|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 Consolidated Statements of Operations or the 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 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.
Total rent expense for all facilities was $0.9 million for both fiscal years 2020 and 2019.
The following table presents future minimum lease payments as of March 31, 2020 and for comparison purposes as of March 31, 2019, prior to the adoption of ASC 842, future minimum lease payments under non-cancellable operating leases (in thousands):
As of March 31, 2020, the weighted-average remaining lease term was 2.8 years and the weighted-average discount rate was 4.3%.
As of March 31, 2020, the Company was evaluating renewal and replacement lease options for the corporate headquarters in Aurora, IL which would have expired on September 30, 2020. Subsequent to its fiscal year end, the Company entered into a contract amendment to extend the lease through November 30, 2025. The amendment includes a renewal option to extend for an additional five years.
Subsequent to March 31, 2020, the Company entered into a contract amendment to extend the lease in Manchester through August 31, 2022. The amendment includes a renewal option to extend for an additional two years.
During the second quarter of fiscal year 2020, as a cost savings effort, the Company executed a 63 month lease for the new Dublin, OH design service center rather than execute the two year extension option to the existing lease as previously assumed. The new lease commenced on December 1, 2019 and has a reduced footprint which is more suitable to our current operation. The new lease includes a renewal option to extend the initial lease term for an additional 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. At this time, the Company does not expect to terminate the lease at the end of the 39th month of the lease term and so the cost to terminate is not included in the ROU asset and lease liability balance.
Our leases in Dublin and Manchester include variable lease payments that are not included in the lease liability balances as they are based on the expenses which can vary during the term of each lease. All rent payments in the Aurora lease are fixed and as such are included in the lease liability balance.
Lease expenses are included in Cost of revenue, Sales and marketing, Research and development, and General and administrative in the Company's Consolidated Statements of Operations. The components of lease expense are as follows:
(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 fiscal year ended March 31, 2020, cash paid for operating leases included in the measurement of lease liabilities was $0.8 million. All of these payments are presented in Operating activities cash flows on the Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows.
The following table summarizes the classification of ROU assets and lease liabilities as of March 31, 2020:
The entire disclosure for lessee entity's leasing arrangements including, but not limited to, all of the following: (a.) The basis on which contingent rental payments are determined, (b.) The existence and terms of renewal or purchase options and escalation clauses, (c.) Restrictions imposed by lease agreements, such as those concerning dividends, additional debt, and further leasing.
