This discussion is worth 80 points and it is part of your Course Project.

Before you get started on this exercise, you will need the textbook (Chapter 16- The Financials), the Business Plan Financials Guide and Excel document, and NAB Company Portfolio.

This Assignment has two sections:

Section I: The Business Plan financials (Excel document)- complete this first

Using your NAB Company Portfolio and the first year of your business plan for the company, you will complete all the worksheets in the entire Excel document in order, so that you can complete the Income Statement, Cash Flow Projections, and Balance Sheet sections from the Business Plan Financials spreadsheet.

Notes:

  • The setup and marketing worksheet should already be completed from assignment 2.
  • Use the instructions provided in the Business Plan Financials Guide to help you complete this document, as well as the NAB Portfolio (pages 4-8).

1.Sources and use of funds

  • Outline the funds you have currently (see portfolio pages 4 and 8) and the ones you intend to raise (you need to raise funds per the portfolio page 4)

-Page 314 in the textbook about break-even analysis

-The BrkEvn (Break-Even) worksheet in your Excel document. You would have calculated this there.
