PPP in M&A: How Paycheck Protection Program Loans Could Affect Your Deal

November 19, 2020
Fox Rothschild LLP

The Small Business Administration recently set rules for dealing with PPP loans in M&A transactions. If either side in a deal has received a PPP loan, the parties must be prepared for increased scrutiny during due diligence, transaction timeline delays and certain valuation implications.

Join us for a webinar on these issues and more, including firsthand perspective from a company that recently completed an acquisition of a PPP loan borrower.

Topics will include:

  • What constitutes a “change of ownership” of a PPP borrower and when (and if) SBA approval is needed
  • What lenders must submit if prior approval by the SBA is required
  • PPP borrower liability
  • The effect of an escrow for the amount of a PPP loan
  • Timeline for obtaining SBA approval
  • Considerations for whether the PPP loan should be repaid or assumed in connection with the closing
