2. FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS

Fair value is 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. Accounting Standards Codification 820 establishes a three-level valuation hierarchy for fair value measurements. These valuation techniques are based upon observable and unobservable inputs. Observable inputs reflect market data obtained from independent sources, while unobservable inputs reflect less

transparent active market data, as well as internal assumptions. These two types of inputs create the following fair value hierarchy:

Level 1—Quoted prices for identical instruments in active markets;

Level 2—Quoted prices for similar instruments in active markets; quoted prices for identical or similar instruments in markets that are not active; and model-derived valuations whose significant inputs are observable; and

Level 3—Instruments with significant unobservable inputs.

Impairment losses related to property and equipment are calculated using significant unobservable inputs including the present value of future cash flows expected to be generated using a risk-adjusted weighted-average cost of capital and comparable store sales growth assumptions, and therefore, are classified as a Level 3 measurement in the fair value hierarchy. Impairment losses related to store-level operating lease assets are calculated using rent per square foot derived from observable market data, and therefore, are classified as a Level 2 measurement in the fair value hierarchy.

Impairment losses related to goodwill and other indefinite-lived intangible assets are calculated based on the estimated fair value of each reporting unit, which is determined using significant unobservable inputs including the present value of future cash flows expected to be generated by the reporting unit using a weighted-average cost of capital, terminal values and updated financial projections for the next five years and are classified as Level 3 measurements in the fair value hierarchy.

Due to the impact of COVID-19, we performed an interim impairment assessment of goodwill and other long-lived assets as of May 2, 2020, which included estimated future cash flow assumptions incorporating the impact of our temporary store closures. Due to the uncertainty around COVID-19, our projected future cash flows may differ materially from actual results. There were no material impairment losses identified as a result of this assessment.

The carrying value of cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable and accounts payable approximates their estimated fair values due to the short maturities of these instruments.

The table below provides the fair values of our senior secured term loan facility (“Amended and Restated Term Loan Credit Facility”), our 8% senior notes maturing in 2027 (“2027 Senior Notes”) and our cash flow hedges.

The fair values of our Amended and Restated Term Loan Credit Facility and our 2027 Senior Notes were determined based on quoted market prices which are considered Level 1 inputs within the fair value hierarchy.

The fair value of our cash flow hedges were calculated using significant observable inputs including the present value of estimated future cash flows using the applicable interest rate curves and, therefore, were classified as Level 2 inputs within the fair value hierarchy. The short-term and long-term portions of our cash flow hedges are recorded in accrued liabilities and other liabilities, respectively, in our consolidated balance sheets.
