2. Callaway Golf Co. leases telecommunication equipment. Assume the following data for equipment
leased from Photon Company. The lease term is 5 years and requires equal rental payments of $30,000
at the beginning of each year. The equipment has a fair value at the inception of the lease of $138,000, an
estimated useful life of 8 years, and no residual value. Callaway pays all executory costs directly to third
parties. Photon set the annual rental to earn a rate of return of 10%, and this fact is known to Callaway.
The lease does not transfer title or contain a bargain purchase option. How should Callaway classify this
lease?
