Sale and leaseback

The sale of a fixed asset that is then leased by the former owner from the new owner. A sale and leaseback permits a firm to withdraw its equity in an asset without giving up use of the asset. Sale and leasebacks are popular methods of raising cash by businesses that own property assets.
