|Variable Interest Entity||
The financial position and results of operations of AAP are consolidated in our financial statements based on our conclusion that AAP is a variable interest entity due to our contribution in excess of 50% of the total equity, subordinated debt and other forms of financial support. We have a controlling financial interest in AAP through our contractual agreement with GE, which is material to AAP, and we have provided substantial financial support to fund the operations of AAP since its inception. The financial position and results of operations for AAP are reported in our recycling segment.
The following table summarizes the assets and liabilities of AAP as of July 2, 2016, and January 2, 2016:
(a) As of July 2, 2016, AAP has $311 in advances payable to 4301 included in accounts payable.
(b) Other liabilities represent loans and advances between ARCA and AAP that are eliminated in consolidation.
In April 2016, an officer of the Company loaned $75 to AAP through the issuance of an 8% promissory note. The note is expected to be repaid with the collection of carbon offset program revenues in August 2016.
The following table summarizes the operating results of AAP for the three months and six months ended July 2, 2016, and July 4, 2015:
The entire disclosure for a variable interest entity (VIE), including but not limited to, judgments and assumptions in determining whether to consolidate and in identifying the primary beneficiary, gain (loss) recognized on the initial consolidation of the VIE, terms of arrangements, amounts and classification of the VIE's assets and liabilities, and the entity's maximum exposure to loss.
