An agreement whereby the lessee has the option, at the end of the primary lease term, to either extend the term of the lease or purchase the asset; should lessees choose to extend the term, they have no purchase option later; the present value of the extended rent usually equals the value of the option price. (Leasing in Canada [Third Edition], Ralph Selby, FCA, Butterworths, 1999)
