Item 2.03.    Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant

As previously reported, on January 15, 2021, Southwest Airlines Co. (the “Company”) entered into definitive documentation with the United States Department of the Treasury (“Treasury”) with respect to funding support pursuant to Subtitle A of Title IV of Division N of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 (the “PSP Extension Law”). On January 15, 2021, the Company entered into a payroll support program extension agreement (the “PSP Extension Agreement”) with Treasury, pursuant to which the Company received payroll support funding (“Payroll Support”) under the PSP Extension Law. As consideration for the Payroll Support, the Company issued a promissory note (the “Note”) in favor of Treasury and entered into a warrant agreement with Treasury (the “Warrant Agreement” and, together with the PSP Extension Agreement and the Note, the “Payroll Support Documents”), pursuant to which the Company agreed to issue warrants (each, a “Warrant”) to purchase common stock of the Company to Treasury in connection with each disbursement of Payroll Support. The Company received the first disbursement of Payroll Support on January 15, 2021.

On March 5, 2021, the Company received the second and final disbursement of Payroll Support in the amount of $863,685,200, for which the Company provided Treasury consideration in the form of an increase of the Note in an amount of $259,105,560 and a Warrant to purchase up to 559,865 shares of the Company’s common stock. After taking into account this second installment of Payroll Support, the Company has received the full $1,727,370,400 of expected Payroll Support, for which the Company has provided Treasury with a Note in the aggregate amount of $488,211,120 and Warrants to purchase up to 1,054,907 shares of the Company’s common stock.

A description of the Payroll Support Documents can be found in the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on January 15, 2021, and a copy of each Payroll Support Document is attached as an exhibit thereto.
