Special Questions Comments
These comments have been edited for publication.
- There has been no change to our watch list, and no change to past-due loans.
- The majority of customers that temporarily shut down did not shut down entirely, but rather, their operations were substantially sized down or cut back.
- We participated as a PPP [Paycheck Protection Program] lender, with total funded PPP loans comprising about 10 percent of total assets.
- The Main Street [Lending] Program instructions are not “community bank friendly,” in my opinion. They are written for the big banks and much too complicated for the average community bank.
- The Main Street lending facility is much too complicated for a community bank to venture into managing. We have chosen to stay away.
