Note 7 – Derivatives and Hedging Activities
Cash Flow Hedges of Interest Rate Risk
As of each of December 31, 2022 and 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 entered into in order to hedge interest rate volatility with respect to the Company’s borrowings under the Term Loan Facility. The initial interest rate swap agreements were effective on December 1, 2021 and were scheduled to terminate on November 12, 2023. During the year ended December 31, 2022, in connection with the transition of the benchmark rate for borrowings under the Revolver/Term Loan Credit Agreement from LIBOR to SOFR, the Company terminated the initial interest rate swap agreements and entered into new interest rate swap agreements with an aggregate notional amount of $175.0 million, effective on December 1, 2022 and terminating on November 12, 2023.
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 December 31, 2022 and 2021 (in thousands):
During the years ended December 31, 2022 and 2021, the Company recorded unrealized gains of $7.8 million and $0.2 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 year ended December 31, 2020, as the interest rate swap agreement did not exist during that period.
During the years ended December 31, 2022 and 2021, the Company reclassified previous gains of $1.8 million and previous losses of $0.1 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 year ended December 31, 2020.
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 December 31, 2022 and 2021, the Company had no interest rate swaps that were not designated as qualifying hedging relationships.
