This second article in our introductory series on equipment financing provides examples of the different options and features CFOs consider in different types of lease transactions. As noted in the article, the more flexibility a CFO can have, the better. The right equipment leasing arrangement can help you to preserve cash or credit lines, manage operational and financial risk, and gain strategic flexibility for your company.
For this series of short articles, CFO Research interviewed finance officers at mid-sized companies in a range of industries, as well as subject matter experts from the sponsor of the series, GE Capital. The series can serve as an introduction to “best practices” in equipment leasing and financing.
