Long-Term Note Payable


On May 4, 2020, the Company entered into a forgivable loan from the U.S. Small Business Administration (“SBA”) resulting in net proceeds of $1,200,047 pursuant to the Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”) enacted by Congress under the CARES Act administered by the SBA (the “PPP Loan”). To facilitate the PPP Loan, the Company entered into a Note Payable Agreement with a bank (the “Lender”) (the “PPP Loan Agreement”). The PPP Loan had an original maturity date of May 4, 2022, and accrued interest at a rate of 1.00% per annum, with interest accruing throughout the period the PPP Loan was outstanding, or until forgiven.


The PPP Loan was accounted for as a financial liability in accordance with FASB ASC 470, “Debt,” (“ASC 470”) Accordingly, the proceeds from the PPP Loan were recorded as a long-term liability on the balance sheet until either (1) the loan is, in part or wholly, forgiven and the company had been “legally released” or (2) the Company paid off the loan to the Lender. Interest was accrued in accordance with the interest method.


In May 2021, the PPP loan was forgiven pursuant to the terms and conditions of the PPP Loan Agreement and the provision of the Cares Act. Upon forgiveness, and legal release, the Company reduced the liability by the amount forgiven, totaling $1,213,000 and recorded a gain on extinguishment in the consolidated statement of operations for three months ended June 30, 2021.
