Suppose Clorox can lease a new computer data processing system for $975,000 per year for five years. Alternatively, it can purchase the

years.

b. Suppose that if Clorox buys the equipment, it will use accelerated depreciation for tax purposes. Specifically, suppose it can expense
20% of the purchase price immediately and can take depreciation deductions equal to 32%, 19.2%, 11.52%, 11.52%, and 5.76% of
the purchase price over the next five years. Compare leasing with purchase in this case.

Suppose Netflix is considering the purchase of computer servers and network infrastructure to facilitate its move into video-on-demand services. In total, it
will purchase $48 million in new equipment. This equipment will qualify for accelerated depreciation: 20% can be expensed immediately, followed by 32%,
19.2%, 11.52%, 11.52%, and 5.76% over the next five years. However, because of the firms substantial loss carryforwards, Netflix estimates its marginal
tax rate to be 10% over the next five years, so it will get very little tax benefit from the depreciation expenses. Thus Netflix considers leasing the equipment
instead. Suppose Netflix and the lessor face the same 8% borrowing rate, but the lessor has a 35% tax rate. For the purpose of this question, assume the
equipment is worthless after 5 years, the lease term is 5 years, and the lease qualifies as a true tax lease.
