Forward Looking Statements


Statements made in this Form 8-K that are not historical or current facts are “forward-looking statements” made pursuant to the safe harbor provisions of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”) and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). These statements often can be identified by the use of terms such as “may,” “will,” “expect,” “believe,” “anticipate,” “estimate,” “approximate” or “continue,” or the negative thereof. We intend that such forward-looking statements be subject to the safe harbors for such statements. We wish to caution readers not to place undue reliance on any such forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date made. Any forward-looking statements represent management’s best judgment as to what may occur in the future. However, forward-looking statements are subject to risks, uncertainties and important factors beyond our control that could cause actual results and events to differ materially from historical results of operations and events and those presently anticipated or projected. Among the factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those described or projected herein are the following: financial market conditions; actions by the Loan parties; changes by the SBA or other governmental authorities regarding the CARES Act, the Payroll Protection Program or related administrative matters; and the Company’s and Borrower’s ability to comply with the terms of the Loan and the CARES Act, including to use the proceeds of the Loan as described herein. We disclaim any obligation subsequently to revise any forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances after the date of such statement or to reflect the occurrence of anticipated or unanticipated events. Given these uncertainties, you should not place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements and should consider various factors, including the risks described, among other places, in our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K and in our Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q, as well as any amendments thereto, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.


Item 1.01 Entry Into a Material Definitive Agreement


On April 8, 2020, ShypDirect, LLC (“Borrower”), a wholly owned subsidiary of Transportation and Logistics Systems, Inc. (the “Company”), applied to M&T Bank (“Lender”) under the Small Business Administration (the “SBA”) Paycheck Protection Program of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act of 2020 (the “CARES Act”) for a loan of $504,940 (the “Loan”). On April 28, 2020, the Loan was approved and Borrower received the Loan proceeds on May 1, 2020, which Borrower plans to use for covered payroll costs, rent and utilities in accordance with the relevant terms and conditions of the CARES Act.


The Loan, which took the form of a promissory note issued by Borrower (the “Promissory Note”), has a two-year term, matures on April 28, 2022, and bears interest at a rate of 1.00% per annum. Monthly principal and interest payments, less the amount of any potential forgiveness (discussed below), will commence on November 28, 2020. Borrower did not provide any collateral or guarantees for the Loan, nor did Borrower pay any facility charge to obtain the Loan. The Promissory Note provides for customary events of default, including, among others, those relating to failure to make payment, bankruptcy, breaches of representations and material adverse effects. Borrower may prepay the principal of the Loan at any time without incurring any prepayment charges.


The Loan may be forgiven partially or fully if the Loan proceeds are used for covered payroll costs, rent and utilities, provided that such amounts are incurred during the eight-week period that commenced on May 1, 2020 and at least 75% of any forgiven amount has been used for covered payroll costs. Any forgiveness of the Loan will be subject to approval by the SBA and Lender and will require Borrower to apply for such treatment in the future.


A copy of the Promissory Note is attached as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K. The above descriptions are qualified by reference to the complete text of the Promissory Note, provided that any representations and warranties contained in the Promissory Note are not intended for investors and the public to obtain factual information about the Borrower or the Company. Rather, investors and the public should look to disclosures contained in the Company’s reports under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.


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


The disclosure in Item 1.01 of this report is incorporated into this Item 2.03 by reference.
