Item 1.01.Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.


The information in Item 2.03 below is incorporated by reference in this Item 1.01.


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


On May 4, 2020, Ideal Power Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a Loan Agreement and Promissory Note (collectively, the “PPP Loan”) with BBVA USA pursuant to the Paycheck Protection Program (the “PPP”) under the recently enacted Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (“CARES Act”) administered by the U.S. Small Business Administration (the “SBA”). The Company received total proceeds of $91,407 from the unsecured PPP Loan. The PPP Loan is scheduled to mature on May 4, 2022 and has an interest rate of 1.00% and is subject to the terms and conditions applicable to loans administered by the SBA under the CARES Act. The PPP Loan may be prepaid by the Company at any time prior to maturity with no prepayment penalties.


The PPP Loan contains customary events of default relating to, among other things, payment defaults and breaches of representations and warranties. Subject to certain conditions, the PPP Loan may be forgiven in whole or in part by applying for forgiveness pursuant to the CARES Act and the PPP. The amount of loan proceeds eligible for forgiveness is based on a formula based on a number of factors, including the amount of loan proceeds used by the Company during the eight-week period after the loan origination for certain purposes, including payroll costs, rent payments on certain leases and certain qualified utility payments, provided that, among other things, at least 75% of the loan amount is used for eligible payroll costs, the employer maintaining or rehiring employees and maintaining salaries at certain level. In accordance with the requirements of the CARES Act and the PPP, the Company intends to use the proceeds from the PPP Loan primarily for payroll costs. It is the Company’s expectation that the PPP Loan will be forgiven but no assurance can be given that the Company will be granted forgiveness of the PPP Loan in whole or in part.


The foregoing description of the PPP Loan is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Loan Agreement filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K, which is incorporated herein by reference.
