Fair value of financial instruments
The carrying amounts and fair values of financial assets and financial liabilities with their corresponding valuation categories are summarised in the following table. Not reflected therein are cash and cash equivalents, trade receivables and payables as well as miscellaneous receivables and payables whose carrying amount corresponds to a reasonable estimation of their fair value. The fair value hierarchy encompasses the following three levels:
- Level 1: stock-exchange quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities;
- Level 2: other factors which are observable on markets for assets and liabilities, either directly or indirectly;
- Level 3: factors that are not based on observable market data.
