|Fair Value Measurements||Fair Value Measurements
The following tables set forth the fair value of the Company’s financial assets and liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis in the condensed consolidated balance sheets as of September 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, based on the three-tier fair value hierarchy, as described in detail within the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K:
The Company assesses the categorization of assets and liabilities by level at each measurement date, and transfers between levels are recognized on the actual date of the event or when changes in circumstances caused the transfer, in accordance with the Company’s accounting policy regarding the recognition of transfers between levels of the fair value hierarchy. There were no transfers between Levels I, II and III during the nine months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022.
Fair Value of Assets Used to Fund the Deferred Compensation Liability
The table below presents a reconciliation of the assets used to fund the Company's deferred compensation liability, which is measured at fair value on a recurring basis using significant unobservable inputs (Level III) for the period from December 31, 2022 to September 30, 2023:
The fair market value of the assets used to fund the Company's deferred compensation liability is based upon the cash surrender value of the Company's life insurance premiums. The value of the assets used to fund the Company's deferred compensation liability, which are included in other assets in the condensed consolidated balance sheets, increased due to net gains on the underlying investment vehicles. These gains are recognized in the Company's earnings and included in in the condensed consolidated statements of operations.
Fair Value of Debt Agreements
The Company considered its Convertible Notes to be Level II liabilities as of September 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, and used a market approach to calculate their respective fair values. The estimated fair value for each convertible note was determined based on estimated or actual bids and offers in an over-the-counter market on September 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, respectively (See “Note 12—Debt”).
Fair Value of Other Financial Assets and Liabilities
The Company considered the recorded value of its other financial assets and liabilities, which consist primarily of cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable and accounts payable, to approximate the fair value of the respective assets and liabilities as of September 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, based upon the short-term nature of these assets and liabilities.
