A Word About Financial Forecasting

FORECASTING IS A PROCESS by which predictions are made about future conditions.  Successful businesses plan to achieve specific results by evaluating resources and alternatives, establishing future goals and designing a strategy to achieve those goals.  Those plans, when expressed in numbers, become structured numerical models, the financial forecasts of a business expressed in pro forma income statements, balance sheets and statements of cash flow.  Those forecasts can be displayed on a single sheet of paper providing the basis for an “elevator pitch” describing a business.

PRODUCING VIABLE FORECASTS requires research, experience, and resisting the inclination to make them look better than expected.  Startup or mezzanine capital must be sufficient to survive a worst case scenario.  The underlying assumptions (i.e., how the numbers were derived, for every number in the forecast, line by line) must be explainable.
