Note 9 — 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 December 31, 2022 and 2021 and indicates the fair value hierarchy of the valuation techniques that the Company utilized to determine such fair value.
December 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 the Public Warrants transferred from a Level 3 measurement to a Level 1 fair value measurement in March 2021 when the Public Warrants were separately listed and traded. The estimated fair value of the Private Placement Warrants was transferred from a Level 3 measurement to a Level 2 fair value measurement at the same time as Public Warrants, as the transfer of Private Placement Warrants to anyone who is not a permitted transferee would result in the Private Placement Warrants having substantially the same terms as the Public Warrants. The estimated fair value of Public Warrants was transferred from a Level 1 measurement to a Level 2 measurement due to lack of trading activity as of June 30, 2022. The Public Warrants were still held at Level 2 as of December 31, 2022, due to lack of trading activity. There were no other transfers to/from Levels 1, 2, and 3 during the years ended December 31, 2022 and 2021.
Level 1 instruments include investments in money market funds that invest solely in U.S. Treasury securities. The Company uses quoted market prices from dealers or brokers, and other similar sources to determine the fair value of its investments.
Level 2 instruments include Private Placement Warrants, Public Warrants and Working Capital Loan – related party. The Company uses the same quoted market prices from dealers or brokers, and other similar sources as Public Warrants to determine the fair value of its investments.
There were no Level 3 measurement inputs used at years ended December 31, 2022 and 2021.
There were no derivative assets and liabilities, measured with Level 3 inputs, for the year ended December 31, 2022. The change in the fair value of the derivative warrant liabilities, measured using Level 3 inputs, for the year ended December 31, 2021 is summarized as follows:
