Novocabos - 2016: Management of Working Capital
Novocabos is the Brazilian subsidiary of a multinational in the automotive components sector, an extremely competitive sector. During the economic boom years (2006-13) sales grew to 100 million Brazilian reais (R$). Novocabos made heavy capex investments and also repurchased part of the shares from the former owner. In 2014-16 the economic crisis hit the sector hard and led Novocabos into financial problems, which need a solution.
