On November 12, 2021, the Company and Fortress entered into an arrangement to share the cost of certain legal, finance, regulatory, and research and development employees (the “Shared Services Agreement”). Fortress’ Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer is the Executive Chairman of the Company. Under the terms of the Shared Services Agreement, the Company will reimburse Fortress for the salary and benefit costs associated with these employees based upon actual hours worked on Journey related projects following the completion of the IPO. In addition, the Company reimburses Fortress for various payroll related costs and selling, general and administrative costs. For the three-month periods ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, Fortress employees have provided services to the Company, and the Company recorded related expense of approximately $0.1 million and zero, respectively. At March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the Company’s outstanding balance under the Shared Services Agreement was $0.5 million and $0.6 million, respectively, recorded as accounts payable and accrued expenses - related party on the condensed consolidated balance sheets.
Fortress Income Tax
At March 31, 2022, 58% of the Company’s outstanding Common Stock was owned by Fortress. Prior to the IPO, the Company had been filing consolidated federal tax returns and consolidated or combined state tax returns in multiple jurisdictions with Fortress. The Company may still be required to file combined tax returns in certain “combined filing states”. These jurisdictions generally require corporations engaged in unitary business and meet the capital stock requirement of fifty percent to file a combined state tax return.
