Fair Value Measurements




The Company uses a three-tier fair value hierarchy to classify and disclose all assets and liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis, as well as assets and liabilities measured at fair value on a non-recurring basis, in periods subsequent to their initial measurement.  These tiers include:


Level 1, defined as quoted market prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities;


Level 2, defined as 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, model-based valuation techniques for which all significant assumptions are observable in the market, or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data for substantially the full term of the assets or liabilities; and


Level 3, defined as unobservable inputs that are not corroborated by market data.

The carrying value of financial instruments including cash and cash equivalents accounts receivable and accounts payable and accrued expenses, lines of credit, and other liabilities approximate fair value due to the short-term nature of these instruments.  Assets and liabilities assumed in the acquisition of  the Ion software, Concept Development Inc., and Bressner Technology GmbH were recorded at fair value based upon the Company’s market assumptions which approximated carrying value (except for acquired intangible assets – Note 3) due to the short-term nature of the instruments.  The carrying amounts of existing lines of credit and notes payable approximate their fair values at the stated interest rates and are reflective of the prevailing market rates.
