6. Fixed Assets
iBio CDMO is leasing its facility in Bryan, Texas as well as certain equipment from the Second Eastern Affiliate under a 34-year sublease (the "the Sublease"). See Note 10 for more details of the terms of the Sublease.
The economic substance of the Sublease is that the Company is financing the acquisition of the facility and equipment and, accordingly, the facility and equipment are recorded as assets and the lease is recorded as a liability. As the Sublease involves real estate and equipment, the Company separated the equipment component and accounted for the facility and equipment as if each was leased separately.
The following table summarizes by category the gross carrying value and accumulated depreciation of fixed assets (in thousands):
Depreciation expense was approximately $1,427,000 and $1,368,000 in 2019 and 2018, respectively. Depreciation of the assets under the capital lease amounted to approximately $1,185,000 and $1,222,000 in 2019 and 2018, respectively. In addition, $179,000 of fixed assets were written off in 2019 related to items previously capitalized that have subsequently been removed from service and were included in general and administrative expenses.
The entire disclosure for long-lived, physical assets used in the normal conduct of business and not intended for resale. Includes, but is not limited to, accounting policies and methodology, roll forwards, depreciation, depletion and amortization expense, including composite depreciation, accumulated depreciation, depletion and amortization expense, useful lives and method used, income statement disclosures, assets held for sale and public utility disclosures.
