Frequency Electronics to Repay PPP Loan

May 7, 2020

MITCHEL FIELD, N.Y., May 07, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Frequency Electronics, Inc. (NASDAQ: FEIM) (the “Company” or “FEI”), as previously announced, received proceeds on April 12, 2020 from a loan in the amount of $4,964,810 (the “PPP Loan”) from JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. as the lender (the “Lender”), pursuant to the Small Business Administration (the “SBA”) Paycheck Protection Program under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act. On May 6, 2020, the Company elected to repay the PPP Loan in full.

FEI CEO, Stanton Sloane commented, “We are fortunate that the initial concerns we had regarding the potential impact of COVID-19 have not come to fruition, and we believe that our need for the capital provided by the PPP Loan has diminished. We have a strong balance sheet without the loan, we have continued operations as an essential industry and we continue to deliver products and collect payments. Consequently, we are pleased to repay the loan and free up that resource for other companies that have been more affected.”
