Fair Value Measurements


The fair value of the Company’s financial assets and liabilities reflects management’s estimate of amounts that the Company would have received in connection with the sale of the assets or paid in connection with the transfer of the liabilities in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. In connection with measuring the fair value of its assets and liabilities, the Company seeks to maximize the use of observable inputs (market data obtained from independent sources) and to minimize the use of unobservable inputs (internal assumptions about how market participants would price assets and liabilities). The following fair value hierarchy is used to classify assets and liabilities based on the observable inputs and unobservable inputs used in order to value the assets and liabilities:


Level 1:

Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities. An active market for an asset or liability is a market in which transactions for the asset or liability occur with sufficient frequency and volume to provide pricing information on an ongoing basis.


Level 2:

Observable inputs other than Level 1 inputs. Examples of Level 2 inputs include quoted prices in active markets for similar assets or liabilities and quoted prices for identical assets or liabilities in markets that are not active.


Level 3:

Unobservable inputs which are supported by little or no market activity and which are significant to the fair value of the assets or liabilities.

The Company has determined that the Private Placement Warrants are subject to treatment as a liability as the transfer of these warrants to anyone other than the purchasers or their permitted transferees would result in these warrants having substantially the same terms as the Public Warrants. The Public Warrants did not start trading separately until April 1, 2021, so the Company initially determined the fair value of each Private Placement Warrant using a Black-Scholes option-pricing model, which requires the use of significant unobservable market values. Accordingly, the Private Placement Warrants were initially classified as Level 3 financial instruments. After the Public Warrants started trading separately, the Company determined that the fair value of each Private

Placement Warrant approximates the fair value of a Public Warrant. Accordingly, the Private Placement Warrants are valued upon observable data and have been reclassified as Level 2 financial instruments.

The following table presents information about the Company’s assets and liabilities that are measured at fair value on a recurring basis as of September 30, 2021, and indicates the fair value hierarchy of the valuation inputs the Company utilized to determine such fair value:






September 30, 2021









Cash and marketable securities held in Trust Account





















Warrant liability








The fair value of the warrants was estimated using the following assumptions:




Upon Issuance


Stock Price










Risk free interest rate





Exercise price





Time to maturity - years






The change in the fair value of the Level 3 warrant liability during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 is as follows:

Fair value - end of period





The marketable securities held in the Trust Account are considered trading securities as they are generally used with the objective of generating profits on short-term differences in price and therefore, any realized and unrealized gains and losses are recorded in the condensed statements of operations and comprehensive loss for the period presented.

Additionally, there was $2,950 of interest accrued, but not yet credited to the Trust Account, which was recorded in the condensed balance sheet in interest receivable on cash and marketable securities held in Trust Account as of September 30, 2021.
