It addresses the technical challenges as well as the analytical approaches to projecting investments in fixed assets. Starting with an introduction into maintenance and growth capex forecasting, the webinar goes on by highlighting the interactions with other components of cash flows, with explanations on how to combine the forecasts with other financials and how to proceed the long-run projections.
