When it comes to gaining the financial buy-in you need to either secure investors or position your company for sale, providing a clear financial model can provide a powerful case for your company’s financial footing.
What is a Financial Model?
A financial model is a tool that is used to paint a picture or tell a story of a company’s financial performance. It is typically based on the historical performance of a company or a specific security, and usually projects the balance sheet, income statement, and cash flow statements monthly for a specified time period.
The financial model is usually created by performing calculations and makes recommendations based on that information. Basically, it lays out the future operating, investing, and financing activities. This information ultimately determines a company’s future profitability, financial position, and risk.
