Fair Value Measurements Fair Value Measurements
ASC 820 defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value and expands disclosures about fair value measurements. Fair value is defined under ASC 820 as the exit price associated with the sale of an asset or transfer of a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. ASC 820 establishes the following three-tier fair value hierarchy, which prioritizes the inputs used in measuring fair value:
Level 1 - Quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets that are accessible at the measurement date for assets or liabilities. The fair value hierarchy gives the highest priority to Level 1 inputs.
Level 2 - Inputs other than Level 1 that are observable, either directly or indirectly, such as quoted prices for similar assets and 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 used when little or no market data is available. The fair value hierarchy gives the lowest priority to Level 3 inputs.
During the third quarter of 2021, we sold vacant land located in Canada for $1.6 million resulting in a gain of $0.7 million. Also during this period, we sold a building located in the United Kingdom for $1.1 million resulting in a gain of $0.8 million. The gain on disposal of these assets is reported in general and administrative expense in the condensed consolidated statements of operations. The book value of these assets was in other current assets on the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet.
The following financial instruments are not measured at fair value on our consolidated balance sheet as of September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020 but require disclosure of their fair values: cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, and accounts payable. The carrying value of these financial instruments approximates fair values because of their relatively short maturity.
