Fair Value Measurements

(4)    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).

On July 30, 2021, the Company entered into a long-term variable rate credit agreement with Siena Lending Group, which is classified as Level 2 and had a carrying value of $47,245,000 as of July 31, 2021.  Also on July 30, 2021, the PNC revolver and term loan were paid in full, and the PNC Credit Facility was terminated.   As of July 31, 2021 and January 30, 2021, the Company’s long-term variable rate PNC Credit Facility (as defined below), classified as Level 2, had carrying values of $0 and $53,380,000. As of July 31, 2021 and January 30, 2021, $0 and $2,714,000 of the long-term variable rate PNC Credit Facility was classified as current. The fair value of the PNC Credit Facility approximated, and was based on, its carrying value due to the variable rate nature of the financial instrument. See Note 7 – “Credit Agreements” for additional details of our credit arrangements. The Company had no Level 3 investments that use significant unobservable inputs as of July 31, 2021 and January 30, 2021.
