Question: Lee Industries and Lor Inc enter into an agreement that

Lee Industries and Lor Inc. enter into an agreement that requires Lor Inc. to build three diesel-electric engines to Lee’s specifications. Both Lee and Lor follow private enterprise GAAP. Upon completion of the engines, Lee has agreed to lease them for a period of 10 years and to assume all costs and risks of ownership. The lease is non-cancellable, becomes effective on January 1, 2011, and requires annual rental payments of $620,956 each January 1, starting January 1, 2011.
Lee’s incremental borrowing rate is 10%, and the implicit interest rate used by Lor Inc. is 8% and is known to Lee.
The total cost of building the three engines is $3.9 million. The engines’ economic life is estimated to be 10 years, with residual value expected to be zero. Lee depreciates similar equipment on a straight-line basis. At the end of the lease, Lee assumes title to the engines. Collectibility of the lease payments is reasonably certain and there are no uncertainties about unreimbursable lessor costs.
