CHAPTER 24 24.1 THE FINANCIAL PLANNING PROCESS - How does the operating income respond to increase in output - a firms total sources of funds must equal its total uses of funds in any finite planning period. The Financial Plan Financial Planning: is a process of evaluating the impact of alternative investing and financing decisions. - it has inputs, a model, and outputs - inputs: projection of sales, collections, costs, interest rates, and exchange rates - model: mathematical formula with a relationship between in and out puts - outputs: pro forma financial statements Pro Forma Financial Statements: are projected (forecasted) financial statements Budget: is a detailed schedule of a financial activity, such as an advertising budget, etc. A Model’s Planning Horizon: is the length of time its projects into the future.

Ideas are added, modified, and deleted at each level. Top Down Planning: starts with the firms top management and its strategic plans and goals proceeds downward though the organization’s levels. Good planning includes both types of planning. * 3 Phases of Financial Planning: (1) formulating the plan: should be formulated by using the bottom up top down planning (2) implementing the plan: budges, resources, operating policies - flexibility (3) evaluating the plan: overall performance to the financial plan Benefits of the Financial Plan: (1) Standardizing assumptions: make it possible to compare alternative plans (2) Future Orientation: generates new ideas and eliminates bad ones (3) Objectivity: increases the objective pursuit of the plan (4) Employee Development: it includes inputs from all employees (5) Lender Requirements: details necessary for borrowing (6) Better Performance Evaluation: provides a benchmark (7) Preparing for Contingencies: ready for unlikely outcomes 24.2 CASH BUDGETING Cash Budgeting: is the process of projecting (forecasting) and summarizing a firm;s cash inflows and outflows expected during the planning horizon. - a positive net cash flow can increase cash, reduce outstanding loans, - are used in short-term plans 24.3 PRO FORMA FINANCIAL STATEMENTS Percent of Sales Forecasting Method: a shortcut to pro forma statements and budgets. Easy method to estimate the funds required to finance growth. Additional Financing Needed (AFN) = (Required increase in assets) - ( Increase in liabilities) - (Increase in retained earnings) AFN = (A/S) g S -0(L/S) g S - 0[(1+g)S - D0 AFN = additional financing needed A/S = increase in assets required per dollar increase in sales L/S = increase in liabilities required per dollar increase in sales S = sales for the current year 0 g = growth in sales M = net profit margin on sales D = cash dividends planned for common stock Cash Flow Break-Even Point: is the point below which the firm will need either to obtain additional financing, or to liquidate some of its assets to meet its fixed costs. - it forces the company to be ready for contingencies - Control risk by: (1) change its financial leverage (2) change its operating leverage and its break even point (3) change some combination of the two. - control risk by creating contingency plans for dealing with bad outcomes. Alternatives for Inadequate Funds: 1. Reduce the growth rate: manageable level by not fully meeting the demand for its product, raise selling price. 2. Sell Assets: assets which aren't required to run the firm 3. Obtain New External Financing: 4. Reduce or stop paying dividends
