In August 2018, FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2018-13, Fair Value Measurement (Topic 820): Disclosure Framework—Changes to the Disclosure Requirements for Fair Value Measurement (ASU 2018-13). The new standard makes various modifications to the disclosure requirements on fair value measurement in Topic 820. Adoption of ASU 2018-13 is required for fiscal reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2019, including interim reporting periods within those fiscal years with early adoption being permitted. The Company does not expect the adoption of ASU 2018-13 to have a material impact on its consolidated financial statements.
Note 3— Fair Value Measurement
Based on the observability of the inputs used in the valuation techniques used to determine the fair value of certain financial assets and liabilities, the Company is required to provide the following information according to the fair value hierarchy. The fair value hierarchy ranks the quality and reliability of the information used to determine fair values.
In general, fair values determined by Level 1 inputs utilize quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities. Fair values determined by Level 2 inputs utilize 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 for substantially the full term of the related assets or liabilities. Fair values determined by Level 3 inputs are unobservable data points for the asset or liability, and include situations where there is little, if any, market activity for the asset or liability. The following table presents information about the Company’s financial assets and liabilities that have been measured at fair value as of September 30, 2018, and indicates the level within the fair value hierarchy of the valuation inputs utilized to determine such fair value (in thousands):
