|Fair Value Measurements||
To limit exposure to volatility in the LIBOR interest rate, the Company has entered into interest rate swap agreements, which effectively convert the variable interest rate on the outstanding revolving credit facility discussed in Note 12 to a fixed rate. The fair values of the interest rate swap agreements were determined by reference to a third-party valuation, which is considered a Level 2 input within the fair value hierarchy of valuation techniques.
As indicated in Note 6, we acquired Estel Biosciences, Inc. of San Diego, California (“Estel”) on October 26, 2022 and EUPROTEIN Inc. of North Brunswick, New Jersey (“EUPROTEIN”) on April 30, 2022. The fair values of inventories acquired, if applicable, were valued using Level 2 inputs, which included data points that were observable, such as established values of comparable assets and historical sales information (market approach). Identifiable intangible assets, if applicable and specifically the acquired customer relationships, were valued using Level 3 inputs, which are unobservable by nature, and included internal estimates of future cash flows and attrition rates (income approach). Significant increases (decreases) in any of those unobservable inputs, as of the date of the acquisition, in isolation would result in a significantly lower (higher) fair value measurement.
The following table provides information by level for financial assets and liabilities that are measured at fair value on a recurring basis, the carrying values for which are included within other assets of the December 31, 2022 and September 30, 2022 Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets, respectively:
