The importance of developing thoughtful and supportable cash flows cannot be overstated. This webinar will address the necessary factors to consider when projecting cash flows. The different categories of normalization adjustments will be discussed, with examples. The discussion will address the review of historical trends and what they mean for the future. We will also explore the importance of projecting a balance sheet in conjunction with an income statement. Different projection methods will be discussed, as well as how to handle projections from management that may lack credibility.
