Cashflow modeling and scenario planning in uncertain environments

About this webinar

Cash flow management has never been more important — In this webinar, we will share our experience on two subjects of importance to finance leaders at this time; dealing with uncertainty and managing cash flow and liquidity during the crisis.

In times of uncertainty, scenario analysis and planning are critical tools. COVID-19 presents an extraordinary level of uncertainty. As a novel virus, many specific factors are not well understood, including transmission, severity and mortality rates. Will social distancing slow the spread? Will our existing health facilities be able to respond? What is the ultimate duration of the virus and related impacts (e.g. economic)? Many of us are tasked with estimating and taking action in response to the pandemic. Whether you are evaluating and projecting financial results, estimating cash flow and requirements, or estimating economic impact… scenario analysis is an essential tool. Scenario planning is not just a finance tool; it is a tool that can assist all business leaders in dealing with uncertainty. 

One of the most immediate challenges confronting finance organizations is estimating the impact on liquidity and future cash flows under dynamic and uncertain conditions. How will the crisis impact revenues and cash receipts? What are our projected cash outlays? How long will our cash reserve last? What other sources of cash and liquidity are available? What progressive actions should we take if the crisis continues?
