bargain purchase option



Stipulation in a lease agreement that gives a lessee the right to purchase the leased asset at the end of the lease term, at a cost substantially lower than its estimated fair market value at that time. According to the Financial Accounting Standards Board, if a non-cancelable lease has a bargain-purchase option, it must be classified as a capital lease.
