7. LEASES, OTHER COMMITMENTS, AND CONTINGENCIES

Litigation and Claims

We are not currently a party to any material pending legal proceeding.

Leases

We lease our headquarters facility, office equipment, and other items. Our headquarters lease involved the sale of land and improvements to a third party who then constructed the facility. This lease is considered a finance lease.

We also have an equipment financing line that is considered a financing lease. The lease has a term of four years and following our $0.2 million draw down in the three month period ending June 30, 2019, we may add up to $0.9 million of future equipment purchases to the financing agreement. We were required to deposit cash into a restricted account in an amount equal to the future rent payments required by the lease. At June 30, 2019, this restricted cash totaled $1.5 million.

Rent expense from operating leases was $20,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2019, and was $78,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2018. Rent expense was expense $69,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2019, and was $160,000 during the six months ended June 30, 2018.

Other Commitments

As of June 30, 2019, we have committed to purchase grain from farmers at dates throughout 2019 and 2020 aggregating $19.0 million using commodity futures market prices, other payments to growers and estimated yields per acre. This amount is not recorded in the financial statements because we have not taken delivery of the grain as of that date.
