INFORMATION TO BE INCLUDED IN THE REPORT
Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On April 24, 2020 Black Ridge Oil & Gas, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a loan agreement with Kensington Bank (“Kensington”), as lender (the “Loan Agreement”) encompassing a $112,925 Promissory Note issued to Kensington (the “PPP Note”) pursuant to Payroll Protection Program established as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (the “CARES Act”), which provides loans to qualifying businesses and is administered by the U.S. Small Business Administration (the “SBA”). The PPP Note bears interest at 1.00% per annum, payable monthly beginning November 24, 2020, and is due on April 24, 2022. The PPP Note may be repaid at any time without penalty.
Under the Payroll Protection Program, the Company will be eligible for loan forgiveness up to the full amount of the PPP Note and any accrued interest. The forgiveness amount will be equal to the amount that the Company spends during the 8-week period beginning April 24, 2020 on payroll costs, payment of rent on any leases in force prior to February15, 2020 and payment on any utility for which service began before February 15, 2020. The maximum amount of loan forgiveness for non-payroll expenses is 25% of the amount of the PPP Note. No assurance is provided that the Company will obtain forgiveness under the PPP Note in whole or in part.
The PPP Note contains customary events of default relating to, among other things, payment defaults, breach of representations and warranties, or provisions of the promissory note. The occurrence of an event of default may result in a claim for the immediate repayment of all amounts outstanding under such PPP Note, collection of all amounts owing from the Company, filing suit and obtaining judgment against the Company.
This summary is qualified in its entirety by reference to the terms of the Loan Agreement and the PPP Note, each of which will be filed as exhibits to the Company's Form 10-Q for the period in which the agreements relating to the Loan Agreement were executed.
