Development of the Project Plan of Finance
Pro Sports Consulting has great experience in designing projects, creating their cost and a plan of finance for that project, soliciting financial support for the project and assisting ownership in obtaining the requisite public approvals for the project along with its plan of finance.
Pro Sports Consulting assists in the development of computer models of the plan of finance including simulated sources and uses of funds, operating budgets, debt structuring, cash flow analyses, coverage ratio analyses, and other related uses of funds. These models can then be used for numerous activities including: internal decision-making, solicitation of equity, solicitation of financings, debt placements, negotiations with vendors or suppliers and public presentations.
