|Fair Value Measurements||Fair Value Measurements
Fair value is defined as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants. The Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures Topic of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification requires the use of valuation techniques that are consistent with the market approach, the income approach and/or the cost approach. Inputs to valuation techniques refer to the assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability. Inputs may be observable, meaning those that reflect the assumptions market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability developed based on market data obtained from independent sources, or unobservable, meaning those that reflect the Company's own assumptions about the assumptions market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability developed based on the best information available in the circumstances. In that regard, the Topic establishes a fair value hierarchy for valuation inputs that give the highest priority to quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs.
The fair value hierarchy is as follows:
Level 1: Quoted prices (unadjusted) for identical assets or liabilities in active markets that the Company has the ability to access as of the measurement date.
Level 2: Significant other observable inputs other than Level 1 prices such as quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities, quoted prices in markets that are not active, or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data.
Level 3: Significant unobservable inputs that reflect the Company's own assumptions about the assumptions that market participants would use in pricing an asset or liability.
The following table summarizes the financial assets and liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis segregated by the level of valuation inputs within the fair value hierarchy utilized to measure fair value (in thousands):
At December 31, 2020 and 2019, the warrant liability consists of stock warrants issued as part of the 2016 Offerings that contain contingent redemption features. At December 31, 2018, the warrant liability also included warrants issued as part of the 2017 Offering that contained contingent redemption features until they expired in June 2019. In accordance with derivative accounting for warrants, the Company calculated the fair value of warrants and the assumptions used are described in Note 14, “Fair Value of Warrants.” Realized and unrealized gains and losses related to the change in fair value of the warrant liability are included in other income (expense) on the Consolidated Statements of Operations and Other Comprehensive Loss.
At December 31, 2019, the Company had a note payable to VenturEast from a prior acquisition. The ultimate repayment of the note will be the value of and 3 thousand shares of common stock at the time of payment. The value of the note payable to VenturEast was determined using the fair value of the Company's common stock at the reporting date. During the years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, the Company recognized gains of $4 thousand and $136 thousand, respectively, due to the changes in value of the note. Realized and unrealized gains and losses related to the VenturEast note are included in other income (expense) on the Consolidated Statements of Operations and Other Comprehensive Loss.
In January 2020, the Company entered into a Settlement Agreement with VenturEast to satisfy the Company’s outstanding liability, which resulted in the Company issuing 3 thousand restricted shares of common stock, and making two lump sum payments of $50 thousand each for a total cash settlement of $100 thousand.
The Earn-Out, to be paid over the 24 months post-closing, is based on fees for all tests performed by siParadigm for the Company’s clinical customers during the 12-month period following the closing (the “Earn-Out”). The Company has netted the Earn-out and Advance from siParadigm as of September 30, 2020 as all amounts are fixed and determinable and the Company and siParadigm intend to offset. At December 31, 2020, the net Earn-Out receivable from siParadigm was approximately $91 thousand.
The following table summarizes the activity of the notes payable to VenturEast, the Earn-Out from siParadigm, and derivative warrants, which were measured at fair value using Level 3 inputs (in thousands):
The entire disclosure of the fair value measurement of assets and liabilities, which includes financial instruments measured at fair value that are classified in shareholders' equity, which may be measured on a recurring or nonrecurring basis.
