NASHVILLE, Tenn., May 19, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CapStar Bank, a subsidiary of CapStar Financial Holdings (CSTR), released today an exclusive PPP Loan Forgiveness Application Guidance pre-recorded webinar and forgiveness estimation calculator in response to the PPP Loan Forgiveness Application (SBA Form 3508) now available from the US Treasury.

The free webinar and calculator resource are available on CapStar Bank’s dedicated COVID-19 SBA website at www.capstarbank.com/covid19sba.

The webinar covers the following Paycheck Protection Program forgiveness hot topics and should provide answers to any borrower’s most pressing questions:

  • Review of the PPP Loan Forgiveness Application and critical points borrowers need to know
  • Introduction to the CapStar loan forgiveness calculator and how it works to estimate forgiveness (a requirement of the application)
  • Step-by-step review of a case study for reference

“Since the establishment of the Paycheck Protection Program, our primary goal has been to lead the way in providing clear guidance and accessible resources to business owners throughout the markets we serve,” said Mark Niethammer, CapStar’s Director of Government Guaranteed Lending. “As our focus begins to shift from processing and funding new applications to helping borrowers set themselves up for PPP forgiveness, our purpose of being a source of support and strength for our communities has not wavered.”

“Tennessee is fortunate to have a number of strong banks, but I am especially proud of the extraordinary efforts of the CapStar team as we’ve worked diligently to digest and navigate the PPP process over the last several weeks. Objectively comparing our performance to other financial institutions, CapStar’s PPP production vs. asset size has been remarkable and the resources our SBA team has developed are unparalleled in the marketplace,” said Tim Schools, CapStar’s president and CEO. “We are honored to do our part in helping businesses throughout Tennessee not only recover but thrive in the wake of COVID-19.”
