Operating leases
Note 8 – Operating leases

Effective January 1, 2019, the Company adopted the FASB guidance on leases (“Topic 842”), which requires leases with durations greater than twelve months to be recognized on the balance sheet. The Company adopted Topic 842 using the modified retrospective transition approach.  Prior year financial statements were not recast under Topic 842, and therefore those amounts are not disclosed. The Company has elected certain practical expedients, including the package of practical expedients to not reassess prior conclusions related to contracts containing leases, lease classification and initial direct costs as well as an accounting policy to account for lease and non-lease components as a single component.  The Company also elected the optional transition method that gives companies the option to use the effective date as the date of initial application on transition, and as a result, the Company did not adjust its comparative period financial information or make the new required lease disclosures for periods before the effective date. The Company has elected to make the accounting policy election for short-term leases. Consequently, short-term leases are recorded as an expense on a straight-line basis over the lease term.  The Company did not elect the hindsight practical expedient.

The Company’s leases relate to our corporate offices and warehouse. For leases with terms greater than 12 months, the Company records the related asset and obligation at the present value of lease payments over the term. Lease renewal options are not included in the measurement of the right-of-use assets and right-of-use liabilities unless the Company is reasonably certain to exercise the optional renewal periods. The Company’s lease agreements do not contain any material residual value guarantees or material restrictive covenants.  Additionally, the Company’s leases contain rent escalations over the lease term and the Company recognizes expense for these leases on a straight-line basis over the lease term. Some of the Company’s leases include rent escalations based on inflation indexes.

The Company identified an error as of January 1, 2019 related to the adoption of ASC 842, Leases, which resulted in an overstatement of less than $0.1 million for right-of-use assets and operating lease liabilities, respectively.   The Company also identified an overstatement of Accumulated Deficit of less than $0.1 million as of January 1, 2019.  The errors related to the impact upon adoption of ASC 842 were corrected during the twelve months ended December 31, 2019.  The Company believes the correction of these errors is not material to the consolidated financial statements as of and for the twelve months ended December 31, 2019.

For leases entered into or reassessed after the adoption of the new standard, the Company has elected the practical expedient allowed by the standard to account for all fixed consideration in a lease as a single lease component. Therefore, the lease payments used to measure the operating lease liability for these leases include fixed minimum rentals along with fixed operating costs such as common area maintenance and utilities.

The Company’s leases do not provide a readily available implicit rate. Therefore, the Company estimates the incremental borrowing discount rate based on information available at lease commencement. The discount rates used are indicative of a synthetic credit rating based on quantitative and qualitative analysis.

The table below presents the lease-related assets and liabilities recorded upon adoption:
