What is a Sale-Leaseback?


A financial transaction where one sells an asset and leases it back for the long-term. The purpose of the transaction is to free up the original owner’s capital while allowing the owner to retain possession and use of the property. As a corporate treasury tool, a sale-leaseback takes the place of the debt and equity capital that a company would otherwise require to finance its real estate.
