The entire balance due under this Note is due and payable in full on the Loan Due Date.




This is a “term” loan and is not a revolving credit arrangement. Customer has no right to receive a re-advance in the future of loan proceeds due to payments or other principal reductions in this Note. If the Total Amount of Loan shown above is not fully disbursed at the Date of Initial Disbursement, then Bank will make no further disbursement after sixty (60) days from the SBA Approval Date or if a default (as defined in the Agreement) exists. If that occurs, then Bank may recompute the amortization and repayment schedules and notify Customer of the recomputed payment schedule.




Notwithstanding anything in this Note, the Agreement or any documents evidencing this loan (collectively, “Loan Documents”) to the contrary, Customer may prepay this Note.

If Customer prepays more than twenty percent (20%) and the loan has been sold on the secondary market, Customer must:




Give Bank written notice;




Pay all accrued interest; and




If the prepayment is received less than twenty-one (21) days from the date Bank receives the notice, pay an amount equal to twenty-one (21) days’ interest from the date Bank receives the notice, less any interest accrued during the twenty-one (21) days and paid under subparagraph b., above.


If Customer does not prepay within thirty (30) days from the date Bank receives the notice, Customer must give Bank a new notice.




This loan is being made by Bank to Customer pursuant to the Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”), which is part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (“Act”), and the provisions of the Act and the rules, regulations, and guidance applicable to loans under the PPP, as amended from time to time (“Rules”), are incorporated herein by reference.

If all or part of any term of the Loan Documents is disallowed or impermissible under the Act or Rules, such term shall be deemed to be stricken from the Loan Documents, and the Loan Documents as amended shall remain in full force and effect in accordance with the Act and Rules. Customer represents and warrants that it will use the loan proceeds in compliance with the Act and Rules and only for permissible costs and expenses under the Act and Rules. Customer represents and warrants that all representations, authorizations, and certifications made by Customer in its application for the loan under the PPP are true, accurate, and correct as of the date hereof.




All or part of the loan may be forgiven if Customer satisfies and complies with the terms and conditions for loan forgiveness under the Act and Rules.
