Question

Labron Industries and Ewing Inc. enter into an agreement that requires Ewing Inc. to build three diesel-electric engines to Labron’s specifications. Upon completion of the engines, Labron has agreed to lease them for a period of 10 years and to assume all costs and risks of ownership. The lease is non-cancelable, becomes effective on January 1, 2011, and requires annual rental payments of $413,971 each January 1, starting January 1, 2011. Labron’s incremental borrowing rate is 10%. The implicit interest rate used by Ewing Inc. and known to Labron is 8%. The total cost of building the three engines is $2,600,000. The economic life of the engines is estimated to be 10 years, with residual value set at zero. Labron depreciates similar equipment on a straight-line basis. At the end of the lease, Labron assumes title to the engines.
