Feasibility Studies

A feasibility study is an analysis of all technical, market, financial and other factors that define the success or failure of an investment or project. 

At Navigator Consulting, feasibility studies are indistinguishable from business plans: we refer to the two services interchangeably. 

We specialise in the development of comprehensive feasibility studies linked to dynamic financial models and forecasts.

Our feasibility studies are used by project sponsors and corporate owners as well as financing organisations to understand the medium- to long-term impact of specific investments, such as:

  • Entering a new market or country; 

  • Launching a new service or product; 

  • Increasing factory or product capacity; 

  • Buying out a competitor or other market actor. 

 

Our standard approach is to supplement the feasibility study with a 5 or 10-year dynamic financial forecast, including profit/loss, balance sheet, cash flow and sensitivity analysis model.

Our feasibility study approach integrates stakeholder priorities and requirements, but can also be combined as an adjunct to our due diligence process. Navigator Consulting's due diligence process is used to identity market risks and potential, which are translated into specific sensitivities (e.g. pricing, production costs, raw material costs, inflation, etc.) which can be used in the financial model and plan.

Typical feasibility study structure includes:

  • Corporate Objectives & Strategy

  • Market Analysis

  • Operations Analysis

  • Executive Team Analysis

  • Investment Project Review

  • Investment Plan and Implementation Schedule

  • Financial Forecast

  • Risk Analysis & Mitigation
