14 Common Stock Book Value vs. Market Value Book value is a backward looking measure. It tells us how much capital the firm has raised from shareholders in the past. It does not measure the value that shareholders place on those shares today. The market value of the firm is forward looking, it depends on the future dividends that shareholders expect to receive.

34 What is Factoring? Factoring is a transaction in which a business sells its accounts receivable, or invoices, to a third party commercial financial company, also known as a factor. This is done so that the business can receive cash more quickly than it would by waiting 30 to 60 days for a customer payment. Factoring is sometimes called accounts receivable financing.
35 Factoring The terms and nature of factoring can differ among various industries and financial services providers. Most factoring companies will purchase your invoices and advance you money within 24 hours. The advance rate can range from 80% to as much as 95% depending on the industry, your customers credit histories and other criteria. The factor also provides you back-office support. Once it collects from your customers, the factor pays you the reserve balances of the invoices, minus a fee for assuming the collection risk. Factoring is not a loan. No debt is assumed by factoring. The funds are unrestricted, providing a company more flexibility than with a traditional bank loan.
36 What are the Advantages of Factoring? There are several reasons why factoring is a valuable financial tool for many businesses. The key benefit is that factoring provides a quick boost to your cash flow. Many factoring companies provide cash on your accounts receivable within 24 hours. This can solve short-term cash flow issues and help fuel the growth of your business. Factoring companies handle your customer collections, and may also evaluate your customers credit and payment histories.
37 Some Other Major Benefits Include: Factoring can be customized and managed so that it provides necessary capital when your company needs it. The financing does not show up on your balance sheet as debt. Factoring is based on the quality of your customers credit, not your own credit or business history. Factoring provides a line of credit based on sales, not your company s net worth. Unlike a conventional loan, factoring has no limit to the amount of financing. Factoring aligns well with start-up businesses that need immediate cash flow.
38 Who Factors? Companies of all sizes, from one-person businesses to Fortune 500 corporations, use factoring as a way to increase their cash flow. Factoring spans all industries, including trucking, transportation, manufacturing and distribution, textiles, oil and gas. It is most common in industries such as clothing and toys. Companies use the cash generated from factoring to pay for inventory, buy new equipment, add employees, expand operations basically any expenses related to their business.
39 What is the Difference Between Recourse and Non-Recourse Factoring? Recourse means the client ultimately takes the responsibility for the payment of the invoice. Non-recourse factoring allows companies to sell their invoices to the factoring company, which assumes all of the credit risks for the collection of the invoice. Some factoring companies offer both recourse and non-recourse factoring.
40 What about Fees? There are, of course, costs to factoring, and the factor typically charges a fee of 1% or 2% for administration and a roughly similar sum for assuming the risk of nonpayment.
