We account for the liability and equity components of the Convertible Notes separately, and in a manner that will reflect our nonconvertible debt borrowing rate when interest cost is recognized in subsequent periods. The effective interest rate on the liability component is 3.92%.  Contractual interest was $1.2 million and amortization of the debt discount was $0.7 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2018 and 2017.  At August 31, 2017, the remaining period over which the debt discount will be amortized was 3.25 years, the unamortized debt discount was $10.4 million, and the carrying amount of the equity component was $20.7 million.

The following table summarizes our financial obligations and their expected maturities at August 31, 2017 and the effect such obligations are expected to have on our liquidity and cash flow in the periods indicated.

(1)

Excluded from other long-term liabilities are our gross long-term liabilities for unrecognized tax benefits, which totaled $18.3 million at August 31, 2017. Currently, we cannot predict with reasonable reliability the timing of cash settlements to the respective taxing authorities related to these liabilities.

(2)

These amounts represent our estimated cash contributions to be made in the periods indicated for our pension and postretirement plans, assuming no actuarial gains or losses, assumption changes or plan changes occur in any period.  The projection results assume the required minimum contribution will be contributed.  

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

We do not have any off-balance sheet financings, other than the minimum operating lease commitments included in the above Contractual Obligations table. We have no subsidiaries that are not included in our financial statements, nor do we have any interests in, or relationships with, any special purpose entities that are not reflected in our financial statements.

OTHER MATTERS

Environmental Matters

Environmental obligations continue to be appropriately addressed and, based upon the latest available information, it is not anticipated that the outcome of such matters will materially affect our results of operations or financial condition. Our critical accounting policies and estimates set forth above describe our method of establishing and adjusting environmental-related accruals and should be read in conjunction with this disclosure. For additional information, refer to “Part II, Item 1. Legal Proceedings.”
