Financial Forecast Modeling

“If you don’t know where you are going, any road will get you there.” – Lewis Carroll

When prepared properly and utilized correctly, financial forecasts provide a critical road map to measure company performance.  At FDP, we understand the importance of a detailed financial forecast linked to the critical financial drivers of a business.  We work closely with management to understand and construct a detailed financial forecast and tactical action plan.  Our financial forecasts are not simply income statement forecasts.  We also forecast the balance sheet, statements of cash flows, borrowing base calculations, and financial covenant measurements.  When completed, you will have a clear picture of your financial standing and be in a better position to develop the road map that will get you where you want to be.
