Exercise 6-12The Flounder Inc., a manufacturer of low-sugar, low-sodium,
low-cholesterol TV dinners, would like to increase its market share in the Sunbelt. In order to do so, Flounder has decided to locate a new factory in the Panama City area. Flounder will either buy or lease a site depending upon which is more advantageous. The site location committee has narrowed down the available sites to the following three very similar buildings that will meet their needs.
Building A: Purchase for a cash price of $618,900, useful life 27 years.
Building B: Lease for 27 years with annual lease payments of $71,820 being made at the beginning of the year.
Building C: Purchase for $652,700 cash. This building is larger than needed; however, the excess space can be sublet for 27 years at a net annual rental of $6,430. Rental payments will be received at the end of each year. The Flounder Inc. has no aversion to being a landlord.
