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:
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 term loan credit facility, our senior notes, our senior secured notes and our cash flow hedges.
The fair values of our term loan credit facility, our senior notes and our senior secured 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.
The entire disclosure for the fair value of financial instruments (as defined), including financial assets and financial liabilities (collectively, as defined), and the measurements of those instruments as well as disclosures related to the fair value of non-financial assets and liabilities. Such disclosures about the financial instruments, assets, and liabilities would include: (1) the fair value of the required items together with their carrying amounts (as appropriate); (2) for items for which it is not practicable to estimate fair value, disclosure would include: (a) information pertinent to estimating fair value (including, carrying amount, effective interest rate, and maturity, and (b) the reasons why it is not practicable to estimate fair value; (3) significant concentrations of credit risk including: (a) information about the activity, region, or economic characteristics identifying a concentration, (b) the maximum amount of loss the entity is exposed to based on the gross fair value of the related item, (c) policy for requiring collateral or other security and information as to accessing such collateral or security, and (d) the nature and brief description of such collateral or security; (4) quantitative information about market risks and how such risks are managed; (5) for items measured on both a recurring and nonrecurring basis information regarding the inputs used to develop the fair value measurement; and (6) for items presented in the financial statement for which fair value measurement is elected: (a) information necessary to understand the reasons for the election, (b) discussion of the effect of fair value changes on earnings, (c) a description of [similar groups] items for which the election is made and the relation thereof to the balance sheet, the aggregate carrying value of items included in the balance sheet that are not eligible for the election; (7) all other required (as defined) and desired information.
