Financial Plan

The most important element in the financial plan is the critical need for improving several of the key factors that impact cash flow:

  1. Anywhere Remodeling must do a better job of collecting deposits and asking for (demanding) prompt payment from the customers.
  2. We must bring the gross margin up to 35%. This is related to improving the marketing program which will generate higher quality leads and jobs.

8.1 Important Assumptions

The financial plan depends on important assumptions, most of which are shown in the General Assumptions table below. The key underlying assumptions are:

  • A slow-growth economy, without major recession.
  • There are no unforeseen changes in technology to make our services immediately obsolete (very unlikely).
  • We assume access to equity capital and financing sufficient to maintain our financial plan as shown in the tables.
General Assumptions
FY 2009 FY 2010 FY 2011 FY 2012 FY 2013
Plan Month 1 2 3 4 5
Current Interest Rate 7.00% 7.00% 7.00% 7.00% 7.00%
Long-term Interest Rate 10.00% 10.00% 10.00% 10.00% 10.00%
Tax Rate 25.00% 25.00% 25.00% 25.00% 25.00%

8.2 Break-even Analysis

The break-even analysis can be found below.

Break-even Analysis
Monthly Revenue Break-even $113,038
Assumptions:
Average Percent Variable Cost 54%
Estimated Monthly Fixed Cost $52,121

8.3 Projected Profit and Loss

The most important assumption in the Projected Profit and Loss statement is the gross margin, which is supposed to increase, up quite a bit from the last year. The increase in gross margin is based on changing our sales mix due to increased target marketing based on 5% assumptions between years.

Month-by-month assumptions for profit and loss are included in the appendices.

8.4 Projected Cash Flow

The cash flow depends on assumptions for payment days and accounts receivable management. The projected 75-day collection days is critical, and it is also reasonable.
