Senate Passes SBA Paycheck Protection Loan Program

March 26, 2020

On Wednesday, March 25, 2020, the Senate passed the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (“CARES” or “CARES Act”) Act, a stimulus bill that includes a loan program to keep small businesses, including certain private equity portfolio companies, afloat during mandated COVID-19-related closures. This new loan program, known as the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), is based on the architecture of the SBA’s existing 7(a) loan program and will make forgivable loans of up to $10 million available to qualifying small businesses. The House of Representatives is expected to vote on the CARES Act on Friday, March 27, 2020. Additional detail will be provided as the SBA drafts implementing regulations, which the CARES Act requires to occur within 15 days. In the meantime, please see below for a brief summary of the main provisions of the CARES Act applicable to PPP loans. For information regarding SBA Economic Injury Disaster Loans, please see our client bulletin here.

Who is eligible for PPP loans?

A business, including a qualifying nonprofit organization, is eligible for PPP loans if it (a) meets the applicable North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) Code-based size standard or other applicable 7(a) loan size standard, both alone and together with its affiliates; or (b) has an employee headcount that is lower than the greater of (i) 500 employees or (ii) the employee size standard, if any, under the applicable NAICS Code. Businesses that fall within NAICS Code 72, which applies to accommodations and food services, are also eligible if they employ no more than 500 people per physical location. Sole proprietorships, independent contractors, and self-employed individuals are also eligible. It is unclear as of what date the size test will be applied, but historically, SBA size tests have been applied on the date of application for financing. More information on the NAICS-Code-based size standards can be found here.

How do affiliates, such as private equity sponsors, affect eligibility for PPP loans

How are PPP loans made?

PPP loans will be made by lenders who are currently approved as 7(a) lenders or who are approved by the SBA and the Treasury Department to become PPP lenders. PPP lenders are delegated authority to make and approve PPP loans, with no additional SBA approval required. PPP lenders are only required to consider whether an applicant was in operation on February 15, 2020, and either had employees for whom it paid salaries and payroll taxes or paid independent contractors. Unlike other 7(a) loans, applicants are not required to show that credit is unavailable elsewhere or demonstrate repayment ability. PPP loans are backed by a 100% guaranty from SBA.

How much can be borrowed in PPP loans?

The CARES Act increases the maximum availability of 7(a) loans, including PPP loans, to $349 billion. The maximum PPP loan available to any business is $10 million or, if less, 2.5 times the average monthly payroll costs of the business over the year prior to the making of the loan (practically, this may become the year prior to the loan application), excluding the prorated portion of any annual compensation above $100,000 for any person. Note that under the CARES Act, “payroll costs” include vacation, parental, family, medical, and sick leave; allowances for dismissal or separation; payments for group health care benefits, including insurance premiums; and retirement benefits. Calculations vary slightly for seasonal businesses and businesses that were not in operation between February 15 and June 30, 2019.

How can PPP loan proceeds be used?

PPP loan proceeds are generally to be used for:

♦ Payroll costs, excluding the prorated portion of any compensation above $100,000 per year for any person
♦ Group healthcare benefit costs and insurance premiums
♦ Mortgage interest (but not prepayments or principal payments) and rent payments
♦ Interest on debt that existed as of February 15, 2020

What are the primary terms of PPP loans?

PPP loans bear interest at a maximum rate of 4% and mature no later than 10 years after determination of the amount, if any, to be forgiven, as described below. Payments under PPP loans and all other 7(a) loans will be deferred for 6–12 months, and the SBA is directed to issue guidance on the terms of this deferral. Unlike other 7(a) loans, PPP loans have no collateral or personal-guarantee requirements. There will be no recourse to owners of borrowers for nonpayment, except to the extent proceeds are used for an unauthorized purpose. For PPP loans, the SBA has waived prepayment penalties and has waived the guaranty fee and annual fee applicable to other 7(a) loans.

Can PPP loans be forgiven?

PPP loans can be forgiven to the extent that the loan proceeds have been used for the following costs incurred and payments made during the eight-week period after the loan is made:

♦ Payroll costs, excluding the prorated portion of any compensation above $100,000 per year for any person
♦ Group healthcare benefit costs and insurance premiums
♦ Mortgage interest (but not prepayments or principal payments) and rent payments on mortgages and leases in existence before February 15, 2020
♦ Certain utilities, including electricity, gas, water, transportation, and phone and Internet access for service that began before February 15, 2020
♦ Additional wages paid to tipped employees

However, the amount forgiven is reduced based on failure to maintain the average number of full-time equivalent employees versus the period from either February 15, 2019, through June 30, 2019, or January 1, 2020, through February 29, 2020, as selected by the borrower. The amount forgiven is also reduced to the extent that compensation for any individual making less than $100,000 per year is reduced by more than 25% measured against the most recent full quarter. Reductions in the number of employees or compensation occurring between February 15, 2020, and 30 days after enactment of the CARES Act will generally be ignored to the extent reversed by June 30, 2020. Forgiven amounts will not constitute cancellation of indebtedness income for federal tax purposes.

Does having a PPP loan subject a business to terms regarding stock buybacks, dividends, employee retention, or other employment terms?

No. The CARES Act imposes restrictions on relief provided by the Treasury Department, but these types of restrictions do not apply to PPP loans.

Can I get a PPP loan if I got an Economic Injury Disaster Loan?

Yes, to the extent that the disaster loan was used for a purpose other than those permitted for PPP Loans. Disaster loans may be refinanced with proceeds of PPP loans, in which case the maximum available PPP loan amount is increased by the amount of disaster loans being refinanced.

If I’m interested in a PPP loan, whom should I call?

We recommend contacting existing 7(a) lenders as soon as possible to learn what you will need to provide for underwriting and approving a PPP loan.
