At Calcbench, we are constantly using our data and analytics to inform our clients and user community about economic events. As you know, since the beginning of the year, the US dollar has appreciated against world currencies by roughly 5-6% according to a Bloomberg index.

As the first quarter filing season comes to a close, we are able to catch a glimpse of how this directly affects US Corporations. Below is a list of non-financial firms in the S&P 500 for which we have filings. In the column on the right is the currency impact on their overall cash positions.

Some simple statistics can define the impact. The average non-financial firm in the S&P 500 has lost $71 million dollars. IBM has lost the most at $449 Million, followed by General Motors at $444 Million. Sealed Air Corporation, in the meantime has gained $40.8 million dollars.

We took financial firms out of our analysis as their businesses are directly involved in the foreign exchange markets and cash is an operating asset for these firms.

In the table below, you will find the impact of the foreign exchange effect in millions of dollars, followed by the year end cash value from the balance sheet. In the fourth column is the percentage impact of the exchange rate effect. Finally, we give you the impact on a a shareholder basis, that is the increase(decrease) in the cash per share value.

You can do this analysis directly on Calcbench today. Sign up and give it a go by using our Benchmarking tool and selecting “Effect Of Exchange Rate on Cash” as your data point with a self-defined peer group of firms. It has never been easier!
