4.3 Service Business Analysis

   [Company Name]values its employees to clean well and clean smart as well as respond to the
   demands of the environment.

   [Company Name]is a part of the crime scene cleanup industry. This industry may involve a
   single blood loss event following a burglary, battery, or homicide. Companies also clean
   suicides, unattended deaths, tear gas damaged environments, and other crime and trauma
   scenes. Larger crime scenes involve terrorist attacks, mass murder scenes, and the cleanup of
   anthrax and other biochemicals. Additionally, crime scene cleanup companies may also clean
   bird and rodent infested areas.

   Crime scene cleanup companies are trained to clean up "compulsive hoarding" situations where
   the dwelling owner, over time, refuses to remove items of any kind such as trash, food, and
   animal and human waste. Crime scene cleanup is a small business activity in most cases. At
   times small businesses, such as carpet cleaning and water damage companies add crime scene
   cleanup to diversify their activities. Due to the legal and ethical complications crime scene
   cleanup is becoming either its own business entity or a complete division. Crime scene cleanup
   professionals should be trained in federal or state OSHA regulations and can provide
   documentation of proper biohazardous waste disposal.

   As simple as it may be, [Company Name]’ method of executing exceptional customer service
   has an important effect on the bottom line: People want to give their business to those who
   appreciate it. Skillful use of advertising and strong communication will bring the business the

   which [Company Name]plans to obtain funding sources in the amount of $50,000 for the
   purpose of covering rent, utilities, phone, internet, website, business license, marketing
   materials, advertising, insurance and training expenses; as well as purchasing equipment, a
   used panel van, a used trailer, personal protection gear, tools, chemicals, materials and office

   management of [Company Name]as a road map to its success. It is an indispensable tool for
   the ongoing performance and improvement of the Company, and it will be referred to often as

   financial projections remain accurate and strategies remain pertinent as the economy,
   technology, communication methods, and customer demographics change. The three year
   financial projections within this Business Plan indicate that the Company will have generated
   sufficient growth, profits, and cash to permit the Company to continue to exists and prosper.
   Evaluation of the Company's success will be an ongoing process involving the owner's monthly
   review of financial statements and other pertinent financial data.

7.3 Break-even Analysis

   The monthly break-even point is shown in the Break-Even Analysis Table below. The break-
   even analysis has been calculated on the "burn rate" of The Company. [Company Name]feels
   that this gives the investor a more accurate picture of the actual risk of the venture. The Break-
   Even Analysis Table is based on the Company's forecasted monthly expenses, cost of sales, and
   gross margins. It forecasts the average revenue (sales) level that must be achieved each
   month for the Company to break-even (show neither a profit nor a loss).

   Even though Management's desire is to reach the break-even level every month and as early in
   the month as possible, it is unrealistic to believe that the break-even point will be achieved in
   every month of the Company's existence. Management realizes that there are several factors
   that may cause monthly losses. The most common factors include:

      Periods of seasonally slow sales/business.
      Months in which annual or unusual expenses occur.
      During months following strategically planned personnel expansion where increases in
       payroll, employee benefits, and payroll taxes are not immediately offset by increased
       production, sales or profits.
      During months following strategically planned asset acquisition where increases in
       depreciation, operating expenses, and long-term loan finance charges are not immediately
       offset by increased production, sales and profits.

   Management will closely follow the Financial Statement Review section of the Financial Plan
   contained within this Business Plan by reviewing the Company's financial statements on a
   monthly basis. This is done to make certain that months without profit are the result of one of
   the factors listed above as opposed to a growing negative trend. Management will take
   immediate action to reverse the trend by reducing expenses, increasing profit margins, or
   increasing sales should it determine that sustained months without profit are the result of
   factors other than those listed above.

7.4 Projected Profit and Loss

    The following Projected Profit and Loss Table and charts illustrate [Company Name]’ sales,
    operating expenses, and profitability over the next three years. It illustrates the effects on
    profitability of increased expenses such as asset acquisition, personnel, and marketing as the
    Company expands. It also illustrates the delayed revenue (sales) growth that occurs months
    after the capital expenditures of expansion. A monthly projection for the first twelve months of
    sales, direct cost of sales, operating expenses, gross profits, tax consequences, and net profits
    after taxes is found in the appendix.

    The sales for Year 1, Year 2, and Year 3 are $258,012, $280,000, and $320,000, respectively.
    The net profit for the same period is $4,037, $15,105, and $36,953, respectively. The
