Item 1.01

Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.


On May 1, 2020, Tel-Instruments Electronics Corp (the “Company”) entered into an unsecured promissory note (the “Note”) with Bank of the America, NA, which provides for a loan in the amount of $722,577 (the “Loan”) pursuant to the Paycheck Protection Program (the “PPP”) under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (the “CARES Act”). The Loan has a two-year term and bears interest at a rate of 1.0% per annum. Monthly principal and interest payments are deferred for six months after the date of disbursement. The Loan may be prepaid at any time prior to maturity with no prepayment penalties.


The Note contains customary events of default relating to, among other things, payment defaults, making materially false and misleading representations to the Small Business Administration or to lender, or breaching the terms of the Loan documents. The occurrence of an event of default may result in the repayment of all amounts outstanding, collection of all amounts owing from the Company, or filing suit and obtaining judgment against the Company.


Under the terms of the CARES Act, PPP loan recipients can apply for and be granted forgiveness for all or a portion of loan granted under the PPP. Such forgiveness will be determined, subject to limitations, based on the use of loan proceeds for payment of payroll costs and any payments of mortgage interest, rent, and utilities. The amount of loan forgiveness will be reduced if the Company terminates employees or reduces salaries during the eight-week period after the date of receipt of funds, May 3, 2020. The Company intends to use the entire Loan amount for qualifying expenses and to apply for forgiveness of the Loan in accordance with the terms of the CARES Act; however, no assurance can be provided that forgiveness for any portion of the Loan will be obtained.


Item 1.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K contains only a brief description of the material terms of the Note and does not purport to be a complete description of the rights and obligations of the parties thereunder, and such description is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Note, which is attached as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K, and is incorporated herein by reference.


Item 2.03

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