The Company entered into a real property lease for office space located at 15315 Magnolia Blvd., Sherman Oaks, California. The lease commenced on September 1, 2019 and expires on August 31, 2024, monthly rental expense is $4,941 per month with annual 3% escalations during the term of the lease.
The initial value of the right-of-use asset was $245,482 and the operating lease liability was $245,482. The Company monitors for events or changes in circumstances that require a reassessment of our lease. When a reassessment results in the remeasurement of a lease liability, a corresponding adjustment is made to the carrying amount of the corresponding right-of-use asset unless doing so would reduce the carrying amount of the right-of-use asset to an amount less than zero. In that case, the amount of the adjustment that would result in a negative right-of-use asset balance is recorded as a loss in the statement of operations and comprehensive loss.
During April 2015, the Company entered into two equipment loan agreements in the aggregate amount of $282,384, with financial institutions to acquire equipment for the oil extraction facility. The loans had a term of 60 months and bore interest at rates between 4.3% and 4.9% per annum. Principal and interest were paid in monthly installments. These loans were secured by the acquired assets.
On May 7, 2018, the Company entered into a negotiable promissory note and security agreement with Commercial Credit Group to acquire a crusher from Power Equipment Company for $660,959. An implied interest rate was calculated as 12.36% based on the timing of the initial repayment of $132,200 and subsequent 42 monthly instalments of $15,571. The terms of the note were renegotiated during June 2020, and the instalments were amended to $16,140 per month due to payments not being made during the pandemic. The promissory note is secured by the crusher.
To determine the present value of minimum future lease payments for operating leases at September 1, 2019, the Company was required to estimate a rate of interest that it would have to pay to borrow on a collateralized basis over a similar term an amount equal to the lease payments in a similar economic environment (the “incremental borrowing rate” or “IBR”).
The Company determined the appropriate IBR by identifying a reference rate and making adjustments that take into consideration financing options and certain lease-specific circumstances. For the reference rate, the Company used the 5 year ARM (adjustable-rate mortgage) interest rate at the time of entering into the agreement and compared that rate to the Company’s weighted average cost of funding at the time of entering into the operating lease. The Company determined that 10.00% was an appropriate incremental borrowing rate to apply to its real-estate operating lease.
