Leasing offers companies the benefit of acquiring the additional funds that they need to finance capital expenditures. Similar to a long-term rental agreement, a lease is an agreement wherein the lender or the “lessor” lends the borrower or the “lessee” an agreed upon asset to be used for a fixed period of time in exchange for a pre-determined series of payments.
Depending upon the terms of the agreement, at the end of the lease term, the lessee can either purchase the asset for the equipments then fair market value; renew the lease and continue to use the equipment; return the equipment to the lessor with no further obligation; or upgrade to newer advanced technology.
Statistics indicate that leasing accounts for almost 30% of all capital expenditures in the United States with approximately 80% of all companies in the U.S. availing of some form or the other of leasing to fund their capital expenditures.
One of the biggest benefits of leasing is that a lease can be customized to meet the specific requirements of the customer with low fixed payments throughout the life of the lease term.
Lessees run the gamut from middle market companies to giant, multinational conglomerates. The industries that benefit from the flexibility leasing offers are just as diverse and can range from group medical practices, transportation and mining to telecommunications and diversified manufacturing. The types of equipment being leased are equally diverse.
