Item 1.02    Termination of a Material Definitive Agreement.

EMCORE Corporation (“we”, “us” or the “Company”) previously reported in our Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 6, 2020 (the “May 2020 Form 8-K”), that, on May 3, 2020, we entered into a Paycheck Protection Program Promissory Note and Agreement (the “Agreement”) evidencing an unsecured $6,488,157 loan under the Paycheck Protection Program (the “PPP Loan”) made through Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., a national banking association and the Company’s existing lender (the “Lender”). The Paycheck Protection Program (or “PPP”) was established under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (the “CARES Act”) and is administered by the U.S. Small Business Administration.

Under the terms of the CARES Act, PPP loan recipients can apply for, and the SBA can grant forgiveness of, all or a portion of loans made under the PPP if the recipients use the PPP loan proceeds for eligible purposes, including payroll costs, mortgage interest, rent or utility costs and meet other requirements regarding, among other things, the maintenance of employment and compensation levels. We used the PPP Loan proceeds for qualifying expenses and applied for forgiveness of the PPP Loan in accordance with the terms of the CARES Act.

On July 12, 2021, we received a notification from the Lender that the SBA approved our PPP Loan forgiveness application for the entire PPP Loan balance of $6,488,157, including all accrued interest thereon, and that the remaining PPP Loan balance is zero. The forgiveness of the PPP Loan will be recognized during the Company’s fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2021.

The disclosure in Item 1.01 of the May 2020 Form 8-K is incorporated into this Item 1.02 by reference.

Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
