Financial Model Build, Re-build and General Advisory

Need a model built? We can either start “from scratch”, or take your existing model and build on that.

Let us do your financial modelling (faster than you can) so you can focus on your business (..or project or transaction). We also assist in wider transaction advisory: due diligence review, general transaction support, and Investor facing roles

Are you selling an asset? Buying an asset? Approaching an investor (debt or equity) for funding? Submitting a bid? Or simply wish to ascertain correct forecast cashflows for your business? You need to determine the valuation and return (NPV and IRR)? Or the debt capacity (DSCR and PLCR)? Should you spend EUR300m on a 3rd manufacturing site? Whatever the reason you need a financial model for, we can assist

Just need one base case model? We can do that. Need 30 different scenarios done? We do that as well: also working with you to identify key factors affecting the business and which should be sensitised.

When it comes to model build or re-build, the common element is that clients ask us to “uncomplicate” the numbers and create for them a clear, easy-to-use model. Our clients are not Excel experts, and busy enough with their transaction, hence we keep the model as simple and user-friendly as possible: a tool that will help them : not create more work for them .

The numbers come from somewhere- thus we do more than modelling: We read the input documents: this could range from one Information Memorandum/Offering Document to over 200 documents (Technical, Market, Traffic, Patronage, Engineering, Environmental, Legal, Forecast FX rates, Forecast CPI rates, Forecast Product specifications etc)-We have many years experience reviewing complex Due Diligence documents and ensuring the model reflects the inputs and calculations from such documents

We are based on the Continent, hence you can hire local staff who speak your language (native European speakers) who will come and work from your office, or work remotely- whatever suits the client. The assignment could be a 2 day cashflow build, a 3 month debt raising exercise or a 2 year construction project with complex engineering and other DD reports- whatever your needs we have the people for you.

Your time is better spent on your business, and by outsourcing your financial modelling to experienced professionals (who can do the modelling faster than you), you can. Why pay for full-time financial modellers or investment analysts when you only need them occasionally? That’s where we can help. For an overview of our service portfolio, please visit this page.

Financial Modelling Audits

A financial model is only as good as its inputs and calculations – hence the importance of a thorough financial model audit, by an external party, that brings fresh eyes and an impartial perspective. Audits range from a quick “health check” to a complete, thorough audit of inputs, the source of the inputs, the veracity of the assumptions book (i.e. where did the inputs come from?), the logic flow, calculations, and outputs. Our diagnostic tools will pick up any Excel issues in minutes, and then our many years experience reviewing Due Diligence and input documents will ascertain if the model matches the source documents.
