Financial Model

Developing financial forecasts for your company can be a scary prospect. This requires the examination of fixed and variable costs, growth projections, pricing strategy, capital structuring, building versus buying, break-even and other necessary concepts.

This holds true for startups looking to justify their revenue and cost models, established companies examining new income lines, or companies searching for additional investors. Our financial forecasts solution is geared to address unique situations by developing financial models appropriate for your specific needs.

Our Solution

Our financial model is a powerful tool that helps visualize the continuous evolution of your company’s
financial shape. No matter the life-cycle stage of your company, our solution can be customized to
provide a reality-based outlook on the prospects of your organization. This process is as much art as
science and we have the experience to help you get it right.

We are guided by the following principles in the development of your unique financial forecast model:

  1. Developing simplified assumptions that examine the determining factors in your company’s
    business model.
  2. Establishing variable relationships where a change in a determining factor automatically adjusts
    variable factors tied to it.

Some of the other key features of our gold standard model are:

  • Statement of comprehensive income (profit and loss statements), statement of financial position
    (balance sheet) and statement of cash flows
  • Operating and capital cost statements
  • Cost of capital statements
  • Enterprise valuation statements
  • Detailed assumptions by category
  • Presentation of key ratios
