On April 24, 2020, Conifer Holdings, Inc. (the “Company”) received a $2,744,667 loan from The Huntington National Bank (the “Lender”) pursuant to the Paycheck Protection Program of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (the “CARES Act”) administered by the U.S. Small Business Administration (“SBA”). The loan matures on April 24, 2022 and bears interest at a rate of 1.0% per annum. Principal and interest payments are deferred until November 24, 2020, at which point the Company is required to pay the Lender equal monthly payments of principal and interest as necessary to fully amortize by April 24, 2022. The loan may be prepaid by the Company at any time prior to maturity with no prepayment penalties.
The Company intends to use the entire loan amount for qualifying expenses as described in the CARES Act which may allow significant portions of the loan to be forgiven under the CARES Act. The Company amended its $10.0 million line of credit facility with the Lender to incorporate this loan as a reduction of the available line of credit.
