IBM Global Financing Supports New Generation of Power Systems with Power Financing Offerings

Offerings to make it easier for clients to acquire newest Power Server

ARMONK, N.Y. - 02 Apr 2008: IBM Global Financing, the lending and leasing business segment of IBM (NYSE: IBM) today announced a new package of financing offerings to support clients seeking to acquire products from the new IBM Power Systems product line, which unifies the IBM System i and System p server lines.

The Power financing package unifies IGF offerings to help clients take advantage of the new Power family with:

  • The Economic Stimulus Advantage offering so that US clients can reduce monthly payments or defer lease payments for the first three months.

“In today's economic environment, where concerns about the availability of credit may be an issue, our package of Power financing solutions will help clients access the new Power technology at competitive rates and terms,” said John Callies, general manager of IBM Global Financing. “But more importantly, it helps our clients better manage their cash flow, and address the efficient management of their technology assets throughout the technology lifecycle.”

Additionally, IGF brings unique financing capabilities to clients considering migration or consolidation projects, including asset takeout and buyback opportunities for IBM and non-IBM equipment, total solution financing (IBM and OEM Hardware/Software/Services) and large project financing to help clients build upfront and ongoing costs of investment into their existing budget structures. The expanded Power financing offerings also build upon existing IGF offerings and programs like the recently announced Economic Stimulus Advantage offering, which passes along tax and depreciation benefits to US customers in 2008.

The new unified Power Systems are being refreshed from top-to-bottom with advanced POWER6TM, processors to deliver 2-3X the performance per core of leading competitors. The new unified servers will provide greater resiliency and higher availability on common systems and are specially designed for virtualization, leveraging IBM PowerVMTM.
