We lease approximately 2,000 square feet of office space at 3150 Almaden Expressway, San Jose, California (our principal executive offices) from an unrelated party pursuant to an operating lease that expires September 30, 2021. Our base rent is approximately $5,000 per month and the lease provides for annual increases of approximately 3% and an escalation clause for increases in certain operating costs. Rent expense was approximately $16,000 and $16,000, respectively, for the three months ended July 31, 2021 and 2020, and approximately $48,000 and $48,000, respectively, for the nine months ended July 31, 2021 and 2020.


On November 1, 2019, the Company adopted ASC 842, which increases transparency and comparability by recognizing a lessee’s rights and obligations resulting from leases by recording them on the balance sheet as lease assets and lease liabilities. The new guidance requires the recognition of the right-of-use (“ROU”) assets and related operating lease liabilities on the balance sheet. The Company adopted the new guidance using the modified retrospective approach on November 1, 2019.


For operating leases, the lease liability is initially and subsequently measured at the present value of the unpaid lease payments. The remaining 2-month lease term as of July 31, 2021 for the Company’s lease includes the noncancelable period of the lease. The lease does not contain a Company option to extend the lease or an option to extend the lease controlled by the lessor. All ROU assets are reviewed for impairment.
