Acquiring Companies with Outstanding PPP Loans
Tuesday, October 20, 2020
The enactment of the Paycheck Protection Program under the CARES Act provided relief to many U.S. small businesses. However, the regulations, guidance and administration of the PPP have often times created confusion and uncertainty. With M&A activity accelerating in the second half of the year, businesses with PPP loans face complications when considering whether to acquire or be acquired. In this timely session, we will explore the key M&A issues to be considered when acquiring a business with a PPP Loan, which include due diligence best practices, indemnification provisions, recommended covenants, and the impact the most recent SBA guidance on this topic has on the evolving M&A landscape. Please join us to learn about this issues and more.
