This long-term equity investment consists of an equity investment in a private company through preferred shares, which are not considered in-substance Common Stock, that is accounted for at cost, with adjustments for observable changes in prices or impairments, and is classified as long-term equity investment on our consolidated balance sheets with adjustments recognized in other (expense) income, net on our consolidated statements of operations. The Company has determined that the equity investment does not have a readily determinable fair value and elected the measurement alternative. Therefore, the equity investment’s carrying amount will be adjusted to fair value at the time of the next observable price change for the identical or similar investment of the same issuer or when an impairment is recognized. Each reporting period, the Company performs a qualitative assessment to evaluate whether the investment is impaired. The assessment includes a review of recent operating results and trends, recent sales/acquisitions of the investee securities, and other publicly available data. If the investment is impaired, the Company writes it down to its estimated fair value. As of March 31, 2023 and December 31, 2022 the long-term equity investment had a carrying value of $1,500,000 and $1,500,000, respectively.
Our CEO Eric Brock is a director of Dynam. An officer and a director of the Company have invested an aggregate of $35,000 in Dynam as of March 31, 2023.
