Stockholders' Equity Note [Abstract]  
On June 5, 2019, the Company closed agreements for the sale of 1,250,000 units consisting of one share of Series B Preferred Stock (the “Preferred Stock”), with a stated value of $20.00 per share (the “Stated Value”) and a common stock purchase warrant to purchase 7.41 shares of the Company's common stock (the “Warrants”) for an aggregate purchase price of $25.0 million. The Preferred Stock was not convertible and did not hold voting rights.
On September 28, 2020, the Company redeemed its Series B Preferred Stock in full for cash. Dividends on all shares of Series B Preferred Stock were paid in full as of the redemption date and have ceased to accumulate.
The Preferred Stock ranked senior to the Company’s common stock with respect to dividend rights and rights upon liquidation, winding-up or dissolution. The Preferred Stock was entitled to annual dividends at a rate equal to 8.0% per annum on the Stated Value. The Warrants had exercise price of $1.62 per share and expired seven years from the date of issuance. Accrued dividends were payable quarterly in shares of common stock of the Company based on a fixed share price of $1.62. During the three months ended March 31, 2020, the Company issued 0.3 million shares of common stock to the holders of the Preferred Stock.
As the Preferred Stock was mandatorily redeemable, it was classified as a liability on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. All dividends payable on the Preferred Stock were classified as Interest Expense.
The Preferred Stock and Warrants were considered freestanding financial instruments and were accounted for separately. The Warrants were considered equity instruments and not marked-to-market at each reporting period. On the date of issuance, the value of the Warrants was $6.7 million, which was determined using the Black-Scholes valuation model. The fair value of the Warrants was recorded as an increase to Additional Paid-In Capital and a discount of the Preferred Stock. The discount was amortized to Interest Expense using the effective interest method. Amortization of the discount for the three months ended March 31, 2020 was approximately $0.4 million.
