Deferred Lease Incentive


On June 29, 2009, the Company entered into a five-year office lease agreement (the “Original Lease”) as disclosed in Note 16.  The lessor agreed to grant a leasehold improvement allowance of $100,000 to the Company to be used for the construction cost of improvements to the leased property, which included architectural and engineering fees, government agency plan check, permit and other fees, sales and use taxes, testing and inspection costs, and telephone and data cabling and wiring in the premises.  The Company accounted for the benefit of the leasehold improvement allowance as a reduction of rental expense over the five-year term of the office lease.


On June 7, 2013, the Company entered into the first amendment to the lease agreement, also disclosed in Note 16. According to the terms of the amendment, the Company extended the lease term until June 30, 2019, and the amendment term began on July 1, 2013.  The lessor agreed to grant an additional leasehold improvement allowance of $54,660 to the Company to be used for the further construction to the leased property and furniture and equipment.  The Company accounts for this benefit, including the unamortized portion from the Original Lease, as a reduction of rental expense over the six-year amended term of the lease.

Deferred Office Lease Expense


The original and amended lease agreements, disclosed above, require an initial annual base rent with annual increases over the next six years.  The Company recognizes rental expense on a straight-line basis over the term of the lease, which resulted in a deferred rent liability of $43,039 and $35,417 as of September 30, 2013 and December 31 2012, respectively.
