Stage 3 (2020) "Power-Up Builders"

This is a case from the Financial Modeling World Cup 2020, Stage 3 (Nov 20-23) competition. It can be used to expand your knowledge of financial modeling and train for future FMWC Stages.

Case description:

To create a high-level forecast for Power-Up Builders, Inc. (PUB) to determine whether the company can finance its plan to increase sales four times in 2021, and to design a flexible financial model that can instantly recalculate PUB’s financial projections according to different contract combinations.

PUB’s completed contracts for 2020 amounted to 50 million Evergreen Dollars (EGD). However, the company now has contracts for almost 200 million EGD for 2021, which would require a fast pace of growth. PUB must decide whether to attract investor financing or grow at a slower pace to finance this expansion, as bankruptcy is inevitable otherwise. The CEO is reluctant to attract investor money, so a financial model is needed to determine if PUB can finance the expansion through its own resources.
