About this template

How to use the template?

  1. 1. Any number in blue with a grey shaded background is an input (i.e. an assumption or data point that can be changed), anything in black is the result of a formula. Change blue at will, change anything in black with caution.
  2. 2. All cells and formulas are unlocked - as in all Foresight models - so that you can make edits as needed and completely understand what is going on.
  3. 3. All assumptions are illustrative only, do not assume they are market data or standard.
  4. 4. As with all templates, feel free to create your own model from scratch, using this as a guide.
  5. 5. The model is constructed to fit a wide variety of businesses, and therefore, some sections may or may not be relevant to yours, everything is open for you to edit and customize for your use.

Visit Foresight to get more instructions and videos on how to use the model.
