You are examining this data that you received from the affiliates. The analyst in your department has prepared the tables below that show cash inflows and cash outflows in local currencies and exchange rates. Assume the data is for Quarter 4, 2004. Use this data to assess currency risk.

 

Table 1: Net Cash Inflows and Outflows in Local Currency and US Dollars for 2004
