Floater with gearing/factor

Hi,
if we have a floater referencing the 3M EURIBOR and the floater has the coupon formula: Factor * 3M EURIBOR + Spread, is it then correct to use just calculate the forward rate, multiply this by the factor and add the spread? Or does one need more sophisticated models for this?

Generally yes but is there any optionality in your floater? Some hidden ones such as coupon floor or ceiling also count

I would be interested in both:
- a plain vanilla floater with such formula
- a floater with such formula having a cap and a floor
