We sell the majority of our products and services under bundled lease arrangements, in which our customers pay a monthly amount for the equipment, maintenance, services, supplies and financing over the course of the lease agreement. These arrangements are beneficial to our customers and to us since, in addition to customers receiving a bundled offering, these arrangements allow us to maintain the customer relationship for future sales of equipment and services.
We analyze these arrangements to determine whether the equipment component meets certain accounting requirements such that the equipment fair value should be recorded as a sale at lease inception, that is, a sales-type lease. We allocate the remaining portion of the monthly minimum payments to the various elements of the lease based on fair value – service, maintenance, supplies and financing – that we generally recognize over the term of the lease agreement, and that we report as “post sale revenue.” In those arrangements that do not qualify as sales-type leases, we recognize revenue over the term of the lease agreement, whether rental or operating lease, and report it in post sale revenue. Our accounting policies for revenue recognition for leases and bundled arrangements are included in Note 1 – Summary of Significant Accounting Policies in the Consolidated Financial Statements in this 2009 Annual Report.
