Single-Year Forecast Model

The single-year model enables the user to create single year forecasts (i.e., split a single year's forecast into twelve (12) individual monthly forecasts) for any year's forecast created with the five-year financial forecast models (for established, early stage and start-up businesses); the LBO valuation model; and the private equity placement model.

Your already-completed annual forecast, plus a few assumptions concerning business seasonality and cost behavior, create the first draft of a comprehensive twelve (12) month financial forecast by month.

The output of the single-year financial forecast model consists of the primary financial statements - monthly income statements, balance sheets and cash flow statements; documentation detailing the key assumptions underlying the forecast; and forecasted financial ratio data and statistics which are used by business managers, banks and other providers of capital to evaluate financial performance.
