ANTICIPATING HOW DECISIONS WILL IMPACT YOUR CASH FLOW

Strategic planning and cash flow management often require financial modeling to provide insight into your business’ near, and long-term, outlook. Financial modeling enables you to gain an informed view of underlying operational drivers and expected cash flow to help minimize uncertainty in your decision making.

Scenarios where a financial modelling helps in decision making

  • Purchasing ownership in a business: how can you gain a better understanding of the investment thesis? What impact will value creation opportunities, synergies and leverage have on overall returns?
  • Selling a division of a business: what are the cash flows of the division? Can management maximize value by carving out the division?
  • Obtaining new financing: how much new debt can your business support? Will your company’s cash flows be sufficient to make debt repayments and maintain financial covenants?
  • Scenario and “what-if” analysis: should you expand into new service lines? What happens to cash flow if anticipated revenue and expenses vary from the projections?
  • Industry-specific analysis: what is the size of the market, target market share, customer acquisition costs and ultimate path to profitability?
