The “Art of Business Planning” has just published a brand new, powerful and beautiful Excel template that is the standard template used by our experts for M&A projects.

If you are a business owner or an M&A professional, if you are selling a company or raising money, you will love this template. The template can be used to prepare a professional 3 + 1 + 5  year Business Plan, and support the preparation of commercial and financial Factbooks.

The template is driver-based and is illustrated by numerous charts. It also includes a commercial model providing a volume and sales forecast along multiple dimensions:

  • by product: product #1, #2, #3, #4
  • by product ‘component’: hardware, software, service
  • by sales channel: direct sales, indirect sales.

A split by geography can easily be added, as well as further dimensions as necessary.

The template is currently populated with figures that illustrate an IoT business, but it can be used for any type of business, whether hardware-focused, software/SaaS-focused, or service-focused.
