On October 1, 2019, the Company entered into a two-year extension related to 2,100 square feet of office space leased by its subsidiary, Applied Products LLC. The lease requires the Company to pay rent of $2,750 per month or $33,000 per year. The rent shall be increased at the end of each year by the same percentage as any increase in the Consumer Price Index (“CPI”) as published by the U.S. Department of Labor for the most recent preceding 12 month period. Also beginning on October 1, 2019, the Company entered into a five-year extension related to 3,734 square feet of office space leased by its subsidiary, Trace Analytics. The new rent is $5,716 per month or $68,592 per year.
Effective April 1, 2019, the Company adopted the guidance of ASC 842,
Leases,which requires an entity to recognize a right-of-use asset (“ROU”) and a lease liability for virtually all leases. Operating lease ROU assets and liabilities are recognized at commencement date based on the present value of lease payments over the lease term. ROU assets represent the Company’s right to use an underlying asset for the lease term and lease liabilities represent the Company’s obligation to make lease payments arising from the lease. In conjunction with the lease extensions entered into on October 1, 2019, the Company recorded a ROU asset and liability of $372,490. The Company used an implicit rate of interest to determine the present value of lease payments utilizing its incremental borrowing rate, as the implicit rate of interest in the respective leases is not readily determinable. The Company’s incremental borrowing rate is a hypothetical rate based on its understanding of what its credit rating would be.
