Financial organizations extend credit to borrowers when the borrowers show the ability to repay the loans extended. Ideally, a request for a five-year loan should be supported by a 5-year cash flow projection, and a request for a seasonal line of credit should be supported by a 12-month cash flow projection to identify when the borrower is likely to borrow and when the borrower can repay the line of credit in full.
One of the most basic analytical and underwriting tools a banker must have is the ability to determine whether a borrower can repay its short-term borrowings based on the financial information available.
