Commitments and Contingencies
 
We currently operate
one
facility located in the United States and
one
facility located in the People’s Republic of China. Our corporate offices and primary research facilities are located in Germantown, Maryland, where we lease approximately
1,500
square feet. This lease provides for monthly payments of approximately
$5,600
per month with the term expiring on
December 31, 2018.
 
In
2015,
we entered into a lease consisting of approximately
3,100
square feet of research space in San Diego, California. This lease provides for current monthly payments of approximately
$11,600
and expires on
August 31, 2019.
In
May 2017,
we ceased-use of this property and recognized a loss of approximately
$92,000
representing the present value of the expected remaining net payments due under such lease and the costs to vacate the property. In
April 2018,
we entered into an agreement for the sub-lease of the property and recognized an additional loss of approximately
$50,000
reflecting the present value of the revised expected remaining net payments due.
 
We also lease a research facility in People’s Republic of China. This lease expires on
March 31, 2019
with lease payments of approximately
$3,800
per month.
 
From time to time, we are parties to legal proceedings that we believe to be ordinary, routine litigation incidental to the business. We are currently
not
a party to any litigation or legal proceeding.
