In this paper we examine the association between efficient working capital management and financial constraints for a sample of Australian firms. Using a text-based measure of financial constraints, we show that efficient working capital management is associated with lower financial constraints in firms in the next two to three years. Ours is the first study to use a text-based measure of financial constraints for Australian firms. We also show that the negative association between financial constraints and future share price is significantly weakened for firms with efficient working capital management, suggesting that such firms have higher market valuations despite being financially constrained. Finally, analysts seem take into account working capital management of firms when setting the one year ahead target price. © 2019 Elsevier B.V.
