The following table summarizes the financial assets and liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis as of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021 and the level they fall within the fair value hierarchy (in thousands):
Non-Company Owned Life Insurance ("COLI") assets held in our deferred supplemental compensation plan consist of equity funds with fair value based on observable inputs such as quoted prices for identical assets in active markets and changes in fair value are recorded as selling, general and administrative expenses.
We were a party to interest rate swap agreements qualifying as cash flow hedges under which we hedged a portion of our variable-rate debt until the agreements expired in February and March 2022. As of December 31, 2021, the fair value of such swap agreements was $0.2 million, a liability recorded in accrued expenses and other current liabilities in our consolidated balance sheets. As of December 31, 2021, we had $0.2 million, net of an income tax effect of $58 thousand, included in accumulated other comprehensive income in the accompanying balance sheets related to the cash flow hedges. The amounts paid and received on the swap agreements are recorded in interest expense in the period during which the related floating-rate interest is incurred.
In connection with the acquisition of Global Parts in July 2021, we may be required to pay earn-out obligation payments of up to $2.0 million should Global Parts meet certain financial targets during the twelve months following the acquisition and meet a certain milestone event on or before March 2023. Changes in the earn-out obligation measured at fair value on a recurring basis using unobservable inputs (Level 3) for the three months ended March 31, 2022 are as follows (in thousands):
The carrying amounts of cash and cash equivalents, receivables, accounts payable and amounts included in other current assets and accrued expenses and other current liabilities that meet the definition of a financial instrument approximate fair value due to their relatively short maturity. The carrying value of our outstanding debt obligations approximates its fair value. The fair value of long-term debt is calculated using Level 2 inputs based on interest rates available for debt with terms and maturities similar to our existing debt arrangements.
The entire disclosure of the fair value measurement of assets and liabilities, which includes financial instruments measured at fair value that are classified in shareholders' equity, which may be measured on a recurring or nonrecurring basis.
