Overview

A mid-size mining company with operations in both Australia and Africa.

Business Challenge

A-Cap wanted to raise funds from investors and therefore required a financial model to provide projected results over the life of the project.

The company had already engaged a mining services company to produce most of the technical data required for the model but did not have the expertise internally to produce the model.

How Access Analytic Helped

We worked with the CFO to develop a robust, user-friendly financial model that also provided flexibility and the visualisations required to fully understand the financial implications of the project.

The financial model provided analysis and commentary about each of the key risk areas in the project and also included outputs to show the African government the economic and social benefits that the project would generate.

Lastly, we independently audited the model we had produced to provide assurance.

Business Benefits

  • A robust financial model that could be used to test various assumptions and analyse the results. This provided the Board with the information they needed to confidently make their decision regarding the project.
  • Because the model was constructed by Access Analytic, there was minimal impact on the CFO’s time. This allowed him to continue working on other tasks and projects.
  • A professional model with greater functionality and robustness than could be developed internally, that was developed in less time and with less impact on existing resources.
