(Updates of descriptive and statistical data are accessible from other webpages of www.financeman.org )
The lists of project reports for products / services listed on FINANCEMAN ASSOCIAES’ Website
are based on desk survey. The Reports provide basic pre-investment information required by
the promoters of small and medium enterprises / (MSMEs / START-UPs). The Reports answer the FAQs
(Frequently Asked Questions) from entrepreneurs on different aspects of new projects.
from banks and financial institutions. Therefore, those who set up businesses and industries
with own resources may think that they do not need project reports. This is not correct.
Starting a new business unit with a Project Report is like doing it with a Blue Print. Promoters
can know within how many years the investment will be paid back (Pay-back Period).
The project reports (with financial projections) contain 5-year estimates regarding income,
expenses and profits for each year, cash inflows and outflows for each year, balance sheet
of liabilities and assets at the end of each year and profitability ratios (ROI, ROS, ROE and IRR)
and repayment schedules of working capital and long-term loans, if any taken.
The promoters can use the estimates given in the project reports as standards
to compare with actual performance and use negative variations to take corrective steps.
In contrast, the promoters starting business ventures without project reports are virtually
jumping in the dark without any clue to the outcomes. They do not have any measuring rods
to analyse the performance. In the emerging globally competitive business environment,
entrepreneurs dare not launch new businesses or expansion and diversification projects
without preparing Project Reports!
of full operation are shown in brackets at the end of project names. The project cost represents the
estimate of total investment required for a full year of operations after commissioning the project.
The estimates of total investments should not discourage the promoters of START-UPs.
The estimates of project cost or total investment should instill a sense of realism in place of an
otherwise euphoric or dumb-founded feeling among the promoters of new projects.
The promoters can re-schedule the projects in phases or use just-in-time management
techniques to cut down working capital requirements. By restricting working capital to
one month’s requirement and by re-working the figures, the amount of working
capital margin to be included in project cost or total investment may be brought down.
With these steps, the promoters will be able to reduce amounts of funds mobilization
and utilization and bring down interest expenses. The proportions of Fixed Capital (FC) and
Working Capital (WC) in the Total Project Cost/Total Investment are given in percentages,
within brackets, at end of projects names.
The following categories of people will definitely require project reports:
i. PICs (as Entrepreneurs, Entrepreneurs and promoters),
ii. Financiers (Business Associates, Financial Institutions and Banks),
iii. Chartered and Cost / Management Accountants / Financial Analysts,
iv. Buyers & Vendors of fixed & floating assets, and
