It is important to understand that these publicly listed companies are protecting their market capitalisation and maximise shareholder return. Any analyst would know the companies capability to achieve this is driven from Free Cash Flow. First port of call for this cash is the supply chain as it is the cheapest. Long payment terms are a systemic within oligopolised economies like ours, hence the rise of innovative factoring and supply chain finance solutions to help improve liquidity throughout the supply chain
