Fair Value Measurements
Financial Instruments Recorded at Fair Value on a Recurring Basis
During the three months ended September 25, 2021, the Company recognized a $60 million gain, in Other income (expense), due to an increase in the fair value of an equity investment. This equity investment is classified as Level 1 as it is valued using quoted prices for identical instruments in active markets. As of September 25, 2021, the fair value of this equity investment, included in Other non-current assets on the consolidated balance sheet, was $63 million.
Financial Instruments Not Recorded at Fair Value
The Company carries its financial instruments at fair value except for its debt. The carrying amounts and estimated fair values of the Company’s debt are as follows:
The estimated fair value of the Company’s debt is based on Level 2 inputs of quoted prices for the Company’s debt and comparable instruments in inactive markets. The estimated fair value of the 2.125% Notes takes into account the current value of the Company’s stock price compared to the initial conversion price of approximately $8.00 per share of common stock.
The fair value of the Company’s accounts receivable, accounts payable and other short-term obligations approximate their carrying value based on existing terms.
