Our billboard operations are conducted through our subsidiary, Link Media Holdings, LLC, our insurance operations are conducted through our subsidiary, General Indemnity Group, LLC, and our broadband operations are conducted through our subsidiary, FIF AireBeam LLC.

We completed an acquisition of an outdoor advertising business and entered the outdoor advertising industry on June 19, 2015. Since our initial acquisition, we have completed seventeen additional acquisitions of outdoor advertising businesses.

On April 20, 2016, we completed an acquisition of a surety bond brokerage business. On December 7, 2016, we acquired a fidelity and surety bond insurance company. From July through November 2017 we completed the acquisition of two surety brokerage businesses and acquired a majority stake in a third surety brokerage business, thus expanding our operations in insurance. During the first quarter of 2020, we purchased the non-controlling interest in our third surety brokerage business from the minority owner.

On March 10, 2020, we completed an acquisition of a rural broadband internet provider.

In our opinion, all adjustments, consisting of normal recurring adjustments, necessary for a fair presentation of unaudited consolidated financial position and the unaudited consolidated results of operations for interim periods presented have been reflected herein. The results of operations for the interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year. Notes to the interim unaudited consolidated financial statements which would substantially duplicate the disclosures contained in the audited financial statements for the years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018 as reported in our Annual Report on Form 10-K, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, which we refer to as the "SEC," on March 13, 2020, have been omitted.

NOTE 2. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES(Continued)

Consolidation Policy (Continued)

All significant intercompany profits, losses, transactions and balances have been eliminated in consolidation.

Revenues

A majority of our billboard contracts had been accounted for under Financial Accounting Standards Board, which we refer to as the "FASB," Accounting Standards Codification, which we refer to as "ASC," 840. Contracts which began prior to January 1, 2019 and are accounted for under ASC 840 will continue to be accounted for as a lease until the contract ends or is modified. Contracts beginning or modified on or after January 1, 2019 which do not meet the criteria of a lease under ASC 842 are accounted for under ASC 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers. The majority of our advertising space contracts do not meet the definition of a lease under ASC 842.

Revenue Recognition

Billboard Rentals

We generate revenue from outdoor advertising through the leasing of advertising space on billboards. The terms of the operating leases generally range from less than one month to three years and are generally billed monthly. Revenue for advertising space rental is recognized on a straight-line basis over the term of the contract. Advertising revenue is reported net of agency commissions. Agency commissions are calculated based on a stated percentage applied to gross billing revenue for operations. Payments received in advance of being earned are recorded as deferred revenue. Another component of billboard rentals consists of production services which include creating and printing advertising copy. Contract revenues for production services are accounted for under ASC 606 and are recognized at a point in time upon satisfaction of the contract, which is typically less than one week.

Deferred Revenues

We record deferred revenues when cash payments are received in advance of being earned or when we have an unconditional right to consideration before satisfying our performance obligation. The term between invoicing and when a payment is due is not significant. For certain services we require payment before the product or services are delivered to the customer. The balance of deferred revenue is considered short-term and will be recognized in revenue within twelve months.

NOTE 2. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES(Continued)

Revenue Recognition (Continued)

Premiums and Unearned Premium Reserves

Premiums written are recognized as revenues based on a pro-rata daily calculation over the respective terms of the policies in-force. The cost of reinsurance ceded is initially written as prepaid reinsurance premiums and is amortized over the reinsurance contract period in proportion to the amount of insurance protection provided. Premiums ceded are netted against premiums written.

Commissions

We generate revenue from commissions on surety bond sales through third party carriers and account for commissions under ASC 606. Insurance commissions are earned from various insurance companies based upon our agency agreements with them. We arrange with various insurance companies for the provision of a surety bond for entities that require a surety bond. The insurance company sets the price of the bond. The contract with the insurance company is fulfilled when the bond is issued by the insurance agency on behalf of the insurance company. The insurance commissions are calculated based upon a stated percentage applied to the gross premiums on bonds. Commissions are recognized at a point in time, on a bond-by-bond basis as of the policy effective date and are generally nonrefundable.

Broadband Revenues

Broadband revenue is derived principally from internet services and is recognized on a straight-line basis over the term of the contract in the period the services are rendered. Revenue received or receivable in advance of the delivery of services is included in deferred revenue.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

In December 2019, the FASB issued guidance which simplifies the accounting for income taxes by removing certain exceptions to the general principles and improves consistent application of Generally Accepted Accounting Principles for other areas by clarifying and amending existing guidance. This guidance is effective January 1, 2021. We are evaluating the effect of adopting this new accounting guidance but do not expect adoption will have a material impact on our disclosures.

In January 2020, the FASB issued ASU No. 2020-01, Clarifying the Interactions between Topic 321, Investments-Equity Securities, Topic 323, Investments-Equity Method and Joint Ventures, and Topic 815, Derivatives and Hedging. This ASU clarifies that when accounting for certain equity securities, a company should consider observable transactions before applying or upon discontinuing the equity method of accounting for the purposes of applying the measurement alternative. This guidance is effective January 1, 2021, with early adoption permitted. We are evaluating the effect of adopting this new accounting guidance but do not expect adoption will have a material impact on our financial statements.

NOTE 6. BUSINESS ACQUISITIONS

2020 Acquisitions

Broadband Acquisition

On March 10, 2020, FIF AireBeam, LLC, our wholly-owned subsidiary, acquired substantially all of the business assets of FibAire Communications, LLC, which we refer to as "FibAire", a broadband services provider, as well as other assets used in the business operations owned by entities related to FibAire. The acquisition was accounted for as a business combination under the provisions of ASC 805. Under the terms of the asset purchase agreement, all purchased assets were sold on a debt- free basis to AireBeam. The total purchase price of $13,712,491 was paid 90% in cash and the remaining 10% of the purchase price was paid by issuing to FibAire 10% of the outstanding equity of AireBeam. $1,851,186 of the cash proceeds will be held in escrow for a minimum of one year from the closing to provide indemnification for certain representations and warranties made by FibAire in the asset purchase agreement. At any time, FibAire has the option, but not the obligation, to sell AireBeam its entire ownership interest in AireBeam. AireBeam would be obligated to purchase the units and pay for the purchase over a three-year period if FibAire elects to exercise this option. At any time after December 31, 2023, AireBeam has the option, but not the obligation, to purchase FibAire's ownership interest in AireBeam, with payment due in full upon exercise of the option. The purchase price for the units under either of these put/call options is based upon a multiple of earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, and certain other expenses.

We are in the process of obtaining a final third-party valuation of the tangible and intangible assets, and therefore the initial allocation of the purchase price is subject to refinement. The purchase was recorded at fair value and preliminarily allocated as follows:

Equity Investments

On May 31, 2018, we invested $19,058,485 in voting common stock of CB&T Holding Corporation, which we refer to as "CBT," the privately held parent company of Crescent Bank & Trust. Our investment represents 14.99% of CBT's outstanding common stock. CBT is a closely held corporation, whose majority ownership rests with one family.

In late December 2017, we invested $10 million in non-voting common units of Dream Finders Holdings LLC, which we refer to as "DFH", the parent company of Dream Finders Homes, LLC, a national home builder with operations in Florida, Texas, Georgia, Colorado and the greater northern Virginia and Maryland areas. During the first quarter of 2020, we obtained additional non-voting shares of DFH which increased our ownership in the company to approximately 5.6%. As a result, we began applying the equity method of accounting for our investment in DFH prospectively from January 1, 2020, the date we obtained the additional shares.

In May 2019, our subsidiary BOC DFH, LLC invested an additional $12 million in DFH through the purchase of preferred units. DFH is required to pay to us a mandatory preferred return of at least 14% per annum on such preferred units and 25% of our preferred units are convertible, at our option, into non-voting common units after May 29, 2020 and the remaining preferred units are convertible, at our option, into non-voting common units after May 29, 2021. The mandatory 14% preferred return increases if the preferred units purchased are not redeemed or converted within one year of purchase. Also, we obtain additional beneficial conversion terms if the preferred units are not redeemed by May 29, 2021. On January 13, 2020, DFH redeemed $6,000,000 of the preferred units purchased in May 2019.

During January 2018, we exchanged our convertible note receivable from Breezeway Homes, Inc., which we refer to as "Breezeway," for 31,227 shares of preferred stock. The preferred stock is noncumulative and has a dividend rate of $.2665 per share, should dividends be declared. The preferred stock has one vote per share and is convertible into whole shares of common stock, determined according to the conversion formula contained in Breezeway's amended and restated articles of incorporation. In addition, our investment provides us with a multi-year right to sell insurance and/or warranty products through Breezeway's software platform to its customers.

We reviewed our investments as of June 30, 2020 and concluded that no impairment to the carrying value was required.

Investment in Unconsolidated Affiliates

We have various investments in equity method affiliates, whose businesses are in home building, real estate, real estate services, and asset management. Our interest in these affiliates ranges from 5.6% to 30%. Two of the investments in affiliates, Logic Real Estate Companies, LLC and 24t h Street Holding Company, LLC, having a combined carrying amount of $746,123 as of June 30, 2020, are managed by an entity controlled by a member of our board of directors.

In March 2020, we invested $1,500,000 in 24t h Street Fund I, LLC. The fund is managed by 24t h Street Asset Management LLC, a subsidiary of 24t h Street Holding Company, LLC, and will focus on opportunities within secured lending and direct investments in commercial real estate.

NOTE 9. FAIR VALUE

At June 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019, our financial instruments included cash, cash equivalents, restricted cash, receivables, marketable equity securities, certain investments, accounts payable, and long-term debt. The carrying value of cash, cash equivalents, restricted cash, receivables, and accounts payable approximates fair value due to the short-term nature of the instruments. The fair value of long-term debt is estimated using quoted prices for similar debt (level 2 in the fair value hierarchy). At June 30, 2020, the estimated fair value of our long-term debt was $18,626,174 which exceeds the carrying amount of $18,060,000.

Marketable equity securities, corporate bonds, and U.S. Treasury securities available for sale are reported at fair values. Substantially all of the fair value is determined using observed prices of publicly traded securities, level 1 in the fair value hierarchy. Fair values for equity investments in private companies are not readily available, but are estimated to approximate fair value.

NOTE 11. CAPITAL STOCK

In February 2018, we filed a shelf registration statement with the SEC allowing us to sell up to $200,000,000 of our securities. This registration statement was declared effective by the SEC on February 9, 2018. We subsequently entered into a Sales Agreement with Cowen and Company, LLC, which we refer to as "Cowen," relating to the sale of shares of our Class A common stock to be offered. In accordance with the terms of the Sales Agreement, we may offer and sell from time to time up to $50,000,000 of shares of our Class A common stock through Cowen acting as our agent. Cowen is not required to sell any specific amount of securities, but will act as our sales agent using commercially reasonable efforts consistent with its normal trading and sales practices, on mutually agreed terms between Cowen and us. The compensation to Cowen for sales of Class A common stock sold pursuant to the Sales Agreement will be an amount equal to 3% of the gross proceeds of any shares of Class A common stock sold under the Sales Agreement. From March 2018 through August 20, 2019, we sold through Cowen an aggregate of 2,141,452 shares of our Class A common stock under this "at the market" offering, resulting in gross proceeds to us of $49,999,625. For the period from January 1, through August 20, 2019, we sold through Cowen 942,223 shares of our Class A common stock under this at-the-market offering, resulting in gross proceeds to us of $22,753,943 and net proceeds of $22,059,015 after offering costs of $694,928.

On August 13, 2019, we entered into a second Sales Agreement with Cowen, relating to the sale of additional shares of our Class A common stock to be offered. In accordance with the terms of the second Sales Agreement, we may offer and sell from time to time up to $75,000,000 of shares of our Class A common stock through Cowen acting as our agent. Cowen is not required to sell any specific amount of securities, but will act as our sales agent using commercially reasonable efforts consistent with its normal trading and sales practices, on mutually agreed terms between Cowen and us. The compensation to Cowen for sales of Class A common stock sold pursuant to the Sales Agreement will be an amount equal to 3% of the gross proceeds of any shares of Class A common stock sold under the Sales Agreement. From August 21, 2019 through December 31, 2019, we sold through Cowen 448,880 shares of our Class A common stock under the second "at the market" offering, resulting in gross proceeds to us of $9,450,789 and net proceeds of $9,122,227, after offering costs of $328,562. During the second quarter of fiscal 2020, we sold under the new "at the market" offering 40,455 shares of our Class A common stock for gross proceeds of $669,751.

On March 18, 2020, our Board of Directors authorized and approved a share repurchase program for us to repurchase up to $20,000,000 worth of shares of our Class A common stock, which we refer to as the "Repurchase Program." Under the Repurchase Program, we may repurchase shares, from time to time, in solicited or unsolicited transactions in the open market, privately-negotiated transactions, or transactions pursuant to a Rule 10b5-1 plan. The Repurchase Program does not obligate us to purchase any particular number of shares and will run through the earlier of June 30, 2021, or our decision that the Repurchase Program is no longer consistent with our short-term and long-term objectives. We have not repurchased any shares during fiscal year 2020.

On May 28, 2020, we entered into an underwriting agreement, which we refer to as the "underwriting agreement," with Wells Fargo Securities, LLC and Cowen and Company, LLC, as joint lead book-running managers for a public offering of 3,200,000 shares, which we refer to as the "firm shares," of our Class A common stock at a public offering price of $16.00 per share. Under the terms of the underwriting agreement, we granted the underwriters an option, exercisable for 30 days, to purchase up to an additional 480,000 shares of Class A common stock at the public offering price less underwriting discounts and commissions, which we refer to as the "option shares." Adam Peterson and Alex Rozek, our Co-Chairmen, together with another member of our board of directors and another employee, purchased, directly or through their affiliates, an aggregate of 39,375 shares of Class A common stock in the offering at the public offering price. On June 2, 2020, we announced the completion of the public offering for a total of 3,680,000 shares, including both the firm shares and all of the option shares issued as a result of the underwriters' exercise in full of their over-allotment option, resulting in total gross proceeds to us of approximately $58.9 million. We raised this capital to fund the planned expansion of our recently acquired fiber-to-the-home broadband, telecommunication business, to seek to grow our Link billboard business through the acquisitions of additional billboard businesses, and for general corporate purposes. We do not have current agreements, commitments or understandings for any specific material acquisitions at this time. The shares were sold in the offering pursuant to the Company's shelf registration statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-222853) that was declared effective on February 9, 2018, as supplemented by a prospectus supplement dated May 28, 2020.

Our Board of Directors also authorized us to enter into written trading plans under Rule 10b5-1 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, which we refer to as the "Exchange Act." Adopting a trading plan that satisfies the conditions of Rule 10b5-1 allows a company to repurchase its shares at times when it might otherwise be prevented from doing so due to self-imposed trading blackout periods or pursuant to insider trading laws. Under any Rule 10b5-1 trading plan, our third-party broker, subject to Securities and Exchange Commission regulations regarding certain price, market, volume and timing constraints, would have authority to purchase our Class A common stock in accordance with the terms of the plan. We may from time to time, enter into Rule 10b5-1 trading plans to facilitate the repurchase of our Class A common shares pursuant to our Repurchase Program.

As of June 30, 2020, there were 104,772 outstanding warrants for our Class B common stock and 784 outstanding warrants for our Class A common stock. A summary of warrant activity for the six months ended June 30, 2020 is presented in the following table.

NOTE 12. LONG-TERMDEBT

On August 12, 2019, Link Media Holdings, Inc., ("Link"), a wholly owned subsidiary of Boston Omaha Corporation ("BOC"), which owns and operates BOC's billboard businesses, entered into a Credit Agreement (the "Credit Agreement") with First National Bank of Omaha (the "Lender") under which Link may borrow up to $40,000,000 (the "Credit Facility"). The Credit Agreement provides for an initial term loan ("Term Loan 1"), an incremental term loan ("Term Loan 2") and a revolving line of credit. These loans are secured by all assets of Link and its operating subsidiaries, including a pledge of equity interests of each of Link's subsidiaries. In addition, each of Link's subsidiaries has joined as a guarantor to the obligations under the Credit Agreement. These loans are not guaranteed by BOC or any of BOC's non-billboard businesses.

Link has borrowed $18,060,000 through Term Loan 1 under the Credit Facility. Principal amounts under each of Term Loan 1 and Term Loan 2 are payable in monthly installments according to a 15-year amortization schedule. For Term Loan 1, these payments are due commencing on July 1, 2020. For Term Loan 2, these principal payments are due commencing on the last day of the month following the closing of Term Loan 2. Both term loans are payable in full on August 12, 2026. Term Loan 1 has a fixed interest rate of 4.25% per annum with interest only payments due through July 1, 2020. Term Loan 2 has a loan availability in an amount not to exceed $5,500,000 and must be drawn before September 1, 2020. If utilized, Term Loan 2 will have a fixed rate of interest determined using the seven-year Treasury rate plus 195 basis points subject to a floor of 4.20% per annum.

The revolving line of credit loan facility has a $5,000,000 maximum availability. Interest payments are based on the 30-day LIBOR rate plus an applicable margin ranging between 2.00 and 2.50% dependent on Link's consolidated leverage ratio. The revolving line of credit is due and payable on August 11, 2021.

Long-term debt included within our consolidated balance sheet as of June 30, 2020 consists of Term Loan 1 borrowings of $18,060,000, of which $951,588 is classified as current. There were no amounts outstanding related to the revolving line of credit and Term Loan 2 as of June 30, 2020.

During the term of the Credit Facility, Link is required to comply with the following financial covenants: A consolidated leverage ratio for any test period ending on the last day of any fiscal quarter of Link (a) beginning with the fiscal quarter ending December 31, 2019 of not greater than 3.50 to 1.00, (b) beginning with the fiscal quarter ending December 31, 2020 of not greater than 3.25 to 1.00, and (c) beginning with the fiscal quarter ending December 31, 2021 and thereafter, of not greater than 3.00 to 1.0; minimum consolidated fixed charge coverage ratio of not less than 1.15 to 1.00 measured quarterly, based on rolling four quarters, with testing to commence as of December 31, 2019 based on the December 31, 2019 audited financial statements. The Company was in compliance with these covenants as of June 30, 2020.

The Credit Agreement includes representations and warranties, reporting covenants, affirmative covenants, negative covenants, financial covenants and events of default customary for financings of this type. Upon the occurrence of an event of default the Lender may accelerate the loans. Upon the occurrence of certain insolvency and bankruptcy events of default the loans will automatically accelerate.

NOTE 13. LEASES

We enter into operating lease contracts primarily for land and office space. Arrangements are evaluated at inception to determine whether such arrangements contain a lease. Operating leases include land lease contracts and contracts for the use of office space. In accordance with the transition guidance of ASC 842, such arrangements are included in our balance sheet as of January 1, 2019.

Right of use assets, which we refer to as "ROU assets," represent the right to use an underlying asset for the lease term, and lease liabilities represent the obligation to make lease payments arising from the lease. Operating lease ROU assets and liabilities are recognized at the commencement date based on the present value of lease payments over the respective lease term. Lease expense is recognized on a straight-line basis over the lease term.

Certain of our operating lease agreements include rental payments based on a percentage of revenue and others include rental payments adjusted periodically for inflationary changes. Percentage rent contracts, in which lease expense is calculated as a percentage of advertising revenue, and payments due to changes in inflationary adjustments are included within variable rent expense, which is accounted for separately from periodic straight-line lease expense.

NOTE 13. LEASES(Continued)

Many operating lease contracts expire; however, we may continue to operate the leased assets after the rights and obligations of the lease agreements have expired. Such contracts, once expired, are considered to be leases and future expected payments are included in operating lease liabilities or ROU assets, using a 10 year extension period. Many of our leases entered into in connection with land provide options to extend the terms of the agreements. Generally, renewal periods are included in minimum lease payments when calculating the lease liabilities as, for most leases, we consider exercise of such options to be reasonably certain. As a result, optional terms and payments are included within the lease liability. Our lease agreements do not contain any material residual value guarantees or material restrictive covenants.

The implicit rate within our lease agreements is generally not determinable. As such, we use the incremental borrowing rate, which we refer to as "IBR," to determine the present value of lease payments at the commencement of the lease. The IBR, as defined in ASC 842, is "the rate of interest that a lessee would have to pay to borrow on a collateralized basis over a similar term an amount equal to the lease payments in a similar economic environment."

Overview

We are currently engaged in outdoor billboard advertising and surety insurance and related brokerage businesses and commenced a broadband business in March 2020. In addition, we hold minority investments in commercial real estate management and brokerage services, a bank focused on servicing the automotive loan market, and a homebuilding company with operations located primarily in the Southeast United States.

Billboards: In June 2015, we commenced our billboard business operations through acquisitions by Link, our wholly-owned subsidiary, of smaller billboard companies located in the Southeast United States and Wisconsin. During July and August 2018, we acquired the membership interest or assets of three larger billboard companies. These transactions include our acquisition on July 31, 2018 of Tammy Lynn for approximately $16 million, our acquisition on August 22, 2018 of substantially all of the assets of Key for approximately $38 million, and our acquisition on August 31, 2018 of Waitt for approximately $84 million. We believe that the acquisitions of Waitt and Key, with over 1,600 and 700 billboard structures, respectively, make us a leading outdoor billboard advertising company in the markets we serve in the Midwest. As of July 31, 2020, we operate approximately 3,000 billboards with approximately 5,600 advertising faces. One of our principal business objectives is to continue to acquire additional billboard assets through acquisitions of existing billboard businesses in the United States when they can be made at what we believe to be attractive prices relative to other opportunities generally available to us.

Surety Insurance: In April 2016, our surety insurance business commenced with the acquisition of a surety insurance brokerage business with a national internet-based presence. In December 2016, we completed the acquisition of UCS a surety insurance company, which at that time was licensed to issue surety bonds in only nine states. UCS now has licenses to operate in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. In addition, over the last three years, we have also acquired additional surety insurance brokerage businesses located in various regions of the United States.

Broadband Services: In March 2020, we commenced our broadband services business with the acquisition of substantially all of the assets of FibAire. We provide these services to over 7,000 customers located in Arizona and hope to continue to expand this business in Arizona and other locales.

Investments:

  • Since September 2015, we have made a series of investments in commercial real estate, a commercial real estate management, brokerage and related services business as well as an asset management business. We currently own 30% of Logic and approximately 49.9% of 24th Street Holding Company, LLC, both directly and indirectly through our ownership in Logic.
  • In December 2017, we invested $10 million in common stock of Dream Finders Holdings LLC, the parent company of Dream Finders Homes, LLC, a national home builder with operations in Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, South Carolina, Texas and northern Virginia. In addition to its homebuilding operations, DFH's subsidiaries provide mortgage loan origination and title insurance services to homebuyers. In May 2019, we invested, through one of our subsidiaries, an additional $12 million in DFH through the purchase of preferred units. DFH is required to pay us a mandatory preferred return of at least 14% per annum on such preferred units and 25% of our preferred units are convertible, at our option, into non-voting common units until May 30, 2020 and the remaining preferred units are convertible, at our option, into non-voting common units after May 29, 2021. The mandatory 14% preferred return increases if the preferred units purchased are not redeemed or converted within one year of purchase. Also, we obtain additional beneficial conversion terms if the preferred units are not redeemed by May 29, 2021. On January 13, 2020, DFH redeemed $6 million of the preferred units. During July 2020, DFH redeemed the remaining $6 million of preferred units.
  • In May 2018, we invested, through one of our subsidiaries, approximately $19 million through the purchase of common stock of CBT Holding Corporation, the privately-held parent company of Crescent Bank & Trust, Inc. Crescent is located in New Orleans and generates the majority of its revenues from indirect subprime automobile lending across the United States.

In each of our businesses, we hope to expand our geographic reach and market share and seek to develop a competitive advantage and/or brand name for our services, which we hope will be a differentiating factor for customers. Our insurance market primarily services small contractors, small and medium-sized businesses and individuals required to provide surety bonds (i) in connection with their work for government agencies and others, (ii) in connection with contractual obligations, or (iii) to meet regulatory requirements and other needs. We have expanded the licensing of the UCS business to all 50 states and the District of Columbia. In outdoor advertising, our plan is to continue to grow this business through acquisitions of billboard assets. We also expect to expand our broadband services in Arizona and in the future in other locations. We also expect to continue to make additional investments in real estate management service businesses, as well as in other businesses. In the future, we may expand the range of services we provide in the insurance sector, seek to continue to expand our billboard operations and broadband services and to possibly consider acquisitions of other businesses, as well as investments, in other sectors. Our decision to expand outside of these current business sectors we serve or in which we have made investments will be based on the opportunity to acquire businesses which we believe provide the potential for sustainable earnings at an attractive level relative to capital employed and, with regard to investment, we believe have the potential to provide attractive returns.

We seek to enter markets where we believe demand for our services will grow in the coming years due to certain barriers to entry and/or to anticipated long- term demand for these services. In the outdoor billboard business, government restrictions often limit the number of additional billboards that may be constructed. At the same time, advances in billboard technology provide the opportunity to improve revenues through the use of digital display technologies and other new technologies. In the surety insurance business, new insurance companies must be licensed by state agencies that impose capital, management and other strict requirements on these insurers. These hurdles are at the individual state level, with statutes often providing wide latitude to regulators to impose judgmental requirements upon new entrants. In addition, new distribution channels in certain areas of surety may provide a new opportunity. In the real estate management services market, we believe the continued growth of commercial real estate in many sections of the United States will provide opportunities for management services for the foreseeable future. We also believe our investment in both CBT and DFH provides the opportunity for each company to significantly grow its business. We invest our available capital and the surplus capital from UCS in a wide range of securities, including equity securities of large cap public companies, various corporate and government bonds and U.S. treasuries. In broadband services, we believe that our fiber to the home services provide higher rates of transmission and improved speed to consumers and that, once built, other competitors may be less willing to compete in communities which we serve.

Recent Developments - Impact of the COVID-19 Disease on Our Business

The global outbreak of a novel strain of coronavirus ("COVID-19") has had a significant impact on many industries and companies, and is also impacting our business. We cannot presently estimate the significance, extent or duration of the overall operational and financial impact of COVID-19 on our business. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, economic uncertainties have arisen which are likely to negatively impact our net income and surplus. The extent to which the COVID-19 pandemic impacts our business, net income, surplus, as well as our capital and liquidity position, will depend on future developments, which are highly uncertain and cannot be estimated, including the scope and duration of the pandemic and actions taken by governmental authorities and other third parties in response to the pandemic. However, the COVID-19 pandemic has had various impacts on us, and is expected to have additional impacts on us, including, among other things, the following, which have had an adverse effect and may in the future have a material adverse effect on our business, financial performance and condition, operating results and cash flows and stock price:

  • We expect that the impact of "stay at home" and other governmental mandates closing retail and other businesses will adversely impact revenues for our billboard business and the ability of certain customers to pay outstanding invoices. For the quarter ended June 30, 2020, our revenues from our billboard business decreased by 6.9% from revenues for the quarter ended June 30, 2019.
  • We expect to sell fewer surety bonds as some of the markets we serve (contractors, small businesses, residential and commercial lease) have been impacted by the COVID-19 virus. In New York and other states where we sell residential lease bonds, eviction actions have been suspended and it is unclear what impact the COVID-19 pandemic will have on lease defaults. Due to the current disruption in this market, we have at least temporarily suspended issuing new rental insurance bonds in most instances, which could significantly reduce the revenues at our UCS business. These bonds accounted for approximately 46% of GIG's written premium during the year ended December 31, 2019 and 33% of our written premium during the six months ended June 30, 2020. UCS has also implemented an increasingly conservative loss reserving methodology for this program. While UCS believes that these increased reserving levels will adequately cover the possibility of greater risk exposures, this is not assured and these reserves may prove inadequate if defaults exceed historical experience. Furthermore, various state and local legislators are actively contemplating new laws and civil actions which could meaningfully impact the insurance industry generally and, specifically our surety business. We recognize revenues from the sale of these bonds over the life of the bond so the suspension of certain rental bond sales and decreases in other surety bond sales may not immediately impact our reported revenues in the short term.
  • In our insurance business, we rely in significant part on reinsurance arrangements for some of our insurance business. Although we do not currently anticipate any loss of our reinsurance and have recently renewed reinsurance arrangements, insurance markets are currently highly volatile, and any loss would place our other UCS assets at risk. We also anticipate that our reinsurance premium costs could increase substantially, which higher costs we may not be able to pass through to our customers.
  • In the broadband telecommunications business, we expect demand for services to remain high but we may experience reduced revenues if customers are unable to pay their bills due to loss of employment or other inability to pay.
  • We expect to continue to seek additional acquisitions of businesses. Current market conditions may result in fewer companies wishing to be acquired, which could delay certain of our growth plans. Other companies available for sale may have had their operations severely impacted due to the pandemic and may not generate the returns we generally seek from acquisitions. While the cost to acquire such companies would potentially be lower than the purchase price we might pay in a more normal market environment, the risks associated with any newly acquired company may also be greater.
  • We hold minority investments in Logic, DFH and CBT. Financial results for both Logic and DFH are included in our results of operations. We do expect the COVID-19 pandemic to adversely impact all three investments, but we are not able to assess currently the potential impact to these businesses.
    • For Logic, we expect that certain of its fee income from brokerage and property management will be adversely impacted but that some of its other real estate finance operations may experience growth
    • For DFH, we expect that new home sales may decrease during the crisis due to potential buyers' concerns about the general economy and the impact of higher unemployment rates, however, inventories remain relatively low relative to other macro-economic downturns.
    • For CBT, we expect a reduction in demand for vehicle purchases in the near term.
    • Both DFH and CBT borrow and we do not have guidance on what impact this pandemic will have on their ability to continue to borrow in the future and pay down any debt. We believe in the potential long-term value and success of both DFH and CBT and would consider providing additional funding if necessary.
    • Any increase in unemployment or underemployment may lead to an increase in the number of loan delinquencies and auto repossessions and have an adverse impact on CBT. The unemployment rate has risen significantly in the last month and could continue to rise to a level that is uncertain at this time. People who are not employed, are underemployed, or are concerned about the loss of their jobs are less likely to purchase new homes and automobiles, may be forced to try to sell the homes they own, and may face difficulties in making required auto loan payments. Therefore, any increase in unemployment or underemployment may lead to an increase in the number of loan delinquencies experienced by CBT and have an adverse impact on DFH both by reducing demand for the homes DFH builds and by increasing the supply of homes for sale.

  • We held $50.5 million in a few publicly traded investment securities at June 30, 2020. Since the pandemic started in the United States in early March, the market prices for these securities have dropped significantly. We believe that the prices for these securities will continue to be volatile during the pandemic and any ongoing economic downturn which may follow the cessation of the pandemic. Our investments in publicly traded securities are solely in larger market capitalized companies (market capitalizations in excess of $4 billion at the time of purchase).
  • Boston Omaha is debt free as are some of our subsidiaries. However, Link's billboard business has borrowed to date $18 million under a term loan arrangement which is due in August 2026 and which provides for monthly principal payments amortized over a 15-year term commencing July 1, 2020. Under its credit arrangement, Link may borrow additional funds, including under a $5 million revolver, which has not been drawn upon since the inception of the loan in August 2019 and a second term loan which may be drawn down prior to September 1, 2020. Any loans are guaranteed by Link's operating subsidiaries but these loans are not guaranteed by us or any of our other non-Link subsidiaries. Link's term loan requires monthly principal repayments commencing in July 2020 and we can cure certain financial covenant defaults by paying any monthly principal payment then due. As a result, we do not currently anticipate any adverse impact to the Link credit facility.
  • All our acquisitions involve assets with anticipated long lives, and while we do not currently anticipate any material write-off of goodwill or other significant impairment of assets, any unforeseen extensive economic downturn could cause us to incur significant impairment charges. At June 30, 2020, we recorded goodwill of approximately $113.7 million, or 24.2% of our total assets at June 30, 2020. Any significant impairment charges could materially adversely impact our balance sheet.
  • Our ability to conduct our business operations has not been materially impacted by the pandemic and absent a future larger scale pandemic or illnesses involving a significant portion of our work force, we do not foresee a significant impact on our ability to continue to deliver services. Our information technology systems allow for remote computing by most of our employees who require access to these systems. Our accounting systems also allow us to fully monitor all financial activities and we do not expect the pandemic to have a materially adverse impact on our system of internal controls. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we moved to a "remote work" model for office personnel in March 2020. This model has significantly increased the use of remote networking and online conferencing services that enable employees to work outside of our corporate infrastructure and, in some cases, use their own personal devices. This has resulted in increased demand for information technology resources and exposes us to additional cybersecurity risks, including unauthorized access to sensitive information as a result of increased remote access and the risk of other cybersecurity related incidents. None of our businesses require a manufacturing facility or other physical assets which cannot currently operate.
  • As a result of these recent developments, we have implemented work-from-home policies for almost all our employees. The effects of these orders, government- imposed quarantines and our work-from-home policies may negatively impact productivity, disrupt our business and could delay timelines, the magnitude of which will depend, in part, on the length and severity of the restrictions and other limitations on our ability to conduct our business in the ordinary course. Quarantines, shelter-in-place and similar government orders, or the perception that such orders, shutdowns or other restrictions on the conduct of business operations could occur, related to COVID-19 or other infectious diseases could impact personnel at third-party supplier facilities in the United States and other countries.
  • At June 30, 2020, we had $40.4 million in cash and cash equivalents, $78.7 million in U.S. treasury securities and $50.5 million in marketable equity securities. We may also continue to sell shares of our Class A common stock through our "at the market" offering. Concerns over the economic impact of COVID-19 pandemic have caused extreme volatility in financial and other capital markets which has and may continue to adversely impact our stock price and our ability to access capital markets.
  • To the extent the COVID-19 pandemic adversely affects our business and financial results, it may also have the effect of heightening many of the other risks described in the "Risk Factors" sections of both our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019, our Form 8-K as filed with the SEC on April 13, 2020, and our Form 8-K as filed with the SEC on May 27, 2020, including but not limited to, those relating to our products and services, financial performance, credit rating of our insurance subsidiary and debt obligations of our billboard business.
  • In the second half of March 2020, we announced the implementation of a stock buyback plan. We have not repurchased any shares as of this date. We may in the future repurchase shares of our Class A common stock, which could reduce our cash available for working capital and other purposes.

How We Generate Our Revenues and Evaluate Our Business

We currently generate revenues primarily through billboard advertising and related services, from the sale of surety insurance and related brokerage activities and by providing high-speed broadband services. Revenue for outdoor advertising space rental is recognized on a straight-line basis over the term of the contract and advertising revenue is reported net of agency commissions. Payments received in advance of being earned are recorded as deferred revenue. In our surety insurance business, premiums written are recognized as revenues based on a pro rata daily calculation over the respective terms of the policies in-force. Unearned premiums represent the portion of premiums written applicable to the unexpired term of the policies in-force. In connection with our surety agency business, insurance commissions are recognized at a point in time, on a bond-by-bond basis as of the policy effective date and are generally nonrefundable. In our broadband business, revenue is derived principally from internet services and is recognized on a straight-line basis over the term of the contract in the period the services are rendered. Revenue received or receivable in advance of the delivery of services is included in deferred revenue.

Segment gross profit is a key metric that we use to evaluate segment operating performance and to determine resource allocation between segments. We define segment gross profit as segment revenues less segment direct cost of services. In our billboard business, direct cost of services includes land leases, utilities, repairs and maintenance of equipment, sales commissions, contract services, and other billboard level expenses. In our surety business, direct cost of services includes commissions, premium taxes, fees and assessments, and losses and loss adjustment expenses. In our broadband business, direct costs of services includes network operations and data costs, programming costs, cell site rent and utilities, and other broadband level expenses.

Results of Operations

Three Months Ended June 30, 2020 Compared to Three Months Ended June 30, 2019

The following is a comparison of our results of operations for the three months ended June 30, 2020, which we refer to as the "second quarter of fiscal 2020," compared to the three months ended June 30, 2019, which we refer to as the "second quarter of fiscal 2019." Our results for the second quarter of fiscal 2020 include the operating results of our broadband services business which was acquired during the first quarter of fiscal 2020. Therefore, comparisons of our results for the second quarter of fiscal 2020 to the second quarter of fiscal 2019 may not be meaningful.

We realized total revenues of $11,492,564 during the second quarter of fiscal 2020, an increase of 13.3% over revenues of $10,139,561 during the second quarter of fiscal 2019. The increase in total revenues was largely driven by our acquisition of FibAire in March 2020 as well as premiums earned at UCS, mainly reflecting prior quarter growth within our rental guarantee bond program. However, due to the current disruption in this market, we have suspended issuing new rental guarantee bonds, which could significantly reduce future revenues at UCS. We recognize revenues for written premium over the life of the surety bond, and, as a result, increased sales activities are not fully reflected in the quarter in which the surety bond is issued.

● Net billboard rentals in the second quarter of fiscal 2020 decreased 6.9% from the second quarter of fiscal 2019, reflecting a reduction in rental and occupancy rates across most of our markets due to COVID-19. The decline due to COVID-19 was partially offset by the acquisition of billboards from Image in the third quarter of fiscal 2019.

  • Revenue from broadband services in the second quarter of fiscal 2020 was $1,164,082, reflecting the first full quarter of operations for our broadband services business.
  • Premiums earned from our UCS insurance subsidiary in the second quarter of fiscal 2020 increased 28.8% from the second quarter of fiscal 2019. The increase in premiums earned is primarily due to prior quarter growth within our rental guarantee bond program.
  • Revenue from insurance commissions generated by our surety brokerage operations in the second quarter of fiscal 2020 decreased by 13.2% from the second quarter of fiscal 2019, primarily because our agents are able to place more surety bond business through UCS but also due to a reduction in demand as some of the markets we serve (contractors, small businesses, residential and commercial lease) were impacted by COVID-19.
  • Investment and other income at UCS increased 22.3% in the second quarter of fiscal 2020 from $99,056 in the second quarter of fiscal 2019.

During the second quarter of fiscal 2020, we had total costs and expenses of $12,357,873, as compared to total costs and expenses of $13,342,200 in the second quarter of fiscal 2019. Total costs and expenses as a percentage of total revenues decreased from 131.6% in the second quarter of fiscal 2019 to 107.5% in the second quarter of fiscal 2020. This improvement reflects our increase in total revenues, a reduction in amortization expense due to extending the amortization period from 3 years to 10 years for customer relationships within our billboard segment during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019 and our continued focus on reducing general and administrative expenses. In the second quarter of fiscal 2020, cost of billboard revenues, employee costs, professional fees, depreciation, amortization and general and administrative expenses decreased as a percentage of total revenues as compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2019.

● During the second quarter of fiscal 2020, cost of billboard revenues decreased by $23,538, from the second quarter of fiscal 2019. The decrease is mainly related to lower variable costs due to the reduction in revenue driven by COVID-19. These lower variable costs were partially offset by other more fixed costs such as ground rent expense.

● During the second quarter of fiscal 2020, cost of insurance revenues increased by $673,935, or 47.1%, from the second quarter of fiscal 2019. The increase was driven by increased loss reserves at UCS related to its rental guarantee bond program due to the uncertainty caused by COVID-19 which led to higher losses and loss adjustment expense.

  • Employee costs increased $131,382 from the second quarter of fiscal 2019. The increase is mainly driven by our broadband services business which was acquired in March 2020.

  • Professional fees in the second quarter of fiscal 2020 were $665,202, or 5.8% of total revenues, as compared to $641,535, or 6.3% of total revenues, in the second quarter of fiscal 2019. Professional fees mainly include costs associated with third-party accounting, audit, legal and acquisition related expenses.
  • Non-cashexpenses in the second quarter of fiscal 2020 included $1,029,015 in amortization expense, $934,194 in depreciation expense, and $34,740 in accretion expense related to asset retirement obligations for certain billboard assets. Amortization expense in the second quarter of fiscal 2020 decreased by 64.0% from the second quarter of fiscal 2019 as we extended the amortization period from 3 years to 10 years to better reflect the estimated economic lives of our customer relationships within our billboard segment.
  • General and administrative expenses decreased from $1,671,480 in the second quarter of fiscal 2019 to $1,393,322 in the second quarter of fiscal 2020, a decrease of 16.6%. As a percentage of total revenues, general and administrative expenses decreased from 16.5% in the second quarter of fiscal 2019 to 12.1% in the second quarter of fiscal 2020.

Net Loss from Operations. Net loss from operations for the second quarter of fiscal 2020 was $865,309, or 7.5% of total revenues, as compared to a net loss from operations of $3,202,639, or 31.6% of total revenues, in the second quarter of fiscal 2019. The decrease in net loss from operations in dollars was primarily due to increased revenue within our insurance operations, the addition of our broadband services operations, as well as a decrease in amortization expense after extending the amortization period from 3 years to 10 years for customer relationships within our billboard segment. Our net loss from operations included $1,997,949 from non-cash amortization, depreciation and accretion expenses in the second quarter of fiscal 2020, as compared to $3,750,848 in the second quarter of fiscal 2019.

Other Income (Expense). During the second quarter of fiscal 2020, we had net other income of $4,300,760. Net other income included $3,643,607 in realized gains from the sale of large publicly traded equity securities mainly held at Boston Omaha, $597,660 in equity in income of unconsolidated affiliates, $470,357 in dividend income from public equity securities held by Boston Omaha, interest income of $270,521, primarily derived from our DFH preferred units as well as from our investments in short-term treasury securities. These items were partially offset by $487,365 in unrealized losses mainly on large publicly traded equity securities held by Boston Omaha as well as UCS and interest expense of $194,020 incurred under Link's term loan which commenced in August 2019. During the second quarter of fiscal 2019, we had net other income of $1,105,849, which included $605,750 of interest income, $304,462 in realized gains on disposition of investments, $126,621 in unrealized gains on securities, and $69,016 in equity in income of unconsolidated affiliates.

Net Income (Loss) Attributable to Common Stockholders. We had net income attributable to common stockholders in the amount of $3,402,308 in the second quarter of fiscal 2020, or income per share of $0.14, based on 24,672,411 weighted average shares outstanding. This is compared to a net loss attributable to common stockholders of $2,114,348 in the second quarter of fiscal 2019, or a loss per share of $0.09, based on 22,452,540 weighted average shares outstanding.

Six Months Ended June 30, 2020 Compared to Six Months Ended June 30, 2019

The following is a comparison of our results of operations for the six months ended June 30, 2020, which we refer to as the "first half of fiscal 2020," compared to the six months ended June 30, 2019, which we refer to as the "first half of fiscal 2019." Our results for the first half of fiscal 2020 include the operating results of our broadband services business which was acquired during the first quarter of fiscal 2020. Therefore, comparisons of our results for the first half of fiscal 2020 to the first half of fiscal 2019 may not be meaningful.

We realized total revenues of $22,902,744 during the first half of fiscal 2020, an increase of 19.0% over revenues of $19,250,286 during the first half of fiscal 2019. The increase in total revenues was largely driven by our acquisition of FibAire in March 2020 as well as premiums earned at UCS, reflecting our ability to issue surety bonds in all 50 states and the District of Columbia and prior quarter growth within our rental guarantee bond program. However, due to the current disruption in this market, we have suspended issuing new rental guarantee bonds, which could significantly reduce future revenues at UCS. We recognize revenues for written premium over the life of the surety bond, and, as a result, increased sales activities are not fully reflected in the quarter in which the surety bond is issued.

● Net billboard rentals in the first half of fiscal 2020 decreased 0.4% from the first half of fiscal 2019, reflecting a reduction in rental and occupancy rates across most of our markets due to COVID-19 during the second quarter of fiscal 2020. The decline due to COVID-19 was partially offset by the acquisition of billboards from Image in the third quarter of fiscal 2019.

  • Revenue from broadband services in the first half of fiscal 2020 was $1,431,333, reflecting the acquisition of our broadband services business in March 2020.
  • Premiums earned from our UCS insurance subsidiary in the first half of fiscal 2020 increased 52.4% from the first half of fiscal 2019. The increase in premiums earned is primarily due to an increase in gross written premium now that UCS is licensed in all 50 states and the District of Columbia and prior quarter growth within our rental guarantee bond program.
  • Revenues from insurance commissions generated by our surety brokerage operations in the first half of fiscal 2020 decreased by 10.0% from the first half of fiscal 2019, primarily because our agents are able to place more surety bond business through UCS but also due to a reduction in demand as some of the markets we serve (contractors, small businesses, residential and commercial lease) were impacted by COVID-19.
  • Investment and other income at UCS increased 36.2% in the first half of fiscal 2020 from $191,902 in the first half of fiscal 2019.

During the first half of fiscal 2020, we had total costs and expenses of $24,948,025, as compared to total costs and expenses of $27,240,875 in the first half of fiscal 2019. Total costs and expenses as a percentage of total revenues decreased from 141.5% in the first half of fiscal 2019 to 108.9% in the first half of fiscal 2020. This improvement reflects our increase in total revenues, a reduction in amortization expense due to extending the amortization period from 3 years to 10 years for customer relationships within our billboard segment during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019 and our continued focus on reducing general and administrative expenses. In the first half of fiscal 2020, cost of billboard revenues, employee costs, professional fees, depreciation, amortization and general and administrative expenses decreased as a percentage of total revenues as compared to the first half of fiscal 2019.

● During the first half of fiscal 2020, cost of billboard revenues increased by $215,619, or 3.9%, when compared to the first half of fiscal 2019. The increase is mainly related to utilities and commissions paid related to the acquisition of billboards from Image in the third quarter of fiscal 2019.

● During the first half of fiscal 2020, cost of insurance revenues increased by $892,075, or 32.8%, when compared to the first half of fiscal 2019. The increase was mainly driven by increased loss reserves at UCS related to its rental guarantee bond program due to the uncertainty caused by COVID-19 which led to higher losses and loss adjustment expense as well as an increase in commissions paid due to increased revenues within UCS.

  • Employee costs in the first half of fiscal 2020 increased $386,508 from the first half of fiscal 2019. The increase is mainly driven by our broadband services business which was acquired in March 2020.

  • Professional fees in the first half of fiscal 2020 were $1,952,357, or 8.5% of total revenues, as compared to $2,060,681, or 10.7% of total revenues, in the first half of fiscal 2019. Professional fees mainly include costs associated with third-party accounting, audit, legal and acquisition related expenses.

Amortization expense decreased by 65.3% from the first half of fiscal 2019 to the first half of fiscal 2020 as we extended the amortization period from 3 years to 10 years to better reflect the estimated economic lives of our customer relationships within our billboard segment.
  • General and administrative expenses decreased from $3,488,101 in the first half of fiscal 2019 to $3,111,626 in the first half of fiscal 2020, a decrease of 10.8%. As a percentage of total revenues, general and administrative expenses decreased from 18.1% in the first half of fiscal 2019 to 13.6% in the first half of fiscal 2020.

Net Loss from Operations. Net loss from operations for the first half of fiscal 2020 was $2,045,281, or 8.9% of total revenues, as compared to a net loss from operations of $7,990,589, or 41.5% of total revenues, in the first half of fiscal 2019. The decrease in net loss from operations in dollars was primarily due to increased revenue within our insurance operations, the addition of our broadband services operations, as well as a decrease in amortization expense after extending the amortization period from 3 years to 10 years for customer relationships within our billboard segment. Our net loss from operations included $3,816,042 from non-cash amortization, depreciation and accretion expenses in the first half of fiscal 2020, as compared to $7,475,461 in the first half of fiscal 2019.

Other Income (Expense). During the first half of fiscal 2020, we had net other expense of $19,246,965. Net other expense included $25,232,878 from unrealized losses mainly on large publicly traded equity securities held by Boston Omaha as well as UCS, $3,669,875 in realized gains from the sale of large publicly traded equity securities mainly held at Boston Omaha, $1,063,325 in equity in income of unconsolidated affiliates, $861,148 in dividend income from public equity securities held by Boston Omaha, interest income of $780,000, primarily derived from our DFH preferred units as well as from our investments in short-term treasury securities, and interest expense of $388,435 incurred under Link's term loan which commenced in August 2019. During the first half of fiscal 2019, we had net other income of $1,804,321, which included $1,165,192 of interest income, $424,844 in realized gains on disposition of investments, $163,769 in equity in income of unconsolidated affiliates and $50,516 in unrealized gains on securities.

As a result of a change in GAAP effective in 2018, we are required to include the unrealized changes in market prices of investments in public equity securities in our reported earnings. As stated above, we experienced unrealized losses of $25,232,878 in the value of our securities during the first half of fiscal 2020. This contrasts with unrealized gains in fiscal 2019. For the year ended December 31, 2019, we had unrealized gains in the value of our securities of $6,273,337. While we intend to hold our current securities for the longer term, we may in the future choose to sell them for a variety of reasons resulting in realized losses or gains.

Net Loss Attributable to Common Stockholders. We had a net loss attributable to common stockholders in the amount of $21,331,930 in the first half of fiscal 2020, or a loss per share of $0.89, based on 24,091,535, weighted average shares outstanding. This is compared to a net loss attributable to common stockholders of $6,192,734 in the first half of fiscal 2019, or a loss per share of $0.28, based on 22,320,114 weighted average shares outstanding.

Comparison of the Second Quarter of Fiscal 2020 to the Second Quarter of Fiscal 2019. In the second quarter of fiscal 2020, there was a 6.9% decrease in net billboard revenues from the second quarter of fiscal 2019, reflecting a reduction in rental and occupancy rates across most of our markets due to COVID-19.The decline due to COVID-19was partially offset by the acquisition of billboards from Image in the third quarter of fiscal 2019. Segment loss from billboard operations improved mainly due to the reduction in amortization expense. In the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019, we updated our analysis of economic lives of customer relationships and extended the amortization period from 3 years to 10 years to better reflect the estimated economic lives of our billboard customers. The key factors affecting our billboard operations results during the second quarter of fiscal 2020 were as follows:

  • Ground rent expense as a percentage of total segment operating revenues increased from 21.1% in the second quarter of fiscal 2019 to 23.0% in the second quarter of fiscal 2020. The increase as a percentage of total segment operating revenues is driven by the reduction in net billboard revenues due to COVID-19.
  • Commissions paid as a percentage of total segment operating revenues increased slightly from 9.1% in the second quarter of fiscal 2019 to 9.4% in the second quarter of fiscal 2020. For additional comparison, commissions paid as a percentage of total segment operating revenues was 9.5% for all of fiscal 2019.
  • Employee costs in the second quarter of fiscal 2020 decreased 3.6% when compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2019.
  • Amortization expense in the second quarter of fiscal 2020 decreased by $1,747,119 from the second quarter of fiscal 2019. The decrease is primarily due to extending the amortization period from 3 years to 10 years for customer relationships.
  • General and administrative expenses in the second quarter of fiscal 2020 decreased 20.5% when compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2019. The decrease was primarily driven by a reduction in travel related expenses as well as other cost savings initiatives due to COVID-19.
  • Interest expense of $192,866 in the second quarter of fiscal 2020 compared to interest income $68,980 in the second quarter of fiscal 2019. The increase in interest expense is related to Link's $18 million term loan which commenced in August 2019.

Comparison of the Second Quarter of Fiscal 2020 to the Second Quarter of Fiscal 2019. In the second quarter of fiscal 2020, total operating revenues increased by 22.9% as compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2019, primarily due to a 28.8% increase in premiums earned at UCS. Segment loss from insurance operations improved mainly due to operating expenses decreasing as a percentage of revenue when compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2019. The key factors affecting our insurance operations results during the second quarter of fiscal 2020 were as follows:

  • Increased premiums earned from our UCS insurance subsidiary, reflecting prior quarter growth within our rental guarantee bond program. However, due to the current disruption in this market, we have suspended issuing new rental guarantee bonds, which could significantly reduce future revenues at UCS.
  • Our brokerage operations realized a 13.2% decrease in insurance commissions from other insurance carriers in the second quarter of fiscal 2020 when compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2019. The decrease is mainly due to our agents being able to place more surety bond business through UCS but also due to a reduction in overall demand during the second quarter of fiscal 2020 as some of the markets we serve (contractors, small businesses, residential and commercial lease) were impacted by COVID-19.
  • Commissions paid in the second quarter of fiscal 2020 increased by $79,922 from the second quarter of fiscal 2019 primarily due to increased revenues within UCS. However, commissions paid decreased as a percentage of total segment operating revenue from 30.6% in the second quarter of fiscal 2019 to 27.1% in the second quarter of fiscal 2020.
  • Our losses and loss adjustment expense as a percentage of insurance revenues increased from 13.3% in the second quarter of fiscal 2019 to 28.0% in the second quarter of fiscal 2020. During the second quarter of fiscal 2020, UCS increased its loss reserves related to its rental guarantee bond program due to the uncertainty caused by COVID-19.
  • Employee costs and general and administrative expenses decreased as a percentage of revenue to 26.5% and 12.2%, respectively, during the second quarter of fiscal 2020. This is compared to 43.1% and 21.5%, respectively, during the second quarter of fiscal 2019.
  • During the second quarter of fiscal 2020, our segment loss from insurance operations of $184,734 was offset by unrealized gains of $1,045,895 from our investments in publicly held securities. We expect to continue to invest a portion of our excess capital in accordance with insurance regulatory limitations in both large-cap publicly traded equity securities and bonds. These investments are subject to the risk of loss in value depending upon market conditions and factors outside of our control.

Comparison of the First Half of Fiscal 2020 to the First Half of Fiscal 2019. In the first half of fiscal 2020, net billboard revenues decreased by 0.4% from the first half of fiscal 2019, reflecting a reduction in rental and occupancy rates across most of our markets due to COVID-19 during the second quarter of fiscal 2020. The decline due to COVID-19 was partially offset by the acquisition of billboards from Image in the third quarter of fiscal 2019. Segment loss from billboard operations improved mainly due to the reduction in amortization expense. In the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019, we updated our analysis of economic lives of customer relationships and extended the amortization period from 3 years to 10 years to better reflect the estimated economic lives of our billboard customers. The key factors affecting our billboard operations results during the first half of fiscal 2020 were as follows:

  • Ground rent as a percentage of total segment operating revenues increased slightly from 22.3% in the first half of fiscal 2019 to 22.4% in the first half of fiscal 2020. The increase as a percentage of total segment operating revenues is driven by the reduction in net billboard revenues due to COVID-19.
  • Commissions paid as a percentage of total segment operating revenues increased from 8.9% in the first half of fiscal 2019 to 9.6% in the first half of fiscal 2020. For additional comparison, commissions paid as a percentage of total segment operating revenues was 9.5% for all of fiscal 2019.
  • Employee costs in the first half of fiscal 2020 increased 2.5% when compared to the first half of fiscal 2019.
  • Amortization expense in the first half of fiscal 2020 decreased by $3,468,908 from the first half of fiscal 2019. The decrease is primarily due to extending the amortization period from 3 years to 10 years for customer relationships.
  • General and administrative expenses in the first half of fiscal 2020 decreased 14.4% when compared to the first half of fiscal 2019. The decrease was primarily driven by a reduction in travel related expenses as well as other cost savings initiatives due to COVID-19.
  • Interest expense of $385,656 in the first half of fiscal 2020 compared to interest income $71,087 the first half of fiscal 2019. The increase in interest expense is related to Link's $18 million term loan which commenced in August 2019.

Comparison of the First Half of Fiscal 2020 to the First Half of Fiscal 2019. In the first half of fiscal 2020, total operating revenues increased by 42.9% as compared to the first half of fiscal 2019, primarily due to a 52.4% increase in premiums earned at UCS. At the same time, operating expenses decreased as a percentage of revenue when compared to the first half of fiscal 2019, resulting in positive segment income from insurance operations in the first half of fiscal 2020. The key factors affecting our insurance operations results during the first half of fiscal 2020 were as follows:

  • Increased premiums earned from our UCS insurance subsidiary, reflecting an increase in gross written premium now that UCS is licensed in all 50 states and the District of Columbia and prior quarter growth within our rental guarantee bond program. However, due to the current disruption in this market, we have suspended issuing new rental guarantee bonds, which could significantly reduce future revenues at UCS.
  • Our brokerage operations realized a 10.0% decrease in insurance commissions from other insurance carriers in the first half of fiscal 2020 when compared to the first half of fiscal 2019. The decrease is mainly due to our agents being able to place more surety bond business through UCS but also due to a reduction in overall demand during the second quarter of fiscal 2020 as some of the markets we serve (contractors, small businesses, residential and commercial lease) were impacted by COVID-19.
  • Commissions paid in the first half of fiscal 2020 increased by $324,785 from the first half of fiscal 2019 primarily due to increased revenues within UCS. However, commissions paid as a percentage of total segment operating revenue decreased from 32.2% in the first half of fiscal 2019 to 26.8% in the first half of fiscal 2020.
  • Our losses and loss adjustment expense as a percentage of insurance revenues increased from 14.7% in the first half of fiscal 2019 to 18.8% in the first half of fiscal 2020. During the second quarter of fiscal 2020, UCS increased its loss reserves related to its rental guarantee bond program due to the uncertainty caused by COVID-19.
  • Employee costs and general and administrative expenses as a percentage of revenue decreased to 29.1% and 13.4%, respectively, during the first half of fiscal 2020. This is compared to 48.8% and 24.7%, respectively, during the first half of fiscal 2019.
  • During the first half of fiscal 2020, our segment income from insurance operations of $115,652 was reduced by unrealized losses of $4,218,512 from our investments in publicly held securities. We expect to continue to invest a portion of our excess capital in accordance with insurance regulatory limitations in both large-cap publicly traded equity securities and bonds. These investments are subject to the risk of loss in value depending upon market conditions and factors outside of our control.

Net Cash Provided by Operating Activities. Net cash provided by operating activities was $1,261,366 for the first half of fiscal 2020 compared to a cash inflow of $2,895,881 for the first half of fiscal 2019. The net cash provided by operating activities for the first half of fiscal 2020 was primarily attributable to improved operating results within our insurance business, the addition of our broadband services business, and interest income and dividend income earned at Boston Omaha, and was offset by a decrease in unearned premiums at UCS and an increase in interest expense incurred under Link's term loan which commenced in August 2019.

Net Cash Used in Investing Activities. Net cash used in investing activities was $32,978,870 for the first half of fiscal 2020 as compared with net cash used in investing activities of $22,833,595 for the first half of fiscal 2019. The net cash used in investing activities for the first half of fiscal 2020 is primarily attributable to our investments in U.S. Treasury securities available for sale, the purchase of the remaining thirty percent interest in SCS for $1,406,409, the purchase of certain billboard assets and easements in Nevada for $1,995,832, commencing our broadband services business with the acquisition of substantially all of the assets of FibAire for a total purchase price of $13,712,491, and investing $1,500,000 in 24th Street Fund I, LLC. These investments were partially offset by DFH's $6,000,000 redemption of a portion of the preferred units in January 2020 as well as $3,669,875 in realized gains from the sale of large publicly traded equity securities mainly held at Boston Omaha.

Net Cash Provided by Financing Activities. Net cash provided by financing activities was $56,285,794 during the first half of fiscal 2020 as compared to net cash provided by financing activities of $14,156,342 during the first half of fiscal 2019. During the first half of fiscal 2020, net cash provided by financing activities mainly consisted of $58,880,000 in gross proceeds raised through our public offering of Class A common stock on June 2, 2020 and gross proceeds of $669,751 raised through our "at the market" offering during April 2020, offset by offering costs of $3,417,323.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Currently, we own billboards in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, Virginia, West Virginia and Wisconsin, surety insurance brokerage firms we acquired in 2016 and 2017, a surety insurance company we acquired in December 2016, a broadband service provider whose assets we acquired in March 2020 and minority investments in several real estate management entities, a builder of residential homes, and a bank holding entity whose primary source of revenue is in subprime automobile lending. At June 30, 2020, we had approximately $40.4 million in unrestricted cash. Our strategy is to continue to acquire other billboard locations and insurance businesses as well as acquire other businesses which we believe have the potential to generate positive cash flows and when made at what we believe to be attractive prices relative to other opportunities generally available to us. We currently expect to finance any future acquisitions and investments with cash, debt and seller or third-party financing. Similar to our previous issuance in connection with the acquisitions of Tammy Lynn and Image, in the future, we may satisfy all or a portion of the purchase price for an acquisition with our equity securities. In addition, we have made investments in several companies and expect to continue to make investments in the securities of both publicly traded and privately held companies.

There can be no assurance that we will consummate any subsequent acquisitions. Furthermore, our acquisitions are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties, including as to when, whether and to what extent the anticipated benefits and cost savings of a particular acquisition will be realized. Our failure to successfully identify and complete future acquisitions of assets or businesses could reduce future potential earnings, available cash and slow our anticipated growth.

In February 2018, we announced the entry into a stock purchase agreement relating to the issuance and sale of up to $150,000,000 of our unregistered Class A common stock, which we refer to as the "2018 private placement." 3,300,000 shares were issued in the initial closing, which occurred on March 6, 2018, resulting in gross proceeds to us of $76,890,000. The remaining 3,137,768 shares were issued during the third quarter of fiscal 2018 in a subsequent closing on May 15, 2018, resulting in gross proceeds to us of approximately $73,110,000. Under the 2018 private placement, all shares were sold at $23.30, a slight premium to the $23.29 closing price of the Class A common stock on the NASDAQ Capital Market, as reported by NASDAQ on the date of the Class A Common Stock Purchase Agreement.

Since March 2018, we have utilized our "at the market" offering that is part of our shelf Registration Statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-222853) that was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, which we refer to as the "SEC," and declared effective in February 2018, which authorizes us to sell up to $200,000,000 through the sales of securities to the public. The original "at the market" offering was pursuant to a Sales Agreement entered into on March 2, 2018 with Cowen and Company, LLC, which we refer to as "Cowen," and related to the sale of shares of our Class A common stock. In accordance with the terms of that Sales Agreement, we had the option to sell from time to time up to $50,000,000 of shares of our Class A common stock through Cowen acting as our agent. Cowen was not required to sell any specific amount of securities, but acted as our sales agent using commercially reasonable efforts consistent with its normal trading and sales practices on mutually agreed terms between Cowen and us. The compensation to Cowen for sales of Class A common stock sold pursuant to the Sales Agreement was an amount equal to 3% of the gross proceeds of any shares of Class A common stock sold under the Sales Agreement. From March 2018 through August 20, 2019, we sold through Cowen an aggregate of 2,141,452 shares of our Class A common stock under this "at the market" offering, resulting in gross proceeds to us of $49,999,625. We subsequently entered into a new Sales Agreement with Cowen which allows us to sell up to an additional $75,000,000 of our Class A common stock under the same compensation arrangement to Cowen. This new "at the market" offering provides us with the flexibility to seek to raise additional capital in amounts we deem appropriate and at price levels approved by us, with lower costs than a traditional underwritten public offering. We have no specific plans for the use of any proceeds from this new "at the market" offering of our Class A common stock. During fiscal 2019, we sold 448,880 shares of our Class A common stock under this new "at the market" offering for gross proceeds of $9,450,789. During the second quarter of fiscal 2020, we have sold under the new "at the market" offering 40,455 shares of our Class A common stock for gross proceeds of $669,751.

On May 28, 2020, we entered into an underwriting agreement, which we refer to as the "underwriting agreement," with Wells Fargo Securities, LLC and Cowen and Company, LLC, as joint lead book-running managers for a public offering of 3,200,000 shares, which we refer to as the "firm shares," of our Class A common stock at a public offering price of $16.00 per share. Under the terms of the underwriting agreement, we granted the underwriters an option, exercisable for 30 days, to purchase up to an additional 480,000 shares of Class A common stock at the public offering price less underwriting discounts and commissions, which we refer to as the "option shares." Adam Peterson and Alex Rozek, our Co-Chairmen, together with another member of our board of directors and another employee, purchased, directly or through their affiliates, an aggregate of 39,375 shares of Class A common stock in the offering at the public offering price. On June 2, 2020, we announced the completion of the public offering for a total of 3,680,000 shares, including both the firm shares and all of the option shares issued as a result of the underwriters' exercise in full of their over-allotment option, resulting in total gross proceeds to us of approximately $58.9 million. We raised this capital to fund the planned expansion of our recently acquired fiber-to-the-home broadband, telecommunication business, to seek to grow our Link billboard business through the acquisitions of additional billboard businesses, and for general corporate purposes. We do not have current agreements, commitments or understandings for any specific material acquisitions at this time. The shares were sold in the offering pursuant to the Company's shelf registration statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-222853) that was declared effective on February 9, 2018, as supplemented by a prospectus supplement dated May 28, 2020.

On August 12, 2019, Link, our wholly owned subsidiary which owns and operates our billboard businesses, entered into a Credit Agreement, which we refer to as the "Credit Agreement," with First National Bank of Omaha, which we refer to as the "Lender," under which Link may borrow up to $40,000,000, which we refer to as the "Credit Facility." The Credit Agreement provides for an initial term loan, which we refer to as "Term Loan 1," an incremental term loan, which we refer to as "Term Loan 2," and a revolving line of credit. These loans are secured by all assets of Link and its operating subsidiaries, including a pledge of equity interests of each of Link's subsidiaries. In addition, each of Link's subsidiaries has joined as a guarantor to the obligations under the Credit Agreement. These loans are not guaranteed by Boston Omaha Corporation or any of our non-billboard businesses. Link has borrowed $18,060,000 through Term Loan 1 under the Credit Facility. Term Loan 1 has a fixed interest rate of 4.25% per annum with interest only payments due through July 1, 2020. Term Loan 2 has a loan availability in an amount not to exceed $5,500,000 and must be drawn before September 1, 2020. If utilized, Term Loan 2 will have a fixed rate of interest determined using the seven-year Treasury rate plus 195 basis points but in any event an interest rate no less than 4.20% per annum. Principal amounts under each of Term Loan 1 and Term Loan 2 are payable in monthly installments according to a 15-year amortization schedule. For Term Loan 1, these payments are due commencing on July 1, 2020. For Term Loan 2, these principal payments are due commencing on the last day of the month following the closing of Term Loan 2. Both term loans are payable in full on August 12, 2026. During the first three years of the term loans, Link may prepay up to 10% of the loan principal in each year without paying any prepayment penalty. Otherwise, there is a prepayment penalty ranging between 2.0% and 0.5%. After three years, there is no prepayment penalty. In addition to the term loans, the Credit Agreement allows Link to borrow up to $5,000,000 through August 12, 2021 under a revolving line of credit. Interest payments on the revolving line of credit are based on the 30 day LIBOR rate plus an applicable margin ranging between 2.00% and 2.50% dependent on Link's consolidated leverage ratio.

The Credit Agreement includes representations and warranties, reporting covenants, affirmative covenants, negative covenants, financial covenants and events of default customary for financings of this type. Upon the occurrence of an event of default the Lender may accelerate the loans. Upon the occurrence of certain insolvency and bankruptcy events of default the loans will automatically accelerate. The foregoing summary of the Credit Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby does not purport to be a complete description and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the terms and conditions of the Credit Agreement and Security Agreement, copies of which are attached as Exhibit 10.1 and Exhibit 10.2, respectively to our Form 8-K as filed with the SEC on August 13, 2019 and a First Amendment to Credit Agreement, a copy of which is attached as Exhibit 10.1 to our Form 8-K as filed with the SEC on October 29, 2019, and a Second Amendment to Credit Agreement, a copy of which is attached as Exhibit 10.1 to our Form 8-K as filed with the SEC on June 30, 2020.

We believe that our existing cash and short-term investments, generated by the proceeds from the 2018 private placement, the proceeds from the "at the market" offering to date, additional funds that we may receive in the current "at the market" offering, funds received and in the future available through the credit agreement Link entered into on August 12, 2019, and any funds that we may receive from cash flows from operations will be sufficient to meet working capital requirements, and anticipated capital expenditures for the next 12 months. We have also taken steps to suspend the future issuance of certain rental surety bonds issued by UCS and have taken other steps to reduce certain costs of our operations. At June 30, 2020, we had approximately $40.4 million available in unrestricted cash, $78.7 million in U.S. Treasury securities and $50.5 million in marketable equity securities.

If future additional significant acquisition opportunities become available in excess of our currently available cash and U.S. Treasury securities, we may need to seek additional capital through long term debt borrowings, the sale of our securities, and/or other financing options and we may not be able to obtain such debt or equity financing on terms favorable to us or at all.

On March 18, 2020, we announced the authorization of a share repurchase program which allows us to repurchase our Class A common stock. We have not yet repurchased any shares under this program and we cannot predict when or if we will repurchase any shares of Class A common stock as any such share repurchases will depend on a number of factors, including constraints specified in any Rule 10b5-1 trading plans, price, general business and market conditions, and alternative investment opportunities.

In the future, we may use a number of different sources to finance our acquisitions and operations, including current cash on hand, potential future cash flows from operations, seller financing, debt financings including but not limited to long-term debt and line of credit facilities, including additional credit facilities which may or may not be secured by our assets or those of our operating subsidiaries, additional common or preferred equity issuances or any combination of these sources, to the extent available to us, or other sources that may become available from time to time, which could include asset sales and issuance of debt securities. In addition to our current credit facility, any other future debt that we incur may be recourse or non-recourse and may be secured or unsecured. Link's existing credit facility imposes restrictions on Link that could increase our vulnerability to general adverse economic and industry conditions by limiting our flexibility in planning for and reacting to changes in our billboard and insurance industries. Specifically, these restrictions place limits on Link and its subsidiaries' ability to, among other things, incur additional indebtedness, make additional acquisitions and investments, pay dividends, repurchase stock, create liens, enter into transactions with affiliates, merge or consolidate or transfer or sell our billboard assets. Our credit facility requires us to meet a fixed charge coverage ratio and other financial covenants. Our ability to comply with these loan covenants may be affected by factors beyond our control and a breach of any loan covenants would likely result in an event of default under the credit facility, which would permit the lender to declare all amounts incurred thereunder to be immediately due and payable and to terminate their commitment to make future extensions of credit. We also may take advantage of joint venture or other partnering opportunities as such opportunities arise in order to acquire properties that would otherwise be unavailable to us. Any future credit facilities which we or any of our subsidiaries may enter into would likely impose similar restrictions and risks. We may use the proceeds of any future borrowings to acquire assets or for general corporate purposes. In determining when to use leverage, we will assess the appropriateness of new equity or debt capital based on market conditions, including assumptions regarding future cash flow, the creditworthiness of customers and future rental rates.

Our certificate of incorporation and bylaws do not limit the amount of debt that we may incur. Our Board of Directors has not adopted a policy limiting the total amount of debt that we may incur. Our Board of Directors will consider a number of factors in evaluating the amount of debt that we may incur. If we adopt a debt policy, our Board of Directors may from time to time modify such policy in light of then-current economic conditions, relative costs of debt and equity capital, market values of our properties, general conditions in the markets for debt and equity securities, fluctuations in the market price of our Class A common stock if then trading on any exchange, growth and acquisition opportunities and other factors. Our decision to use leverage in the future to finance our assets will be at our discretion and will not be subject to the approval of our stockholders, and we are not restricted by our governing documents or otherwise in the amount of leverage that we may use.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

Except for our normal operating leases, we do not have any off-balance sheet financing arrangements, transactions or special purpose entities.

Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk

At June 30, 2020, we held no significant derivative instruments that materially increased our exposure to market risks for interest rates, foreign currency rates, commodity prices or other market price risks. Our operations are currently conducted entirely within the U.S.; therefore, we had no significant exposure to foreign currency exchange rate risk.

Critical Accounting

The preparation of the consolidated financial statements and related notes to the consolidated financial statements requires us to make estimates that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenue and expenses, and related disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities. We base these estimates on historical results and various other assumptions, including the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, believed to be reasonable, all of which form the basis for making estimates concerning the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily available from other sources. Actual results may differ from these estimates. Information with respect to our critical accounting policies that we believe could have the most significant effect on our reported results or require subjective or complex judgments by management is contained in Item 7, Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations, and in the Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements each in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2019, as filed with the SEC on March 13, 2020. We believe that at June 30, 2020, there has been no material change to this information.

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk.

Not applicable as we are a "smaller reporting company."

Item 4. Controls and Procedures.

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

Our management, with the participation of our principal executive officers and principal financial and accounting officer, conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures (as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act) as of the end of the period covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. Based on this evaluation, our principal executive officers and principal financial and accounting officer each concluded that, as of June 30, 2020, our disclosure controls and procedures are effective and designed to ensure that the information required to be disclosed in our reports filed or submitted under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the requisite time periods.

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

There have not been any changes in our internal control over financial reporting, as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Exchange Act, during the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2020 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

Limitations on Effectiveness of Controls and Procedures

Our management, including our principal executive officers and principal financial and accounting officer, does not expect that our disclosure controls and procedures or our internal controls will prevent all error and all fraud. A control system, no matter how well conceived and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the control system are met. Further, the design of a control system must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints and the benefits of controls must be considered relative to their costs. Because of the inherent limitations in all control systems, no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, within our company have been detected. These inherent limitations include, but are not limited to, the realities that judgments in decision-making can be faulty and that breakdowns can occur because of simple error or mistake. Additionally, controls can be circumvented by the individual acts of some persons, by collusion of two or more people, or by management override of the control. The design of any system of controls also is based in part upon certain assumptions about the likelihood of future events and there can be no assurance that any design will succeed in achieving its stated goals under all potential future conditions; over time, control may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.

PART II. OTHER INFORMATION

Item 1. Legal Proceedings.

Due to the nature of our business, we are, from time to time and in the ordinary course of business, involved in routine litigation or subject to disputes or claims related to our business activities, including, without limitation, workers' compensation claims and employment-related disputes. In the opinion of our management, none of the pending litigation, disputes or claims against us, if decided adversely, will have a material adverse effect individually or in the aggregate on our financial condition, cash flows or results of operations.

Item 1A. Risk Factors

Not applicable as we are a "smaller reporting company." For a list of risk factors, please refer to our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019, as filed with the SEC on March 13, 2020, our Form 8-K as filed with the SEC on April 13, 2020 and our Form 8-K as filed with the SEC on May 27, 2020.

.

Item 2. Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities and Use of Proceeds.

On March 18, 2020, we announced the authorization of a share repurchase program which allows us to repurchase up to $20 million of our Class A common stock. We have not yet repurchased any shares under this program and we cannot predict when or if we will repurchase any shares of Class A common stock as the determination whether to effect any share repurchases will depend on a number of factors, including constraints specified in any Rule 10b5-1 trading plans, price, general business and market conditions, and alternative investment opportunities.

Item 3. Defaults upon Senior Securities.

None.

Item 4. Mine Safety Disclosures.

Not applicable.

Item 5. Other Information.
