|Related Party Transactions [Abstract]|
As of March 31, 2019, the Company recorded a payable to its former President and Chief Executive Officer of $1.0 million. The amount is mostly related to his termination benefits associated with his resignation from the Company. The termination benefit is payable to Mona via regular payroll through June 2021. The Company recorded $0.6 million in accrued expenses and $0.4 million in other liabilities.
As part of the Settlement Agreement described in Note 6, 2,950,000 RSUs vested and were issued to Mona. The vesting of the RSU's is treated as taxable compensation and thus subject to income tax withholdings. No amounts were withheld (either in cash or the equivalent of shares of common stock from the vesting of the RSU's) and included in the Company’s payroll tax filing at the time of vesting. The compensation is subject to Federal and State income tax withholding and Federal Insurance Contributions Act (“FICA”) taxes withholding estimated to be $5.6 million for the employee portions. The employer portion of the FICA taxes is $0.2 million and has been recorded as a component of selling, general and administrative expenses in the condensed consolidated statement of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2019. Although the primary tax liability is the responsibility of the employee, the Company is secondarily liable and thus has recorded the liability on its condensed consolidated balance sheet as of March 31, 2019 in an amount of $5.8 million which was recorded as a component of Accrued expenses. The Company has recorded an offsetting receivable for the total estimated Federal and State income taxes which should have been withheld in addition to the employee portion of the FICA payroll taxes as the primary liability is ultimately the responsibility of the employee. This resulted in a receivable of $5.6 million as of March 31, 2019 which was recorded in the line item Prepaid expenses and other on the condensed consolidated balance sheet. The associated liability may be relieved once the tax amount is paid by Mona and the Company has received the required taxing authority documentation from Mona. However, if the amount is not paid, the Company would be liable for such withholding tax due. Additionally, the Company could be subject to negligence penalties if the amounts are ultimately not paid. The Company does not believe that any such penalties are probable or reasonably possible as of March 31, 2019.
