Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

The fair value of certain of our financial instruments, including cash and cash equivalents, receivables, other current assets, accounts payable, accrued compensation and employee benefits, other accrued liabilities and notes payable, approximate their carrying amounts because of the short-term maturity of these instruments.

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

The Company adopted ASC 820 which defines fair value as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date (an exit price). The standard outlines a valuation framework and creates a fair value hierarchy in order to increase the consistency and comparability of fair value measurements and the related disclosures. Under this standard certain assets and liabilities must be measured at fair value, and disclosures are required for items measured at fair value.

 

The Company currently does not have non-financial assets or non-financial liabilities that are required to be measured at fair value on a recurring basis. The Company’s financial assets and liabilities are measured using inputs from the three levels of the fair value hierarchy. The three levels are as follows:

 

Level 1 - Inputs are unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities that the Company has the ability to access at the measurement date. The fair value of the Company’s cash is based on quoted prices and therefore classified as Level 1.

 

Level 2 - Inputs include quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets, quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in markets that are not active, inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for the asset or liability (e.g., interest rates, yield curves, etc.), and inputs that are derived principally from or corroborated by observable market data by correlation or other means (market corroborated inputs).

     

Level 3 - Unobservable inputs that reflect management’s assumptions about the assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability.

 

Application of Valuation Hierarchy

 

A financial instrument’s categorization within the valuation hierarchy is based upon the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement. The following is a description of the valuation methodology used to measure fair value, as well as the general classification of such instruments pursuant to the valuation hierarchy.

 

The Company has a contingent consideration liability of $1,785,375, which consists of contingent cash consideration of $1,735,375 resulting from the acquisition of CMP (Note 2), and $50,000 resulting from the acquisition of a web domain (Note 6). The contingent consideration liability is calculated based on the weighted average probability of meeting certain milestones. This liability is remeasured at each reporting period. The Company had no financial assets or liabilities that are measured at fair value on a recurring basis as of August 31, 2016.

 

The following table summarizes, for assets or liabilities measured at fair value, the respective fair value and the classification by level of input within the fair value hierarchy:

The Company classifies its contingent consideration liability within Level 2 as the valuation inputs are based on quoted market prices and market observable data. During the three months ended May 31, 2017, the Company did not recognize any change in the fair value of its contingent consideration liability of $1,785,375 from its inception date of May 1, 2017 and May 3, 2017.
