Note 5. Fair Value Measurements
Financial Instruments and Fair Value
We account for financial instruments in accordance with
ASC 820, “Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures”
. ASC 820 establishes a fair value hierarchy that prioritizes the inputs to valuation techniques used to measure fair value. The hierarchy gives the highest priority to unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities (Level 1 measurements) and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs (Level 3 measurements). The three levels of the fair value hierarchy under ASC 820 are described below:
- Unadjusted quoted prices in active markets that are accessible at the measurement date for identical, unrestricted assets or liabilities;
- Quoted prices in markets that are not active or financial instruments for which all significant inputs are observable, either directly or indirectly; and
- Prices or valuations that require inputs that are both significant to the fair value measurement and unobservable.
The financial instruments recorded in our consolidated balance sheets consist primarily of cash, notes payable and accounts payable. The carrying amounts of our cash and accounts payable approximate fair value due to their short-term nature. The fair value of our debt approximates its carrying value of approximately $8.3 million. We had no other financial liabilities or assets that were measured at fair value as of September 30, 2018.
The entire disclosure of the fair value measurement of assets and liabilities, which includes financial instruments measured at fair value that are classified in shareholders' equity, which may be measured on a recurring or nonrecurring basis.
