Item 8.01 Other Items.

 

In response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the U.S. Small Business Administration (the “SBA”) is making available low-interest rate loans to qualified small businesses, including under its Paycheck Protection Program (the “PPP”).

 

In order to supplement its cash balance, Soligenix, Inc. (the “Company”) has submitted an application for non-dilutive funding under the PPP as part of the recently enacted Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (“CARES Act”) administered by the SBA. Section 1106 of the CARES Act provides for forgiveness of up to the full principal amount of qualifying loans guaranteed under the PPP. The PPP and loan forgiveness are intended to provide economic relief to small businesses, such as the Company, that are adversely impacted under the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Emergency Declaration (COVID-19 Emergency Declaration) issued by President Trump on March 13, 2020.

 

No assurance can be given that the Company will qualify for and/or receive any loan proceeds from the PPP.
