Cash Equivalents - Total Liabilities + (0.75 * Accounts Receivable) + (0.5 * Total Inventories) = 9017 - 16009 + 0.75 * 619 + 0.5 * 0 = -6,528

Be Aware

Net receivables tells us a great deal about the different competitors in the same industry. In competitive industries, some attempt to gain advantage by offering better credit terms, causing increase in sales and receivables.

If company consistently shows lower % Net receivables to gross sales than competitors, then it usually has some kind of competitive advantage which requires further digging.

Average Days Sales Outstanding is a good indicator for measuring a company's sales channel and customers. A company may book great revenue and earnings growth but never receive payment from their customers. This may force a write-off in the future and depress future earnings.
