Fair Value Measurements Fair Value Measurements
The accounting standard for fair value measurements defines fair value, establishes a market-based framework or hierarchy for measuring fair value, and requires disclosures about fair value measurements. The standard is applicable whenever assets and liabilities are measured at fair value.
The fair value hierarchy established in the standard prioritizes the inputs used in valuation techniques into three levels as follows:
Level 1 Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets and liabilities;
Level 2 Quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets, quoted prices for identical or similar assets and liabilities in inactive markets, inputs other than quoted prices that are observable, and inputs derived from or corroborated by observable market data; or
Level 3 Amounts derived from valuation models in which unobservable inputs reflect the reporting entity’s own assumptions about the assumptions of market participants that would be used in pricing the asset or liability, such as discounted cash flow models or valuations.
The Company’s outstanding debt instruments are recorded at their carrying values in the condensed consolidated balance sheets, which may differ from their respective fair values. The estimated fair value of the Company’s debt, which is Level 2 of the fair value hierarchy, is based on quoted prices for similar instruments in active markets or identical instruments in markets that are not active.
The fair value of the Company’s Second Amended First Lien Term Loan Facility is calculated based upon market price quotes obtained for the Company’s debt agreements (Level 2 fair value inputs). The fair value of the
Second Amended Revolving Credit Facility approximates carrying value, based upon the short-term duration of the interest rate periods currently available to the Company. The estimated fair values were as follows:
