Operating Leases



At December 31, 2019, the Company had one operating lease for its headquarters office space in Burbank, California that expires on July 31, 2023.


In February 2020, the Company took possession of a second leased facility consisting of office, research, and production space also located in Burbank, California. The lease commenced on January 1, 2020, and has a term for 5 years, with annual fixed rental payments ranging from $90 to $101. The aggregate total fixed rent is approximately $478 and resulted in the recognition of an operating lease right-of-use (“ROU”) asset and of corresponding lease liability of approximately $430 each. The Company also paid a security deposit of $16. At March 31, 2020, the Company did not have any other leases.


ROU assets and lease liabilities are recognized at commencement date based on the present value of lease payments over the lease term. Generally the implicit rate of interest in arrangements is not readily determinable and the Company utilizes its incremental borrowing rate in determining the present value of lease payments. The Company’s incremental borrowing rate is a hypothetical rate based on its understanding of what its credit rating would be. The operating lease ROU asset includes any lease payments made and excludes lease incentives.


The components of lease expense and supplemental cash flow information related to leases for the period are as follows:
