Webinar Recording

Better Planning Through Balance Sheet Forecasting

Date: Tuesday, May 23, 2017
Time: 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT
Balance sheet forecasting sounds terribly tough, but it’s not. If you can forecast your P & L, then balance sheet forecasting is just an extension that can strengthen the quality of your earnings forecast and actually help predict the future financial health of your organization. For example, a balance sheet forecast provides that critical cash flow dimension which will assure banks and investors that you can match sources with uses of funds to achieve everyone’s financial goals . Bruce Lynn, a corporate treasury consultant specializing in cash and working capital management, will walk through a “how to” to suggest practical best practices in balance sheet forecasting, using examples and numbers to help cement the learning.

During the webinar Bruce will discuss why balance sheet forecasting is important and how to link it to a P & L forecast. The webinar will also discuss the assumptions required to forecast key components of any balance sheet with its ability to provide insight into future financial ratios, working capital (A/R, Inventory and A/P), cash and investments, CAPEX, debt and equity.

By the end of the webinar your planning team will be able to initiate a balance sheet forecast and integrate this forecast with the other parts of your financial plan.
After attending this event you will be able to:
Recognize why balance sheet forecasting is important and how to link it to a P & L forecast
Identify the assumptions required to forecast key components of any balance sheet
Identify how to initiate a balance sheet forecast
