Form 10-K for the Year Ended December 31, 2017
Filed April 2, 2018
File No. 000-53012

Dear Mr. Rajan,

The following correspondence is supplemental information to our original filing on December 10, 2018 and will show how we concluded the transaction met the definition of a normal leaseback, which is predicated on the lessee’s active use of the property as well as minor sublease during the lease term and the absence of other continuing involvement conditions. The Registrant’s conclusion of minor use is based on the following:

 

Concurrent with the sale of the land, building and improvements, the Registrant leased -back and occupied 26,176 square feet of the premises, or approximately 34% of the building.

 

The Registrant estimated the present value of the leaseback to be approximately 10% of the fair value of the asset sold and summarized as follows:

 

Purchaser’s acquisition costs per settlement sheet (attachment a) $ 15,819,338
Registrant’s incremental annual borrowing rate (attachment b) 71.3%
Present value of  Registrant’s leaseback (attachment b) $1,566,680

 

The Registrant believes the lease rental appeared to be reasonable in view of current market conditions at the time of the sale.

 

The Registrant believes it relinquished substantially all the right as a result, the Registrant accounted for the leaseback as though it were unrelated to the sale because the leaseback is minor representing less than 10% of the selling price of the building. The Registrant believes that the present value of the estimated normal sublease rentals represent minor based upon the guidance in in Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 98 (as amended) and ASC 840-40-25-3.
