Understanding Your Cash Flow is 
Key to Growing Your Business!
Guest Blog By: Sherrie McGill, Vice President of Stearns Bank, N.A.

Cash is king! And, the cash flow and performance of your business should be measured by your Profit and Loss (P&L) Statement in conjunction with your Balance Sheet (B/S). It is very possible for a highly profitable company to be in critical need of cash.


As a business owner, understanding your P&L is essential to increasing your profitability and growing your business. Your P&L will identify your successes and where there is room for improvement. A P&L statement tracks performance and detects drops in sales, income and margins or spikes in expenses. Monthly review of your P&L ensures that the causes of these drops and spikes are identified so adjustments can be made immediately and better preparation for future months is implemented to bring growth and top performance. Click Here to Read Full Article

Business Valuation: 
An Introduction to Pre/Post Money Valuation
Exclusive partnership content powered byAxial

This article originally appeared on Axial's Forum

The pre-money valuation of a company is simply the value of the company before an equity investment is made. The post-money valuation is the pre-money valuation plus the equity investment.

Although it might seem like a quick equation, the difference of pre-money and post-money valuations can prove critical as a business scales and receives new investors. For example, suppose you and a partner start a company. You initially issue 1,000,000 shares of stock and divide them equally between you and your partner. After some initial success, you decide you need additional capital. An investor states they are willing to invest $5 million at a post-money valuation of $15 million, giving an implied pre-money valuation of $10 million. Click here to continue reading
