Global Finance to Publish First-Ever Global Corporate Cash Survey

Companies Ranked by Cash on Balance Sheet, Global Finance Cash 25 Announced

 

NEW YORK, August 5, 2013 – In its September 2013 issue, Global Finance will publish the 2013 Global Corporate Cash Survey, as part of the Annual Treasury & Cash Management Supplement, eBook and Mobile App. This exclusive report will feature an in-depth exploration of the latest trends in corporate cash management, based on data from 70,000 listed public companies worldwide.

 

Companies will be ranked globally and by region, based on the cash on their balance sheet. They will be evaluated within their industries and overall by their returns on cash invested in the business through capital investment and M&A, kept on the balance sheet, and returned to investors. The results will be analyzed to report on trends in how companies are managing cash and will identify best practices.

 

“This is the first time a survey such as this has been done on a global scale,” says Joseph Giarraputo, publisher and editorial director of Global Finance. “The findings will be of unique value to investors and the entire treasury and cash sector as well as the financial marketplace.”
