|CIMPRESS N.V. filed this Form 10-Q on 11/03/2017|
During the quarter ended September 30, 2017 and year ended June 30, 2017, there were no significant transfers in or out of Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3 classifications.
The valuations of the derivatives intended to mitigate our interest rate and currency risk are determined using widely accepted valuation techniques, including discounted cash flow analysis on the expected cash flows of each instrument. This analysis utilizes observable market-based inputs, including interest rate curves, interest rate volatility, or spot and forward exchange rates, and reflects the contractual terms of these instruments, including the period to maturity. We incorporate credit valuation adjustments to appropriately reflect both our own nonperformance risk and the respective counterparties' nonperformance risk in the fair value measurements. In adjusting the fair value of our derivative contracts for the effect of nonperformance risk, we have considered the impact of netting and any applicable credit enhancements.
Although we have determined that the majority of the inputs used to value our derivatives fall within Level 2 of the fair value hierarchy, the credit valuation adjustments associated with our derivatives utilize Level 3 inputs, such as estimates of current credit spreads, to appropriately reflect both our own nonperformance risk and the respective counterparties' nonperformance risk in the fair value measurement. However, as of September 30, 2017, we have assessed the significance of the impact of the credit valuation adjustments on the overall valuation of our derivative positions and have determined that the credit valuation adjustments are not significant to the overall valuation of our derivatives. As a result, we have determined that our derivative valuations in their entirety are classified in Level 2 in the fair value hierarchy.
Contingent consideration obligations are measured at fair value and are based on significant inputs not observable in the market, which represents a Level 3 measurement within the fair value hierarchy. The valuation of contingent consideration uses assumptions and estimates to forecast a range of outcomes and probabilities for the contingent consideration. Certain contingent consideration obligations are valued using a Monte Carlo simulation model. We assess these assumptions and estimates on a quarterly basis as additional data impacting the assumptions is obtained. Any changes in the fair value of contingent consideration related to updated assumptions and estimates will be recognized within general and administrative expenses in the consolidated statements of operations during the period in which the change occurs.
As part of the acquisition of WIRmachenDRUCK on February 1, 2016, we agreed to a variable contingent payment up to €40,000, previously based on the achievement of a cumulative gross profit target for calendar years 2016 and 2017. During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017, we determined it was reasonably certain, based on recent performance, that the maximum earn-out would be achieved. Subsequently, during the first quarter of fiscal 2018, we amended the terms of this arrangement to remove the performance target and agreed to pay the maximum amount in January 2018. The fair value of the liability is $46,316 as of September 30, 2017 and represents the present value of the agreed payment amount. Of the total liability, $5,734 is considered contingent consideration and included in the table below and the remaining portion of the liability is classified as a compensation arrangement as discussed in Note 7.
