NOTE 10—FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS
The Company follows the guidance in ASC 820 for its financial assets and liabilities that are
re-measuredand reported at fair value at each reporting period, and
non-financialassets and liabilities that are
re-measuredand reported at fair value at least annually.
The fair value of the Company’s financial assets and liabilities reflects management’s estimate of amounts that the Company would have received in connection with the sale of the assets or paid in connection with the transfer of the liabilities in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. In connection with measuring the fair value of its assets and liabilities, the Company seeks to maximize the use of observable inputs (market data obtained from independent sources) and to minimize the use of unobservable inputs (internal assumptions about how market participants would price assets and liabilities). The following fair value hierarchy is used to classify assets and liabilities based on the observable inputs and unobservable inputs used in order to value the assets and liabilities:
The following table presents information about the Company’s assets that are measured at fair value on a recurring basis at March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020, and indicates the fair value hierarchy of the valuation inputs the Company utilized to determine such fair value:
The Warrants were accounted for as liabilities in accordance with
ASC 815-40 andare presented within warrant liabilities on our balance sheet. The warrant liabilities are measured at fair value at inception and on a recurring basis, with changes in fair value presented within change in fair value of warrant liabilities in the consolidated statement of operations.
The Private Placement and Public Warrants were initially valued using a Binomial Lattice Model, which is considered to be a Level 3 fair value measurement. The Binomial Lattice Model’s primary unobservable input utilized in determining the fair value of the Public and Private Placement Warrants is the expected volatility of the common stock. The expected volatility as of the IPO date was derived from observable public warrant pricing on comparable ‘blank-check’ companies without an identified target. The expected volatility as of subsequent valuation dates was implied from the Company’s own public warrant pricing. A Binomial Lattice Model was used in estimating the fair value of the Public Warrants for periods where no observable traded price were available, using the same expected volatility as was used in measuring the fair value of the Private Placement Warrants. For periods subsequent to the detachment of the warrants from the Units, the closing price of the Public Warrants was used as the fair value as of each relevant date.
The key inputs into the Binomial Lattice Model for the initial measurement of Public Warrants and Private Placement Warrants and subsequent measurement of the Private Place Warrants are as follows:
On December 31, 2020, the Private Placement Warrants and Public Warrants were determined to be valued at$
1.47per warrant for aggregate values of $
12.5million and $
million, respectively. On March 31, 2021, the Private Placement Warrants and Public Warrants were determined to be valued at$
1.69per warrant for aggregate values of $
19.7million and $
The following table presents the changes in the fair value of warrant liabilities:
During the three-month periods ended March 31, 2021 and March 31, 2020, respectively, there were no transfers out of Level 3.
