Item 2.03. 
Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant.
On April 22, 2020, Insignia Systems, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a promissory note (the “Note”) with Alerus Financial, N.A.. The Note evidences a loan to the Company in the amount of $1,054,200 pursuant to the Paycheck Protection Program (the “PPP”) of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (the “CARES Act”) administered by the U.S. Small Business Administration (the “SBA”).
In accordance with the requirements of the CARES Act, the Company expects to use the proceeds from the loan exclusively for qualified expenses under the PPP, including payroll costs, rent and utility costs, as further detailed in the CARES Act and applicable guidance issued by the SBA. Interest will accrue on the outstanding balance of the Note at a rate of 1.00% per annum. However, the Company expects to apply for forgiveness of up to all amounts due under the Note, in an amount equal to the sum of qualified expenses under the PPP during the eight weeks following disbursement. Notwithstanding the Company’s eligibility to apply for forgiveness, no assurance can be given that the Company will obtain forgiveness of all or any portion of amounts due under the Note.
Subject to any forgiveness granted under the PPP, the Note is scheduled to mature on April 22, 2022 and requires 18 equal monthly payments of principal and interest beginning November 22, 2020. The Note may be prepaid at any time prior to maturity with no prepayment penalties. The Note provides for customary events of default, including, among others, those relating to failure to make payments, bankruptcy, breaches of representations, significant changes in ownership, and material adverse effects. The Company’s obligations under the Note are not secured by any collateral.
The foregoing description of the Note is qualified by reference to the complete text of the Note, which is provided as Exhibit 10.1 to this report and incorporated herein by reference.
