The Effects of the Economics Crisis on the Liquidity of the Hungarian Firms

The economic crisis of 2008 has changed a number of market factors so turning liquidity management a real challenge for Hungarian firms. Receivables became harder to collect, inventories harder to sell, bank financing harder and more expansive to get. Examining the financial statements of more than 4000 Hungarian private manufacturing firms for the period of 2008-2011 I investigate how certain groups of firms were affected and did react on the changes. Using statistical methods I will identify groups of companies more “shock-proof” and describe what characteristics may help businesses to manage liquidity risks caused by outside market factors. I also examine whether there were industries or regions more hit than others.
