Note 11 - Fair Value Measurements
 
Accounting guidance defines fair value 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. Under this guidance, valuation techniques used to measure fair value must maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs. In addition, this guidance establishes a three-tier fair value hierarchy, which prioritizes the inputs used in measuring fair value. The Company classifies and discloses assets and liabilities carried at fair value in one of the following three categories:
 
Level 1 — quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets and liabilities;
 
Level 2 — inputs other than quoted prices included within Level 1 that are observable, either directly or indirectly, or can be corroborated by observable market data for substantially the full term of the assets or liabilities; and
 
Level 3 — significant unobservable inputs in which little or no market data exists, therefore requiring an entity to develop its own assumptions.
 
The Company believes that the carrying amounts of its financial instruments, including cash and cash equivalents, trade accounts receivable and accounts payable consist primarily of instruments without extended maturities, which approximate fair value primarily due to their short-term maturities and low risk of counterparty default. As of June 30, 2017, the Company determined the fair value of its senior credit facility term loan at $19.1 million. Such fair value is determined using discounted estimated future cash flows using level 3 inputs.
