Item 8.01 Other Events.

As previously reported, on April 17, 2020, Gulf Island Fabrication, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into an unsecured loan in the aggregate amount of $10.0 million (“PPP Loan”) with Hancock Whitney Bank (“Whitney Bank”) pursuant to the Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”) under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act, as amended.  The PPP Loan, and accrued interest, were eligible to be forgiven partially or in full, if certain conditions were met. On September 29, 2020, the Company submitted its application to Whitney Bank for forgiveness of $8.9 million of the PPP Loan.  Whitney Bank approved the application for forgiveness on December 14, 2020, and the Company’s application was forwarded to the Small Business Administration (“SBA”) for review.  In July 2021, the SBA approved the Company’s application for forgiveness.

On July 28, 2021, Whitney Bank received approximately $9.1 million from the SBA, which was the amount of loan forgiveness requested in the loan forgiveness application, including accrued interest.  On July 29, 2021, the Company repaid the remaining balance of the PPP Loan, together with accrued interest. The forgiveness and repayment of the PPP Loan are effective as of July 7, 2021 and will be recognized during the Company’s third quarter ending September 30, 2021.
