7. LOANS PAYABLE
The Company’s loans payable are summarized below:
On March 1, 2020, the Company received a loan in the amount of $27,641 (ARS $1,777,778) (the” 2020 Demand Loan”) which bears interest at 10% per month and is due upon demand of the lender (the “Demand Loan”). Interest is paid monthly.
During the six months ended June 30, 2020, the Company made principal payments on loans payable in the aggregate of $102,756, of which $7,940 was paid on the 2020 Demand Loan, $5,906 was paid on the 2018 Demand Loan, $42,246 was paid on the 2018 Loan, $37,664 was paid on the 2017 Loan and $9,000 was paid on the Land Loan. The remaining decrease in principal balances are the result of the impact of the change in exchange rates during the period.
The Company incurred interest expense related to the loans payable in the amount of $16,087 and $38,707 during the three and six months ended June 30, 2020, respectively, of which $3,777 and $7,102, respectively represented amortization of debt discount, and incurred interest expense of $32,006 and $72,828 during the three and six months ended June 30, 2019, respectively, of which $8,241 and $14,736, respectively represented amortization of debt discount.
On May 6, 2020, the Company entered into a potentially forgivable loan from the U.S. Small Business Administration (“SBA”) pursuant to the Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”) enacted by Congress under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (15 U.S.C. 636(a)(36)) (the “CARES Act”), resulting in net proceeds of $242,487 (the “PPP Loan”). To facilitate the PPP Loan, the Company entered into a note payable agreement with Santander Bank, N.A. as the lender.
Under the terms of the CARES Act, as amended by the Paycheck Protection Program Flexibility Act of 2020, the Company is eligible to apply for and receive forgiveness for all or a portion of their respective PPP Loan. Such forgiveness will be determined, subject to limitations, based on the use of the loan proceeds for certain permissible purposes as set forth in the PPP, including, but not limited to, payroll costs (as defined under the PPP) and mortgage interest, rent or utility costs (collectively, “Qualifying Expenses”) incurred during the 24 weeks subsequent to funding, and on the maintenance of employee and compensation levels, as defined, following the funding of the PPP Loan. The Company intends to use the proceeds of the PPP Loan for Qualifying Expenses. However, no assurance is provided that the Company will be able to obtain forgiveness of the PPP Loan in whole or in part. Any amounts that are not forgiven incur interest at 1.0% per annum and monthly repayments of principal and interest are deferred for six months after the date of disbursement. While the PPP Loan currently has a two-year maturity, the amended law permits the borrower to request a five-year maturity from its lender.
SBA Economic Injury Disaster Loans
On May 22, 2020, the Company received a loan in the principal amount of $94,000 (the “EIDL Loan”) pursuant to the Economic Injury Disaster Loan (“EIDL”) assistance program offered by the SBA in response to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the Company’s business. The EIDL Loan bears interest at 3.75% per annum and matures on May 22, 2050. Proceeds from the EIDL are being used for working capital purposes. Monthly installment payments of $459, including principal and interest, are due monthly beginning May 22, 2021. The EIDL Loan is secured by a security interest in all of the Company’s assets.
