b. very high penalties if the lease is canceled.

 

c. restrictions on how much the leased property can be used.

 

d. much longer lease periods than for most financial leases.

 

e. maintenance of the equipment by the lessor.

 

2. Which of the following statements is most CORRECT?

 

a. Capitalizing a lease means that the firm issues equity capital in proportion to its current

 

capital structure, in an amount sufficient to support the lease payment obligation.

 

b. The fixed charges associated with a lease can be as high as, but never greater than, the

 

fixed payments associated with a loan.

 

c. Capital, or financial, leases generally provide for maintenance by the lessor.

 

d. A key difference between a capital lease and an operating lease is that with a capital

 

lease, the lease payments provide the lessor with a return of the funds invested in the

 

asset plus a return on the invested funds, whereas with an operating lease the lessor

 

depends on the residual value to realize a full return of and on the investment.

 

e. Firms that use "off balance sheet" financing, such as leasing, would show lower debt

 

ratios if the effects of their leases were reflected in their financial statements.

 

3. Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) Statement #13 requires that for an unqualified

 

audit report, financial (or capital) leases must be included in the balance sheet by reporting the

 

a. residual value as a liability.

 

b. present value of future lease payments as an asset and also showing this same amount

 

as an offsetting liability.

 

c. undiscounted sum of future lease payments as an asset and as an offsetting liability.

 

d. undiscounted sum of future lease payments, less the residual value, as an asset and as

 

an offsetting liability.

 

e. residual value as a fixed asset.

 

4. Heavy use of off-balance sheet lease financing will tend to

 

a. make a company appear less risky than it actually is because its stated debt ratio will

 

appear lower.

 

b. affect a company's cash flows but not its degree of risk.

 

c. have no effect on either cash flows or risk because the cash flows are already reflected in

 

the income statement.

 

d. affect the lessee's cash flows but only due to tax effects.

 

e. make a company appear more risky than it actually is because its stated debt ratio will be

 

increased.

5. In the lease versus buy decision, leasing is often preferable

 

a. because, generally, no down payment is required, and there are no indirect interest

 

costs.

 

b. because lease obligations do not affect the firm's risk as seen by investors.

 

c. because the lessee owns the property at the end of the least term.

 

d. because the lessee may have greater flexibility in abandoning the project in which the

 

leased property is used than if the lessee bought and owned the asset.

 

e. because it has no effect on the firm's ability to borrow to make other investments.
