Example text

It is mainly the net total of the working capital items that determines how much capital the distributor needs to raise to finance its business. It’s a fine balancing act; too little and the distributor runs out of inventory (‘stock-outs’) or cannot pay its suppliers in time while waiting for payments from its customers; too much capital and the cost of the capital required drags down the profitability of the business. Profit is a very small number between two very big numbers Looking at the income statement on the left we can get a sense of just how tight the margins can be in some sectors of distribution.

It does not matter whether it is calculated for a year or for a day’s trading, so long as the sales and cost of sales are for the same period. One point to watch is that percentages can be used or interpreted in misleading ways because they convey no sense of the size of business done. For example, which is better: a gross margin of 12 per cent or one of 7 per cent? Well, if the 12 per cent margin was earned on product A with sales of $1,000 and the 7 per cent margin earned on product B with sales of $5,000, the distributor would have earned a gross profit (or ‘money margin’) of only $120 on product A but $350 on product B.

Suppliers can have a range of products requiring distribution that can range in number from a few tens of SKUs up to many thousands. Typically the sales volumes of these products are subject to Pareto’s law, ie 20 per cent of the SKUs account for 80 per cent of the revenues. For reasons of margin and customer service, the supplier expects the distributor to carry the full range, or a significant proportion of it, to ensure supply fulfilment. Contracts may specify the inventory holding requirements of each class of product, or there may be a fee or incentive for stocking a proportion of the range.
