INFORMATION TO BE INCLUDED IN THE REPORT
Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On June 16, 2020, Black Ridge Oil & Gas, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a loan authorization and loan agreement with the United States Small Business Administration (the “SBA”), as lender, pursuant to the SBA’s Economic Injury Disaster Loan (“EIDL”) assistance program in light of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the Company’s business (the “EIDL Loan Agreement”) encompassing a $150,000 Promissory Note issued to the SBA (the “EIDL Note”)(together with the EIDL Loan Agreement, the “EIDL Loan”).
The proceeds of the EIDL Loan will be used by the Company as working capital to alleviate economic injury caused by COVID-19. In connection with entering into the EIDL Loan, the Company also executed a security agreement, dated June 16, 2020, between the SBA and the Company (the “EIDL Security Agreement”) pursuant to which the EIDL Loan is secured by a security interest on all of the Company’s assets. Under the EIDL Note, the Company is required to pay principal and interest payments of $731.00 every month beginning June 16, 2021. All remaining principal and accrued interest is due and payable on June 16, 2050. The EIDL Note may be repaid at any time without penalty.
The EIDL 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 EIDL 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 EIDL Loan Agreement, the EIDL Note and the EIDL Security Agreement, 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 EIDL Loan were executed.
