Fair Value Disclosures [Abstract]  
Fair Value Measurements


The Company applies the provisions of ASC Topic 820 “Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures ” in determining the fair value of its financial and nonfinancial assets and liabilities. ASC Topic 820 establishes a valuation hierarchy for disclosure of the inputs to valuation used to measure fair value. This hierarchy prioritizes the inputs into three broad levels as follows. Level 1 inputs are quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities. Level 2 inputs are quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets or inputs that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly through market corroboration. Level 3 inputs are unobservable inputs based on our own assumptions used to measure assets and liabilities at fair value. A financial asset or liability’s classification within the hierarchy is determined based on the lowest level input that is significant to the fair value measurement.

Refer to Note 6 for presentation of the fair values of debt obligations which are disclosed at fair value on a recurring basis.

At December 31, 2018, there were no assets or liabilities carried at fair value measured on a recurring basis. The following table provides the assets and liabilities carried at fair value measured on a recurring basis as of December 31, 2017 (dollars in thousands):








Level 1



Level 2



Level 3

Interest rate swaps
















Interest rate swaps are over the counter securities with no quoted readily available Level 1 inputs, and therefore are measured at fair value using inputs that are directly observable in active markets and are classified within Level 2 of the valuation hierarchy, using the income approach.
