On April 10, 2020, CareView Communications, Inc., a Texas corporation (the “Borrower”), a wholly owned subsidiary of CareView Communications, Inc., a Nevada corporation (the “Company”), applied to BOKF, NA (“Bank of Oklahoma”) under the U.S. Small Business Administration (the “SBA”) Paycheck Protection Program of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act of 2020 (the “CARES Act”) for a loan of $781,800 (the “SBA Loan”). On April 13, 2020, the SBA Loan was approved and the Borrower received the SBA Loan proceeds, which the Borrower plans to use for covered payroll costs, rent and utilities in accordance with the relevant terms and conditions of the CARES Act.
The SBA Loan, which took the form of a promissory note issued by the Borrower (the “Promissory Note”), has a two-year term, matures on April 10, 2022, and bears interest at a rate of 1.0% per annum. Monthly principal and interest payments, less the amount of any potential forgiveness (discussed below), will commence on November 10, 2020. The Borrower did not provide any collateral or guarantees for the SBA Loan, nor did the Borrower pay any facility charge to obtain the SBA Loan. The Promissory Note provides for customary events of default, including, among others, those relating to failure to make payment when due under the Promissory Note, bankruptcy, breaches of representations and material adverse effects. The Borrower may prepay the principal of the SBA Loan at any time without incurring any prepayment charges.
The SBA Loan may be forgiven partially or fully if the SBA Loan proceeds are used for covered payroll costs, rent and utilities, provided that such amounts are incurred during the eight-week period that commenced on April 13, 2020 and at least 75% of any forgiven amount has been used for covered payroll costs. Any forgiveness of the SBA Loan will be subject to approval by the SBA and Bank of Oklahoma and will require the Borrower to apply for such treatment in the future.
The foregoing description of the SBA Loan is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Promissory Note, a copy of which is attached as an exhibit to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated by reference into this Item 1.01.
The information set forth in Item 1.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K that relates to the creation of direct financial obligations of the Company is incorporated by reference into this Item 2.03.
This Current Report on Form 8-K contains forward-looking statements concerning the Company’s expectations, anticipations, intentions, or beliefs regarding the SBA Loan. These express or implied statements are not promises or guarantees and involve substantial risks and uncertainties. Among the factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those described or projected herein are the following: financial market conditions; actions by the SBA Loan parties; changes by the SBA or other governmental authorities regarding the CARES Act, the Payroll Protection Program or related administrative matters; and the Company’s and the Borrower’s ability to comply with the terms of the SBA Loan and the CARES Act, including to use the proceeds of the SBA Loan as described herein. The Company undertakes no obligation to update the information contained in this Current Report on Form 8-K to reflect subsequently occurring events or circumstances.
