Note 12 – Commitments and Contingencies
In accordance with its certificate of incorporation, bylaws and indemnification agreements, the Company has indemnification obligations to its officers and directors for certain events or occurrences, subject to certain limits, while they are serving at the Company’s request in such capacity. The Company has director and officer insurance to address such claims. The Company also provides indemnification of contractual counterparties in certain situations, including without limitation to clinical sites, service providers and licensors.
On June 14, 2022, the Company entered into a sublease agreement with The Paul Revere Life Insurance Company. Pursuant to the terms of the sublease lease agreement, the Company agreed to lease 26,503 square feet, located at One Mercantile Street, Worcester, MA (the “Mercantile Center”), through January 2030. The Company recorded a right of useand related operating lease liability of $2.2 million on the Unaudited Balance Sheet at the lease inception.
On July 18, 2023, the Company executed, with a retroactive Effective Date of June 15, 2023, a Third Amendment to Sublease (the “Third Amendment”), with the Paul Revere Life Insurance Company, pursuant to which the Company relocated from the 26,503 square feet of rentable space on the fourth floor of the Mercantile Center to 11,916 square feet of rentable space on the second floor of the Mercantile Center. As a result of the modification, the Company recorded an adjustment to its right of use asset and related operating lease liability of $1.0 million and $1.2 million, respectively, and $0.2 million gain on the modification of the sublease, which is recorded in Other Income in the Unaudited Statements of Operations.
The Company also leases office space and copiers under agreements classified as operating leases that expire on various dates through 2026. The Company’s lease liabilities result from the lease of its Plantation Street Facility in Massachusetts, which expires in 2026, and its copiers, which expire in 2024. Such leases do not require any contingent rental payments, impose any financial restrictions, or contain any residual value guarantees. Certain of the Company’s leases include renewal options and escalation clauses; renewal options have not been included in the calculation of the lease liabilities and right of use assets as the Company is not reasonably certain to exercise the options. The Company does not act as a lessor or have any leases classified as financing leases. At September 30, 2023, the Company had operating lease liabilities of $2.6 million and right of use assets of $1.6 million, which were included in the Unaudited Balance Sheet. At December 31, 2022, the Company had operating lease liabilities of $3.9 million and right of use assets of $2.9 million, which were included in the Unaudited Balance Sheet.
