The SBA Lender must ensure that the Agent performing services is not debarred, suspended, proposed for debarment, declared ineligible, or voluntarily excluded from participation in this transaction by any Federal department or Agency. (See www.sam.gov.) The SBA does not allow contingency fees (fees paid only if the loan is approved) or charges for services which are not reasonably necessary in connection with an application. A separate form is required for each Agent (including an SBA Lender when the SBA Lender performs packaging services) that has or will receive compensation as part of the transaction. However, all of the services provided by the same Agent may be listed on a single form.

If the compensation paid exceeds $2,500, the Agent must provide supporting documents that include: 1) a detailed explanation of the work performed; and 2) the hourly rate(s) and the number of hours spent working on each activity. The SBA Lender must ensure that the supporting documents are attached to this form. When a single provider charges an Applicant in connection with multiple applications, fees are aggregated to establish the $2,500 threshold for requiring supporting documents and a detailed explanation. Supporting documents and a detailed explanation are required even if the compensation is charged on a percentage basis.

All SBA Lenders must retain the original Form 159 in the loan file. 7(a) Lenders must submit a copy of each completed Form 159 to Fiscal Transfer Agent only once after there has been an initial disbursement on the loan in conjunction with its monthly 1502 report. CDCs must submit a copy of each completed Form 159 to SBA in its Annual Report for all of the 504 loans closed during the fiscal year being reported.

BORROWER'S CERTIFICATION

In order to induce NEWTON FEDERAL BANK (“Lender”) to make a U. S. Small Business Administration (“SBA”) guaranteed Loan, SBA Paycheck Protection Program Loan Number 88591374-00_____ (“Loan”) to
Key Resources Inc.___________________________ (“Borrower”), the undersigned has executed this Borrower’s Certification effective as of the date (the “Effective Date”) of that certain Promissory Note (the “Note”) executed by Borrower made payable to the order of Lender, which Note evidences the Loan. This Certification, the Note, the Application (as defined herein), and the other documents and agreements evidencing or supporting the Loan and executed by Borrower, and any amendments thereto, may be referred to as the “Loan Documents.

A.

Borrower certifies that:

 

1.

The Loan and the Note arise out of that certain Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (P.L. 116-136 (the “CARES Act”) and the Paycheck Protection Program administered by the U.S. Small Business Administration (the “SBA”) under the SBA’s 7(a) loan program as amended by the CARES Act (the “PPP”). The CARES Act and the PPP, together with other federal statutes, regulations and SBA requirements that are now, or may become, applicable to the Loan, may be referred to as the “Regulations.”

 

2.

The terms of the Paycheck Protection Program Borrower Application Form (SBA Form 2483) completed and executed by the Borrower (the “Application”) are incorporated herein for all purposes.

 

3.

It is the express intention of Borrower and Lender that the Loan and Note at all times conform to the terms, conditions and requirements of the CARES Act and PPP.

 

4.

At least seventy-five percent (75%) of the proceeds of this Loan will be used for “payroll costs” (as defined in the CARES Act and subsequent guidelines).

 

5.

Neither Borrower (if an individual) nor any individual owning twenty percent (20%) or more of the equity of Borrower is subject to an indictment, criminal information, arraignment, or other means by which formal criminal charges are brought in any jurisdiction, or is presently incarcerated, or on probation or parole.

 

6.

Neither Borrower (if an individual) nor any individual owning twenty percent (20%) or more of the equity of Borrower has within the last 5 years, for any felony: (i) been convicted, (ii) pleaded guilty, (iii) pleaded nolo contendere, (iv) been placed on pretrial diversion, or (v) been placed on any form of parole or probation (including probation before judgment).

 

7.

Neither Borrower nor any owner (as defined in the Application) is presently suspended, debarred, proposed for debarment, declared ineligible, voluntarily excluded from participation in this transaction by any federal department or agency, or presently involved in any bankruptcy.

 

8.

Neither Borrower nor any of its owners, nor any business owned or controlled by any of them, ever obtained a direct or guaranteed loan from SBA or any other federal agency that is currently delinquent or has defaulted in the last seven (7) years and caused a loss to the government.

 

9.

The principal place of residence for all employees included in the Borrower’s payroll calculation is the United States.

 

10.

No officer, director, owner of more than 20 percent of the equity, or key employee of Borrower is an officer, director, key employee, or holder of any of Lender’s stock or debt instruments, or an Agent (as defined in 13 C.F.R. § 103.1) involved in the loan process.

 

11.

Borrower has not and is not using an “agent” that would be entitled to fees in accordance with the Regulations.

 

12.

If applicable, Borrower has received or will receive, upon release from the U.S. Department of Treasury and/or the SBA, a copy of the Authorization for this Loan from Lender.

 

13.

Borrower acknowledges that if Borrower defaults on the Loan, SBA may be required to pay Lender under the SBA guarantee, and SBA may then seek recovery on the Loan (to the extent any balance remains after loan forgiveness).

 

14.

Borrower will keep books and records in a manner satisfactory to Lender, furnish financial statements as requested by Lender, and allow Lender and SBA to inspect and audit books, records and papers relating to Borrower’s financial or business condition.

 

15.

16.

Borrower has read the statements on the Application, including the Statements Required by Law and Executive Orders, and Borrower understands them.

 

17.

Borrower is eligible to receive a loan under the rules issued by the SBA implementing the Paycheck Protection Program (the “Paycheck Protection Program Rules”) under Division A, Title I of the CARES Act.

 


DocuSign Envelope ID: 4084C913-CF6B-4A6B-BAE7-354C93272377

 

 

18.

Borrower will comply, whenever applicable, with the civil rights and other limitations in the Application.

 

19.

All Loan proceeds will be used only for business-related purposes as specified in the Application and consistent with the Paycheck Protection Program Rules.

 

20.

To the extent feasible, Borrower will purchase only American-made equipment and products.

 

21.

Borrower is not engaged in any activity that is illegal under federal, state or local law.

 

22.

Any loan received by the Borrower under Section 7(b)(2) of the Small Business Act between January 31, 2020 and April 3, 2020 was for a purpose other than paying payroll costs and other allowable uses for loans under the Paycheck Protection Program.

 

23.

Borrower was in operation on February 15, 2020 and had employees for whom Borrower paid salaries and payroll taxes, on such date.

 

24.

Current economic uncertainty makes the Loan, evidenced by the SBA Note, necessary to support Borrower’s ongoing business operations.

 

25.

All Loan proceeds will be used only to retain workers and maintain payroll or make any of, or any combination of, (i) interest payments on obligations existing on February 15, 2020, (ii) lease payments required by leases existing on February 15, 2020, or (iii) utility payments under service agreements in place on February 15, 2020 as specified in the Paycheck Protection Program Rules. If the Loan funds are knowingly used for unauthorized purposes, the federal government may hold Borrower and owners of Borrower legally liable, such as for charges of fraud.

 

26.

Borrower will provide to Lender documentation that verifies the number of full-time equivalent employees on Borrower’s payroll and the dollar amounts of payroll costs, covered mortgage interest payments, covered rent payments, and covered utilities for the eight (8) week period following this Loan.

 

27.

During the period beginning on February 15, 2020 and ending on December 31, 2020, and at no other time, Borrower has not and will not receive any other loan under the Paycheck Protection Program.

 

28.

All the information Borrower provided in Borrower’s application and the information provided in all supporting documents and forms is true and accurate in all material respects. Knowingly making a false statement to obtain a guaranteed loan from SBA is punishable under the law, including under 18 U.S.C. §§ 1001 and 3571 by imprisonment of not more than five years and/or a fine of up to $250,000; under 15 U.S.C. § 645 by imprisonment for not more than two years and/or a fine of not more than $5,000; and, if submitted to a federally insured institution, under 18 U.S.C. § 1014 by imprisonment of not more than thirty years and/or a fine of not more than $1,000,000.

 

29.

Lender has relied, and will rely, in good faith on the certified calculations and supporting documentation regarding the eligible Loan amount submitted by Borrower. Borrower acknowledges and agrees that Lender can share any tax information that Borrower has provided with SBA’s authorized representatives, including authorized representatives of the SBA Office of the Inspector General, for the purpose of compliance with SBA Loan Program Requirements and all SBA reviews.

 

30.

Borrower agrees and acknowledges that all communications made by Lender relating to the PPP are qualified in their entirety by the text of the PPP, as may be amended and/or supplemented by currently existing or forthcoming regulations, guidance and requirements of the SBA and other governmental agencies.

 

31.

Borrower recognizes and acknowledges that if and to the extent that SBA does not forgive the Loan, then Borrower will owe to Lender the outstanding amount of principal and interest on the Loan.

 

32.

Borrower recognizes and acknowledges that guidance setting forth the conditions precedent to forgiveness has not been finalized, and that as a result forgiveness may be materially more difficult to obtain than currently contemplated.

 

33.

If Borrower is an entity, Borrower certifies it is currently existing, in good standing and duly organized under the laws of the state of its organization, and has the power to own its property and to carry on its business in each jurisdiction in which it operates.

 

34.

Borrower certifies it has full power and authority to execute the Note, to execute and deliver the Note and to incur the obligations provided for in the Note, including the Loan. No consent or approval of members, managers, directors or shareholders, or of any public authority is required as a condition to the validity of the Note, or, if required, any such consent or approval has been obtained.

The Lender must submit the completed form and all supporting documentation to SBA upon request, or, in the event of a loan default, with the Lender’s request for guaranty purchase. Providing this information is required to comply with program requirements; failure to provide it when required may impair the Lender’s ability to collect on the SBA loan guaranty.

Fee Disclosure and Compensation Agreement

OMB Control No. 3245-0201

 

For use with 7(a) and 504 Loan Programs

Expiration Date: 08/31/2021

 

Purpose of this form: The purpose of this form is to identify Agents and the fees and/or compensation paid to Agents by or on behalf of a small business applicant (“Applicant”) for the purpose of obtaining or expediting an application for a loan guaranteed by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). This is a statutory requirement under 15 U.S.C. 642. See 13 CFR Parts 103 and 120 and SBA’s Standard Operating Procedure 50 10 for the rules governing compensation of Agents or SBA Lenders in connection with an SBA loan.

 

Who must complete this form?: This form must be completed and signed by the SBA Lender and the Applicant whenever an Agent is paid by either the Applicant or the SBA Lender in connection with the SBA loan application. Each Agent paid by the Applicant to assist it in connection with its application must also complete and sign the form. When an Agent is paid by the SBA Lender, the SBA Lender must complete this form and the SBA Lender and Applicant must both sign the form. The SBA Lender must inform the Applicant in writing that the Applicant is not required to employ an Agent or representative (including the SBA Lender) to assist the Applicant with the SBA loan application.

 

Compensation must be disclosed on this form for the following services:

 

 

1.

Loan packaging services, as defined in SOP 50 10, performed by an SBA Lender or other third party (This includes services performed by an individual/entity that is a Lender Service Provider (LSP) (7(a) only) or has an SBA-approved Professional Services Contract (504 only) with the SBA Lender who is acting as a loan packager or referral agent employed by the Applicant);

 

2.

Financial statement preparation specifically for the loan application; and/or

 

3.

Consulting, Broker, or Referral services paid by the Applicant, SBA Lender, or Third Party Lender (504 only).

 

Fees paid to the following individuals for their services in connection with the SBA loan application are not required to be

disclosed on this form:

 

1.

Applicant’s accountant performing services in the normal course of business;

2.

Any attorney in connection with the 7(a) or 504 loan closing;

3.

A state-certified or state-licensed appraiser employed by the SBA Lender to appraise collateral;

4.

An LSP performing services for the Lender under an SBA-reviewed LSP agreement (7(a) only) or an individual performing services for the CDC under an SBA-approved professional services contract (504 only);

5.

An individual employed by the SBA Lender to perform a business valuation in connection with the SBA loan;

6.

An environmental professional employed by the SBA Lender to conduct an environmental assessment of the collateral; and/or

7.

A real estate agent who is receiving a commission for the sale of real estate.

 

Instructions for completing this form: The Agent must be identified, all services provided must be listed, and the party paying the fee and amount paid must also be disclosed (and itemized, when required). The SBA Lender must ensure that the Agent performing services is not debarred, suspended, proposed for debarment, declared ineligible, or voluntarily excluded from participation in this transaction by any Federal department or Agency. (See www.sam.gov.) The SBA does not allow contingency fees (fees paid only if the loan is approved) or charges for services which are not reasonably necessary in connection with an application. A separate form is required for each Agent (including an SBA Lender when the SBA Lender performs packaging services) that has or will receive compensation as part of the transaction. However, all of the services provided by the same Agent may be listed on a single form.

 

If the compensation paid exceeds $2,500, the Agent must provide supporting documents that include: 1) a detailed explanation of the work performed; and 2) the hourly rate(s) and the number of hours spent working on each activity. The SBA Lender must ensure that the supporting documents are attached to this form. When a single provider charges an Applicant in connection with multiple applications, fees are aggregated to establish the $2,500 threshold for requiring supporting documents and a detailed explanation. Supporting documents and a detailed explanation are required even if the compensation is charged on a percentage basis.

 

All SBA Lenders must retain the original Form 159 in the loan file. 7(a) Lenders must submit a copy of each completed Form 159 to Fiscal Transfer Agent only once after there has been an initial disbursement on the loan in conjunction with its monthly 1502 report. CDCs must submit a copy of each completed Form 159 to SBA in its Annual Report for all of the 504 loans closed during the fiscal year being reported.

5.

Neither Borrower (if an individual) nor any individual owning twenty percent (20%) or more of the equity of Borrower is subject to an indictment, criminal information, arraignment, or other means by which formal criminal charges are brought in any jurisdiction, or is presently incarcerated, or on probation or parole.

The principal place of residence for all employees included in the Borrower’s payroll calculation is the United States.

22.

Any loan received by the Borrower under Section 7(b)(2) of the Small Business Act between January 31, 2020 and April 3, 2020 was for a purpose other than paying payroll costs and other allowable uses for loans under the Paycheck Protection Program.

 

23.

Borrower was in operation on February 15, 2020 and had employees for whom Borrower paid salaries and payroll taxes, on such date.

If the Loan funds are knowingly used for unauthorized purposes, the federal government may hold Borrower and owners of Borrower legally liable, such as for charges of fraud.

 

26.

Borrower will provide to Lender documentation that verifies the number of full-time equivalent employees on Borrower’s payroll and the dollar amounts of payroll costs, covered mortgage interest payments, covered rent payments, and covered utilities for the eight (8) week period following this Loan.

 

27.

During the period beginning on February 15, 2020 and ending on December 31, 2020, and at no other time, Borrower has not and will not receive any other loan under the Paycheck Protection Program.

 

28.

All the information Borrower provided in Borrower’s application and the information provided in all supporting documents and forms is true and accurate in all material respects. Knowingly making a false statement to obtain a guaranteed loan from SBA is punishable under the law, including under 18 U.S.C. §§ 1001 and 3571 by imprisonment of not more than five years and/or a fine of up to $250,000; under 15 U.S.C. § 645 by imprisonment for not more than two years and/or a fine of not more than $5,000; and, if submitted to a federally insured institution, under 18 U.S.C. § 1014 by imprisonment of not more than thirty years and/or a fine of not more than $1,000,000.

 

28.

Lender has relied, and will rely, in good faith on the certified calculations and supporting documentation regarding the eligible Loan amount submitted by Borrower. Borrower acknowledges and agrees that Lender can share any tax information that Borrower has provided with SBA’s authorized representatives, including authorized representatives of the SBA Office of the Inspector General, for the purpose of compliance with SBA Loan Program Requirements and all SBA reviews.

 

29.

Borrower agrees and acknowledges that all communications made by Lender relating to the PPP are qualified in their entirety by the text of the PPP, as may be amended and/or supplemented by currently existing or forthcoming regulations, guidance and requirements of the SBA and other governmental agencies.

 

30.

Borrower recognizes and acknowledges that if and to the extent that SBA does not forgive the Loan, then Borrower will owe to Lender the outstanding amount of principal and interest on the Loan.

 

31.

Borrower recognizes and acknowledges that guidance setting forth the conditions precedent to forgiveness has not been finalized, and that as a result forgiveness may be materially more difficult to obtain than currently contemplated.

 

32.

If Borrower is an entity, Borrower certifies it is currently existing, in good standing and duly organized under the laws of the state of its organization, and has the power to own its property and to carry on its business in each jurisdiction in which it operates.

 

33.

Borrower certifies it has full power and authority to execute the Note, to execute and deliver the Note and to incur the obligations provided for in the Note, including the Loan.

This form is to be completed by the Lender and signed by the Lender and the Borrower at the time of the initial loan disbursement. The Lender must retain a copy of the signed form in its loan file. For all disbursements, the Lender must also retain documentation that is acceptable to SBA (such as joint payee checks, cancelled checks, paid receipts or invoices, wire transfer account records, etc.) and that evidences compliance with the Use of Proceeds section of the Authorization.

The Lender must submit the completed form and all supporting documentation to SBA upon request, or, in the event of a loan default, with the Lender’s request for guaranty purchase.

Providing this information is required to comply with program requirements; failure to provide it when required may impair the Lender’s ability to collect on the SBA loan guaranty.
