Dolby Laboratories  (NYSE:DLB) Cash Conversion Cycle Explanation

Generally, the lower this number is, the better for the company. Although it should be combined with other metrics (such as ROE % and ROA %), it can be especially useful for comparing close competitors, because the company with the lowest CCC is often the one with better management.


Be Aware

CCC is most effective with retail-type companies, which have inventories that are sold to customers. Consulting businesses, software companies and insurance companies are all examples of companies for whom this metric is meaningless.

The CCC is one of several tools that can help you evaluate management, especially if it is calculated for several consecutive time periods and for several competitors. Decreasing or steady CCCs are good, while rising ones should motivate you to dig a bit deeper.
