English term or phrase: supply on hand in inventory
Ihr Lieben,

ich kause also noch einmal weiter an diesem Abschnitt (siehe auch meine anderen Fragen). Kann mich jemand im Gesamtkontext auch hier noch erhellen?

Net cash provided by operating activities was $279.8 million in fiscal 2009 compared to $357.4 million in fiscal 2008. The $279.8 million cash provided by operations in fiscal 2009 was due primarily to our earnings and the timing of both cash receipts from our customers and payments to our vendors. We continue to focus on working capital management by monitoring several key metrics, including our cash conversion cycle (also referred to as “net cash days”) and owned inventory levels, that we use to manage our working capital. Our net cash days are defined as days of sales outstanding in accounts receivable (“DSO”) plus days of ****supply on hand in inventory (“DOS”)****, less days of purchases outstanding in accounts payable (“DPO”). Owned inventory is calculated as the difference between our inventory and accounts payable balances divided into the inventory balance. Our net cash days improved slightly to 27 days at the end of fiscal 2009 compared to 28 days at the end of fiscal 2008. Our owned inventory level (the percentage of inventory not financed by our vendor partners) was a negative 35% at the end of fiscal 2009, meaning our accounts payable balances exceeded our inventory balances by 35%. This compares to negative owned inventory of 39% at the end fiscal 2008.

Danke allen schon einmal!

Lagerumschlag (in Tagen)
Explanation:
Der Lagerumschlag gibt an, wieviel Umsatz (natürlich zu CoS) ich im Lager habe, das heisst, wie oft sich mein Lager im Jahr dreht. Der Lagerumschlag in Tagen gibt an, wieviele Tage Umsatz ich im Lager habe. Da er zu Cost of Sales gerechnet wird, gibt diese Kennzahl an, wie lange Cash im Lager gebunden ist. Das solltwe möglichst kurz sein
