From the Paper:

"Another important element of the financial position of the company is the cash flow of the company. Indeed the Cash Conversional Cycle was computed in section 1.2 of this paper to outline such area. The ratios express the length of time, in days, which a firm takes to convert the resource inputs into cash flow. A steady decrease in this matrix is noted over the three years examined from 271 days to 183 days. This is a positive element for the liquidity of the organization because management is more effective in translating the revenue transactions into cash."
