conform to the terms of the amended preferred stock. Because of the AMC transaction and the then-existing terms of the 2015 Warrants, the warrant exercise price was reduced from $4.50 to $3.00; however, the exercise price was further reduced down to $1.50 for warrants to acquire 1.5 million shares of common stock, and down to $2.37 for warrants to acquire 150,000 shares of common stock. Because of the October 14, 2016 amendment, we began accounting for the 2015 Warrants as equity awards and reclassified the carrying balance of the warrants to shareholders’ equity.

During the nine months ended September 30, 2017, warrant holders exercised warrants for approximately 106,000 shares with an exercise price of $1.50. We received cash proceeds of $0.2 million.

On October 3, 2012, we issued warrants with a term of five years that provide the warrant holder the right to acquire one share of our common stock for $36.00 per share (the 2012 Warrants). The warrants expired on October 3, 2017.

 

 

NOTE 10. FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS

Stock Warrant and Other Derivative Liabilities

Certain warrants are accounted for as derivative liabilities, which require us to carry them on our consolidated balance sheet at their fair value. Our derivative liability warrants consist of the AMC Tranche C Warrant to acquire 5.0 million shares of common stock and our 2012 Warrants to acquire 7.0 million shares of common stock. Prior to the amendment on October 14, 2016, our 2015 Warrants to purchase 3.1 million shares of our common stock and the preferred stock’s embedded conversion feature were being accounted for as derivative liabilities as well.

We determined the fair value of the AMC Tranche C warrant using a lattice model, which is classified as Level 3 within in the fair-value hierarchy. Inputs to the model include our publicly-traded stock price, our stock volatility, the risk-free interest rate and contractual terms of the warrant (which are remaining life of the warrant, exercise price and assumptions pertaining to increasing the number of acquirable shares of common stock to achieve 50.1% ownership). We use the closing stock price of our common stock to compute stock volatility. To quantify and value the possibility of increasing the number of acquirable shares, management took into consideration its current capital structure, the impact of the 20% penalty if we were to fail to meet certain equity issuance conditions, and management’s best estimates of the likelihood of being subject to the 20% penalty. The AMC Tranche C warrant was valued at $13.4 million as of September 30, 2017 and $9.8 million as of December 31, 2016. During the current year, the AMC Tranche C warrant increased in value as a result of an increase in our common stock price.

We determined the fair value of our 2012 Warrants using a Monte Carlo simulation model. Because the warrants are so far out-of-the-money (exercise price is $36.00 per share) and as they approach their expiration date (which is October 2017) their fair value is effectively zero as of December 31, 2016 and September 30, 2017.

Prior to the October 14, 2016 amendment, we were using a lattice model to value the 2015 Warrants, which was classified as Level 3 within the fair-value hierarchy. Inputs to the model were stock volatility, contractual warrant terms (which were remaining life of the warrant and the exercise price), the risk-free interest rate and management’s assessment of the likelihood of doing a down-round transaction.

Prior to the October 14, 2016 amendment, we were using the lattice model to value the preferred stock’s embedded conversion feature, which was classified as Level 3 within the fair-value hierarchy. Inputs to the model were stock volatility, contractual terms (which were remaining life of the conversion option and the conversion rate), the risk-free interest rate and management’s assessment of the likelihood of doing a down-round transaction.
