Setting up a budget can be as simple as drawing out a budget worksheet with columns allocated to start-up costs (if you are launching a business) and monthly operating expenses. Depending on your type of business, expenses include items like business equipment, office supplies, inventory, shipping costs, furniture, licenses and permits, leases, utility costs, insurance, legal and accounting fees, salaries, travel and transportation costs, entertainment, benefits and advertising and marketing costs.
Dave times the initial payment to coincide with the project start date, which will cover foundation materials, site excavation, and pile drilling costs. The other two payments are timed to fall 6 months after the completion of Phases 2 and 3, which are the bridge structure building, and construction of he roadway and toll facilities.
When coming to the share of future toll revenues, Dave gets creative. The company has never done this before and both the toll fares and actual volume of traffic over the bridge are unknown. In a separate tab in his cash flow worksheet, Dave creates two grids. The first is a range of car traffic volumes from 10,000 to 30,000 cars per day (the volume range used by the engineers to build the bridge). He applies a growth rate multiplier and extends the grid to the right for 10 years, multiplying each time step by a growth multiplier. He then builds a similar grid of toll fees and toll growth rates and arrays them to the right for 10 years. Finally, Dave uses his Excel statistical analysis add-in to generate a probability distribution of toll revenues for each year. Dave creates 5 scenarios based on the mean toll revenue, with revenues varying plus and minus one and two standard deviations to get 5 estimated cash flow paths.
