Abstract: Steel Authority of India Limited (SAIL), one of the world’s largest government-owned steel making companies and India’s largest, was incorporated on January 24, 1973. The Government of India held 75% of the stake in SAIL. The working capital management at SAIL was vital to ensure the firm’s liquidity and profitability as a large part of the assets was attached to its current assets. This case is designed to analyze the working capital management at SAIL in order to understand the current assets and current liabilities of a manufacturing firm vis-a-vis a non-manufacturing firm. The computation of the operating cycle and analysis of liquidity ratios provide an important basis for decision making.
