|Fair Value Disclosures [Abstract]|
|Fair Value Measurements||Fair Value Measurements
We measure fair value based on authoritative accounting guidance, which defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value, and expands on required disclosures regarding fair value measurements.
Inputs are referred to as assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability. The use of inputs in the valuation process are categorized into a three-level fair value hierarchy.
•Level 1 — uses quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities we have the ability to access.
•Level 2 — uses observable inputs other than quoted prices in Level 1, such as quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets; quoted prices for identical or similar assets and liabilities in markets that are not active; or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data.
•Level 3 — uses one or more significant inputs that are unobservable and supported by little or no market activity, and that reflect the use of significant management judgment.
Financial assets and liabilities with carrying amounts approximating fair value include cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, accounts payable, accrued expenses and other current liabilities. The carrying amount of these financial assets and liabilities approximates fair value because of their short maturities. At June 30, 2023 and March 31, 2023, no assets or liabilities were valued using Level 3 criteria, except for those acquired in our recent acquisition of Powerblanket, discussed in Note 2, "Acquisition."
Information about our financial assets and liabilities is as follows:
At June 30, 2023 and March 31, 2023, the fair value of our long-term debt is based on market quotes available for issuance of debt with similar terms. As the quoted price is only available for similar financial assets, the Company concluded the pricing is indirectly observable through dealers and has been classified as Level 2.
Additionally, we acquired certain assets and liabilities as disclosed in Note 2, "Acquisition" at fair value according to purchase price accounting.
Deferred Compensation Plan
The Company provides a non-qualified deferred compensation plan for certain highly compensated employees where payroll contributions are made by the employees on a pre-tax basis. Included in “Other non-current assets” in the condensed consolidated balance sheets at June 30, 2023 and March 31, 2023 were $7,304 and $6,350, respectively, of deferred compensation plan assets held by the Company. Deferred compensation plan assets (mutual funds) are measured at fair value on a recurring basis based on quoted market prices in active markets (Level 1). The Company has a corresponding liability to participants of $6,615 and $5,671 included in “Other non-current liabilities” in the condensed consolidated balance sheets at June 30, 2023 and March 31, 2023, respectively. Deferred compensation plan expense/(income) is included as such in the condensed consolidated statement of operations, and therefore is excluded from "Selling, general and administrative expenses." Deferred compensation plan expense/(income) was $273 and $(660) for the three months ended June 30, 2023 and 2022, respectively. Expenses and income from our deferred compensation plan were offset by unrealized gains and losses for the deferred compensation plan included in "Other income/expense" on our condensed consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive income. Our unrealized losses and (gains) on investments were $(283) and $637, respectively, for the three months ended June 30, 2023 and 2022, respectively.
Trade Related Foreign Currency Forward Contracts
We transact business in various foreign currencies and have established a program that primarily utilizes foreign currency forward contracts to address the risk associated with the effects of certain foreign currency exposures. Under this program, increases or decreases in our foreign currency exposures are offset by gains or losses on the forward contracts to mitigate foreign currency transaction gains or losses. These foreign currency exposures arise from intercompany transactions as well as third party accounts receivable or payable that are denominated in foreign currencies. Our forward contracts generally have terms of 30 days. We do not use forward contracts for trading purposes or designate these forward contracts as hedging instruments pursuant to ASC 815. We adjust the carrying amount of all contracts to their fair value at the end of each reporting period and unrealized gains and losses are included in "Other income/(expense)" on our condensed consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive income. These gains and losses are designed to offset gains and losses resulting from settlement of receivables or payables by our foreign operations which are settled in currency other than the local transactional currency. The fair value is determined by quoted prices from active foreign currency markets (Level 2). Fair value amounts for such forward contracts on our condensed consolidated balance sheets are either classified as accounts receivable, net or accrued liabilities depending on whether the forward contract is in a gain (accounts receivable, net) or loss (accrued liabilities) position. Our ultimate realized gain or loss with respect to currency fluctuations will depend on the currency exchange rates and other factors in effect as the contracts mature. As of June 30, 2023 and March 31, 2023, the notional amounts of forward contracts were as follows:
Foreign currency gains or losses related to our forward contracts in the accompanying condensed consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive income were a gain of $173 and a loss of $(296) in the three months ended June 30, 2023 and 2022, respectively. Gains and losses from our forward contracts were offset by transaction gains or losses incurred with the settlement of transactions denominated in foreign currencies. For the three months ended June 30, 2023 and 2022, our net foreign currency transactions resulted in a gain of $25 and a loss of $(359), respectively.
