Financial Models: We “un-complicate” the numbers, leaving you an easy-to-use financial model.  If the cashflows are clearer, so will be the decisions. Our staff have been modeling for> 20 years: they can finish tasks and problem-solve, in the fraction of a time of new modelers- we are financial modeling specialists.

-“$100m in one day” :  as an example : in a recent assignment we identified> $100million of errors in a client’s model, via applying  error-check software..and – our brain (we check the logic).  The model was a typical “bolt-on” where one person created it and then others added more rows and formulae – that had already been used-and thus double discounted the revenue.

-Our clients are not Excel experts: they are CEO’s, CFO’s, engineers, etc, and thus we don’t leave them with complex models and unnecessary long formulae and macro’s. We deliver a clear and easy-to-understand cashflow forecasting model.

-Be careful buying off-the-shelf , “one-size-fits-all” template models. As it’s very rare such template models do actually fit all. Consequently you may end up spending more time inserting rows and columns, and amending formulae to reflect your business, than had you come to a professional modeller and had one built for you “from scratch”, or we can amend an existing model you have.

 We build or re-build models with a variety of end-uses:
Valuations, Acquisitions, Divestments
-Borrowing funds? Lending funds? We create models for both
-Project feasability: PFS/BFS/ DFS
-Project Finance: DSCR,ICR, LLCR, PLCR
-Leveraged Finance and Private Equity: Debt/EBITDA, entry and exit multiples
-Bid tenders/Corporate Finance/IPO’s
…or simply – a clear cashflow model to better understand your future cashflows.

We provide a range of audit services: 
from a quick “health-check” that could take one day to one week
-Building you a new model “from scratch”
-Taking your existing model and review/audit and re-build: ensuring all inputs and calculations in the model match source documents/ checking that model logic is correct/ creating a “shadow model”, as the ultimate check that your model is delivering the correct outputs under both base case and sensitivities/ adding many error checks to minimise errors going forward.
