|Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities Disclosure [Abstract]|
|DERIVATIVE INSTRUMENTS||DERIVATIVE INSTRUMENTS
Our risk management and derivative accounting policies are presented in Notes 1 and 6 of our consolidated financial statements included in our 2019 Annual Report and have not changed significantly for the nine months and three months ended November 30, 2019.
We have investments in certain equity securities and other rights which provide us with the option to purchase an additional ownership interest in the equity securities of Canopy (see Note 9). These investments are included in securities measured at fair value and are accounted for at fair value, with the net gain (loss) from the changes in fair value of these investments recognized in income (loss) from unconsolidated investments (see Note 6).
The aggregate notional value of outstanding derivative instruments is as follows:
We are exposed to credit-related losses if the counterparties to our derivative contracts default. This credit risk is limited to the fair value of the derivative contracts. To manage this risk, we contract only with major financial institutions that have earned investment-grade credit ratings and with whom we have standard International Swaps and Derivatives Association agreements which allow for net settlement of the derivative contracts. We have also established counterparty credit guidelines that are regularly monitored. Because of these safeguards, we believe the risk of loss from counterparty default to be immaterial.
In addition, our derivative instruments are not subject to credit rating contingencies or collateral requirements. As of November 30, 2019, the estimated fair value of derivative instruments in a net liability position due to counterparties was $8.1 million. If we were required to settle the net liability position under these derivative instruments on November 30, 2019, we would have had sufficient available liquidity on hand to satisfy this obligation.
Results of period derivative activity
The estimated fair value and location of our derivative instruments on our balance sheets are as follows (see Note 6):
The principal effect of our derivative instruments designated in cash flow hedging relationships on our results of operations, as well as Other Comprehensive Income (Loss) (“OCI”), net of income tax effect, is as follows:
We expect $20.4 million of net gains, net of income tax effect, to be reclassified from accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) (“AOCI”) to our results of operations within the next 12 months.
The effect of our undesignated derivative instruments on our results of operations is as follows:
