Item 1.01    Entry into a Definitive Material Agreement.

On April 25, 2020, Pixelworks, Inc. (the “Company”), entered into a loan with Silicon Valley Bank as the lender (“Lender”) in an aggregate principal amount of $796,242 (the “Loan”) pursuant to the Paycheck Protection Program (the “PPP”) under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (the “CARES Act”).

The Loan is evidenced by a promissory note (the “Note”) dated April 25, 2020, and matures 2 years from the disbursement date. The Note bears interest at a rate of 1.000% per annum, with the first six months of interest deferred. Principal and interest are payable monthly commencing 6 months after the disbursement date and may be prepaid by the Company at any time prior to maturity with no prepayment penalties. The Note contains customary events of default relating to, among other things, payment defaults or breaches of the terms of the Note. Upon the occurrence of an event of default, the Lender may require immediate repayment of all amounts outstanding under the Note.

Under the terms of the CARES Act, PPP loan recipients can apply for and be granted forgiveness for all or a portion of loans granted under the PPP. The Loan is subject to forgiveness to the extent proceeds are used for payroll costs, including payments required to continue group health care benefits, and certain rent, utility, and mortgage interest expenses (collectively, “Qualifying Expenses”), pursuant to the terms and limitations of the PPP. The Company intends to use the Loan amount for Qualifying Expenses. However, no assurance is provided that the Company will obtain forgiveness of the Loan in whole or in part. 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, which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.
