Purchase Options

A purchase option at the end of a lease allows companies more flexibility to accommodate any changes to their circumstances over the term of the lease. It gives them the opportunity to choose at the end of the lease term to purchase the equipment, renew the lease, or return the equipment. For more information, please listen to our podcasts, Purchase Options and Benefits of Leasing.

American Packaging Capital, Inc. offers four Purchase Options to help companies meet their equipment needs, business goals, and cash flow requirements:

5%, 10%, and $1.00 Fixed-Price Purchase Options

5% Purchase Option:

Our most popular option. The lessee has the option at the end of the lease term to purchase the equipment for 5% of the original equipment cost. It combines low monthly payments with a modestly sized fixed-price purchase option.

10% Purchase Option:

The lessee has the option at the end of the lease term to purchase the equipment for 10% of the original equipment cost. Among the three fixed-price purchase options we offer, this one provides the lowest monthly payments.

$1.00 Purchase Option:

The lessee has the option at the end of the lease term to purchase the equipment for $1.00.

The 5%, 10%, and $1.00 purchase options are an attractive choice for companies wanting the tax benefits of ownership or expect the equipment residual value to be high.

  • Fixed, predictable monthly payments.
  • Preserves cash flow and bank lines of credit for operations, real estate, or other capital expenditures.
  • Can greatly reduce the Cost Recovery Period for equipment.

Fair Market Value Purchase Option

The lessee has the option at the end of the lease term to purchase the equipment for its Fair Market Value. This can be an attractive option for customers who want to use the equipment without ownership.

  • Fixed, predictable monthly payments.
  • Preserves cash flow and bank lines of credit for operations, real estate, or other capital expenditures.
  • Lease payments are generally lower than all other purchase options.
