Profitability KPIs
EBIT. Earnings before interest and tax (EBIT) is also known as operating income. It is a profitability measure that shows the difference between a company's revenues and operating expenses, including the cost of sales, interest on loans, and taxes. This calculation shows the company's ability to generate profits and, therefore, this metric is also named as operating earnings or operating profit.

It helps track all your relevant finance key performance indicators (KPIs), assures effective cash management, and enables financial management to track expenses, sales, and profits in detail to meet and outperform a department or company's financial objectives.

Cap Table
In our Software Development Finance Projection, a Capitalization table, or Cap table is a spreadsheet critical for start-ups that shows the company's ownership structure. It lists your company's shares and options, if any. It also shows the prices your investors have paid for these shares and each investor's percentage of ownership in the company.

Performance KPIs
Sales growth year-to-date. Every entrepreneur wants to see the company grow month-over-month. In some industries, sales depend on the season or other external factors. The sales growth year-to-date metric shows the pace at which the company's sales revenue increases or decreases.

Users can monitor sales volumes over various periods – daily, weekly, monthly, or yearly. Sales growth metric helps to manage sales growth goals in the form of a percentage of last month's sales volume or others. If the company has several sales teams, the management can monitor this metric for each team separately. It will help to monitor better each team's achievements.

Break Even
A break even excel tab in this Financial Model In Excel shows the break even formula excel. This calculation illustrates when your company is supposed to become profitable. In other words, a break even excel indicates when the company's overall revenues exceed its expenses.

The financial graphs in this Software Development Three Statement Financial Model help measure the company's financial health showing the operating cash flows' analysis, return on investment, debt to equity ratio, liquidity ratios, and other relevant financial information. Business owners can use these operational performance graphs both for internal and external purposes.

Such an approach will improve the financial management efficiency of the company. Business owners can also use these charts and graphs for the presentations for potential investors and bankers. The operational performance graphs have all the necessary pre-built formulas, and they are fully formatted. So, the users can just print out them and bring for the meeting with investors.

Benchmarks
Financial Projection benchmark tab calculates the company's key performance indicators, either business or financial, and finds an industry-wide average as a comparison. The industry average metrics are then used to determine the relative value for benchmarking analysis.

Financial benchmarks are essential for the financial planning of the companies, especially for start-ups. These studies help companies determine the 'best practice' companies within the industry and compare their own financial results with these best practices. It is a useful financial and strategic management tool.
