FAIR VALUE MEASURES
Certain assets and liabilities are reported at fair value on either a recurring or nonrecurring basis. Fair value is defined as an exit price, representing the amount that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants, under a three-tier fair value hierarchy that prioritizes the inputs used in measuring fair value as follows:
Level 1 — observable inputs such as quoted prices for identical assets or liabilities in active liquid markets;
Level 2 — inputs, other than the quoted market prices in active markets, that are observable, either directly or indirectly; or observable market prices in markets with insufficient volume or infrequent transactions; and
Level 3 — unobservable inputs for which there is little or no market data available, that require the reporting entity to develop its own assumptions.
Assets and liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis as of March 31, 2018 are as follows (in thousands):
Assets and liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis as of December 31, 2017 are as follows (in thousands):
Assets and liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis as of March 31, 2017 are as follows (in thousands):
(1) Investments have remaining maturities of less than one year.
Level 1 instrument valuations are obtained from real-time quotes for transactions in active exchange markets involving identical assets. Level 2 instrument valuations are obtained from inputs, other than quoted market prices in active markets, which are directly or indirectly observable in the marketplace and quoted prices in markets with limited volume or infrequent transactions.
Non-recurring Fair Value Measurements
There were no material assets and liabilities measured at fair value on a nonrecurring basis as of March 31, 2018, December 31, 2017 or March 31, 2017.
