Borrower must make all payments at the place Lender designates. The payment terms for this Note are:
Initial Deferment Period: No payments are due on this loan for 6 months from the date of first disbursement of this loan. Interest will continue to accrue during the deferment period.
Loan Forgiveness: Borrower may apply for forgiveness of the amount due on this loan in an amount equal to the sum of the following costs incurred by Borrower during the 8-week period beginning on the date of first disbursement of this loan:
|b.||Any payment of interest on a covered mortgage obligation (which shall not include any prepayment of or payment of principal on a covered mortgage obligation)|
|c.||Any payment on a covered rent obligation|
|d.||Any covered utility payment|
The amount of loan forgiveness shall be calculated (and may be reduced) in accordance with the requirements of the Paycheck Protection Program, including the provisions of Section 1106 of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) (P.L. 116-136). Not more than 25% of the amount forgiven can be attributable to non-payroll costs. In the event Borrower has received an EIDL advance, such amount shall be subtracted from the loan forgiveness amount.
Maturity: This Note will mature two years from date of first disbursement of this loan.
Repayment Terms: The interest rate on this Note is one percent per year. The interest rate is fixed and will not be changed during the life of the loan.
Borrower must pay monthly principal and interest payments on the outstanding principal balance of the Loan amortized over the term of the Loan, unless otherwise forgiven in whole or part in accordance with the CARES Act as described above, beginning seven months from the month this Note is dated until Maturity. Payments of principal and interest must be made on such date as designated by the Lender in the months they are due. Any Loan balance remaining following forgiveness by the SBA (as described above) will be fully reamortized over the remaining term of the Loan. The entire principal balance remaining unpaid, along with all accrued and unpaid interest, shall be due and payable at Maturity.
Lender will apply each installment payment first to pay interest accrued to the day Lender receives the payment, then to bring principal current, then to pay any late fees, and will apply any remaining balance to reduce principal.
Loan Prepayment: Notwithstanding any provision in this Note to the contrary:
Borrower may prepay this Note at any time without penalty. Borrower may prepay 20 percent or less of the unpaid principal balance at any time without notice. If Borrower prepays more than 20 percent and the Loan has been sold on the secondary market, Borrower must: a. Give Lender written notice; b. Pay all accrued interest; and c. If the prepayment is received less than 21 days from the date Lender received the notice, pay an amount equal to 21 days interest from the date lender received the notice, less any interest accrued during the 21 days and paid under b. of this paragraph. If Borrower does not prepay within 30 days from the date Lender received the notice, Borrower must give Lender a new notice.
Non-Recourse. Lender and SBA shall have no recourse against any individual shareholder, member or partner of Borrower for non-payment of the loan, except to the extent that such shareholder, member or partner uses the loan proceeds for an unauthorized purpose or otherwise fails to comply with the requirements of the Paycheck Protection Program..
