Integrated Financial Statements
  • Anaplan’s Long Range Planning App uses fully connected financial statements to ensure that data flows seamlessly between the income statement, balance sheet, and cash flow statement. Integrated financial statements help ensure a single-source truth for financial data.
Revenue & Expense Planning
  • Beginning with historical data, use the revenue and expense planning feature to project future product sales as well as expenses. Manipulate year-over-year growth rates, define product margins, as well as plan operating expenses using different methodologies.
Capital Expenditure Planning
  • Use the CAPEX feature of Anaplan’s Long Range Planning App to assess how planned or potential projects will affect your firm’s bottom line. Set base capex spend as a % of revenue and then overlay incremental capex projects to capture all your capex related spend as well as depreciation. Capital project expense, asset category, and useful life will help you determine the net impact of each individual project and determine which projects to fund.
Liquidity Management
  • Develop a strategy to optimize your liquidity and give you more visibility and control over your cash forecasting. Define minimum cash balances and interest rates on a revolver to effectively and efficiently plan your cash position and interest expenses.
Debt Scheduling
  • The debt schedule feature allows you to enter details about various debt instruments to determine which leverage method will best suit the company goals. A summary of all debt instruments helps to show how debt will affect the long-term cash flow and working capital of the firm.
Merger & Acquisition Modeling
  • Mergers and acquisitions are a common way for businesses to meet financial and operational goals over time. By inputting target company financials and setting transaction assumptions, the M&A function of Anaplan’s Long Range Planning App can show the resulting financials of the post-M&A company.
  • Modeling the effects of all of the aforementioned business activities will have on the firm’s financial metrics is an important step in determining how analysts and investors might react to the firm’s long range planning decisions.
Macroeconomic Indicators
  • Anaplan’s Long Range Planning App allows you to set macroeconomic assumptions for inflation and tax rates. Changes in the inflation rate over time directly affect input costs for a firm, and must be modeled to enable margin discipline. Tax rate modeling will help forecast the tax liability for future years based on changes in tax rates as well as strategy.
