Note 9 – Leases

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, which supersedes previous lease accounting guidance (Topic 840) and establishes a right-of-use model that requires a lessee to record an asset and liability on the balance sheet for all leases with terms longer than 12 months. The Company does not have any material variable payments, residual value guarantees or restrictive covenants for its leases and does not have any leases with terms of 12 months or less.

 

On August 1, 2019, upon adoption of ASC Topic 842, the Company recorded right-of-use assets of approximately $1.4 million, lease liabilities of approximately $2.1 million and a reduction in deferred rent liabilities of $0.6 million for operating leases. Also, the adoption of ASC 842 did not have an impact on the Company’s beginning accumulated deficit balance.

 

In November 2019, the Company entered into a lease agreement for its office space in California directly with the landlord, ARE-SD Region No. 18, LLC (“ARE”), with an effective date being the earlier of: (a) October 1, 2020 or (b) the day after the termination of the Company’s existing sublease if it ends prior to September 30, 2020. The lease is for a term of 36 months, with one renewal option for an additional 36-month term. The minimum monthly payment is $55,989. The Company accounted for the ARE lease as a contract modification, and accordingly, recorded an additional right-of-use asset for approximately $5.3 million and lease liabilities of approximately $5.2 million for this operating lease.

 

The Company has operating leases for corporate offices and lab space. These leases have remaining lease terms of approximately one year to seven years, some of which include options to extend the lease. For any lease where the Company is reasonably certain that a renewal option will be exercised, the lease payments associated with the renewal option period are included in the ROU asset and lease liability as of April 30, 2020.
