Operating Leases
In December 2013, the Company entered into a lease agreement for a facility in South San Francisco, California. The lease commenced in July 2014 and was set to expire in 2019. Per the terms of the lease agreement, the Company had the option to terminate the lease after 36 months, subject to additional fees and expenses. Deferred rent applicable to this lease totaled $311,000 at December 31, 2015 which is included in Liabilities subject to compromise in the accompanying Consolidated Balance Sheet. In March 2016, the Company entered into a termination agreement (the “Lease Termination Agreement”) related to the lease of this facility. The Lease Termination Agreement, approved by order of the Bankruptcy Court issued March 15, 2016, waived all damages related to early termination of the lease, relieved the Company of March rental expenses and set an effective termination date of March 31, 2016.
Concurrent with the termination of this lease, the Company entered into a lease agreement for a new facility in Brisbane, California. The new lease commenced in April 2016 and was to expire on March 31, 2017. On February 16, 2017, the Company amended the lease to extend the term of the lease for an additional period of eighteen months such that the lease will expire on September 30, 2018.
As of December 31, 2016, future minimum lease payments due under the Company’s lease, including the lease amendment executed on February 16, 2017, are as follows:

The Company has certain agreements with service providers with which it does business that contain indemnification provisions pursuant to which the Company typically agrees to indemnify the party against certain types of third‑party claims. The Company accrues for known indemnification issues when a loss is probable and can be reasonably estimated. The Company would also accrue for estimated incurred but unidentified indemnification issues based on historical activity. As the Company has not incurred any indemnification losses to date, there were no accruals for or expenses related to indemnification issues for any period presented.
