CHAPTER 21 LEASING Solutions to Odd-Numbered Questions and Problems NOTE: All end of chapter problems were solved using a spreadsheet. Many problems require multiple steps. Due to space and readability constraints, when these intermediate steps are included in this solutions manual, rounding may appear to have occurred. However, the final answer for each problem is found without rounding during any step in the problem. Basic 1. We will calculate cash flows from the depreciation tax shield first. The depreciation tax shield is: Depreciation tax shield = (\$3,000,000/4)(.35) = \$262,500 The aftertax cost of the lease payments will be: Aftertax lease payment = (\$895,000)(1 – .35) = \$581,750 So, the total cash flows from leasing are: OCF = \$262,500 + 581,750 = \$844,250 The aftertax cost of debt is: Aftertax debt cost = .08(1 – .35) = .052 Using all of this information, we can calculate the NAL as: NAL = \$3,000,000 – \$844,250(PVIFA 5.20%,4 ) = \$20,187.17 The NAL is positive so you should lease. 3. To find the maximum lease payment that would satisfy both the lessor and the lessee, we need to find the payment that makes the NAL equal to zero. Using the NAL equation and solving for the OCF, we find: NAL = 0 = \$3,000,000 – OCF(PVIFA 5.20%,4 ) OCF = \$849,969.49 The OCF for this lease is composed of the depreciation tax shield cash flow, as well as the aftertax lease payment. Subtracting out the depreciation tax shield cash flow we calculated earlier, we find:

Aftertax lease payment = \$849,969.49 – 262,500 = \$587,469.49 Since this is the aftertax lease payment, we can now calculate the breakeven pretax lease payment as: Breakeven lease payment = \$587,469.49/(1 – .35) = \$903,799.22 5. We already calculated the breakeven lease payment for the lessor in Problem 3. Since the assumption about the lessor concerning the tax rate have not changed. So, the lessor breaks even with a payment of \$903,799.22. For the lessee, we need to calculate the breakeven lease payment which results in a zero NAL. Using the assumptions in Problem 4, we find: NAL = 0 = \$3,000,000 – PMT(PVIFA 8%,4 ) PMT = \$905,762.41 So, the range of lease payments that would satisfy both the lessee and the lessor are: Total payment range = \$903,799.22 to \$905,762.41 7. We will calculate cash flows from the depreciation tax shield first. The depreciation tax shield is: Depreciation tax shield = (\$350,000/5)(.35) = \$24,500

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
