CASE 1 (20 points)
You work for Cigna hospitals that are contemplating leasing a diagnostic scanner (leasing is very common practice with expensive, high-tech equipment). The scanner costs €4,800,000, and it would be depreciated straight-line to zero over four years. Because of the short cycle of the technological equipment, the scanner will be completely valueless in four years. You can lease it for €1,430,000 per year for four years at a borrowing interest rate of 8% – ignore taxes for the purpose of this exercise.
