Note 7 – Derivatives and Hedging Activities
Cash Flow Hedges of Interest Rate Risk
As of each of September 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the Company had interest rate swap agreements with an aggregate notional amount of $175.0 million, which were designated as cash flow hedges under U.S. GAAP. The interest rate swap agreements were effective on December 1, 2021 and mature on November 12, 2023. The interest rate swap agreements were entered into in order to hedge interest rate volatility with respect to the Company’s borrowings under the Term Loan Facility.
The table below presents the fair value of the Company’s derivative financial instrument designated as a cash flow hedge as well as its classification in the Company’s consolidated balance sheets as of September 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021 (in thousands):
During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022, the Company recorded unrealized gains of $1.9 million and $7.2 million, respectively, for changes in the fair value of its cash flow hedge in accumulated other comprehensive income. There were no similar amounts recorded during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, as the interest rate swap agreement did not exist during such periods.
During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022, the Company reclassified previous gains of $0.7 million and $0.5 million, respectively, from accumulated other comprehensive income into interest expense as a result of the hedged transactions impacting earnings. There were no similar amounts recorded during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021.
During the next twelve months, the Company estimates that an additional $6.3 million will be reclassified from other comprehensive income as a decrease to interest expense.
Derivatives Not Designated as Hedging Instruments
As of each of September 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the Company had no interest rate swaps that were not designated as qualifying hedging relationships.
