Forecasting for infrastructure projects
We have in-depth knowledge of project-related finance and development cycle. Our model gives you a de-risked investment case, determines the best structure and clear valuation on future cash flows.
Forecasting for business
Whether you are raising funds, setting targets or build a business case - our models enable you to understand the potential, see where value is created (and lost) and hone in on the sensitivities and drivers of hitting your milestone.
We build your model within the requirements and constraints of the transaction, allowing you to understand the implications of flexing the investment structure, the valuations and downside protection.
We can also review your model.
Having your model reviewed by Almax provides assurance on the integrity and the reasonableness of the assumptions giving you the confidence in your numbers.
Our approach to model audit includes an assessment of assumptions and formulae that underpin the model together with a review of outputs and sensitivities. By reviewing the detail of the assumptions and formula, and undertaking a high-level review of outputs. In addition, we analyse key sensitivities to provide further assurance on the integrity of the model and to identify any potential funding issues or covenant breaches.
Our reports include a summary of errors identified during our review together with recommendations on the improvement of the structure of the model.
We’ll start by scoping out the requirements of your forecast -What is the purpose of the model? This will include a deep dive into your business model, your strategy, the market dynamics, your key drivers and what you need to deliver the plan. This helps capture your vision, identify any detailed analysis or insight that is to be included.
We’ll get to work on building you the bankable and bespoke model based on the scoping session, as a standard this will include full income statement, balance sheet, cash flow and investor return metrics. We focus as much on the design on the model to make sure it is intuitive, reusable and credible.
Model review & critique
We then have a number of review sessions to ensure the model meets your requirements and go through iterations of corrections. We also run our assumption validation exercise to assess your inputs and identify any further analysis that may be required.
Customer support begins
Once the model is signed off, we will hand over the model to you with detailed guidance. We can continue to support your model and can “own” the model throughout a transaction to financial close.
With each modelling engagement we deliver:
You will get bespoke financial models in Microsoft Excel (or Googlesheets) that are flexible, robust, transparent, and bankable.
Each model we produce is developed from scratch using proven methodologies, allowing us to tailor a solution that really meets your needs.
We build forecasts under the FAST, IFRS for SME or US GAAP accounting standards with standard investor colour coding and best practise helping traceability and speeding up reviews and due diligence. We also supply an assumption validation booklet so you can quickly understand the sources of key business drivers which gives you confidence and defendability.
Each model will be to the granularity that you require and deliver the core metrics to allow you to understand the financial implications of future decisions and core valuation and performance metrics.
