Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities Disclosure [Abstract]  
Interest Rate Derivative Instrument
In June 2021, the Company entered into an interest rate swap agreement for a notional amount of $300.0 million, effective June 28, 2021, with an expiration date of May 28, 2026, which hedges the floating LIBOR on a portion of the term loan (Tranche A, $1.10 billion balance) under the Credit Agreement to a fixed rate of 0.986%. The Company elected to designate this interest rate swap as a cash flow hedge for accounting purposes.
As of September 30, 2021, our derivative was in a $0.4 million net liability position and recorded in "other current liabilities" on our consolidated balance sheet. As this cash flow hedge is considered effective, any future gains and losses are reflected within Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income in the Consolidated Statements of Comprehensive Income. No ineffectiveness was recorded on this contract during year ended September 30, 2021.
