Fair Value Measurements
ASC 820 specifies a fair value framework and hierarchy based upon the observability of inputs used in valuation techniques. In accordance with this guidance, fair value measurements are classified under the following hierarchy:
Level 1 - Quoted prices for identical instruments in active markets.
Level 2 - Quoted prices for similar instruments in active markets; quoted prices for identical or similar instruments in markets that are not active and model-derived valuations in which all significant inputs or significant value-drivers are observable in active markets.
Level 3 - Model-derived valuations in which one or more significant inputs or significant value-drivers are unobservable.
As of September 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, the fair value of our commodity derivative contracts was a net asset of $0.2 million and $1.7 million, respectively. In accordance with ASC 820, our commodity derivative contracts are considered Level 2 fair value measurements as they consist of both quoted price inputs and inputs provided by a third party that are derived principally from or corroborated by observable market data by correlation. These assumptions include, but are not limited to, those concerning interest rates, credit rates, discount rates, default rates and other factors. All of our derivative commodity contracts have a set term of 24 months or less.
As of September 30, 2018, the fair value of our interest rate swap was an asset of $1.0 million. The interest rate swap is measured using a valuation model with observable inputs from active markets and is a Level 2 fair value measurement.
We neither hold assets or liabilities requiring a Level 3 measurement nor have we had any transfers between the hierarchy levels during 2018 or 2017.
For purposes of financial reporting, we have determined that the carrying value of cash, accounts receivable, accounts payable, and accrued expenses approximates fair value due to their short term nature. As of September 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, the fair value of our money market funds, which are presented in cash and cash equivalents, was $68.4 million and $17.1 million, respectively. These cash equivalents are valued using quoted market prices at the respective balance sheet dates and are Level 1 fair value measurements.
Additionally, given the revolving nature and the variable interest rates, we have determined that the carrying value of the ABL Facility also approximates fair value. As of September 30, 2018, the fair value of our Term Loan B Facility approximated $316.0 million compared to a carrying value of $313.6 million. As of December 31, 2017, the fair value of our Term Loan B Facility approximated $318.7 million compared to a carrying value of $316.0 million. The fair values of the Term Loan B Facility were based upon quotes from financial institutions (Level 2 in the fair value hierarchy as defined by ASC 820).
