About Days Inventory Outstanding
Days Inventory Outstanding (DIO), also known as Days Sales of Inventory (DSI), is an efficiency metric used to measure the average number of days a company holds inventory before selling it.
This ratio is industry specific and should be used to compare competitors and over time. Companies that create large machinery (such as Airplane manufacturers) are likely to have a higher DIO than a small retailer.
A declining ratio over time can indicate that a company is able to sell inventory at a quicker pace. An increasing ratio, generally a bad sign, can indicate a company held on to its outstanding inventory for a longer rate than usual.
DIO plays a crucial component in the Cash Conversion Cycle (CCC), which is used to determine how long cash is tied up in working capital.
