Evaluating a Borrower’s Prospective

Lenders need the best possible information from borrowers seeking bank financing. One excellent source of information that companies can provide to banks during the loan underwriting process is prospective financial statements. These statements provide bankers with insight into the assumptions management is making to grow their business over a three to five-year time frame. Although borrowers don’t have a crystal ball, they can ensure that their assumptions pass the scrutiny of CPAs who can render an opinion on the adequacy of management’s assumptions.

The company’s outside CPA can be engaged to examine prospective financial statements which can include a forecast or projection or both for use by the bank in the underwriting process. CPAs can review management’s assumptions and ensure the reports are in the proper format to add credibility for banks.

To achieve the benefits of prospective financial statements, lenders should understand how CPAs examine these reports according to AICPA guidelines. For instance, lenders need to understand the difference between a financial forecast and a financial projection and when companies use one or the other, or both. They also need to understand how prospective financial statements relate to the company’s budget and the information that should be included in the statements.

Please join Gary Deutsch, CPA MBA, as he discusses how prospective financial statements can benefit banks in the lending process and how to ensure that the statements are properly prepared to assist with underwriting and loan approval.
