Financial Foundation – Session 4

Hosted by: Denise MacDonald and Steve Fisher

The TTM is an invaluable accounting tool that allows us to look back and spot trends over time.  But to scale a business up or down through any market condition and survive, we must look forward and plan accordingly.  A Pro Forma, also generated monthly, allows us to forecast how the business is likely to perform in the future by projecting the potential financial impact of hypothetical strategies.  A Pro Forma empowers us to justify the decisions we make in our business.   

In this session, we will explore: 

  • Using a Pro Forma to numerically test potential strategies in the service industry versus the manufacturing industry 
  • How to calculate break-even 
  • The role of break-even analysis in decision-making
