Section 2 - Financial Information


Item 2.03 Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant.


In response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic the U.S. Small Business Administration (the “SBA”) is making available low-interest rate loans to qualified small businesses under its Economic Injury Disaster Loan program (the “EIDL”). Lifted Liquids, Inc. d/b/a Lifted Made (“Lifted”), a wholly owned subsidiary of Acquired Sales Corp. (“AQSP”) has applied for a loan under the EIDL. Lifted also applied for and received a loan (the “Loan”) under the Paycheck Protection Program (the “PPP”) under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (the “CARES Act”), which was enacted March 27, 2020. The Loan was issued by BMO Harris Bank (the “Lender”) in the aggregate principal amount of $149,622.50 and evidenced by a promissory note (the “Note”), dated April 14, 2020 issued by Lifted to the Lender. The Note matures on April 14, 2022. The Note bears interest at a rate of 1.00% per annum, payable monthly commencing on November 14, 2020, following an initial deferral period as specified under the PPP. The Note may be prepaid by Lifted at any time prior to maturity with no prepayment penalties. Proceeds from the Loans will be available to Lifted to fund designated expenses, including certain payroll costs and other permitted expenses, in accordance with the PPP. Under the terms of the PPP, up to the entire amount of principal and accrued interest may be forgiven to the extent the Loan proceeds are used for qualifying expenses as described in the CARES Act and applicable implementing guidance issued by the U.S. Small Business Administration under the PPP. AQSP intends that Lifted would use its entire Loan amount for designated qualifying expenses and to apply for forgiveness of the Loan in accordance with the terms of the PPP. No assurance can be given that Lifted will obtain forgiveness of the Loan in whole or in part.


With respect to any portion of the Loan that is not forgiven, the Loan will be subject to customary provisions for a loan of this type, including customary events of default relating to, among other things, payment defaults, breaches of the provisions of the Note.


As of April 21, 2020, and including the full funding of borrowing under the above referenced PPP Loan, there was cash on hand of $458,394 at Lifted and $413,396 at AQSP, for a total consolidated cash on hand amount of $871,790, $149,622.50 of which stem from the above referenced PPP Loan.
