leases. If an analyst does not do this additional analysis there is a good chance that the analyst will
be misled as to the relative performance of the companies. The more leases that the companies have
on their books, the more this difference between operating leases and capital leases could affect the
analysis of the companies. A review of “offbalance sheet financing” is always a prudent step in
financial analysis. P11–14
a. The initial balance sheet value of the equipment and the initial leasehold obligation both equal the present
value of the lease payments. This amount can be determined in the following ways.
Present value of lease payments = FMV of equipment
= $119,782 or
Present value of lease payments P11–14 Concluded = Present value of lease payments
= $30,000 Present value of an ordinary annuity
factor for i = 8% and n = 5
= $30,000 3.99271 (from Table 5 in Appendix A)

b Leasehold Obligation
= Leasehold Obligation at Beginning of the Period – ($30,000 Lease Payment – Interest Expense for the Period)
c Interest Expense = Leasehold Obligation at Beginning of the Period 8%

e Total has penny discrepancy due to rounding to even cents throughout lease term. b. Total Rent Expense = Annual Rent Payments Number of Years of the Lease
= $30,000 5 years
= $150,000 c. If the lease is treated as a capital lease, total expenses would be $150,000 [from part (a)]. If the lease is
treated as an operating lease, total expenses would still be $150,000 [from part (b)]. Although total
expenses would be the same under either approach, different expense a...
