Abstract
Requiring many financial institutions to hold a risk-adjusted amount of capital when granting funds, the Basel II framework implies a risk dependent cost of capital for borrowing firms from year-end 2006 onwards. This novel policy of allocating capital creates and intensifies new challenges for manufacturing companies in innovative and capital intensive branches. In this regard, banks and other financial institutions increasingly rely on alternative financial instruments such as leasing. Against this background, firms should view the life cycle of manufacturing equipment from the lessor's perspective. In doing so, they will be able to finance their investments at lower costs. Focusing on the mechanical and plant engineering industry, this paper intends to present the resulting perceptions of lenders, arguing that if firms in need of capital take these perceptions into account in their planning processes, they can benefit in various ways from this situation, from decreased life cycle costs of capital assets to improved key financial figures.
