Executive Summary

This paper focuses on the effects of working capital management as measured by cash conversion cycle and net trade cycle on the firm performance for a sample of Turkish listed companies and searches for potential differences between the profitability effects of working capital management for the SMEs and for the bigger companies with an accompanying aim to examine whether net trade cycle can efficiently substitute for cash conversion cycle as a measure of working capital management. Both the cash conversion cycle and the net trade cycle improves firm performance in terms of both the operating income and the stock market return for SMEs where as for bigger companies a decrease in cash conversion cycle and net trade cycle is associated with enhanced profitability.
