The Company carried a deferred revenue balance associated with these transactions of $914,000, representing license fees collected upon the execution of the regional developer agreements. In accordance with ASC 952-605, the Company accounted for the development rights associated with the unsold or undeveloped franchises as a cancellation, and the respective deferred revenue was netted against the aggregate purchase price or recognized as revenue to the extent deferred revenue was in excess of the cash consideration paid. During the nine months ended September 30, 2015, the revenue recognized as excess deferred regional developer fees totaled $254,250.
