The 3 Statement Model is the foundation of any financial model. The 3 Statement Model links the Income Statement, Balance Sheet and Cash Flow Statement together dynamically. Included in the template you will find:
• The Income Statement, Balance Sheet and Cash Flow Statement
• An Assumptions Section with key drivers for the business
• Supporting Schedules Section for PPE, Retained Earnings and Long-Term Debt
• Graphs to visually display the Income Statement and Cash Flow Statement
First is the Assumptions sections where Assumptions are entered in the cells for the projection periods. All assumptions can be modified to fit specific key drivers of the business to see their impact on the 3 Statement model. Up to 3 years of historical data are entered into the income statement, balance sheet and cash flow statement; the following projected years are driven by formulas from the Assumptions section. The Supporting Schedules section is all formulas that are tied to the Assumptions and 3 Statement sections so no editing is necessary. Lastly, the Charts and Graphs section displays the Income Statement and Cash Flow Statement visually. The correlating data is above the graphs and tied to the model with formulas so they will automatically adjust to any modifications in the model.
All cells in black font are input cells where custom information can be entered. All cells in blue font are formulas set to streamline the model. Sections are grouped to condense the model to view sections individually.
