Model build, Beverage start-up

The Challenge

The client required a financial model to support fundraising efforts.

Though the client had excellent financial and commercial acumen, a model was required to present the financial information in a suitable format for funding purposes.

The Solution

We conducted a workshop to understand the products and business processes. Armed with in-depth information, we then designed and built a business planning financial model in Microsoft Excel that included a five-year forecast: presenting the data on a monthly and annual basis.

The model consisted of Integrated Financial Statements with a built-in dashboard presenting KPIs and an overview of the investors’ return on equity.

The model also included direct and indirect cash flows to assist in optimal working capital management. The model was built according to best practice – instilling confidence in the investors’ decision-making.

The Outcome

The client was able to present financial data in an acceptable format for investors to assess – presenting the model with confidence, outlining the relevant outputs, and highlighting their return on investment.

The model is now used as an operating model with easily updateable inputs and assumptions that the client finds beneficial and user-friendly. The client returns regularly to us to develop the model in line with business expansion.
