Note 4.         Leases


The Company has two significant operating leases, one for its headquarters offices in Fairfax, Virginia and one for additional office space in Annapolis, Maryland. The leases both commenced in 2021 and have original lease terms ranging from 37 to 67 months and rental rates escalate by approximately 2.5% annually under both leases. The Company determines if an arrangement is a lease at inception.


As of June 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, the Company does not have any sales-type or direct financing leases.


Each of the Company’s operating lease assets represent its right to use an underlying asset for the lease term and the related lease liability represent its obligation to make lease payments arising from the lease. Operating lease assets and liabilities are recognized at the commencement date based on the present value of lease payments over the lease term. Since the leases do not provide an implicit rate, the Company uses its incremental borrowing rate based on the information available at the lease commencement dates in determining the present value of lease payments. The operating lease assets also include any lease payments made and exclude lease incentives. Lease expense for lease payments is recognized on a straight-line basis over the lease term. The Company’s lease agreements include rental payments escalating annually for inflation at a fixed rate. These payments are included in the initial measurement of the operating lease liabilities and operating lease assets. The Company does not have any rental payments which are based on a change in an index or a rate that can be considered variable lease payments, which would be expensed as incurred.


The Company’s lease agreements do not contain any material residual value guarantees or material restrictions or covenants.


The Company does not sublease any real estate to third parties.


As of June 30, 2023, our two operating leases had a weighted average remaining lease term of 29 months and a weighted average discount rate of 5.0%. Future lease payments under operating leases as of June 30, 2023, were as follows:
