Financing Notes Receivable

Receivables [Abstract]  
Financing notes receivable are presented at face value plus accrued interest receivable and deferred loan origination costs, and net of related direct loan origination income. Each quarter the Company reviews its financing notes receivable to determine if the balances are realizable based on factors affecting the collectability of those balances. Factors may include credit quality, timeliness of required periodic payments, past due status, and management discussions with obligors. The Company evaluates the collectability of both interest and principal of each of its loans to determine if an allowance is needed. An allowance will be recorded when, based on current information and events, the Company determines it is probable that it will be unable to collect all amounts due according to the existing contractual terms. If the Company does determine an allowance is necessary, the amount deemed uncollectable is expensed in the period of determination. An insignificant delay or shortfall in the amount of payments does not necessarily result in the recording of an allowance. Generally, when interest and/or principal payments on a loan become past due, or if management otherwise does not expect the borrower to be able to service its debt and other obligations, the Company will place the loan on non-accrual status and will generally cease recognizing financing revenue on that loan until all principal and interest have been brought current. Interest income recognition is resumed if and when the previously reserved for financing notes become contractually current and performance has been demonstrated. Payments received subsequent to the recording of an allowance will be recorded as a reduction to principal.
Black Bison Financing Notes
On February 29, 2016, the Company foreclosed on 100 percent of the equity of BB Intermediate, the borrower of the Black Bison financing notes, as well as all of the other collateral securing the Black Bison Loans. The foreclosure was accepted in satisfaction of $2.0 million of the total outstanding loan balance. On June 16, 2016, the Company entered into an asset sale agreement with Expedition Water Solutions for the sale of specified disposal wells and related equipment as outlined in the sale agreement. Consideration received by the company included $748 thousand cash, net of fees, and the future right to royalty payments, which was recorded at its fair value of $450 thousand. The rights to future cash payments are tied to the future volumes of water disposed of in each of the wells sold. The Company did not record any financing revenue related to the Black Bison Loans for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 or any subsequent period. These notes were considered by the Company to be on non-accrual status and were reflected as such in the financial statements. For the nine months ended September 30, 2016, the Company recorded $832 thousand in provision for loan losses related to the Black Bison Loans.
Four Wood Financing Note Receivable
As a result of the decreased economic activity by SWD, the Company recorded a provision for loan loss with respect to the SWD Loans. The Consolidated Statements of Income for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 reflect a Provision for Loan Loss of $3.5 million, which includes $71 thousand of deferred origination income and $98 thousand of interest accrued under the original loan agreements. The loans were placed on non-accrual status during the first quarter of 2016.
