Strategic operating modelling

Work description:
The Spanish company that manages the concession on most Spanish ports required a strategic model with operating functionality to report to shareholders and to refinance corporate and project finance deals secured in the past.

Lazuli Solutions built a multi-company strategic operating model with long-term forecast seeded by historic actuals.


We don’t doubt that the savvy financier has questions, so we try to answer these.

What is the cost of a Lazuli e-commerce model?

Our models contain part-template and part bespoke elements so are very well priced.

Are these models reusable?

Yes, for the most part they are.   We can explain this in more detail.

Will the model allow me to find the most optimised solutions?

Yes, one of the key strengths of our models is the organised and well-structured commercially correct cash flow waterfall.

Will the potential investors doubt the model?

No, our models are bankable.   More than that, we like to think they are at the very top of what investors will have seen.
