Comparative Analysis of Receivables and Inventories The following information is taken from the annual reports of The Coca-Cola Company and PepsiCo, Inc. The two companies are fierce competitors, but they differ in important respects. Coca-Cola is more “cola-centric,” which means that its core Coke and Diet Coke brands play a more dominant role in the company than Pepsi brand cola does in PepsiCo. Although Coca-Cola is the world leader in soft drinks, by a large margin, PepsiCo is the bigger company because of greater diversification. Both companies sell bottled water and other beverages (e.g., health and energy drinks), but these products feature more prominently in PepsiCo. Also, PepsiCo is the world leader in salty snacks through its Frito Lay business. Required a. For both companies, calculate the receivables period, the inventory period, and the length of the operating cycle for 2011. Assume that all sales are on credit. b. Comment on any differences you observe between the two companies. What reasons can you give for why the companies have different operating cycles?
