NOTE 8. DERIVATIVE FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS
The Company’s primary exchange rate risk management objective is to mitigate the uncertainty of anticipated cash flows attributable to changes in foreign currency exchange rates. The Company primarily focuses on mitigating changes in cash flows resulting from sales denominated in currencies other than the U.S. dollar. The Company manages this risk primarily by using currency forward and option contracts. If the anticipated transactions are deemed probable, the resulting relationships are formally designated as cash flow hedges. The Company accounts for these contracts as cash flow hedges and tests effectiveness by determining whether changes in the expected cash flow of the derivative offset, within a range, changes in the expected cash flow of the hedged item.
During the twelve months ended December 31, 2022, the Company held commodity derivative contracts to mitigate the risk of commodity price fluctuations associated with raw material costs. The Company held no outstanding commodity derivative contracts as of December 31, 2022. These contracts were not designated as accounting hedges and the changes in fair value of the instruments are recognized in earnings. During the twelve months ended December 31, 2022, losses of $(795) were recorded in Other, net.
During the year ended December 31, 2021, the Company held currency forward contracts to mitigate currency fluctuations related to the estimated cash purchase price of Rhino-Rack totaling $AUD 193,650 with a maturity date of July 1, 2021. These contracts were not designated as accounting hedges and the changes in fair value of the instruments are recognized in earnings. During the year ended December 31, 2021, losses of $4,281 were recorded in Other, net.
At December 31, 2022, the Company’s derivative contracts had remaining maturities of less than . The counterparties to these transactions had both long-term and short-term investment grade credit ratings. The maximum net exposure of the Company’s credit risk to the counterparties is generally limited to the aggregate unrealized loss of all contracts with that counterparty. As of December 31, 2022, there was no such exposure to the counterparties. The Company’s exposure of counterparty credit risk is limited to the aggregate unrealized gain of $351 on all contracts as of December 31, 2022. The Company’s derivative counterparties have strong credit ratings and as a result, the Company does not require collateral to facilitate transactions.
The Company held the following contracts designated as hedged instruments as of December 31, 2022 and 2021:
For contracts that qualify as effective hedge instruments, the effective portion of gains and losses resulting from changes in fair value of the instruments are included in accumulated other comprehensive loss and reclassified to sales in the period the underlying hedged transaction is recognized in earnings. Gains (losses) of $3,124 and ($223) were reclassified to sales during the years ended December 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively.
