Leases [Abstract]  

Note 3:


We adopted ASU No. 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842) on October 1, 2019, the beginning of our fiscal year. The Company adopted the new standard prospectively and elected certain practical expedients permitted under the new standard’s transition guidance. This allows the Company to carry forward the historical lease classification and to not reassess the lease term for leases in existence as of the adoption date and to carry forward our historical accounting treatment for land easements on agreements existing on the adoption date. The Company also made policy elections for certain classes of underlying assets to not separate lease and non-lease components in a contract as permitted under the new standard.

We lease retail stores, warehouse facilities and office space. These assets and properties are generally leased under noncancelable agreements that expire at various dates through 2029 with various renewal options for additional periods. The agreements, which have been classified as operating leases, generally provide for minimum and, in some cases percentage rent and require us to pay all insurance, taxes and other maintenance costs. As a result, we recognize assets and liabilities for all leases with lease terms greater than 12 months. The amounts recognized reflect the present value of remaining lease payments for all leases. The discount rate used is an estimate of the Company’s blended incremental borrowing rate based on information available at lease commencement. In considering the lease asset value, the company considers fixed and variable payment terms, prepayments and options to extend, terminate or purchase. Renewal, termination or purchase options affect the lease term used for determining lease asset value only if the option is reasonably certain to be exercised. See the Note 2 on Lease Accounting.

The weighted average remaining lease term is 2.8 years.  Our weighted average discount rate is 10.3%.  Total cash payments for the six months ended March 31, 2020 was $3,872. We did not enter into any new leases during the six months ended March 31, 2020, however, upon completion of the Lonesome Oak acquisition (see Note 4), we recorded right of use assets and lease liabilities of $7,691.


The following table details our right of use assets and lease liabilities as of March 31, 2020:

During the six months ended March 31, 2020, the Company recorded a net gain on lease settlement of $223 which consisted of impairment charges of $614 related to the decision to close additional ApplianceSmart retail locations resulting in a decrease to the associated right of use asset related to these leases, offset by a gain on lease settlement of $837 resulting from the extinguishment of the lease liability associated with the closed retail locations.
