8. FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS
The Company’s financial assets and liabilities that are measured at fair value on a recurring basis as of March 31, 2016 by level within the fair value hierarchy, are as follows (in thousands):
There were no transfers between Level 1, 2 or 3 during the three months ended March 31, 2016.
The following table presents additional information about Level 3 liabilities measured at fair value. Both observable and unobservable inputs may be used to determine the fair value of positions that the Company has classified within the Level 3 category. As a result, the unrealized gains and losses for assets and liabilities within the Level 3 category may include changes in fair value that were attributable to both observable (e.g., changes in market interest rates) and unobservable (e.g., changes in unobservable long-dated volatilities) inputs.
Changes in Level 3 liabilities measured at fair value for the three months ended March 31, 2016 were as follows (dollars in thousands):
The Company’s warrant liabilities, derivative liabilities and share-settled debt are measured at fair value using the Monte Carlo simulation valuation methodology. A summary of weighted average (in aggregate) about significant unobservable inputs (Level 3 inputs) used in measuring the Company’s warrant liabilities that are categorized within Level 3 of the fair value hierarchy for the years ended December 31, 2015 is as follows:
* The Company uses comparable companies within the same industry to derive at the 72% annualized volatility.
