SBA Bankers Discussed New Small Business Aid at Jan. 26 GABB Meeting
Bankers with expertise in handling SBA loans talked about applying for the next round of Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) funding at the Jan. 26 virtual meeting of the Georgia Association of Business Brokers.
GABB Affiliate Representative Kim Eells , Senior Vice President of SBA Business Development at Georgia Primary Bank, spoke along with Thomas Rockwood, Senior Vice President of SBA Lending at Atlantic Capital Bank and Cadence Bank Vice President and SBA Banker Ryan Stoll.
The Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) reopened the week of January 11 for new borrowers and certain existing PPP borrowers, according to the U.S. Small Business Association. This round of the PPP continues to prioritize millions of Americans employed by small businesses by authorizing up to $284 billion toward job retention and certain other expenses through March 31, 2021, and by allowing certain existing PPP borrowers to apply for a Second Draw PPP Loan, the SBA says.
The SBA says a borrower is generally eligible for a Second Draw PPP Loan if the borrower:
- Previously received a First Draw PPP Loan and will or has used the full amount only for authorized uses;
Has no more than 300 employees; and
- Can demonstrate at least a 25% reduction in gross receipts between comparable quarters in 2019 and 2020.
- The GABB is the state’s premier organization devoted to buying and selling businesses and franchises, and operates the state’s only real estate school dedicated to business brokering.
