October 2020 –Martin LLP is pleased to announce that we have advised a national banking institution as agent and lender in the closing of a $3.5M senior secured credit facility under the Main Street Lending Program, proceeds to refinance existing debt and fund working capital at a Texas-based event center business.
The Main Street Lending Program is a $600 billion Federal Reserve relief program for small and mid-sized businesses affected by COVID-19 pandemic. MSLP loans generally range in size from $250K to $50M, have 5-year maturities, defer principal payments for two years and interest payments for one year, can be prepaid at any time without penalty, and are priced at LIBOR + 300bps. All other loan terms are based on the borrower’s credit quality and subject to negotiation with the MSLP lender. Loan proceeds can be used for a variety of purposes including to repay existing debt (owed to lenders other than the MSLP lender). The Program is currently set to expire on December 31, 2020.
