|Commitments and Contingencies||17. Commitments and Contingencies
From time to time, we may become involved in various claims and legal proceedings arising in the ordinary course of business, which, by their nature, are inherently unpredictable. We are not currently a party to any material claims or legal proceedings the outcome of which, if determined adversely to us, would individually or in the aggregate, have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition or results of operations. Regardless of outcome, litigation and other legal proceedings can have an adverse impact on us because of defense and settlement costs, diversion of management resources and other factors.
The Company analyzed its unique facts and circumstances related to potential obligations in a certain state jurisdiction, including the delivery nature of its prior year intercompany services, payroll and other benefits-related services, current shared services between the parent and subsidiaries, and changing state laws and interpretations of those laws, and has determined that the Company may have an indirect tax obligation.
The Company has continued correspondence with the applicable authorities in an effort toward identifying a taxpayer-favorable resolution of the potential liabilities. As a result of this correspondence, the Company has updated its liability including interest and penalties based on its best estimate as of September 30, 2022.
The following table summarizes the estimated indirect tax liability activity during the nine months ended September 30, 2022:
The Company continues to analyze the additional obligations it may have, if any, and it will adjust the liability accordingly.
The Company has commitments for multi-launch and integration services with launch services providers. As of September 30, 2022, the Company had a commitment for one launch, to include up to 2 satellites at future estimated launch dates for $1.7 million. The terms of the arrangement also allow the Company to remanifest the satellites if significant delays in excess of 365 days or other inexcusable delays occur with the provider. Subsequent to remanifest efforts four months after the 365 days, the Company can request a refund of all recoverable costs. Payment terms are 15 days from invoice date.
The company entered into a commitment during the nine months ended September 30, 2022 to provide a minimum guarantee of $3.0 million to a vendor as part of a reseller agreement in exchange for a license to promote and distribute products and services. We did not enter into any other material commitments during the nine months ended September 30, 2022.
