The LBO course enjoyed a spirited discussion regarding the risks inherent in buy out modelling. For example, risks around cap-ex and growth assumptions (amongst other factors) in a model.
In buy out modelling we don’t want to be assuming everything will just be OK. In our LBO modelling we really don’t want to be taking the equivalent risks that these crazy-men are taking (racing down a public highway, at speed, with no helmet or protection, and no brakes, on home made trikes)! A buy out modeller would never want to be doing that!!!
