ITEM 1.02.

As previously reported in the Current Report on Form 8-K dated April 23, 2020 by Kaspien Holdings Inc. (the “Company”), Kaspien Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company, received a $2,017,550 unsecured loan (the “PPP Loan”) under the Paycheck Protection Program, which was established under the U.S. government’s Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act and is administered by the U.S. Small Business Administration (“SBA”). The PPP Loan to Kaspien Inc. was made through First Interstate Bank (the “Lender”), and Kaspien Inc. entered into a Paycheck Protection Program Promissory Note and Agreement with the Lender evidencing the PPP Loan.

On June 15, 2021, we received notice from our Lender that the Small Business Administration (“SBA”) has approved our application for forgiveness of our PPP Loan. The amount of the forgiveness is $1,941,098 in principal and $22,336 in interest, which is the amount we requested in our forgiveness application and is less than the original principal balance due. Following the grant of forgiveness, we had an outstanding balance of $76,452, which will be paid during the second quarter.

Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
