NOTE 14 – FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS
The accounting guidance establishes a valuation hierarchy for disclosure of the inputs to valuation used to measure fair value. This hierarchy prioritizes the inputs into three broad levels as follows:
Level 1 – Observable inputs that reflect unadjusted quoted prices for identical assets or liabilities in active markets that the Company has the ability to access at the measurement date.
Level 2 – Observable inputs such as quoted prices for similar instruments and quoted prices in markets that are not active, and inputs that are directly observable or can be corroborated by observable market data. The types of assets and liabilities included in Level 2 are typically either comparable to actively traded securities or contracts, such as treasury securities with pricing interpolated from recent trades of similar securities, or priced with models using highly observable inputs, such as commodity options priced using observable forward prices and volatilities.
Level 3 – Significant inputs to pricing that have little or no observability as of the reporting date. The types of assets and liabilities included in Level 3 are those with inputs requiring significant management judgment or estimation, such as the complex and subjective models and forecasts used to determine the fair value of financial instruments.
Financial assets and liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis as of March 31, 2023 and December 31, 2022 are summarized below.
The estimated fair value of the CVRs as of March 31, 2023 and December 31, 2022 was $7,652,714 and $7,402,714, respectively, as noted above. The Company recorded a $250,000 loss on the fair value remeasurement of the CVRs during the first quarter of 2023 related to a $250,000 gain on an earnout payment realized in the first quarter of 2023 related to legacy CSI’s sale of its Electronics and Software segment in 2021.
The estimated fair value of all earnout consideration as of March 31, 2023 and December 31, 2022 was $2,975,000 and $2,150,000, respectively all attributed to the earnout consideration related to the SUNation Acquisition. As noted in Note 3, Business Combinations, the Company recorded a liability for earnout shares to holders of certain pre-merger Pineapple Energy shareholders in the amount of $4,684,000 and $2,150,000 in earnout consideration related to the SUNation Acquisition in the respective opening balance sheets. As described in Note 3, Business Combinations, the estimated fair value is considered a Level 3 measurement. In order to update the fair value of the earnout consideration, the Company utilized a Monte Carlo simulation, which included the following significant assumptions: the expected probability and timing of achievement of milestone events. As a result of the fair value remeasurement, the Company recorded a remeasurement gain of $4,684,000 during the year ended December 31, 2022 related to the remeasurement of the value of the liability for the earnout shares and a remeasurement loss of $825,000 related to the remeasurement of the value of the liability for SUNation Acquisition earnout consideration during the first quarter of 2023.
The fair value remeasurements noted above were recorded within other income (expense) in the condensed consolidated statements of operations.
We record transfers between levels of the fair value hierarchy, if necessary, at the end of the reporting period. There were no transfers between levels during the three months ended March 31, 2023.
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.
