How to make a reverse bend in a sheet metal box

I need to bend sheet metal in a box-like shape, but with one flap in the reverse direction as shown below:

Currently I only have a simple flat brake, however, I don't see how to do this, even if I had a $3000 pan and box brake with fingers.

The only way to do this that I can see is if I could somehow offset the platen from the apron and then put a die base on the platen inside the box, but as I understand it, normal pan brakes don't do that.
