Fair Value Measurements
GAAP utilizes a fair value hierarchy that prioritizes the inputs to valuation techniques used to measure fair value into three broad levels. The fair value hierarchy gives the highest priority to observable quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets and liabilities (Level 1 measurement), then priority to quoted prices for similar instruments in active markets, quoted prices for identical or similar instruments in markets that are not active and model-based valuation techniques for which all significant assumptions are observable in the market (Level 2 measurement) and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs (Level 3 measurement).
As of February 3, 2018 and January 28, 2017 the Company had $450,000 in Level 2 investments in the form of bank certificates of deposit. The Company's investments in certificates of deposits were measured using inputs based upon quoted prices for similar instruments in active markets and, therefore, were classified as Level 2 investments. As of February 3, 2018 and January 28, 2017 the Company also had long-term variable rate Credit Facilities, classified as Level 2, with carrying values of $73,899,000 and $85,388,000. As of February 3, 2018 and January 28, 2017, $2,326,000 and $3,242,000 was classified as current. The fair value of the variable rate Credit Facilities approximates and is based on its carrying value. The Company has no Level 3 investments that use significant unobservable inputs.
Non Financial Assets Measured at Fair Value - Nonrecurring Basis
As of January 28, 2017 the Company had an intangible FCC broadcasting license asset with a carrying value of $12,000,000. The intangible FCC broadcasting license, which was included in the Boston television station sale, WWDP, was sold during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017. See Note 4 - "Intangible Assets" for additional information. Prior to such sale, the Company estimated the fair value of its FCC television broadcast license asset primarily by using income-based discounted cash flow models. In determining fair value, the Company considered, among other factors, the advice of an independent outside fair value consultant. The discounted cash flow models utilized a range of assumptions including revenues, operating profit margin, projected capital expenditures and an unobservable input discount rate of 10.0%. The Company concluded that the inputs used in its intangible FCC broadcasting license asset valuation were Level 3 inputs.
The following table provides a reconciliation of the beginning and ending balances of non-financial assets measured at fair value on a nonrecurring basis that use significant unobservable inputs (Level 3):
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.
