Note 8 - Fair Value Measurements
The following table presents information about the Company’s financial assets and liabilities that are measured at fair value on a recurring basis as of June 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, and indicates the fair value hierarchy of the valuation techniques that the Company utilized to determine such fair value.
Transfers to/from Levels 1, 2 and 3 are recognized at the end of the reporting period. The Company transferred $31,567,500 of Public Warrants out of Level 3 to Level 1 due to the use of a quoted price in an active market. There were no other transfers between levels for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021.
As of December 31, 2020, the fair value of the Public Warrants issued in connection with the Initial Public Offering and Private Placement Warrants were measured at fair value using a Monte Carlo simulation model. As of June 30, 2021, the Company utilizes the Black-Scholes option pricing model and a quoted price in an active market to estimate the fair value of the Private Placement Warrants and Public Warrants, respectively, with changes in fair value recognized in the unaudited condensed consolidated statement of operations. For the three months ended June 30, 2021, the Company recognized a change from an increase in the fair value of liabilities of approximately $1,013,000 and for six months ended June 30, 2021, the Company recognized a change from a decrease in the fair value of liabilities of approximately $9,161,000, presented on the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated statements of operations.
The change in the fair value of the derivative warrant liabilities, measured with Level 3 inputs, for three and six months ended June 30, 2021 is summarized as follows:
The estimated fair value of the Private Placement Warrants is determined using Level 3 inputs. Inherent in a Black-Scholes option pricing model are assumptions related to expected stock-price volatility, expected life, risk-free interest rate and dividend yield. The Company estimates the volatility of its common stock based on historical volatility of select peer companies that matches the expected remaining life of the warrants. The risk-free interest rate is based on the U.S. Treasury zero-coupon yield curve on the grant date for a maturity similar to the expected remaining life of the warrants. The expected life of the warrants is assumed to be equivalent to their remaining contractual term. The dividend rate is based on the historical rate, which the Company anticipates remaining at zero.
The following table provides quantitative information regarding Level 3 fair value measurements inputs as their measurement dates:
