A RECORDING OF THIS WEBINAR WILL BE MADE AVAILABLE TO IBPA MEMBERS ON OCTOBER 20th, 2016. PLEASE CHECK BACK FOR DETAILS.


About the Program:

In 60 minutes, publishers will learn how to use simple financial ratios to help them understand and improve their companies:

Financial ratios help Publishers make more informed decisions about:

  • Using offset printing and carrying inventory, versus paying higher unit prices and using print-on-demand
  • Determining the correct balance between cost of sales and book inventory to maximize cash flow
  • When to write off obsolete inventory and use print-on-demand instead
  • Whether the gross margin percent is covering the operating costs of the Publishing House

Publishers will see how simple ratio analysis is a business management tool that can have positive effects on the operations and performance of all aspects of their business.
