Item 1.01    Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.


On April 16, 2020, CalAmp Corp. (the “Company”) received proceeds from a loan in the amount of $10 million (the “PPP Loan”) from JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., (“JPMorgan”) as lender, pursuant to the Paycheck Protection Program (the “PPP”) of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (the “CARES Act”). The PPP Loan matures on April 15, 2022 (the “Maturity Date”) and bears interest at a rate of 0.98% per annum. For a period of six months (the “Deferral Period”) beginning on the date of the PPP Loan, all principal and interest shall be deferred. Commencing one month after the expiration of the Deferral Period, the Company is required to pay the lender equal monthly payments of principal and interest through the Maturity Date or the date on which the entire outstanding principal and interest is paid in full. The PPP Loan is evidenced by a promissory note dated April 15, 2020, which contains customary events of default relating to, among other things, payment defaults and breaches of representations and warranties. The PPP Loan may be prepaid by the Company at any time prior to the Maturity Date with no prepayment penalties.


Under the terms of the CARES Act, PPP loan recipients can apply for forgiveness for all or a portion of a loan granted under the PPP. Such forgiveness will be subject to approval by the Small Business Administration (“SBA”) and JPMorgan and determined, subject to limitations, on factors set forth in the CARES Act including verification of the use of loan proceeds for payment of payroll costs and payments of mortgage interest, rent, and utilities. In the event the PPP Loan, or any portion thereof, is forgiven,  then the amount forgiven would be applied to outstanding principal. However, no assurance is provided that the Company will obtain forgiveness of the PPP Loan in whole or in part. The Company intends to use all proceeds from the PPP Loan to retain employees, maintain payroll and make lease and utility payments.


The foregoing description of the promissory note does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the promissory note attached to this Form 8-K as Exhibit 10.1 and incorporated herein by reference.



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