Item 1.02 Termination of a Material Definitive Agreement

On October 10, 2019, we terminated the Purchase and Sale Agreement previously disclosed on our Current Report on Form 8-K filed December 17, 2018, pursuant to which we agreed to purchase a leasehold interest to a parcel of land located in Maricopa County, Arizona, on which we intended to construct Axon's new headquarters. We terminated the agreement because we were unable to secure design approval by the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community. We expect to forfeit our escrow deposit of approximately $0.2 million, and no further amounts are owed to the counterparty under the agreement. We previously anticipated paying a total of $24.0 million for the Purchase and Sale Agreement and related prepaid rent.

In connection with the termination of the Purchase and Sale Agreement, we expect to record an impairment charge in the range of $0.6 million to $0.8 million, excluding the aforementioned forfeited deposit, related to the abandonment of certain planning and site development activities, which will be reflected in our Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2019.
