illiquid

Popular Terms
Firm without enough cash to meet its current needs and obligations. Illiquidity is one of the major causes of business failure because a firm can survive without profit for a while but not without cash. Even firms rich in fixed assets (land, buildings, machinery) become insolvent from want of cash because it takes time to convert these assets into cash, and that too usually at a loss in value.
