What is Cash Runway, Anyway?
Cash runway is the amount of time a company can continue to operate at its current burn rate before it runs out of cash. The burn rate is the rate at which a company is spending its cash reserves.
Cash Runway Formula:
Cash Runway Current Cash Reserves ➗ Monthly Cash Burn
- Company A:
- Current Cash Reserves: $500,000
- Monthly Cash Burn: $50,000
- Cash Runway: 500,000/50,000 = 10 months
- Company A can operate for 10 more months before it runs out of cash, given the current spending and income pattern.
- Company B:
- Current Cash Reserves: $750,000
- Monthly Cash Burn: $125,000
- Cash Runway: 750,000/125,000 = 6 months
- Company B has enough cash to sustain operations for another 6 months before running out of money.
TL;DR: cash runway provides a timeframe for how long a company can sustain its operations without additional funding, allowing management to make informed decisions about financing and cost-cutting if necessary.
