|Accrued Expenses [Abstract]|
Accrued expenses consisted of the following at:
U.S. Department of Energy
In conjunction with the U.S. Department of Energy (“DOE”) grant, the DOE owns 51% of all property reimbursed under the terms of the grant with a fair value in excess of $5,000 but allows for the grantee to purchase the DOE’s share at the end of the grant. The DOE grant is currently under novation negotiations and terminated as of December 31, 2013. The Company has accrued a liability of 51% of the net book value of all DC fast chargers in inventory and installed as of March 31, 2014 subject to the resolution of the novation negotiations. As of June 2, 2014, the Company has not received a request from the DOE to purchase the units.
Registration Rights Penalty
In connection with the sale of the Company’s stock during the quarter ended December 31, 2013, the Company sold 17,785,714 shares of its common stock and issued 17,785,714 warrants for gross proceeds of $15,450,000. In conjunction with these sales, the Company also issued 112,000 shares of common stock, 988,000 warrant units and 112,000 warrants to placement agents. The Company granted the purchasers’ and the placement agents’ registration rights on both the shares and the underlying shares related to the warrants within 60 days of the date of the sale of the stock, as amended. The stock purchase agreement provided for a penalty provision imposed upon the Company of 1% of the gross proceeds per month for each month that the shares are not registered not to exceed 10%. As of February 9, 2014, the amended 60 day threshold, the Company had not filed a registration statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) but initially filed on February 18, 2014 and amended its filing on May 13, 2014. The Company has accrued a liability for the maximum liability as it can not determine when the registration statement will become effective but does not believe at this time that it is probable that it will be effective before the maximum penalty is reached. The Company has also accrued interest in the amount of $17,600 through April 30, 2014 at the rate of 18% per annum simple interest in accordance with the terms of the registration rights agreement.
Accrued consulting fees represent contractual obligations to issue either shares of the Company’s common stock and or cash to consultants for services rendered. The Company is currently contesting whether the consultants performed in accordance with terms of their respective contracts and therefore has not issued the shares nor paid for the services.
The Company provides a limited product warranty against defects in materials and workmanship for its Blink residential and commercial chargers, ranging in length from one to two years. The Company accrues for estimated warranty costs at the time of revenue recognition and records the expense of such accrued liabilities as a component of cost of sales. Estimated warranty costs are based on historical product data and anticipated future costs. Should actual failure rates differ significantly from estimates, the impact of these unforeseen costs would be recorded as a change in estimate in the period identified. The changes in the carrying amount of accrued warranty reserves, for the three months ended March 31, 2014 is as follows:
No warranty costs were incurred during the quarter ended March 31, 2013.
Accrued fees consist of professional, board of director and network fees.
