PART ii

Excel Spreadsheet and Written Analysis – Chosen Company Financial Forecast

Similar to last module/week’s assignment, use your Excel financial model to create a financial forecast for your company. First, use the ratio analysis you conducted (and any other information you can find about analyst’s projections for the firm) to create all assumptions required for your forecasting model. Generate a written list of all of your assumptions, with a reason or explanation for each assumption. For example, if you assume that sales will grow at 12 percent for the next year, provide specific justification for this assumption. Do this for every assumption that you use to create your forecasts. You should have assumptions for every account listed in Chapter 14 of your textbook (if an account is not valid, you can ignore that item, but there should be very few that are not valid).

Your report must include the forecasting printout from your financial model. Finally, evaluate the implications of your forecasts for your company. Do your forecasts indicate strength? Weakness? Why? Your paper must be at least 1000 words in length using proper current APA guidelines. Make sure to properly reference and cite your 3 sources.

PART III

Excel Spreadsheet and Written Analysis – Chosen Company Valuation

Using your Excel financial model, create a valuation estimate for your company. Your estimate will incorporate the following:

· The weighted average cost of capital

· The free cash flows

· The terminal value

· The enterprise value

· The equity value

Your financial model, if properly constructed, will create all of these items except for the weighted average cost of capital. Find and read at least 3 scholarly articles about the weighted average cost of capital (WACC). In Part I of your report, write a summary of the articles that you read.

To create WACC for your model, you must find values for all parts of the WACC equation (for your company). In Part II of your report, list the values you believe are appropriate for the WACC equation for your company and provide specific justification for each variable estimate.

Next, use your WACC assumptions within your financial model to create a valuation estimate. A printout of your valuation estimate will be Part III of your report. Finally, in Part IV, compare your estimate to the actual enterprise value (i.e., debt value plus equity value) of the company. Explain (as best you can) the difference between your forecasted valuation and the actual value of the company, offering some possible explanations for the deviation.

Your paper should be at least 1000 words in length using proper current APA guidelines. Make sure to properly reference and cite your sources.
