Helpful Background Information

Enacted March 27, 2020 the CARES Act included several provisions designed to provide relief to individuals and businesses as well as the banking system. Among the more significant components of this legislation for our Company was the creation of the Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”). Loans made under the PPP are fully guaranteed as to principal and interest by the Small Business Administration (“SBA”), whose guarantee is backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. Government. PPP-covered loans also afford borrowers forgiveness up to the principal amount of the PPP-covered loan if the proceeds are used to retain workers and maintain payroll or make mortgage interest, lease and utility payments. The SBA will reimburse PPP lenders for any amount of a PPP-covered loan that is forgiven.

To help offset the impact of COVID-19, CARES offers payroll protection to businesses with fewer than 500 employees. The SBA will cover certain payroll and other operating costs used to calculate the loan amount as long as such businesses remain open and maintain payroll during this emergency. Loans may be fully forgiven if there are no employee layoffs for four months or if any employees previously laid off are rehired. The program works retroactively to February 15, 2020, to help restore the workforce.
