Financial Modeling Overview

Financial modeling is an invaluable tool for forecasting future financial performance, measuring a business's value, evaluating M&A activity, assessing the impact of possible business scenarios and understanding performance sensitivity to volatile future environmental factors.

A financial model is simply a tool that’s built usually in Excel to forecast financial performance of a business into the future. The forecast is typically based on the company’s historical performance, assumptions about the future, and requires preparing an income statement, balance sheet, cash flow statement and supporting schedules (known as a 3 statement model). From there, more advanced types of models can be built such as discounted cash flow analysis (DCF model), leveraged-buyout (LBO), mergers and acquisitions (M&A), and sensitivity analysis.

At ACS, we combine decades of collective experience of our consultants to create a skill-set which well-surpasses the above mentioned minimum criteria.

Our financial modeling services help provide reliable three-statement forecasts using driver-based assumptions, tailored to your business and your needs. Our models can incorporate profitability, cashflow and asset value projections over the medium term so that any potential obstacles can be planned for in advance.

All our models are built with purpose in mind, following best practice modelling techniques - producing dynamic, valuable and user-friendly models. Our models integrate your business’s historic and ongoing results, enabling simple periodic roll-forward.

Our models assure investors who want to test the assumptions put before them, and can also be used as an ongoing management tool. They empower decision makers within the business to stress test, sensitise and visualise future expectations.

Our tried and tested approach ensures a smooth and efficient development experience. We take the time to understand your business, data and purpose of the model so we can build your model in a streamlined manner from the outset.

Throughout the process, we adopt a collaborative approach with regular check-ins to ensure the model is built to your specifications and provides the outputs that you need to suit the original purpose.

10 Steps Financial Modeling Process

for a generic business valuation model

Though each assignment could have varying needs, given below is a generic step-by-step breakdown of where we start and how we eventually connect all the dots to produce next generation financial models.

1. We analyze & compile historical results and assumptions

Most financial model starts with a company’s historical results. We begin building the financial model by pulling three to five years of financial statements and inputting them into Excel.

Next, we reverse engineer the assumptions for the historical period by calculating things like revenue growth rate, gross margins, variable costs, fixed costs, AR days, inventory days, and AP days, to name a few.

From there we fill in the assumptions for the forecast period.
