Write the First Review

Often managers, especially entrepreneurs, focus excessively on the income statement and, in the process, ignore the balance sheet and statement of cash flows. Acting as the CEO of a small company called Sunflower Nutraceuticals, this single-player simulation lets you practice investing in growth and cash-flow improvement opportunities in three phases over 10 simulated years. Each opportunity has a unique financial profile and you must analyze effects on working capital. Examples of opportunities include taking on new customers, capitalizing on supplier discounts, and reducing inventory. You must understand how the income statement, balance sheet, and statement of cash flows are interconnected and consider the possible effects of each opportunity on the firm's financial position. The company operates on thin margins with a constrained cash position and limited available credit. You must optimize use of "internal" and external credit as you balance the desire for growth with the need for maintaining liquidity
