Problem The client was planning to open another branch in Mexico, so he needs some external capital investment, and requires a financial projection for the second branch with consideration of his first branch sales and expenses. Solutions Oak Business shook hands with the client to become the official advisor in the project. Oak's business core job is to forecast the restaurant’s capital need, assets requirements, burn rate, and profit and loss.The restaurant business has a different perspective to analyze, as we couldn’t apply the growth rate in the restaurant because the area is limited, irrespective of the population and demand. We can only serve to limited no. of customers as long as we have space. So in the restaurant model, business acumen opens new branches to increase the revenue and profit. Similarly, the restaurant business requires more operational efficiencies. If the kitchen gets late to cook cuisine, this means customers will wait until cuisine has been served, the customer will occupy the table and chair, which means, for the time being, you cannot serve afterward customers. Oak business consultant provided the following services. Input Assumptions We built input assumptions of investment, followed by restaurant layout, assets, and operating expenses so that we can forecast the expected revenue. The layout is the most crucial element to consider first because restaurant revenue all depends on the design. If the model is efficient, so we could have more chairs and table in that space, means for customers can be served in a time period. Based on the Layout out, we make assumptions of the assets and operational expenses. Revenue Forecast/ Income Statement After getting a sense of the layout, we search out the population and demand for Thai cuisine. Moreover, we assume the percentage of customers served based on the design. We calculated the inflow of no. of customers in a day, then weeks and then months. Also, we build a design income statement, with the revenue and expenses that we expected to occur. All variable and fixed expenses are calculated in the sheet, including Salaries, Marketing, Content, Utilities, etc. Income StatementBased on the revenue model and cost structure, we build an income statement for 5 years.

Background A Land Development company based in Edmonton, Canada. They are specialized in acquiring real estate such as growing land, build infrastructure for individuals, mixed family, corporate, and tenants. Challenge The company was going to start a new project and was planning to acquire another land. But before that, they want proper research and analysis of the cost that is attached to the project and the profitability of the project. They wanted to have depth financial models, through which they can evaluate the project. Solution Oak Business Consultant helped him to build a dynamic and depth financial model so that they can play with the numbers in the forecast model. Real Estate business models have multiple factors to analyze, as the cost structure is very complex and links with many other industries, sectors like Steel, Cement, Engineering, and Plastics. The development cost of Real Estate would vary if any of the raw material cost increases. On the other hand, the land has to capitalize on a maximum level, and they will have more houses, apartments, etc. So, real estate has a financial model which is far different and complicated as compared to SaaS or restaurant economic model as there is a lot of input variable to do a depth analysis. We created the model in the following way. Project Structure The first step to creating a project structure, how much percentage of the land area will be used for houses, apartments, and rental offices. We built a chart as an input assumption.Hard Cost We evaluated the hard cost. Hard cost consists of tangible assets that are needed to complete the construction. This means that a thorough analysis of the cost that would be incurred in the project. This sheet not only provided the projection input but also provided an option for variance analysis when the project is completed. Following are the hard costs that we analyzed.Water Treatment Plant Fire/ Irrigation / recirculation pumping Site Works Storm Water Management / Sewer Community Facilities & Amenities Domestic Water Supply Shallow Utilities Internal Roadway System Trail & Pathway Network landscaping Features Offsite Costs Concrete Work Surface Work Highway Intersection Contingency Allowance Sanitary Sewer Water Mains Fire Protection Mains Lot Services Waste Water Treatment Plant Intensive capital projects like real estate have to control the cost so that the overall cost per unit would decrease. Similarly, the client needs to calculate the per-unit cost to build one house, apartment, or commercial building in order to determine the cost and the price. Oak business consultant also provided the per-unit cost analysis. Soft Cost Soft costs are the intangible cost, which includes architectural, engineering, financing, and legal fees, and other pre-and post-construction expenses. We created a detailed input chart in order to estimate the soft cost. Following are the head cost that we analyzed.Architectural Design & Building Plans Professional Services Engineered Plans Fees Payable To CountyDevelopment Cost Furthermore, after analyzing the hard and soft costs, we summarise both to determine the whole project cost.Revenue Model There are many phases of the land like houses for single-family, mixed family, duplex, apartments, and every phase will have different costing and value according to demand. We built a dynamic financial model, having an input for every phase. So that we can forecast accurate revenue.Profit and Loss Forecasting After developing the cost structure and the revenue model, we compiled the data and built a profit and loss statement. Furthermore, we also created a sheet for data, so that it would easier for the client to conduct variance analysis.
