The recent outbreak of the coronavirus, COVID-19, which on March 10, 2020, has been declared by the World Health Organization to be a pandemic has spread across the globe and is impacting worldwide economic activity. A pandemic, including COVID-19 or other public health epidemic, poses the risk that the Company or its employees, contractors, customers, suppliers, third party shipping carriers, government and other partners may be prevented from or limited in their ability to conduct business activities for an indefinite period of time, including due to the spread of the disease within these groups or due to shutdowns that may be requested or mandated by governmental authorities. While it is not possible at this time to estimate the impact that COVID-19 could have on the Company’s business, the continued spread of COVID-19 and the measures taken by the governments of states and countries affected could disrupt, among other things, the supply chain and the manufacture or shipment of the Company’s products. On March 19, 2020, the governor of California, the state where the Company’s facility is located, issued statewide stay-at-home orders for non-essential workers to help combat the spread of COVID-19. The Company is deemed to be an essential business consistent with announcements by Forklift OEMs and related supply chain, who support the logistics industry, critical to delivering food and supplies during COVID-19 crisis and the Company has instituted processes, policies and workplace procedures in an effort to keep our workers safe while productive. The Company’s manufacturing operations may be subject to closure or shut down due to the spread of the disease within the Company’s production employees, or as part of a larger scale government recommendation or mandate. Any disruption in the Company’s manufacturing operations would have a material adverse effect on the Company’s business and would impede the Company’s ability to manufacture and ship products to its customers in a timely manner, or at all. The effect of the COVID-19 pandemic and its associated restrictions may adversely impact many aspects of the Company’s business, including customer demand, the length of its sales cycles, disruptions in its supply chain, lower the operating efficiencies at its facility, worker shortages and declining staff morale, and other unforeseen disruptions. The demand for the Company’s products may significantly decline as COVID-19 continues to spread and as its customers suffer losses in their businesses. The supply of the Company’s raw materials and its supply chain may be disrupted and adversely impacted by the pandemic. The occurrence of any of the foregoing events and their adverse effect on capital markets and investor sentiment may adversely impact the Company’s ability to raise capital when needed or on terms favorable to it and its stockholders to fund its operations, which could have a material adverse effect on its business, financial condition and results of operations. The extent to which the COVID-19 outbreak impacts the Company’s results, its effect on near or long-term value of its share price will depend on future developments that are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted, including new information that may emerge concerning the severity of the virus and the actions to contain its impact.


In January 2020, we received a $4,680,000 order for additional airport GSE batteries from an existing global airline customer. Due to the COVID-19 crisis and its effect to the airline segment, the customer requested that the order to be reduced to approximately $2,700,000 and be delivered in monthly shipments up to November 2020.

All accrued and unpaid interest as of April 30, 2020 was capitalized to the principal amount.


Paycheck Protection Program


On May 1, 2020, the Company applied for and received a loan from the Bank of America, NA (the “Lender”) in the aggregate principal amount of $1,297,083 (the “Loan”) pursuant to the Paycheck Protection Program (the “PPP”) under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (the “CARES Act”). The Loan is evidenced by a promissory note dated May 1, 2020, issued by the Company to the Lender (the “Note”). The Loan has a two-year term and bears interest at a rate of 1.0% per annum. Monthly principal and interest payments are deferred for six months after the date of disbursement. The Company received the funds on or around May 4, 2020.

Under the terms of the PPP, subject to specific limitations, up to the entire amount of principal and accrued interest may be forgiven to the extent Loan proceeds are used for sum of qualifying and documented expenses such as payroll costs, covered rent payments, and covered utilities during the eight-week period that begins on the date the lender makes the first disbursement to the Company as described in the CARES Act and applicable implementing guidance issued by the U.S. Small Business Administration under the PPP. The Company intends to use the entire Loan amount for designated qualifying expenses and to apply for forgiveness of the Loan in accordance with the terms of the PPP. No assurance can be given that the Company will obtain forgiveness of the Loan in whole or in part.
