Recent Updates: Added new logic for length of time vehicle is on lot per type, added 3-statement modeling logic (Income Statement, Cash Flow Statement, Balance Sheet), added a cap table, and built all new visualizations.
This is a high level general model for used car lots / dealerships. The logic was designed for a quick 5-year financial forecast and minimum equity requirements. There are exit assumptions as well as startup funding sources that include traditional debt. Leverage and unleveraged IRR will be an output.
There is some logic surrounding the amount of inventory that is purchased ahead of time. The cash flow takes into account this difference in cash and non-cash items when being calculated. After the initial inventory runs out from startup costs, the cost of goods sold are assumed to be just-in-time.
