Note 10. Fair Value Measurements


During the first quarter of 2021, the Company elected to account for the $3.0 million investment in the 2020 Convertible Notes issued to the Major Investor using the fair value method. Further, the Major Investor Warrant was deemed to be a liability classified instrument due its variable settlement features. Both of these instruments were classified as Level 3 measurements within the fair value hierarchy.


The fair value of the Company’s 2020 Convertible Note issued to the Major Investor is measured as the sum of the instrument’s parts, being the underlying debt instrument and the conversion feature. The conversion feature was valued using the probability weighted conversion price discount. The instrument provided the holder the right to convert the instrument into shares of Series B Preferred Stock at a 20% discount. Given the timing of the issuance of the instrument near the Merger date, management determined that there was a 99.5% probability of the holders converting the instrument to Company shares at a 20% discount.


The Company valued the warrants issued with the 2020 Convertible Notes using a Black-Scholes-Merton model using the value of the underlying stock and exercise price of $2.01, along with a risk-free interest rate of 0.59% and volatility of 86%. The Company estimated the term of the warrant to be 5 years.


The Company’s 2020 Convertible Notes contain a share settled redemption feature (“Embedded Derivative”) that requires conversion at the lesser of specified discounts from qualified financing price per share or the fair value of the common stock at the time of conversion. The discount changes based on the passage of time between issuance of the convertible note and the conversion event. This feature is considered a derivative that requires bifurcation because it provides a specified premium to the holder of the note upon conversion. The Company measures the share-settlement obligation derivative at fair value based on significant inputs that are not observable in the market. This results in the liability classified as a Level 3 measurement within the fair value hierarchy.


Upon the Merger, all of the Level 3 instruments were exchanged for Vyant Bio equity classified instruments. Prior to their exchange, all of these instruments were marked to their fair market values with corresponding changes recorded in the statement of operations in the first quarter of 2021.


In the fourth quarter of 2021, the Company classified the vivoPharm business as discontinuing operations and applied held for sale accounting. The Company valued the vivoPharm business as of December 31, 2021 equally weighting public company revenue multiples as of December 31, 2021 and comparable transaction revenue multiples, which are classified as Level 3 measurements within the fair value hierarchy. The Company updated the valuation of the vivoPharm business during the quarter ending March 31, 2022 based on equally weighting public company revenue multiples and comparable transaction revenue multiples, which resulted in a $4.5 million decrease to the fair value of vivoPharm in the first quarter of. The Company recognized an impairment charge of $4.3 million during the quarter ended March 31, 2022, which decreased vivoPharm’s net carrying value, net of estimated disposal costs from $9.2 million as of December 31, 2021 to $4.9 million. During the second quarter of 2022, the Company received two offers for mutually exclusive components of the vivoPharm business and assessed the carrying value of each asset group using the estimated net sales proceeds based on these offers. As a result, the Company recorded a net impairment charge of $1.5 million during the second quarter of 2022. The Company recorded an impairment recovery of $388 thousand during the third quarter of 2022 based upon September 30, 2022 vivoPharm net assets.
