Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
 
On April 22, 2020, Obalon Therapeutics, Inc. (the “Company”) executed a promissory note (the “Note”) in favor of Silicon Valley Bank (the “Lender”) evidencing an unsecured loan in the aggregate principal amount of $430,047 (the “PPP Loan”), which was made pursuant to the Paycheck Protection Program (the “PPP”). The PPP was established under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (“CARES Act”), which was enacted on March 27, 2020, and is administered by the U.S. Small Business Administration (“SBA”). All the funds under the PPP Loan were disbursed to the Company on April 23, 2020.
 
The Note provides for a fixed interest rate of one percent per year with a maturity date of April 22, 2022 (the “Maturity Date”). Monthly principal and interest payments due on the PPP Loan are deferred for a six-month period beginning from the date of disbursement of the PPP Loan. The PPP Loan may be prepaid by the Company at any time prior to the Maturity Date with no prepayment penalties or premiums. The Note contains customary event of default provisions.
 
Under the terms of the CARES Act, PPP loan recipients can apply for and be granted forgiveness for all or a portion of the loans granted under the PPP. Such forgiveness will be subject to approval by the SBA and the Lender and determined, subject to limitations, based on factors set forth in the CARES Act, including verification of the use of loan proceeds for payment of payroll costs and payments of mortgage interest, rent and utilities. In the event the PPP Loan, or any portion thereof, is forgiven, the amount forgiven is applied to outstanding principal. The terms of any forgiveness may also be subject to further regulations and guidelines that the SBA may adopt. The Company will carefully monitor all qualifying expenses and other requirements necessary to attain loan forgiveness; however, no assurance is provided that the Company will obtain forgiveness of the PPP Loan in whole or in part.

The Company intends to use all proceeds from the PPP Loan to retain employees, maintain payroll and make lease and utility payments.

The foregoing description of the Note does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Note attached to this Form 8-K as Exhibit 10.1 and incorporated herein by reference.

 
Item 2.03 Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of the Registrant.

The disclosure in Item 1.01 and Exhibit 10.1 of this report are incorporated in this Item 2.03 by reference.
