BRENTWOOD, Tenn., Dec. 04, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- IMAC Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: IMAC) (“IMAC” or the “Company”), a provider of innovative medical advancements and care specializing in regenerative rehabilitation orthopedic treatments without the use of surgery or opioids, today announces the United States Small Business Administration (the “SBA”) has confirmed a complete waiver of a $1.69 million Payroll Protection Plan (“PPP”) promissory note issued by IMAC earlier this year. In the spring of 2020, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic IMAC was forced to temporarily close three clinics under governor’s orders and furlough or terminate 27% of its workforce. With the assistance of the PPP loan, as of September 30, 2020, 98% of IMAC’s full and part-time workforce returned to work for IMAC.
As stipulated by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (“CARES”) Act, the Company complied with using the PPP funds for payroll costs, costs used to continue group health care benefits, mortgage payments, rent utilities, and interest on other debt obligations. As a result, IMAC submitted a loan forgiveness application, which the SBA approved.
“IMAC judiciously applied the capital granted by the CARES Act according to its terms and conditions and our operations have continued with our experienced team of medical professionals in place,” said Jeffrey Ervin, Chief Executive Officer of IMAC. “The PPP forgiveness will result in a $1.69 million decrease of debt from the September 30 balance sheet, with $1 million of that balance classified as a current liability.”
