Financial Forecasts


Smartcom's principals have diversified backgrounds in strategic management consulting at several large ASX companies, principle investing activities in venture capital, and operational experiences in entrepreneurial ventures. This broad, cross-functional experience allows us to offer our extensive expertise in developing realistic business plans for large corporations and their critical initiatives, as well as smaller companies and their high-growth ventures.  Typical components of business plans include:


  • Executive Summary

  • Vision and Strategy

  • Business Opportunity

  • Market Potentials

  • Competitive Analysis

  • Financial Forecast

  • Technology Requirements

  • Appendices of Supporting Data


Optimizing the allocation of financial resources is absolutely critical to the success of all business initiatives.  Smartcom's financial forecasts most often consist of multiple layers of itemized cost and revenue categories, with underlying assumptions, all rolled up to a summary sheet facilitating calculations of business valuation and/or ROI estimates.  Key highlights of our financial modeling and planning include: 

  • 3-, 5-, or 10-year projections

  • Clear explanation of "assumptions" versus "hard numbers"

  • Sensitivity analysis to demonstrate the changes in profits as a function of fluctuations in the underlying assumptions

  • Full validation of all input numbers based on industry research reports, external and/or internal experts' opinions, and client's internal data
