Lease Obligations

In May 2017, the Company renewed its operating lease agreement for its headquarters and manufacturing facility in Richmond, California. The operating lease agreement expires in May 2022, with no further options to extend or terminate. During the renewal period, the base rent is approximately $32 per month during the first year, with incremental 3% increases per annum thereafter. The lease includes non-lease components (i.e. common area maintenance costs) that are paid separately from rent based on actual costs incurred and therefore were not included in the right-of-use asset and lease liability but are reflected as an expense in the period incurred.

In July 2017, the Company entered into an operating lease agreement for its European operations office in Hamburg, Germany. The initial Hamburg lease term ends in July 2022. The Company has an option to extend the lease for another five-year term. Until April 2019, the Company had an unoccupied leased sales office in Freiburg, which had an original lease term expiring in December 2020. In April 2019, the Company entered an agreement with the lessor of the Freiburg office releasing the Company from future lease payments after April 30, 2019.
In August 2015, the Company entered into a long-term financing lease for equipment. The aggregate principal of the lease at inception was $166, with an interest rate of 4.7%, minimum monthly payments of $3 and a July 1, 2020 maturity. This financing lease liability is classified as a component of accrued liabilities and other non-current liabilities in the condensed consolidated balance sheets.
The Company's future lease payments as of March 31, 2019 are as follows, which are presented as lease liabilities, current and lease liabilities on the Company's condensed consolidated balance sheets:

Lease expense under the Company’s operating leases was $140 and $143 for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively.

Practical Expedients

Leases with an initial term of 12 months or less are not recorded on the balance sheet. The Company recognizes the lease expense for such leases on a straight-line basis over the lease term.

The Company has elected to account for lease (e.g., fixed payments including rent) and non-lease components (e.g., common-area maintenance costs) as a single combined lease component under ASC 842 as the lease components are the predominant elements of the combined components.

As part of the transition to ASC 842, the Company elected to use the modified retrospective transition method with the new standard being applied as of the January 1, 2019 adoption date. Additionally, the Company has elected, as of the adoption date, not to reassess whether expired or existing contracts contain leases under the new definition of a lease, not to reassess the lease classification for expired or existing leases, not to reassess whether previously capitalized initial direct costs would qualify for capitalization under ASC 842.
