NOTE 7—ACCRUED LIABILITIES AND DEFERRED REVENUE
Accrued liabilities are comprised of the following (in thousands):
Changes in the initial product warranty accrual, and the expenses incurred under the Company’s initial and extended warranties, for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014 were as follows (in thousands):
In June 2014, the Company extended the warranty for WaterLase systems from one year to two years for systems purchased after January 1, 2014.
Current portion of deferred revenue is comprised of the following (in thousands):
In connection with the Company’s initiatives to measure and improve customer satisfaction and concurrent with the launch of WaterLase iPlus 2.0 in February 2015, the Company introduced its exclusive Practice Growth Guarantee, which is a program that essentially guarantees growth in the Company’s clients’ dental practices through training on a select number of clinical procedures and with billing and marketing support for dentists included. Consistent with the Company’s standard terms and conditions applicable to all of its products, the Practice Growth Guarantee does not give the customer the right to return purchased laser systems or receive a refund of any amount of the purchase price. However, the Practice Growth Guarantee does provide for additional training opportunities and certain billing and marketing support activities to the customer. The Company has estimated additional deferred revenue related to the Practice Growth Guarantee for all WaterLase iPlus 2.0 system sales during the nine months ended September 30, 2015 to be approximately $133,000.
During the three months ended September 30, 2014, the Company performed a review of its training service policies and procedures and determined that substantially all of the training service for new customers was used within nine months of the product purchase. Accordingly, and consistent with this information on the exhaustion of training service, the Company changed the period over which deferred training service revenue is being recognized from an estimated period of 24 months to nine months.
The entire disclosure for accounts payable and accrued liabilities at the end of the reporting period.
