1847 Goedeker Inc. (NYSE:GOED) ("Goedeker's" or the "Company"), a one-stop e-commerce destination for appliances, furniture, home goods, and related products, today announced that the company has repaid, in full, the Paycheck Protection Program ("PPP") loan issued on April 8, 2020. The repayment comes 17 months ahead of the April 2022 maturity date.

"Consumers record online ordering on Goedekers.com and increasing confidence in how we meet their appliance needs was in part due to the use of the PPP funds to keep and expand our full-time work force. Our success created an opportunity to Pay It Forward by immediately repaying our PPP loan," said Doug Moore, CEO of Goedeker's. "Since initially receiving funds in April, we have added staff and significantly strengthened our balance sheet through our July IPO, enabling us to repay the balance early and in full. We are now in a great position ahead of our pending acquisition of Appliances Connection which is expected to be a key driver of our $400 million revenue projection for 2021."

The PPP loan had a two-year term with 1.0% interest per annum. Monthly principal and interest payments were deferred for six months from the date of disbursement, resulting in a final payoff amount of $646,241. There were no prepayment penalties.
