BASIC INFORMATION SECTION
Welcome to this video. After the overview of the ARGUS Portfolio Model video, we will go through the model section by section. In this video, we will cover the basic model information section on the top left of the Input tab. Before we jump into it, I would like to introduce the overall structure of the model. As a regular user, I only need to input my assumptions in the input tab. In very rare cases, I might hardcode something into other tabs.
Let’s go back to the basic model information section. We see the closing date, holding period, deal name, and sale date in this section.
I will type October 1st, 2021. This is the date when the asset is to be acquired and the transaction is to be completed. Let’s go to the Combined Monthly Cash Flow Summary tab. I can see the first date that shows up is October 2021. This date is also the start date of our projection. Now we are going to cover one of the most important inputs in the model – the holding period. The holding period is the time period between the date you buy the asset and the date you sell it. The model is designed to have a maximum holding period of 20 years. The holding period will depend on the last sale time we will input in the disposition section.
I input ABC Portfolio for the deal name. The sale date is calculated based on the closing date and the holding period. It will display properly after we fill in disposition assumptions.
