SBA Releases Procedures for Change of Ownership for PPP Loans

The SBA recently released a notice to provide required procedures for changes of ownership of an entity that has received a Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan.

For purposes of the PPP, a “change of ownership” will be considered to have occurred when (1) at least 20 percent of the common stock or other ownership interest of a PPP borrower (including a publicly traded entity) is sold or otherwise transferred, whether in one or more transactions,1 including to an affiliate or an existing owner of the entity, (2) the PPP borrower sells or otherwise transfers at least 50 percent of its assets (measured by fair market value), whether in one or more transactions, or (3) a PPP borrower is merged with or into another entity.
