Leases [Abstract]  
On August 31, 2016, Synalloy and its operating subsidiaries ("the Synalloy Companies") entered into a Purchase and Sale Agreement ("PSA") with Store Capital Acquisitions, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company and an affiliate of Store Capital Corporation (“Store Capital Acquisitions”). Store Capital Acquisitions assigned its rights under the PSA to Store Master Funding XII, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company ("Store Funding"), prior to closing.
On September 30, 2016, pursuant to the terms and conditions of the PSA, the Synalloy Companies completed the sale of their real estate properties in Tennessee, South Carolina, Texas and Ohio to Store Funding for a purchase price of $22,000,000. The net book value of the real estate properties sold totaled $17,770,000 and the Company recognized a loss on the sale at September 30, 2016 of $2,455,000. The Company also recognized a deferred gain of $6,685,000 amortized on the straight-line method over the initial lease term of 20 years. The deferred gain recognized during the fourth quarter of 2016 totaled $82,000 and reduced the net loss recognized at December 31, 2016 in the accompanying consolidated statements of operations to $2,372,000. Concurrent with the sale of its real properties, the Company leased back all real properties sold to Store Funding. The closing of the sale-leaseback transaction provided Synalloy with net proceeds (after transaction-related costs) of approximately $21,925,000. The net proceeds were used to pay down debt under the Company's credit agreement, as described in Note 5.
The initial non-cancelable term of the lease is 20 years, with two renewal options of ten years each. First year rent expense will be $1,892,000. The lease includes a rent escalator equal to the lesser of 1.25 times the percentage increase in the Consumer Price Index since the previous increase or two percent. The lease met the operating lease requirements and has been accounted for as such. For each location, Synalloy simultaneously entered into a sublease with each operating subsidiary.
The Company leases office space in Spartanburg, South Carolina and Richmond, Virginia, property for a storage yard in Mineral Ridge, Ohio and various manufacturing and office equipment at each of its locations, all under operating leases.
The amount of future minimum lease payments under operating leases are as follows: 2017 - $2,253,000; 2018 - $2,309,000; 2019 - $2,309,000; 2020 - $2,310,000; 2020 - $2,275,000; and thereafter - $35,754,000. Rent expense related to operating leases was $1,144,000, $686,000 and $903,000 in 2016, 2015 and 2014, respectively.
The Company leases machinery and equipment for its manufacturing facility in Cleveland, Tennessee under a capital lease. Future minimum commitments for capital leases are as follows:
