Question 1:

Craxton Engineering will either purchase or lease a new \$756,000 fabricator. If purchased, the fabricator will be depreciated on a straight-line basis over 7 years.

Craxton can lease the fabricator for \$130,000 per year for 7 years. Craxton's tax rate is 35%. (Assume the fabricator has no residual value at the end of the 7 years.)

a) What are the free cash flow consequences of buying the fabricator if the lease is a true tax lease?

b) What are the free cash flow consequences of leasing the fabricator if the lease is a true tax lease?

c) What are the incremental free cash flows of leasing versus buying?

Question 2:

Riverton Mining plans to purchase or lease \$220,000 worth of excavation equipment. If purchased, the equipment will be depreciated on a straight-line basis over 5 years, after which it will be worthless. If leased, the annual lease payments will be \$55,000 per year for 5 years.

Assume Riverton's borrowing cost is 8%, its tax rate is 35%, and the lease qualifies as a true tax lease.

a) If Riverton purchases the equipment, what is the amount of the lease-equivalent loan?

b) Is Riverton better off leasing the equipment or financing the purchase using the lease equivalent loan?

c) What is the effective after-tax lease borrowing rate? How does this compare to Riverton's actual after-tax borrowing rate?
