Note 18. Leases


The Company has entered into a number of lease arrangements under which the Company is the lessee. These leases are classified as operating leases. In addition, the Company has elected the short-term lease practical expedient in ASC Topic 842 related to real estate leases with terms of one year. The following is a summary of the Company’s lease arrangements.


Finance Lease Agreements


In May 2018, Progressive Care entered into a finance lease obligation to purchase pharmacy equipment with a cost of approximately $115,000. The terms of the lease agreement require monthly payments of $1,678 plus applicable tax over 84 months ending March 2025 including interest at the rate of 6%. 


Operating Lease Agreements


Right of use ("ROU") assets for operating leases are periodically reduced by impairment losses. We use the long-lived assets impairment guidance in ASC Subtopic 360-10, Property, Plant, and Equipment – Overall, to determine whether an ROU asset is impaired, and if so, the amount of the impairment loss to recognize. As of March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023, we have recognized impairment losses for ROU assets of approximately $132,000 and $0, respectively.


We monitor for events or changes in circumstances that require a reassessment of one of our leases. When a reassessment results in the re-measurement of a lease liability, a corresponding adjustment is made to the carrying amount of the corresponding ROU asset unless doing so would reduce the carrying amount of the ROU asset to an amount less than zero. In that case, the amount of the adjustment that would result in a negative ROU asset balance is recorded in profit or loss.


On December 2, 2021, Nextplat entered into a 62-month lease for 4,141 square feet of office space in Florida ("Florida lease"), for $186,345 annually. The rent increases 3% annually. The lease commenced upon occupancy on June 13, 2022, and will expire on August 31, 2027. The Florida lease does not require any contingent rental payments, impose any financial restrictions, or contain any residual value guarantees. Variable expenses generally represent the Company’s share of the landlord’s operating expenses. 


For our facilities in Poole, England, we rent office and warehouse space of approximately 2,660 square feet for £30,000 annually or approximately USD $37,107, based on a yearly average exchange rate of 1.24 GBP: USD. The Poole lease was renewed on October 6, 2022, and expired October 31, 2023 and renewed for an additional twelve months.


Progressive Care entered into a lease agreement for its Orlando pharmacy in August 2020. The term of the lease is 66 months with a termination date of February 2026. The lease agreement calls for monthly payments that began in February 2021, of $4,310, with an escalating payment schedule each year thereafter.


Progressive Care leases its North Miami Beach pharmacy location under an operating lease agreement with a lease commencement date in September 2021. The term of the lease is 60 months with a termination date in August 2026. The lease calls for monthly payments of $5,237, with an escalating payment schedule each year thereafter.


Progressive Care also leases its Palm Beach County pharmacy locations under operating lease agreements expiring in February 2025.
