NOTE 10 - FAIR VALUE PRESENTATION

The Company measures fair value and discloses fair value measurements for financial assets and liabilities. Fair value is based on the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. The accounting standard establishes a fair value hierarchy that prioritizes observable and unobservable inputs used to measure fair value into three broad levels, which are described below:

Level 1: Quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets that are accessible at the measurement date for assets or liabilities. The fair value hierarchy gives the highest priority to Level 1 inputs.
Level 2: Observable inputs that are based on inputs not quoted on active markets but corroborated by market data.
Level 3: Unobservable inputs are used when little or no market data is available. The fair value hierarchy gives the lowest priority to Level 3 inputs.
   
  In determining fair value, the Company utilizes valuation techniques that maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs, to the extent possible, and considers credit risk in its assessment of fair value.

As of August 31, 2018, and November 30, 2017, the Company’s assets and liabilities that are measured at fair value and classified as level 3 fair value are as follows (in thousands):

    August 31,     November 30,  
    2018     2017  
    Level 3     Level 3  
Embedded derivatives convertible loans*(1) $   -   $ 37  
Call/Put option derivatives $   -   $ (339 )

*

The embedded derivative is presented in the Company's balance sheets on a combined basis with the related host contract (the convertible loans).


  (1)

The fair value is determined by using a Black-Scholes Model.

The fair value of the convertible bonds is equal to their principal amount and the aggregate accrued interest.
