Certive Announces Corporate Update and PPP Loan Approval
SCOTTSDALE, AZ and VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / April 27, 2020 / Certive Solutions Inc. (OTCQB:CTVEF) (CSE:CBP) ("Certive" or the "Company"), is pleased to announce the following:
New Multi-Hospital Client - Certive's Omega Division has recently executed a new contract with a two-hospital system located in Virginia to provide Lost Charge Recovery services. Certive generates contingency income from these services on a shared revenue basis as a percentage of the amount recovered by the hospital from its payers. Omega is in the process of assessing and on-boarding this new client.
Results of PPP Loan Application - On April 3, 2020, the Company's wholly-owned U.S. subsidiary, Certive Health Inc. ("CHI"), applied for a $368,600 loan through Western Alliance Bank pursuant to the Small Business Administration ("SBA") Paycheck Protection Program under Division A, Title I of the CARES Act, which was enacted March 27, 2020 (the "PPP Loan"). The PPP Loan proceeds were received by CHI on April 22, 2020 and CHI intends to use them to pay for qualifying expenses, such as payroll and occupancy costs over the next 60-days. The terms of the PPP Loan include the following: (i) a maturity date of two years; (ii) interest at 1.00% per annum; (iii) no early prepayment penalties; and (iv) amounts used by CHI for qualifying U.S. employee payroll costs during a 60-day period prior to June 30, 2020 may be forgiven by the SBA upon their approval of a CHI application for forgiveness and proper documentation.
Update on COVID-19 Impact on the Company - As mentioned in a previous press release, dated March 24th, and pursuant to an order by the Mayor of Ft. Lauderdale, the Company's staff in Florida are all working remotely from home to ensure safety and to comply with the Mayor's mandate to "shelter-in-place". At the current time, this remote operating model has not affected the operational efficiencies negatively; in fact, it has resulted in a reduction of rent and associated occupancy expenses. While it is reasonably possible that these operational and economic challenges could create a materially adverse impact on the business and financial outlook of the Company, the Company believes that the long-term needs of hospitals to secure every possible revenue source will lead to additional business for the Company.
