Oak Business became the advisor in this project for financial model and evaluation. The critical part is to analyze the market size as there was no research available before. Based on the market research we built a financial model with the following services.
We built input assumptions of investment, followed by Assets, and operating expenses so that we can forecast the expected revenue. A company like this, increase the variable cost as the transaction increase, like support cost (No. of employees increase when no. of transactions increase.
We took the expenses and revenue growth based on the prior data of the company.
In the first section of the income statement, we forecasted the no. of subscribers sign up, along with that, we analyze the churn rate of customers who are not doing any activity after signing up.
After analyzing the no. of customers, we projected the revenue. This company has multiple revenue models. We calculated the income for each model separately based on the no. of subscribers.
After compiling the revenue and expenses, we calculated the monthly and yearly income statements.
