|Fair Value Measurements||Fair Value Measurements
Financial instruments recorded at fair value in the financial statements are categorized as follows:
•Level 1: Observable inputs that reflect quoted prices for identical assets or liabilities in active markets.
•Level 2: 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 assets or liabilities.
•Level 3: Unobservable inputs reflecting management's assumptions incorporated in valuation techniques used to determine fair value. These assumptions are required to be consistent with market participant assumptions that are reasonably available.
The following table summarizes the assets measured at fair value on a recurring basis by level within the fair value hierarchy for the periods presented (in thousands):
For the periods ended September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020 the fair value of debt was $10.6 million and $4.4 million, respectively (Level 2). The carrying amounts of certain financial instruments, including accounts receivable, accounts payable, and accrued liabilities approximate fair value due to their short-term maturities and are excluded from the fair value tables above.
