Professor Almeida will talk about the reasons why companies should hold cash, and discuss some alternative ways in which companies can manage their liquidity. While cash is king for many companies, there are also significant costs of carrying cash specially when companies end up with more cash then what they truly need. We will talk about how to identify excessive cash holdings, and how to manage excess cash. In particular, we will discuss how companies can avoid value-destroying mistakes that they can incur when eliminating excess cash.
