Requirements for the Financial Research Project

The client required in-depth financial research services including analysis of the past ten years up until the third-quarter of 2017. The client also required variance reports comparing planned budgets with actual expenditure.

  • Churn rate

  • Revenue analysis, including products and services, costs, CAPEX, EBIDTA, and Net Income
