Leases [Abstract]  
Leases of Lessee Disclosure [Text Block]

The Company adopted ASC 842 effective April 1, 2019, which resulted in an increase to total assets of $1.3 million to record the right-of-use (ROU) assets for operating leases of facilities and an increase in total liabilities of $1.2 million to record the associated lease liabilities. The difference between operating lease liabilities and ROU assets recognized is primarily due to prepaid rent and deferred rent accruals recorded under prior lease accounting standards. ASC 842 requires such balances to be reclassified against ROU assets at transition. The adoption did not have any impact on the Company's Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations or the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows.

ROU assets represent the Company's right to use an underlying asset during the lease term and lease liabilities represent the Company's obligation to make lease payments arising from the lease. ROU assets and liabilities are recognized at the lease commencement date based on the net present value of remaining fixed lease payments over the lease term. Lease terms used to calculate the present value of the lease payments include any options to extend, renew, or terminate the lease, when it is reasonably certain that these options will be exercised. ROU assets also include any advance lease payments made and exclude any lease incentives. As the implicit interest rate for our leases is not readily determinable, the Company uses its incremental borrowing rate based on the information available at commencement date in determining the present value of lease payments. Lease expense is recognized on a straight-line basis over the lease term. The Company has lease arrangements with non-lease components that are not in-substance fixed and considered variable, which were not included in the carrying balances of the right-of-use asset and lease liability. The Company does not have any finance leases.

The Company elected the package of practical expedients, which among other things, allows the Company to carry forward historical lease classifications. Leases with an initial term of 12 months or less are not recorded on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. The Company also made the accounting policy election to account for each separate lease component and non-lease component associated with that lease component as a single lease component, thus causing all fixed payments to be capitalized. The Company determines at inception whether an arrangement is a lease.

The Company reviews the impairment ROU assets consistent with the approach applied to other long-lived assets. ROU assets are reviewed for recoverability whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of such assets may not be recoverable. Determination of recoverability is based on an estimate of undiscounted future cash flows resulting from the use of the asset and its eventual disposition. If the carrying amount of an asset exceeds its estimated future undiscounted cash flows, an impairment loss is recorded for the excess of the asset’s carrying amount over its fair value.

The Company's operating leases primarily include building leases for the corporate headquarters in Aurora, IL, an engineering and service center in Dublin, OH, and office space in Manchester, NH.

Future minimum lease payments as of September 30, 2019, consisted of the following (in thousands):

Total operating lease liabilities

(1) Represents the future minimum operating lease payments expected to be made over the remaining balance of the fiscal year.
(2) The Company currently occupies office space under operating leases, with various expiration dates through September 30, 2020.
As of September 30, 2019, the weighted-average remaining lease term was 1.0 years and the weighted-average discount rate was 4.3%.

The Company is currently evaluating renewal and replacement lease options for the corporate headquarters in Aurora, IL which expires on September 30, 2020.

During the second quarter of fiscal year 2019, as a cost savings effort, the Company executed a new 63 month lease for the Dublin, OH design service center rather than executing the two year option to extend the existing lease as previously assumed. The new lease is expected to begin in November 2019 and has a reduced footprint which is more suitable to our current operation. The current Ohio lease expired on October 31, 2019, but the lease allows for a holdover provision expected to bridge usage until the start of the new lease. While the new lease contract has been signed, liabilities and assets for this new lease are not included in the lease liability balances or ROU asset balances as of September 30, 2019 because the lease commencement date will not occur until after this date. The new lease includes a renewal option to extend the initial lease term for three years. The lease also includes a termination option effective the last day of the 39th month of the lease term. The cost to terminate under this option would be approximately $70,000.
Lease expenses are included in Cost of revenue, Sales and marketing, Research and development, and General and administrative in the Company's Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations. The components of lease expense are as follows:
(in thousands)
Three months ended September 30, 2019
Six months ended September 30, 2019
Operating lease expense


Variable lease expense (1)


Total lease expense (2)


(1) Variable lease expense is related to our leased real estate in Ohio and New Hampshire and primarily includes labor and operational costs as well as taxes and insurance.
(2) Short-term lease expense is immaterial.
For the six months ended September 30, 2019, cash paid for operating leases included in the measurement of lease liabilities was $0.4 million. All of these payments are presented in Operating activities cash flows on the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows.
