Marketable securities were comprised as follows (in millions):
During fiscal 2016, the Company exited an investment in a debt fund for which the Company elected the fair value option. The investment would have otherwise been recorded using the equity method. Changes in fair value associated with this investment were recognized in investment and other income, net. During fiscal 2016 and 2015, the net decrease in fair value associated with this investment was negligible and $10 million, respectively. At September 24, 2017, marketable securities also included $4 million of time deposits with original maturities that range from 94 to 285 days.
At September 24, 2017, the contractual maturities of available-for-sale debt securities were as follows (in millions):

The following table shows the gross unrealized losses and fair values of the Company’s investments in individual securities that are classified as available-for-sale and have been in a continuous unrealized loss position deemed to be temporary for less than 12 months and for more than 12 months, aggregated by investment category (in millions):
In connection with the proposed NXP transaction (Note 9), the Company divested a substantial portion of its marketable securities portfolio in order to finance, in part, that transaction. Marketable securities that were expected to be used to finance the NXP transaction were classified as noncurrent at September 24, 2017 as they are not considered available for current operations. Given the change in the Company’s intention to sell certain marketable securities, the Company recognized other-than-temporary impairment losses in fiscal 2017 for such marketable securities (Note 2) and may recognize additional losses prior to the sale of such marketable securities. For the available-for-sale securities that are not expected to be sold to finance the NXP transaction, the Company concluded that the unrealized losses were temporary at September 24, 2017. Further, for debt securities with unrealized losses, as of September 24, 2017, the Company did not have the intent to sell, nor was it more likely than not that the Company would be required to sell, such securities before recovery or maturity.
The entire disclosure for investments in certain debt and equity securities.
