Who Leases Equipment?
Eight out of ten American companies lease all or some of their equipment. Each year more companies, particularly small companies, choose to procure new productive equipment through leases rather than loans. Companies that lease tend to be smaller, growth and technology oriented organizations. According to the Equipment Leasing Association, leasing continues to be the most widely used method of asset-based financing in the U.S., accounting for approximately one-third of the external financing of capital investment.
