Financial Modeling – Fundamentals Part 2
Using a real company forecast model, we start the session by reviewing the structure and key components of an integrated three statement forecast model. We then focus on modeling operating cash (required cash) and separating it from excess cash. We then teach participants how to build a forecast cash flow statement from scratch, using income statement and balance sheet inputs. The last part of this session focuses on interest calculations and circularities, where we teach participants the difference between using beginning, ending or average debt/cash balances and how to work safely and effectively with or without circular formulae in a model.
