As discussed in Note 11, the Lineal notes are unsecured. Due to the impact of COVID-19 on its operations, Lineal notified the Company that it currently has insufficient liquidity to make scheduled interest payments due under the notes. The Company is in negotiations with Lineal to restructure the notes receivable and an allowance has been applied to the principle and accrued interest of these notes (discussed further below) subject to completion of the negotiations. The Company performed an analysis of Lineal notes to estimate their value as of September 30, 2020. The Company analyzed information received from Lineal including Lineal's financial statements, which calculated the value of the notes and discounted the expected future payments due thereunder using a standard discounted cash flow model for the principal and accrued interest to the maturity date from September 30, 2020. The Company applied a discount of 15% based on factors in the Lineal notes to determine a valuation as of September 30, 2020.

Based on this analysis, the Company recorded a total allowance of $170,660 to reduce the reported value of the Lineal notes and accrued interest, fully reserving the current interest due of $54,941 with the remainder of $115,719 applied as an allowance to the principal value of the notes as of September 30, 2020.
