|Fair Value Measurements||
The Company measures the fair value of financial instruments using a fair value hierarchy that prioritizes the inputs to valuation techniques used to measure fair value into three broad levels. Each level of input has different levels of subjectivity and difficulty involved in determining fair value.
The Company’s financial assets and liabilities that are measured at fair value on a recurring basis as of December 31, 2022 and 2021 by level within the fair value hierarchy, are as follows:
There were no transfers between Level 1, 2 or 3 during the years ended December 31, 2022 or 2021.
As described previously in Note 4, the conversion provisions embedded in the Convertible Note require bifurcation and measurement at fair value as a derivative. The fair value was calculated using a Monte Carlo simulation to create a distribution of potential market capitalizations and share prices for the Company on a weekly basis over the assumed period, given the various scenarios. The average value of the Convertible Note was discounted to the valuation date to determine a calibrated discount rate so that the fair value of the Convertible Note was $3 million. The value of the Convertible Note was compared with the value of a hypothetical note with no conversion rights in order to determine the fair value of the conversion feature.
As of December 31, 2021, the Company did not have a derivative liability. The Series A Preferred Stock was exchanged for common stock and warrants during the year ended December 31, 2021, thereby eliminating the conversion feature which gave rise to the derivative. Prior to the exchange, the Company had measured the fair value of the derivative by estimating the fair value of the Series A Preferred Stock as if conversion occurred at the end of the reporting period. The Company calculated the value of the conversion feature using the Fixed Conversion Price of the Series A Preferred Stock, as adjusted to 95% of the volume weighted average price of the common stock for the previous ten trading days constrained by the specified floor price of $30.00. The changes in the fair value of the derivative liability for the years ended December 31, 2022 and 2021 were as follows:
The changes in fair value of the derivative liability are recorded in change in fair value of derivative liability in the consolidated statements of operations.
The following table includes a summary of changes in fair value of the Company’s warrant liabilities measured at fair value using significant unobservable inputs (Level 3) for the years ended December 31, 2022 and 2021:
The changes in fair value of the warrant liabilities are recorded in change in fair value of warrant liability in the consolidated statements of operations.
