AFCO Finance

Annually, we enter into a financing agreement with AFCO Credit Corporation (“AFCO”) purchased through Marsh Insurance to fund the annual premiums on insurance policies due June 1 of each year. These policies are related to workers’ compensation and various liability policies including, but not limited to, General, Auto, Umbrella, Property, and Directors’ and Officers’ insurance. The total amount of the premiums financed during June 2020 was $429 with an interest rate of 3.3%. An initial down payment of $143 was due before July 1, 2020 with additional monthly payments of $48 made beginning July 1, 2020 and ending June 1, 2021.

The outstanding principal due AFCO at January 2, 2021 and December 28, 2019 was $144 and $155, respectively.

Payroll Protection Program


On May 1, 2020, the Company entered into a promissory note (the “Promissory Note”) with Texas Capital Bank, N.A. that provides for a loan in the amount of $1,872 (the “PPP Loan”) pursuant to the Paycheck Protection Program under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (the “CARES Act”). The PPP Loan matures on April 27, 2022 and bears interest at a rate of 1.0% per annum. Monthly amortized principal and interest payments are deferred for six months after the date of disbursement. The Promissory Note contains events of default and other provisions customary for a loan of this type. The Paycheck Protection Program provides that the use of the PPP Loan amount shall be limited to certain qualifying expenses and may be partially or wholly forgiven in accordance with the requirements set forth in the CARES Act. The Company has applied for forgiveness of a portion of the loan in accordance with the terms of the CARES Act to the extent applicable.


Customer Advance Payments

As of the period ending June 27, 2020, the Company received advance payments authorized by the California Public Utilities Commission and processed through two California utilities for the purposes of sustaining the workforce during the COVID-19 pandemic shutdown. The use of these funds was limited to labor and labor benefits for impacted employees. Portions of these advances are forgivable if certain conditions are met the specifics which have not been finalized.  Advance payments that are not forgiven will need to be paid back in full by December 31, 2021. Total funding received under this program as of September 26, 2020 amounted to $1,168. As of January 2, 2021, $142 was forgiven, leaving a balance of $1,026.
