NOTE 10 — FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS
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 is a description of the valuation methodology used for assets and liabilities measured at fair value:
US Treasury Securities: The Company classifies its U.S. Treasury and equivalent securities as held-to-maturity in accordance with ASC Topic 320 “Investments - Debt and Equity Securities.” Held-to-maturity securities are those securities which the Company has the ability and intent to hold until maturity. Held-to-maturity treasury securities are recorded at amortized cost on the accompanying balance sheet and adjusted for the amortization or accretion of premiums or discounts.
Warrant Liabilities: The Company classifies its Public and Private Placement Warrants as liabilities in accordance with ASC Topic 815 “Derivatives and Hedging–Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity”. The Company’s valuation of the warrant liabilities utilized a Binomial Lattice in a risk-neutral framework (a special case of the Income Approach). The fair value of the Public Warrants utilized Level 1 inputs as they are traded on an active market. The fair value of the Private Placement Warrants utilized Level 3 inputs as it is based on the significant inputs not observable in the market as of June 30, 2021.
At June 30, 2021, assets held in the Trust Account were comprised of $345,009,910 in U.S. Mutual Fund. As of June 30, 2021, the Company has not withdrawn any interest income from the Trust Account. At December 31, 2020, assets held in the Trust Account were comprised of $345,000,000 in U.S. Mutual Funds.
The following table presents information about the Company’s assets that are measured at fair value on a recurring basis at June 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020 and indicates the fair value hierarchy of the valuation inputs the Company utilized to determine such fair value. The gross holding gains and fair value of held-to-maturity securities at June 30, 2021 and December 31, 2021 are as follows:
The following table presents information about the Company’s liabilities that are measured at fair value on a recurring basis at June 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020 and indicates the fair value hierarchy of the valuation inputs the Company utilized to determine such fair value.
The following table provides quantitative information regarding the Level 3 inputs used for the fair value measurements:
The following table presents the changes in the fair value of Level 3 warrant liabilities:
Transfers to/from Levels 1, 2 and 3 are recognized at the end of the reporting period in which a change in valuation technique or methodology occurs. The estimated fair value of the Public Warrants transferred from a Level 3 measurement to a Level 1 fair value measurement during the six months ended June 30, 2021 was $16,905,000. The estimated fair value of the Private Placement Warrants transferred from a Level 3 measurement to a Level 2 fair value measurement during the six months ended June 30, 2021 was $8,722,000.
