Fair value measurements

 

The Company adopted the provisions of ASC Topic 820, “Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures”, which defines fair value as used in numerous accounting pronouncements, establishes a framework for measuring fair value and expands disclosure of fair value measurements.

 

The estimated fair value of certain financial instruments, including cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, accounts payable and accrued expenses are carried at historical cost basis, which approximates their fair values because of the short-term nature of these instruments. The carrying amounts of our short and long term credit obligations approximate fair value because the effective yields on these obligations, which include contractual interest rates taken together with other features such as concurrent issuances of warrants and/or embedded conversion options, are comparable to rates of returns for instruments of similar credit risk.

 

ASC 820 defines fair value as the exchange price that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price) in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants on the measurement date. ASC 820 also establishes a fair value hierarchy, which requires an entity to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs when measuring fair value. ASC 820 describes three levels of inputs that may be used to measure fair value:

 

  Level 1 — quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.
  Level 2 — quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets or inputs that are observable.
  Level 3 — inputs that are unobservable (for example cash flow modeling inputs based on assumptions).

 

The derivative liability in connection with the conversion feature of the convertible debt, classified as a Level 3 liability, is the only financial liability measure at fair value on a recurring basis.

 

The change in the Level 3 financial instrument is as follows:

 

Balance, December 31, 2016   $ 584,168  
Issued during the six months ended June 30, 2017     69,920  
Converted     (473,029 )
Change in fair value recognized in operations     587,548  
Balance, June 30, 2017   $ 768,607  

 

The estimated fair value of the derivative instruments was valued using the Black-Scholes option pricing model, using the following assumptions as of June 30, 2017:

 

Estimated dividends   None  
Expected volatility     210.49 %
Risk free interest rate     2.67 %
Expected term     .01-36 months  

 

Recent accounting pronouncements

 

We have evaluated all recent accounting pronouncements as issued by the FASB in the form of Accounting Standards Updates (“ASU”) through the date these financial statements were available to be issued and find no recent accounting pronouncements that would have a material impact on the financial statements of the Company.
