Investment in Software Company
As of December 31, 2012, Qumu Corporation's investment in BriefCam aggregated $2.8 million, consisting of $2.3 million in convertible preferred stock and a $500,000 convertible note receivable, resulting in a minority interest of less than 20%. BriefCam is a privately-held Israeli company that develops video synopsis technology to augment security and surveillance systems to facilitate review of surveillance video. On January 16, 2013, the Company converted the aforementioned $500,000 note receivable into BriefCam's convertible preferred stock and concurrently participated in an additional round of funding of BriefCam's preferred stock issuance with a cash investment of approximately $350,000. In connection with the conversion of the note receivable and additional investment in BriefCam, the Company received warrants to purchase additional preferred stock in the same series and at the same price as the investment made in January 2013. Qumu's total investment in BriefCam of $3.1 million as of December 31, 2013 continues to represent a minority ownership of less than 20%. Qumu's investment in BriefCam of $3.1 million and $2.8 million at December 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012, respectively, is included in other non-current assets in the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets.
Because Qumu's ownership interest is less than 20% and it has no other rights or privileges that enable it to exercise significant influence over the operating and financial policies of BriefCam, Qumu accounts for this equity investment using the cost method. Through its seat on BriefCam's board of directors, Qumu monitors BriefCam's results of operations and business plan, and is not aware of any events or circumstances that would indicate a decline in the carrying value of its investment.
