New Funding from COVID-19 Relief Loan Program


Itaconix (LSE:ITX) (OTCQB:ITXXF) announces that it has received $0.2 million in new funding from a loan under the US Small Business Administration's Paycheck Protection Program. 

The Company received the maximum amount allowed under the program based on its payroll and may qualify for partial forgiveness under the terms of the loan if certain payroll conditions are met.  If these conditions are not met or the Board chooses not to seek forgiveness, the loan is repayable in equal instalments over eighteen months commencing in December 2020.
