Item 1.01.

Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.


On April 23, 2020, Marin Software Incorporated (the “Company”), entered into a loan agreement with Harvest Small Business Finance, LLC as the lender (“Lender”) for a loan in an aggregate principal amount of $3,319,600 (the “Loan”) pursuant to the Paycheck Protection Program (the “PPP”) under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. The Loan is evidenced by a Note dated effective as of April 22, 2020 (the “Note”) and matures two years from the date of first disbursement of the Loan. The Loan bears interest at a rate of 1% per annum, with all payments deferred through the six-month anniversary of the date of the Note. Principal and interest are payable monthly commencing on the first day of the next month after the expiration of the initial six-month deferment period and may be prepaid by the Company at any time prior to maturity without penalty. The Company has not yet received any funds pursuant to the Loan and the funding of the Loan is subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions, including that the Lender receives approval from the U.S. Small Business Administration to fund the Loan. Although the Company currently expects that such conditions will be satisfied, there can be no assurances that such conditions will be satisfied or that the Company will receive any funds pursuant to the Loan. If the Company receives the Loan amount, the Company may apply to Lender for forgiveness of amounts due under the Loan, with the amount of potential loan forgiveness to be calculated in accordance with the requirements of the PPP based on payroll costs, any mortgage interest payments, any covered rent payments and any covered utilities payments during the 8-week period beginning on the date of first disbursement of the Loan. If the Company receives the Loan amount, the Company intends to use proceeds of the Loan for qualifying expenses, but there can be no assurances that any portion of the Loan will be forgiven.  


The Company will file a copy of the Note as an exhibit to its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2020.
