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:
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).
The entire disclosure for the fair value of financial instruments (as defined), including financial assets and financial liabilities (collectively, as defined), and the measurements of those instruments as well as disclosures related to the fair value of non-financial assets and liabilities. Such disclosures about the financial instruments, assets, and liabilities would include: (1) the fair value of the required items together with their carrying amounts (as appropriate); (2) for items for which it is not practicable to estimate fair value, disclosure would include: (a) information pertinent to estimating fair value (including, carrying amount, effective interest rate, and maturity, and (b) the reasons why it is not practicable to estimate fair value; (3) significant concentrations of credit risk including: (a) information about the activity, region, or economic characteristics identifying a concentration, (b) the maximum amount of loss the entity is exposed to based on the gross fair value of the related item, (c) policy for requiring collateral or other security and information as to accessing such collateral or security, and (d) the nature and brief description of such collateral or security; (4) quantitative information about market risks and how such risks are managed; (5) for items measured on both a recurring and nonrecurring basis information regarding the inputs used to develop the fair value measurement; and (6) for items presented in the financial statement for which fair value measurement is elected: (a) information necessary to understand the reasons for the election, (b) discussion of the effect of fair value changes on earnings, (c) a description of [similar groups] items for which the election is made and the relation thereof to the balance sheet, the aggregate carrying value of items included in the balance sheet that are not eligible for the election; (7) all other required (as defined) and desired information.
