• ## Question

Is there a sample/template for creating this formula?

No sample.  It would be done on a case by case basis during negotiations.  Let's take an example and show you how it might look.  A contractor takes out a \$10,000 loan to buy a machine that she leases to the DOD.  She has a \$100 origination fee and 300 dollar early repayment fee.  So loan fees are \$400.  She pays \$100 a month in interest and \$50 a month to maintain the machine.  It is leased for \$500 a month.  So reasonably if we bought out the contract on day 1 of the contract we should pay all the costs.  But if we buy it out in 6 months it would be less as the contractor hasd covered 6 months of payments.  So the formula would might look something like this if we agree on a 60% factor.

Buyout cost = Purchase price - factor*monthly lease*number of months paid + loan fees.

or with numbers BC= 10,000 - 0.6*500*6 +400

= 10,000 - 1800 + 400

= 8600

so you would expect to pay the full purchase and loan fee costs on day 1 and only 82.69% of the day 1 cost after 6 months of operation.
