A financial model is simply a tool that’s built-in Excel to forecast a business’ financial performance 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. Below is an example of financial modeling in Excel.
The Financial Modeling course pack teaches you how to construct an integrated financial model – from scratch! You will soon be building models that are robust, provide you with dynamic projections that can be used to thoroughly analyze a company from multiple standpoints: operations, investment, financing, and valuation.
