Leasing: The Fine Print Implications (OM)

Equipment leasing can have a significant impact on the firm’s finances if the leases are negotiated aggressively. Leasing information technology equipment is particularly advantageous because firms can benefit from cutting-edge equipment, and at the same time hedge against obsolescence and conserve cash. Join this program to examine the fine print in lease contracts and the reasons firms deliberate over the lease vs. buy decision for office and technology equipment.

Learning objectives:

  • Identify three contract sections that always increase lease spending unless negotiated
  • Discuss how the lease request for proposal (RFP) process will save time and money
  • Examine the traditional economic comparisons and new financial tools essential to the lease vs. buy decision


Mary A. Redmond, founder of Independent Lease Review Inc., has been negotiating leases for the past 21 years. Redmond speaks, writes, and conducts seminars on leasing and negotiations. She is the author of The LeaseSpeak™ System: Your Guide to Saving Money on Leases.
