Under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act), the promissory note may be forgiven by the Small Business Administration in whole or in part if the proceeds are used for covered expenses and certain other requirements related to wage rates and maintenance of full-time equivalents are met.

"MiracleFeet applied for forgiveness on March 24, 2021, and received forgiveness of $214,585 in principal and $1,969 in interest from the Small Business Administration on April 15, 2021.

"If forgiveness is granted, MiracleFeet will record Government grant revenue during the period that forgiveness was approved. Management expects forgiveness to be granted prior to June 30, 2022, accordingly, the loan liability has been presented as a current liability in the accompanying [audited] Consolidated Statement of Financial Position."
