ITEM  1.01.Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.



On April 23, 2020, SigmaTron International, Inc. (the “Company”) received a loan of $6,282,973 (the “Loan”) under the Small Business Administration Paycheck Protection Program (the “PPP”) under the recently enacted Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (the “CARES Act”).  The unsecured loan is evidenced by the U.S. Bank SBA Payroll Protection Loan agreement with note dated April 23, 2020 (the “Agreement”),  with U.S. Bank National Association (“Lender”), a copy of which is included as Exhibit 10.1 filed herewith and the terms of which are incorporated herein by reference.    Capitalized terms used, but not otherwise defined, herein have the meanings given in the Agreement.  The Lender is also the lender on the Company’s senior secured credit facility and revolving line of credit thereunder.



Under the terms of the Agreement, interest will accrue on the unpaid principal balance at the rate of 1.00% per year.  The note constituting a part of the Agreement has a term of two years, although the first payment thereunder is deferred for the first seven months.  The Agreement also contains loan forgiveness provisions if certain conditions are met, including the use of the loan proceeds for Eligible Expenses, which may result in all or a portion of the principal of the Loan being forgiven and reduced and the Loan being re-amortized following the Deferral Period; however, there is no guaranty that the Company will obtain forgiveness of the Loan in whole or in part.  The note under the Agreement may be prepaid in part or in full, at any time, without penalty.



The Agreement contains customary events of default, including (i) failure to make payments when due, (ii) failure by the Company to perform under the Agreement, (iii) making misrepresentations to the Lender in connection with the Loan, (iv) defaults by the Company to the Lender or with respect to indebtedness in excess of $10,000 owing by the Company to any third party, (v) outstanding unsatisfied judgments against the Company in excess of $10,000, (vi) events leading to an inability of the Company to perform its obligations under the Agreement, bankruptcy or insolvency of the Company or other similar events, and (vii) material adverse changes in the Company’s business.



The foregoing is qualified entirely by reference to the full text of the Agreement.  The foregoing is a summary of, and should not be relied upon in lieu of a review of, the Agreement, the terms of which shall control in the event of any inconsistency between the information in the foregoing summary and the terms of the Agreement.
