Note 12 – Leases

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, ASC 842 Leases to increase transparency and comparability among organizations by recognizing all lease transactions (with terms in excess of 12 months) on the balance sheet as a lease liability and a right-of-use asset (as defined). On January 1, 2019, the Company adopted the accounting pronouncement issued using the modified retrospective method. The Company elected the “package of practical expedients” permitted under the transition guidance within the new standard, which among other things, allowed the Company to carry forward the historical lease classification. In addition, the Company elected not to utilize the hindsight practical expedient to determine the lease term for existing leases. The Company elected the short-term lease recognition exemption for all leases that qualify. This means, for those leases that qualify, the Company did not recognize right-of-use assets or lease liabilities, including not recognizing right-of-use assets or lease liabilities for existing short-term leases of those assets in transition. The Company also elected the practical expedient to not separate lease and non-lease components. Adoption of the new standard resulted in the recording of additional operating right-of-use assets and operating lease liabilities of approximately $4.3 million and $4.3 million, respectively, as of January 1, 2019. The adoption of this standard did not impact the Company’s retained earnings liquidity, results of operations or its compliance with its debt covenants. The Company modified existing controls and processes to support the adoption of the new lease accounting standard that the Company adopted as of January 1, 2019.

From time to time, the Company enters into leases primarily for the electrical construction operation’s equipment needs and to a lesser extent office facilities. These leases allow the Company to conserve cash by paying a monthly lease rental fee for the use of equipment rather than purchasing them. The Company’s leases have remaining terms ranging from months to four years, some of which may include options to extend the lease term. Currently, all of the Company’s leases contain fixed payment terms. Additionally, all of our month-to-month leases are cancelable by the Company, at any time and are not included in our right-of-use asset or liability. At March 31, 2019, the Company had no leases with residual value guarantees. Typically, the Company has purchase options on the equipment underlying its long-term leases and many of its short-term rental arrangements. The Company may exercise some of these purchase options when the need for equipment is on-going and the purchase option price is attractive.

Financing Leases

The Company currently does not have any leases that are classified as financing leases under ASC 842 Leases.

Operating Right of Use Leases

Operating right-of-use leases are reported under “Other assets,” on the Company’s consolidated balance sheet. The current portion operating lease liabilities are reported under “Accounts payable and accrued liabilities” and the non-current portion is reported under “Other accrued liabilities,” respectively on the Company’s consolidated balance sheet. Operating lease right-of-use assets and operating lease liabilities are recognized based on the present value of the future minimum lease payments over the lease term at commencement date. As most of the Company’s leases do not provide an implicit rate to calculate present value, the Company determines this rate, by estimating the Company’s incremental borrowing rate, at the lease commencement date. Lease expense for minimum lease payments is recognized on a straight-line basis over the lease term.
