7. Fair Value Measurement
The following tables present the Company’s financial instruments that are measured at fair value on a recurring basis:
Cash equivalents consisting of money market funds of $11.7 million and money market funds and time deposits of $2.5 million as of September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, respectively, were classified as Level 1 of the fair value hierarchy and valued using quoted market prices in active markets.
Contingent consideration relates to potential payments that the Company may be required to make associated with a business combination. To the extent that the valuations of these liabilities are based on inputs that are less observable or not observable in the market, the determination of fair value requires more judgment. Accordingly, the degree of judgment exercised in determining fair value is greatest for measures categorized in Level 3.
Rollforward of the fair value measurements of the contingent consideration categorized with Level 3 inputs as of September 30, 2021 is as follows:
The fair value of the component of contingent consideration related to achievement of revenue targets have been estimated using a Monte Carlo model to simulate future performance of the acquired business under a risk-neutral framework; significant assumptions include a risk-adjusted discount rate of 13.5% and revenue volatility of 29.0%. The fair value of the component of contingent consideration related to achievement of four technical milestones have been estimated using situation-based modeling, which considers the probability-weighted present value of the expected payout amount.
