Item 1.01Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement


On April 23, 2020, Precipio, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a promissory note (the “Promissory Note”) evidencing an unsecured $787,200 loan under the Paycheck Protection Program (the “PPP Loan”). The Paycheck Protection Program (or “PPP”) was established under the recently congressionally-approved Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (the “CARES Act”) and is administered by the U.S. Small Business Administration. The PPP Loan to the Company is being made through Webster Bank N.A.


The term of the PPP Loan is two years. The interest rate on the PPP Loan is 1.00%, which shall be deferred for the first six months of the term of the loan. Under the terms of the CARES Act, PPP Loan recipients can apply for and be granted forgiveness for all or a portion of loans granted under the PPP. Such forgiveness will be determined, subject to limitations, based on the use of loan proceeds for payroll costs and mortgage interest, rent or utility costs and the maintenance of employee and compensation levels. The Company intends to use all or a significant majority of the PPP Loan amount for qualifying expenses but no assurance is provided that the Company will obtain forgiveness of the PPP Loan in whole or in part.


The Promissory Note contains customary events of default relating to, among other things, payment defaults, breach of representations and warranties, or provisions of the Promissory Note. The occurrence of an event of default may result in the repayment of all amounts outstanding, collection of all amounts owing from the Company, and/or filing suit and obtaining judgment against the Company.


The foregoing descriptions of the Promissory Note do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the full text of the Promissory Note attached to this Form 8-K as Exhibit 10.1 and incorporated herein by reference.
