Business Plan Financial Projections

The expert analysts at Pro Business Plans have a background in consulting and investment banking, so they understand what investors look for and are very likely to have experience in your industry. Financial projections can be either haphazard and emotionally driven speculations about the future, or reasonable assumptions drawn from unbiased third-party research and an analysis of your business model. Pro Business Plans includes the following sections in its business plan financial projections:

Income Statement

The income statement in the business plan financial projections is probably the most traditional financial statement that everyone is familiar with. It communicates the fundamental profit and loss projections of the company in terms of how and when revenue is expected and where expenses will be allocated. This is important because some companies may have unusual revenue forecasts that can be communicated in no other way than in the income statement. For instance, a company that is owned by the same subsidiary firm may have synergies that reduce engineering expenses and suggest a higher than industry average profit margin.




Cash Flows

The cash flow statement of the business plan financial projections demonstrate how the company will manage its finances through the acquisition of new assets, accounts receivables, and new investment inflows. This is an important statement to include in the projections because if your company anticipates future financing rounds, or will be making large capital expenditures, these will both be communicated through these statements. Financiers or other third parties reviewing the statements will want to know how the cash flows of the company will be impacted by the impending intentions of its management team.




Balance Sheet & Risk Management

The balance sheet in the business plan financial projections outlines the capital structure of the company. Investors will be interested to review the balance sheet in order to understand the amount of debt the company has and what its fixed assets are currently valued at. This will help to determine if the company is capable of acquiring more debt and better understand its risk level relative to alternative investment options. The balance sheet holds less importance for startup companies, unless they already have a capital structure or have acquired assets.

The risk analysis section of the business plan financial projections outlines the financial ratios and custom analysis that investors will use to analyze the investment opportunity. The risk analysis includes such additional modeling as a break-even analysis, custom scenario analysis, and a spread of key ratios. For instance, some investment groups may request to know the amount of customers that a company with high overhead must serve in order to break-even on its investment.
