(16) Commitments and Contingencies
Commitments represent obligations, such as those for future purchases of goods or services that are not yet recorded on the balance sheet as liabilities. We record liabilities for commitments when incurred (specifically, when the goods or services are received). As of June 30, 2020, we had total contractual obligations of $233.4 million, of which $149.7 million related to our operating lease commitments, $50.0 million of long-term debt and $32.9 million of purchase obligations. With the exception of the $50.0 million repayment of our long-term debt in September 2020 and lease payments totaling $16.7 million made to our landlords partially offset by $12.1 million in operating lease assets obtained in exchange for operating lease liabilities and $6.3 million in dividends payable as of December 31, 2020, there were no other material changes in our contractual obligations during the first six months of fiscal 2021.
We are routinely party to various legal proceedings, claims, lawsuits and regulatory examinations that have arisen in the ordinary course of our business, including employment matters, commercial and intellectual property disputes and environmental items. The outcome of litigation and other legal matters is always uncertain. We believe that the Company has valid defenses to the legal matters currently pending against it, is defending itself vigorously and has recorded accruals determined in accordance with GAAP, where appropriate. On a quarterly basis, we review our litigation activities and determine if an unfavorable outcome to us is considered “remote”, “reasonably possible” or “probable” as defined by ASC 450, Contingencies. Where we determine an unfavorable outcome is probable and is reasonably estimable, we accrue for potential litigation losses. The liability we may ultimately incur with respect to such litigation matters, in the event of a negative outcome, may be in excess of amounts currently accrued, if any; however, we do not expect that the reasonably possible outcome of these litigation matters would, individually or in the aggregate, have a material adverse effect on our financial condition, results of operations or cash flows. Where we determine an unfavorable outcome is not probable or reasonably estimable, we do not accrue for any potential litigation loss. Although it is possible that resolution of one or more of the legal matters currently pending or threatened could result in losses material to us, management believes that, based on information available at December 31, 2020, the likelihood is remote that any current pending claims or proceedings, individually or in the aggregate, will have a material adverse effect on our financial position, results of operations or cash flows.
Environmental items typically involve investigations and proceedings concerning air emissions, hazardous waste discharges, and/or management of solid and hazardous wastes. Under applicable environmental laws and regulations, we and/or our subsidiaries are, or may be, required to remove or mitigate the effects on the environment due to the disposal or release of certain hazardous materials. Based on the present facts, we believe that our facilities are in material compliance with all such applicable laws and regulations and there will be no material adverse effect on our financial position or future results of operations.
