Leasing has been a traditional method of financing for all types of equipment. Our clients have focused on the leasing of big-ticket assets in the range of $10 million to $1 billion, including:
- Rail Fleets
- Manufacturing equipment
Clients optimize equipment leases subject to a wide range of considerations, including rent structuring techniques, equity and debt mix, debt repayment, IRS true lease guidelines, FAS 13 reporting, and lessor return requirements. Clients with portfolios of completed leases use ABC to maintain, analyze, and price their portfolios, and to assess the impact of tax law changes.
The complexity of the structures has required all parties to the transactions to use ABC, including equity investors, lenders, equipment operators, deal arrangers, and financial advisors.
