Note 4. Fair Value


Accounting standards define fair value as the price that would be received from selling an asset or paid to transfer a liability in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. Accounting standards establish a fair value hierarchy which requires an entity to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs when measuring fair value and also establishes the following three levels of inputs that may be used to measure fair value:


Level 1: Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

Level 2: Inputs other than Level 1 that are observable, either directly or indirectly, such as quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities; quoted prices in markets that are not active; or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data for substantially the full term of the assets or liabilities.

Level 3: Unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity and that are significant to the fair value of the assets and liabilities.


The following methods and assumptions were used by the Company in estimating fair value disclosures for financial instruments:



Cash, accounts receivable, and accounts payable and accrued liabilities: The amounts reported in the accompanying Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets approximate fair value due to their short-term nature.



Notes payable and lease liabilities: The carrying amount of notes payable approximated fair value due to variable interest rates at customary terms and rates the Company could obtain in current financing. The carrying value of lease liabilities approximated fair value due to the implicit rate in the lease in relation to the Company’s borrowing rate and the duration of the leases (Level 2 inputs).


Identifiable Intangible Assets


The initial recognition of the Progressive Care's identifiable intangible assets, resulting from the acquisition on July 1, 2023 and the application of push-down accounting, were measured using Level 3 inputs. The fair value at the date of acquisition was approximately $14.7 million.
