- They were also looking to integrate tokens in their blockchain system over which the platform will be built. So, we gave them a feasibility report on integrating tokens into their system.
The Problem with the Restaurant Management Services
- We performed market research to identify our potential target market and made estimates on our achievable market share.
- The main challenge was integrating the two types of scenarios, pre-money and post-money, into the model structure so that they could be adjusted from input tables.
- In pre-money, they were developing services one by one, and revenue generated from one service would be invested in another.
- In post-money, they were developing all the services at one time, so they needed to have additional investment for that.
- In the end, we had to provide a comparative analysis between the two scenarios to help the client make the best possible decision for its future strategies.
- Identify costs, find the exact solution and integrate it into the model structure.
- A complication for us was to give them flexibility and to keep input dynamics, which required implementing complex logic through excel formulas.
- A challenge for us was to adjust the additional investment. If it came in the middle of the business, we would have to make an adjustable model so that they only need to update values and get updated outputs
- The number of customers was changing from one service to another, so we had to keep up with that change and incorporate the feature where we could adjust the subscriber count when a subscriber upgraded from one service to another. Along with subscriber churn rate was also applied.
Solution for Restaurant Management Services
- We researched a number of restaurants worldwide and found the number of restaurants ready to shift to a new restaurant system and, in the end, what portion of the market we could capture. As a result, this restaurant management system by Oak Business Consultant is able to adapt to the changing market share percentages.
- We made a dynamic yet comparable model for two scenarios and used logical formulas to give flexibility to the client.
- We made two financial statements with different scenarios, pre-money and post-money, and compared them to analyze which one was cost-effective.
- Making the model dynamic while adding features for the revenue, how free trials will affect the revenue, and how add-on services will be beneficial for revenue. It was not easy, but our experts made it possible with their extraordinary financial expertise.
- Different types of subscriptions with different types of growth rates were calculated.
- We gave them flexibility in revenue calculation for upgrades and free trials.
Input Assumptions for Restaurant Management Services
We built two sections for input assumptions, one for pre-money and the other for post-money. The two scenarios were presented side by side so that the client could compare inputs and outputs easily. The input tab consisted of tables such as loan schedule, operating expenses, monthly employment payroll, and assumptions.
One of the most challenging parts of our research was finding out who could be our target market worldwide.
Total Available market TAM: total restaurants, food outlets worldwide
Serviceable Available Market SAM: Total restaurants that might be interested in the service
Serviceable Obtainable Market SOM: The market share that we expect to achieve.
Revenue totally depends on users. The more users we have, the more our revenue will be. Through market validation, we calculated users. We also calculated the penetration rate. Based on these inputs and calculations, we built a dynamic revenue model that takes into account all factors affecting revenue generation. This allowed us to identify areas where adjustments might be needed for increased revenue and profitability. With the help of assumptions, we calculated pre-money revenue and post-revenue.
Pre-money Financial Statements
Having calculated data in pre-money revenue analysis helped us create pre-money financial statements for each scenario. We included revenue, operating expenses, and cost of sales in the balance sheet. Similarly, we created an income statement to show total revenue and net profit or loss.
Post-Money Financial Statements
We also built post-money financial statements using dynamic formulas. These statements allowed us to easily update any input changes from the model inputs section. This ensured that our clients had the most up-to-date information about how their business would perform under different growth scenarios.
In addition to the financial statements, we created a cash flow statement that took into account the timing and amount of inflows and outflows from operations. This allowed us to identify potential funding requirements for our client’s business easily.
In this balance sheet, calculations of total assets and total liabilities can be seen.
This table shows the calculation of monthly and yearly depreciation.
We analyzed the company’s performance by performing a complete financial analysis.
It includes CAC/CLV Analysis, break-even analysis, Ratio Analysis, Company Valuation, Capitalization Table, and sensitivity analysis.
It includes the cost of acquiring new customers and retaining them. And moreover the worth of the customer to your business. We have calculated the total users and total revenue for POS and RMS.
2: Break-Even Analysis
Being an integral part of our financial analysis, this section includes the total revenue, contribution margin, and break-even sales. These metrics estimate when the company will go into profitability. It also determines how many users we need in order to achieve and maintain breakeven.
3: Ratio Analysis
When it comes to conducting a well-rounded financial analysis, our experts make sure to include the calculations of different kinds of critical ratios to measure profitability.
4: Company Valuation
We calculated the company’s Weighted Average Cost of Capital (WACC). Company valuation was performed based on discounted cash flow method to calculate NPV and IRR. We also calculated the minimum expected equity share to offer to investors. This way, they would be able to convince the investors for making the investment. Also, our pitch deck service is quite useful in this regard.
5: (1.1) Capitalization Table
It is the most important and crucial part of the financial model. We calculated the yearly Return for each founder on the basis of equity shares. And it shows how much of the investment each founder owns.
5 (1.2 ) Cash Utilization
This section summarizes how the investment will be utilized on a yearly basis. It gives an idea to the potential investors on where their money will be used and how it will help in the company’s growth.
6: Sensitivity Analysis
Sensitivity analysis helps the client get an idea of how much their profitability will be affected by the change (increase or decrease) of their customers/subscribers.
It is a critical part of our financial analysis as it helps get an estimate of how much flexibility your business has to maintain its profitability.
