Cash Flow Modelling during COVID-19
The COVID-19 crisis is having an unprecedented impact on the economics and finances of companies across all industries. Businesses are experiencing drastic declines in revenues, and some have already initiated mass layoffs as a result. The stock market is also on a downward decline that may take years to recover from.
To cope with this situation, many businesses must undergo dramatic cost cuts just to keep the lights on. A key factor in decision making under these circumstances is the ability to model cash flow to a significant degree of flexibility, to assist business executives with decision making that will allow the continuation of their business throughout the crisis and beyond.
The Cash Flow Modelling webinar presented by Sapling Financial Consultants will cover best practices and requirements for using financial models to monitor cash flow and stress testing a business’s financial situation. It will examine how to model various scenarios exploring changing circumstances:
- An extension of the shutdown period
- Changes in government supports
- Effects of cost cutting measures and other mitigants: layoffs, payment terms extensions, lender supports
This webinar will provide insights into how various industries are adjusting and preparing themselves for a future where the COVID-19 crisis drags on.
A robust model template will also be included, which will be distributed for free to all participants.
