During the year ended September 30, 2020, the Company issued unsecured notes payable to various related parties resulting in cash proceeds of $0.1 million. These notes are payable on demand and payments of $20,436 and $0.1 million were made during the years ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively. The interest on these notes was de minimis during each of those years.

PPP Loan


On March 27, 2020, the U.S. Federal government enacted the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (“CARES Act”). The CARES Act includes a provision for a Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”) administered by the U.S. Small Business Administration (“SBA”) and further amended by the Paycheck Protection Program Flexibility Act of 2020 (“PPP Flexibility Act”), which was enacted on June 5, 2020.


In May 2020, the Company received a PPP Loan of $0.1 million. The application for these funds required the Company to certify in good faith that current economic uncertainty made the loan request necessary to support the ongoing operations of the Company. The Company was also required to certify that the loan funds would be used to retain workers and maintain payroll or make mortgage payments, lease payments, and utility payments. The PPP Loan had a two-year term and bore interest at a rate of 1.0% per year.


Under the terms of the CARES Act, the Company could apply for and be granted forgiveness for all or a portion of the PPP Loan. Such forgiveness, if any, would be determined, subject to limitations, based on the use of loan proceeds for payroll costs, rent and utility costs and provided that only a portion of the use of proceeds are for non-payroll costs. The unforgiven portion of the PPP Loan could be repaid by the Company at any time prior to maturity with no prepayment penalty. The Company’s PPP Loan and the related interest were forgiven in full in June 2021, which is included in other income within the Company’s consolidated statement of operations.
