Note 9 — Fair Value Measurements
The following table presents information about the Company’s assets and liabilities that are measured at fair value on a recurring basis as of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021 and indicates the fair value hierarchy of the valuation techniques that the Company utilized to determine such fair value.
March 31, 2022
December 31, 2021
Transfers to/from Levels 1, 2, and 3 are recognized at the beginning of the reporting period. The estimated fair value of Public Warrants was transferred from a Level 3 measurement to a Level 1 measurement, when the Public Warrants were separately listed and traded in an active market in March 2021. The estimated fair value of the Private Placement Warrants and Working Capital Loan Warrants were transferred from a Level 3 measurement to a Level 2 fair value measurement in March 2021, as the transfer of Private Placement Warrants and Working Capital Loan Warrants to anyone who is not a permitted transferee would result in the Private Placement Warrants and Working Capital Loan Warrants having substantially the same terms as the Public Warrants, the Company determined that the fair value of each Private Placement Warrant and Working Capital Loan Warrants is equivalent to that of each Public Warrant. The Company transferred the fair value of the Forward Purchase Agreement to Level 2 from Level 3 in April 2021, as the underlying fair value of the warrants included in the Forward Purchase Agreement have substantially the same terms as the Public Warrants. There were no transfers between levels of the hierarchy for theended March 31, 2022.
Level 1 instruments include investments U.S. Treasury securities with an original maturity of 185 days or less. The Company uses inputs such as actual trade data, quoted market prices from dealers or brokers, and other similar sources to determine the fair value of its investments.
The estimated fair value of the Private Placement Warrants, Public Warrants, and the Working Capital Loan Warrants prior to the Public Warrants being separately listed and traded, is determined using Level 3 inputs. Inherent in a Monte Carlo simulation and Black-Scholes Option Pricing model are assumptions related to expected stock-price volatility, expected life, risk-free interest rate and dividend yield. The Black-Scholes analysis relies upon appropriate inputs derived from the Monte Carlo simulation of the public warrants; namely, the underlying stock price and the implied volatility from the traded Public Warrant price. The Company estimates the volatility of its Class A ordinary shares warrants based on implied volatility from the Company’s traded warrants and from historical volatility of select peer company’s ordinary shares 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.
For periods subsequent to the detachment of the Public Warrants from the Units, the fair value of the Public Warrants is based on the observable listed price for such warrants. The fair value of Private Placement Warrants, Working Capital Loan Warrants, and Forward Purchase Agreement was equivalent to that of the Public Warrants as they had substantially the same terms, however they are not actively traded, as such were listed as Level 2 in the hierarchy table above. The change in fair value is recognized in the unaudited condensed consolidated statements of operations.
