Priority

At origination and as long as a NLF loan is outstanding, it cannot be contractually subordinated to any of Borrower’s other loans. At origination and as long as the PLF loan is outstanding, it must be senior to or pari passu with all other debt of Borrower (other than mortgage debt). At upsizing and as long as the ELF upsized tranche is outstanding, it must be senior to or pari passu with all other debt of Borrower
(other than mortgage debt).

Priority (cont.)

Borrowers with existing debt (either secured or unsecured) are not prevented from obtaining a subsequent NLF loan, but existing lenders cannot require contractual subordination of the NLF loan. Borrowers with existing debt (other than mortgage debt) will be required to make such existing debt subordinate to or on equal footing with the PLF loan.
It is unclear in the regulations whether subsequent mortgages may also take priority over a PLF loan similar to existing mortgages.
Borrowers with existing debt (other than mortgage debt) will be required to make such existing debt subordinate to or on equal footing with the ELF upsized tranche. As with the PLF, the priority treatment of subsequent mortgages is unclear.

Transaction Fee

Lender will pay the SPV 100 basis points of the principal amount of the loan (which the lender may pass through to the Borrower). Lender will pay the SPV 75 basis points of the principal amount of the upsized tranche (which the lender may pass through to the Borrower).

Origination Fee

Borrower will pay the lender up to 100 basis points of the principal amount of the loan. Borrower will pay the lender up to 75 basis points of the principal amount of the upsized tranche.

Restrictions on Repayment of Other Debt

Borrower must refrain from using loan proceeds to repay any other of Borrower’s existing loans, unless a payment is mandatory and due. Borrower must refrain from using proceeds of eligible loans to repay any other loans, unless a payment is mandatory and due, but may, at the time of origination, refinance existing debt owed to another lender (i.e. not the lender making the Preferred Loan Facility loan). Borrower must refrain from using loan proceeds to repay any other of Borrower’s existing loans, unless a payment is mandatory and due.

Restrictions on Existing Lines of Credit

Borrower must commit not to seek to cancel or reduce any committed lines of credit.

Prepayment Penalty

None

Employee Retention

While the loan (or upsized tranche) is outstanding, Borrower should make commercially reasonable efforts to maintain payroll and retain its employees, in light of its capacities, the economic environment, its available resources, and the business need for labor. Borrowers that have already laid-off or furloughed workers as a result of the disruptions from COVID-19 are still eligible to apply for Main Street loans.

Loan Forgiveness

None
