12.Massachusetts Lease Liability

On May 16, 2022, the Company, through its subsidiary CAC, completed the acquisition of the Taunton Facility for $13,047 cash consideration pursuant to a purchase option included in the Company’s lease with the previous owner of the Taunton Facility. Concurrently with the acquisition, CAC sold the Taunton Facility to IIP for $40,000 cash consideration. The Company also entered into a long-term lease for the Taunton Facility with a term of 20 years and a maturity date of May 15, 2042, with two 5-year extensions exercisable at the Company’s discretion (the “Taunton Financing Liability” or “Massachusetts Lease Liability”). The Taunton Financing Liability matures on May 15, 2042, with two five-year extension options. Lease payments are due monthly, and are subject to an annual escalation of 2.5% after two years. CAC anticipates no disruption to its operations as a result of these transactions.

Of the cash proceeds from IIP used to pay the Taunton Facility purchase price, $25,466 was remitted to an escrow account as a compensating balance to the note payable and the remaining proceeds were used to pay transaction expenses. As of September 30, 2022, there was a balance of $7,259 in the escrow account.

The early lease termination and acquisition of the Taunton Facility resulted in derecognizing a right of use (“ROU”) asset balance of $3,940, and lease liability balance of $4,454; and recognizing land and building balances of $6,266 and $6,268, respectively. The transaction with IIP was accounted for as a failed sale and leaseback transaction, where the Company retained the Taunton Facility balances included in property, plant, and equipment, and recognized a note payable of $40,000.

As of September 30, 2022, the Taunton Financing Liability had a balance of $39,849. Future maturities of the Taunton Financing Liability as of September 30, 2022 are as follows:
