The following are the Company’s total minimum guaranteed obligations as of:
(1)Accrued royalties are included within the Accrued liabilities line item on the Consolidated Balance Sheets.
The following are the Company’s remaining expected future payments of minimum guarantee obligations as of September 30, 2021:
The Company leases both office space and office equipment and classifies these leases as either operating or capital leases for accounting purposes based upon the terms and conditions of the individual lease agreements. As of September 30, 2021, all leases were classified as operating leases and expire at various dates through 2026, with certain leases containing renewal option periods of to five years at the end of the current lease terms.
The Company’s future minimum rental commitments as of September 30, 2021, are as follows:
Certain lease agreements have rent escalation provisions over the lives of the leases. The Company recognizes rental expense based on a straight-line basis over the term of the leases. Rental expense was $1.2 million and $1.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively, and $3.8 million and $3.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively, which is included within “General and administrative” expenses in the Consolidated Statements of Operations.
The Company is party to ordinary and routine litigation incidental to its business. On a case-by-case basis, the Company engages inside and outside counsel to assess the probability of potential liability resulting from such litigation. After making such assessments, the Company makes an accrual for the estimated loss only when the loss is reasonably probable and an amount can be reasonably estimated. The Company does not expect the outcome of any pending litigation to have a material effect on the Company’s Consolidated Balance Sheets, Consolidated Statements of Operations, or Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows.
In May 2021, the Company became party to a litigation matter brought by TeamSava d.o.o. Beograd (“TeamSava”) and other related parties. The plaintiffs filed a Statement of Claim in May 2021 in Tel Aviv District Court in Israel, alleging claims, among other things, that the Company breached the terms of a commercial contract relating to services provided by TeamSava and related parties in connection with the sourcing and administrative management of personnel in Serbia who provided game development services exclusively for the Company. The pending litigation seeks damages of 27.3 million New Israeli Shekels ("NIS"). The Company believes that the claims are without merit and the Company intends to vigorously defend against them; however, there can be no assurance that the Company will be successful in the defense of this litigation. The Company’s range of possible loss could be up to 27.3 million NIS based on the claim amount of the litigation, but the Company is not able to reasonably estimate the probability or amount of loss and therefore has not made any accruals.
