A web-based software system designed by Corporate Finance Network.
Corporate Finance Network, Inc. provides cloud-based, fully integrated corporate finance software for forecasting, valuing and analyzing start-up, early stage and established businesses.
Our corporate finance models address many of the essential and extremely important financial analysis tasks performed by middle market companies and their advisors, including commercial and investment bankers.
Based on assumptions provided by the user, our corporate finance models help members do the following:
" Create a five-year financial forecast for established, early stage, start-up and publicly traded businesses, including income statements, balance sheets and cash flow statements. The creation of multiple forecast “scenarios” is typically used to test financial feasibility (i.e., determine the financial resources needed to meet the plan), and to establish long-term financial goals and objectives.
" Using the financial forecast as the base, determine the estimated LBO valuation of a business. The LBO value is the estimated value of the enterprise to a buyer who owns no other business in the company’s industry (i.e., the value to a non-synergistic buyer). This valuation method is also appropriate for use in reviewing management buyout opportunities. The method is equally useful to both buyers and sellers of businesses.
" Using the financial forecast as the base, estimate the current value of a business and the amount of ownership existing owners would give up if their business were to accomplish a private equity placement.
A private equity placement consists of the sale by a business of equity ownership units, including common stock, preferred stock and subordinated debt with equity warrants. This model is equally useful to both the issuers of securities and to the investors in such securities. It estimates the reasonable “pricing” of private equity placements.
" Create single year forecasts (split a single year’s annual forecast into twelve (12) individual monthly forecasts) for any year’s forecast created with any of the financial forecast models; and any year’s forecast contained in an LBO valuation and a private equity placement analysis.
" Using Corporate Finance Network-supplied historical operating data, determine the estimated intrinsic value per share of the stock of selected public companies using the public company valuation model. This model uses fundamental valuation principles, such as future estimated cash flows, EBITDA and capital structure to estimate the current intrinsic value per share of a company’s common stock.
