Note 10 – Write Down of assets and fair value measurements


Fair value is defined as the exchange price that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price) in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants on the measurement date. To measure fair value, a hierarchy has been established by generally accepted accounting principles which requires an entity to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs. This hierarchy uses three levels of inputs to measure the fair value of assets and liabilities as follows:


Level 1 – Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.


Level 2 – Observable inputs other than Level 1 including quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities, quoted prices in less active markets, or other observable inputs that can be corroborated by observable market data.


Level 3 – Unobservable inputs supported by little or no market activity for financial instruments whose value is determined using pricing models, discounted cash flow methodologies, or similar techniques, as well as instruments for which the determination of fair value requires significant management judgment or estimation.


As of December 31, 2014 and 2013, the Company does not have any assets or liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis.


The Company performed an analysis of long-lived assets and has identified certain areas considered to be fallow based on the following condition of the trees: no vegetative growth for the age of the trees, bad origins, bad land preparation, and no resistance to fungus.  The trees are not expected to produce a commercial yield or generate any future revenues.  As such, the Company has identified the costs associated with these areas originally capitalized as Plantation Development Cost and Deferred Growing Cost, which capitalized costs are not expected to be recoverable, and has written off $101,145 and $455,824 of such capitalized costs during the period ended December 31, 2014 and 2013, respectively.
