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.

Frontline Ltd's stock based compensation for the three months ended in Dec. 2016 was NOK0 Mil.
