Leases and Other Commitments

Substantially all of our leases are long-term operating leases primarily for warehouse and office for facilities with fixed payment terms between  two and 15 years. Operating lease cost primarily represents fixed lease payments for operating leases recognized on a straight-line basis over the applicable lease term and is included in costs and operating expenses on our consolidated statement of income. Our lease agreements do not contain any material residual value guarantees, material variable payment provisions or material restrictive covenants.
Our lease cost for the year ended December 31, 2020 and 2019 included the following components (in thousands):
Year ended Year ended
December 31, 2020 December 31, 2019
Operating lease cost $ 5,032  $ 6,106 
Short-term lease cost 622  698 
Less: sublease income (666) (1,022)
Total lease cost, net $ 4,988  $ 5,782 

For the year ended December 31, 2018, total lease expense on our operating leases under the previous lease standard, net of sublease rentals, was $2.2 million.
In the first quarter of 2020, we closed on a sale-leaseback agreement involving land and an office building utilized by our Aviation segment to conduct operations in Miami, Florida. Under the agreement, the land and building, with a net book value of $1.3 million was sold for a sale price of $2.6 million and leased back under a 6-year term operating lease commencing upon the closing of the transaction. The lease provides us with an option to extend the lease upon the expiration of its term in April 2026 for two additional five-year periods. In connection with the sale and leaseback transaction, we recognized a gain of $1.1 million after incurring $200 thousand in selling expenses.

We made cash payments of approximately $3.7 million and $5.7 million for operating leases during the year ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively, which are included in cash flows from operating activities in our consolidated statement of cash flows. As of December 31, 2020, the weighted average remaining lease term and discount rate for our operating leases were approximately 5.8 years and 5.4%, respectively.


We may have certain claims in the normal course of business, including legal proceedings, against us and against other parties. In our opinion, the resolution of these other claims will not have a material adverse effect on our results of operations, financial position or cash flows. However, because the results of any legal proceedings cannot be predicted with certainty, the amount of loss, if any, cannot be reasonably estimated.

Further, from time-to-time, government agencies investigate whether our operations are being conducted in accordance with applicable contractual and regulatory requirements. Government investigations of us, whether relating to government contracts or conducted for other reasons, could result in administrative, civil or criminal liabilities, including repayments, fines or penalties being imposed upon us, or could lead to suspension or debarment from future government contracting. Government investigations often take years to complete and most result in no adverse action against us. We believe, based upon current information, that the outcome of any such government disputes and investigations will not have a material adverse effect on our results of operations, financial condition or cash flows.
