Related Party Receivable
 
On
August 10, 2016,
we entered into a reimbursement agreement with a former executive officer. Pursuant to the reimbursement agreement, the former officer agreed to repay the Company, over a
six
-year period, approximately
$658,000
in expenses that the Company determined to have been improperly paid under the Company's prior expense reimbursement policies. In addition to this reimbursement agreement, the Company has implemented and is continuing to implement enhanced policies and procedures for travel expense reimbursements and disbursements.
 
The
$658,000
non-interest bearing receivable is recorded net of a discount to reflect the net present value of the future cash payments.  The Company recorded a non-operating gain of
$459,000
for the year ended
December 31, 2016.  
The discount is being amortized through interest income using the effective interest method.  The principal amount of
$558,000,
excluding discount remains outstanding at
June 30, 2017
and is payable in
$100,000
annual installments with a final balloon payment due
six
years from issuance.
