Leases
The Company is obligated under finance leases covering certain IT equipment that expire at various dates over the next three years. The Company also has non-cancellable operating leases, primarily for office space, that expire at various dates over the next three years. The Company has two leases that each contain a renewal option for a period of five years. Because at the inception of the leases the Company was not reasonably certain to exercise the options, the options were not considered in determining the lease terms. In December 2020, the Company notified landlords for the two leases that it was surrendering its right to occupy the office spaces and thereby would not be exercising its option to renew and would be exercising the leases early termination clauses allowing the lease terms to end in May 2022 and August 2022.

Wells Fargo Credit Facility
On January 15, 2021, the Company entered into and closed on the Loan and Security Agreement (the “line of credit”) with Wells Fargo Bank, National Association providing for a revolving line of credit. Pursuant to the line of credit, the Company granted a security interest in substantially all of its properties, right and assets (including certain equity interest of the Company's subsidiaries).
The revolving line has a maximum availability for borrowing of the lesser of $10 million or a defined borrowing base, less any outstanding letters of credit and the outstanding principal balance of any advances. The borrowing base is six times the prior quarter’s monthly average recurring revenue from eligible customer accounts. The revolving line has a January 15, 2023 maturity date and amounts borrowed bear interest at a floating per annum rate equal to 1.25% above Wells Fargo's prime rate, currently 3.25%. The Company will also be obligated to pay Wells Fargo an unused revolving line facility fee quarterly in arrears of 0.25% per annum of the average unused portion of the revolving line of credit during such quarterly period.
The line of credit contains customary affirmative and negative covenants and requirements relating to the Company and its operations. The affirmative covenants also require the Company to maintain at all times minimum quarterly recurring revenue and minimum liquidity. As of the last day of each fiscal quarter, commencing with the fiscal quarter ending March 31, 2021, the Company's recurring revenue may not be less than the amounts reflected in a financial covenant side letter agreement entered into between the Company and Wells Fargo on January 15, 2021 (the “Letter Agreement”). The Letter Agreement specifies minimum quarterly recurring revenue for the first, second, third and fourth quarters of 2021 of $5 million, $5 million, $6 million and $8 million, respectively. The Letter Agreement also specifies minimum quarterly recurring revenue of $8 million for all quarters of 2022. The line of credit agreement provides that the Company's liquidity, tested as of the last day of each fiscal quarter, of not less than $5 million, with liquidity generally defined as including the aggregate amount of unrestricted and
unencumbered cash and cash equivalents held at such time by the Company in accounts maintained with Wells Fargo or its affiliates in the United States, and the availability under the line of credit.
As of March 31, 2021, there were no amounts outstanding on the line of credit. For the quarter ending March 31, 2021, the Company's recurring revenue was $4,979,000, which was $21,000 less than the $5 million covenant requirement. The Company complied with the minimum liquidity covenant for the quarter ended March 31, 2021. On May 4, 2021, Wells Fargo waived the Company's non-compliance with the recurring revenue covenant for the quarter ended March 31, 2021 and after giving effect to the waiver, the Company had borrowing capacity under the line of credit of $10 million as of April 30, 2021.
Note Payable
On January 15, 2021, the Company repaid the secured promissory note date May 1, 2020 to ESW Holdings, Inc. in the amount of $1.83 million, which represented the deferred purchase price of the Company’s purchase and termination of the warrant to ESW Holdings, Inc. ("ESW warrant") dated January 12, 2018 for 925,000 shares of the Company’s common stock. In connection with the repayment of the promissory note, the related security agreement dated May 1, 2020 between the Company and ESW Holdings, Inc. was terminated. As provided in the promissory note, the Company would have been obligated to pay ESW Holdings, Inc. an additional $150,000 if a Fundamental Transaction, as defined in the promissory note, occurred on or prior to April 1, 2021. The contingent payment obligation expired on April 1, 2021 as no such Fundamental Transaction occurred.
Contingencies
In connection with the termination of merger agreement with Synacor, Inc. on June 29, 2020, Qumu is contingently obligated to pay Synacor, Inc. $1.45 million upon the occurrence of certain events with respect to an Acquisition Transaction (as defined in the mutual termination agreement with Synacor, Inc.) during the 15 months following the termination, that is, by September 29, 2021. The Company has not accrued a liability related to this contingent obligation as the payment is not triggered unless and until an Acquisition Transaction occurs.
The Company is exposed to asserted and unasserted claims encountered in the normal course of business. Legal costs related to loss contingencies are expensed as incurred. In the opinion of management, the resolution of these matters will not have a material adverse effect on the Company’s financial position or results of operations.
The Company’s standard arrangements include provisions indemnifying customers against liabilities if the Company's products infringe a third-party’s intellectual property rights. The Company has not incurred any costs in its continuing operations as a result of such indemnifications and has not accrued any liabilities related to such contingent obligations in the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements.
