Consolidated Business Plan : A little revolution !
Discover how Opera can be used to quickly build and update your financial forecasts based on an accounting situation. Let us be clear right away that this is a small revolution in the management world. Indeed, today very few groups have managed to equip themselves to produce their consolidated financial forecasts in a secure and rapid manner. With this new module, Amelkis allows financial managers to anticipate their cash flow performance with great precision.
Case study in an international group
Let's start with a simple case: a well-integrated IT group with 12 subsidiaries around the world and a turnover of 100 million euros. We therefore have currency and intra-group transactions issues in a very active and volatile business sector that requires significant financial resources to hope to develop. In this environment, management's objectives are relatively simple. It aims to enable shareholders and financial partners to have a sharpened look at the group's future by visualizing the financial impacts of development projects. But it also wants to be able to anticipate its short-term financing needs and acquire real agility because these projects are ambitious and its sector of activity is constantly changing.
Visualize the evolution of your group's overall profitability over the next few years
Consolidated balance sheet over 5 years
To measure the evolution of certain balance sheet items, Opera allows you to generate a consolidated balance sheet and zoom in on the items that interest you, such as trade receivables that are important in your sector of activity.
Impact of WCR on cash flow
You want to have a global and synthetic vision of cash generation. You want to know the impact of the change in working capital requirements because you have asked the subsidiaries to make a significant effort over the next two years to self-finance part of the development projects. You will have this information thanks to the 5-year flow table.
Monthly cash flow budget
Measure the monthly variations in your cash flow over the current and next year to ensure that the seasonality of your activity does not risk slowing down your projects. The cash flow budget is designed for this purpose.
Finally, to conclude, you will need to produce specific indicators because your group has committed to covenants with financial partners. Here again, it will be possible to monitor the ratios you have chosen in a global or more restricted way.
