Fair Value Measurements
The Company measures certain financial assets and liabilities at fair value on a recurring basis, including equity securities, co-promote termination payments receivable and the related liability, contingent liabilities, and the Company's convertible senior notes.
The fair value of the Company’s investments which are classified as short-term investments is determined using quoted market prices in active markets. These securities were received by the Company in December 2012 and June 2014 as a result of an event-based payment and an upfront license payment, respectively, under licensees. Additionally, the liability for CVRs for Metabasis are determined using quoted market prices in active markets.
The fair value of the Company's convertible senior notes is estimated by using the quoted market rate in an inactive market, which is classified as a Level 2 input.
The co-promote termination payments receivable represents a non-interest bearing receivable for future payments to be made by Pfizer and is recorded at its fair value. The fair value is subjective and is affected by changes in inputs to the valuation model including management’s assumptions regarding future Avinza product sales. The receivable and liability will remain equal, and are adjusted each reporting period for changes in the fair value of the obligation including any changes in the estimate of future net Avinza product sales. The fair value of the liabilities for CyDex contingent liabilities were determined based on the income approach using a Monte Carlo analysis. The fair value is subjective and is affected by changes in inputs to the valuation model including management’s assumptions regarding revenue volatility, probability of commercialization of products, estimates of timing and probability of achievement of certain revenue thresholds and developmental and regulatory milestones which may be achieved and affect amounts owed to former license holders and CVR holders. Changes in these assumptions can materially affect the fair value estimate.

Other Fair Value Measurements-2019 Convertible Senior Notes
In August 2014, the Company issued $245.0 million aggregate principal amount of convertible senior unsecured notes due 2019 (the "2019 Convertible Senior Notes"). The Company uses a quoted market rate in an inactive market, which is classified as a Level 2 input, to estimate the current fair value of its 2019 Convertible Senior Notes. The estimated fair value of the 2019 Senior Convertible Notes was $229.8 million as of September 30, 2014. The carrying value of the notes does not reflect the market rate. See Note 7 Financing Arrangements for additional information.
