Operating Leases
The Company rents its office under an operating lease, which expires in October 2018. Under the terms of the lease, the Company is responsible for taxes, insurance and maintenance expense. The Company recognizes rent expense on a straight-line basis over the lease period. Rent expense for the three months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017 was $91,175 and $85,872, respectively. Rent expense for the six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017 was $178,688 and $171,191, respectively.
Other Commitments
From 2011 to January 30, 2018, employees, consultants, and directors of the Company were entitled to participate in the Plan at the discretion of the Company’s Board of Directors. Each Plan participant was awarded points which entitled the participant to a portion of the proceeds payable to the Company and/or its members upon a sale of the Company. The proceeds payable to a Plan participant were to equal an amount determined in accordance with the following formula: number of points held by participant, divided by total points outstanding, multiplied by 18% of Net Sale Price. For this purpose, “Net Sale Price” equaled the aggregate amount payable to the Company and/or its members in connection with a sale of the Company, less all amounts payable to creditors of the Company. Awards payable to Plan participants were senior to any amounts payable to members of the Company. As of December 31, 2017, the Company had not recorded a liability relating to the Plan, as any amounts payable under the Plan would be recognized as compensation expense in the consolidated statement of operations during the period that the Company would have become obligated to make such payments.
On January 30, 2018, the Company’s Board of Directors terminated the Plan and adopted the LTIP. (See Note 7 – Stockholders’ Deficit).
In the normal course of business, the Company may become involved in legal proceedings. The Company will accrue a liability for such matters when it is probable that a liability has been incurred and the amount can be reasonably estimated. When only a range of a possible loss can be established, the most probable amount in the range is accrued. If no amount within this range is a better estimate than any other amount within the range, the minimum amount in the range is accrued. The accrual for a litigation loss contingency might include, for example, estimates of potential damages, outside legal fees and other directly related costs expected to be incurred.
The Company’s management does not believe that any such matters, individually or in the aggregate, will have a materially adverse effect on the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements.
