Lease Transaction

Eddy leased equipment to Hoyle Company on May 1, 2008. At that time the collectibility of the minimum lease payments was not reasonably predictable. The lease expires on May 1, 2009. Hoyle could have bought the equipment from Eddy for $3,200,000 instead of leasing it. Eddy's accounting records showed a book value for the equipment on May 1, 2008, of $2,800,000. Eddy's depreciation on the equipment in 2008 was $360,000. During 2008, Hoyle paid $720,000 in rentals to Eddy for the 8-month period. Eddy incurred maintenance and other related costs under the terms of the lease of $64,000 in 2008. After the lease with Hoyle expires, Eddy will lease the equipment to another company for two years.
