Hi Everyone,

Broad question:

Net Working Capital calculations (especially because of A/R) tends to be a sticky subject with trucking companies. My brother and I own/operate a small flat-bed carrier and brokerage in NC, and we are always looking at small regional bolt-ons. I was curious if anyone has a best-practice or recommendation on how to easily address the NWC calculation or speak through A/R with a prospective seller?

CapEx also tends to be a sore subject, as they believe it shouldn't be a consideration in ding'ing cash flow, and that the value of their assets (trucks) should be separate from the value of the business, though the business and cash flow requires the assets. Any thoughts, advice, etc. is much appreciated.

Thanks - Andrew
