Note 6. Leases
The Company’s principal executive office in New York City is under a month to month arrangement. The Company also had a lease in Greenwich, CT which expired in March 2020 and is now month-to-month.
The Company has operating leases for corporate, business and technician offices. Leases with a probable term of 12 months or less, including month-to-month agreements, are not recorded on the condensed consolidated balance sheet, unless the arrangement includes an option to purchase the underlying asset, or an option to renew the arrangement, that the Company is reasonably certain to exercise (short-term leases). The Company recognizes lease expense for these leases on a straight-line bases over the lease term. The Company’s only two remaining leases are month-to-month. As a practical expedient, the Company elected, for all office and facility leases, not to separate non-lease components (common-area maintenance costs) from lease components (fixed payments including rent) and instead to account for each separate lease component and its associated non-lease components as a single lease component. The Company uses its incremental borrowing rate for purposes of discounting lease payments.
The Company adopted FASB Accounting Standards Codification, Topic 842, Leases (“ASC 842”) electing the practical expedient that allows the Company not to restate its comparative periods prior to the adoption of the standard on January 1, 2019. As such, the disclosures required under ASC 842 are not presented for periods before the date of adoption. For the comparative periods prior to adoption, the Company presented the disclosures which were required under ASC 840. The Company elected the optional transition method and adopted the new guidance on January 1, 2019 on a modified retrospective basis with no restatement of prior period amounts. As allowed under the new accounting standard, the Company elected to apply practical expedients to carry forward the original lease determinations, lease classifications and accounting of initial direct costs for all asset classes at the time of adoption. The Company also elected not to separate lease components from non-lease components and to exclude short-term leases from its condensed consolidated balance sheet. The Company’s adoption of the new standard as of January 1, 2019 resulted in the recognition of right-of-use assets of approximately $53,000 and liabilities of approximately $53,000. There was no impact to the accumulated deficit upon adoption of Topic 842.
As of September 30, 2020, assets recorded under operating leases were $0. Operating lease right of use assets and lease liabilities are recognized at the lease commencement date based on the present value of lease payments over the lease term. The discount rate used to determine the commencement date present value of lease payment is the Company’s incremental borrowing rate, which is the rate incurred to borrow on a collateralized basis over a similar term at an amount equal to the lease payments in a similar economic environment. Certain adjustments to the right-of-use asset may be required for items such as initial direct costs paid or incentives received.
For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, the components of lease expense were as follows:
