A sample financial analysis is a document prepared by trained professionals within a company, or sometimes hired extrinsically, which outlines whether a project or a business deal is viable and financially profitable or not. Certain analytical tools are used in this exercise and this document is important as often the decision to proceed is dependent on it.
