Of all the new kinds of enterprise solutions made available by the advent of the internet, one of the most disruptive, most useful and most recent has been the software as a service (SaaS) business model. SaaS is a delivery model in which a centrally hosted software is licensed to customers via a subscription plan. Any company that leases its software through a central, cloud-based system can be said to be a SaaS company.

So, if you are interested in investing on a SaaS business or you are running an operating SaaS business, this Financial Model is a flexible tool to calculate financial and operating activities (MRR, COGS, Payroll, Expenses, etc.), project customers' new subscriptions and return rates and forecast a company's growth.

The model includes assumptions and calculations of Initial Investment Costs, Paid and Organic Customers Acquisition, 2 different revenue sources (Monthly Subscriptions and Annual Enterprise License), 4 different subscription options, subscriptions upgrades & downgrades, Direct & Indirect Payroll, Operating Expenses, Fixed Assets & Depreciation, Financing through Debt & Equity and Exit Valuation assumptions in case of a potential sale of the business.

Outputs of the template include various financial reports, key SaaS metrics (CAC, ARPU, LTV, IRR, NPV, Payback), a sophisticated Dashboard analyzing business performance and an Investors' Executive Summary.

The model follows Financial Modeling Best Practices principles, is fully customizable, and has a dynamic functionality allowing users to select the desired forecasted Years (1 to 10).

Detailed instructions for the functionality of the model are included in the Excel file.
