|DERIVATIVE FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS||DERIVATIVE FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS
From time to time, the Company may use derivatives to partially offset its business exposure to foreign currency risks on expected future cash flows. The Company enters into master netting arrangements to mitigate credit risk in derivative transactions by permitting net settlement of transactions with the same counterparty. The Company does not offset fair value amounts recognized for derivative instruments under master netting arrangements. The derivative agreements do not contain credit-risk-related contingent features. There are no amounts of related financial collateral received or pledged. The Company does not use any of its derivative instruments for speculative or trading purposes.
Cash Flow Hedges
The Company may use foreign exchange options or forward contracts to hedge a portion of its forecasted foreign currency denominated transactions. These foreign exchange hedge contracts, carried at fair value, have maturities of up to 18 months. As of March 31, 2023 and December 31, 2022, total notional amounts of outstanding cash flow hedges were $127.0 million and $134.7 million, respectively. As of March 31, 2023, $0.3 million of net gains losses will be reclassified from accumulated other comprehensive income into earnings within the next 12 months.
To receive hedge accounting treatment, all hedging relationships are formally documented at the inception of the hedge, and the hedges must be highly effective in offsetting changes to future cash flows on hedged transactions. The Company records changes in fair value of these cash flow hedges in accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) in its consolidated balance sheets, until the forecasted transaction occurs. When the forecasted transaction affects earnings, the Company reclassifies it to earnings in the same line item as the hedged items. The Company evaluates hedge effectiveness at the inception of the hedge prospectively, and on an ongoing basis both retrospectively and prospectively. In the event the underlying forecasted transaction does not occur, or it becomes probable that it will not occur, it will reclassify the gain or loss on the
related cash flow hedge from accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) to earnings. During the three months ended March 31, 2023, there were no net gains or losses recognized in earnings relating to hedges of forecasted transactions that did not occur.
The fair value of derivative instruments on the Company’s Consolidated Balance Sheets as of March 31, 2023 and December 31, 2022 were as follows, presented on a gross basis (in thousands):
