Item 3.02 Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.

 

As previously reported on our Current Report on Form 8-K filed on November 27, 2023, Gaucho Group Holdings, Inc. (the “Company”) commenced a private placement of shares of common stock for gross proceeds of up to $4,000,000 at a price per share which equals the Nasdaq Rule 5653(d) Minimum Price definition, but in no event at a price per share lower than $0.60 (the “Private Placement”).

 

On December 29, 2023, pursuant to the Private Placement, the Company issued a total of 100,00 shares of common stock for gross proceeds of $60,000 at $0.60 per share.

 

Pending approval by the stockholders at the Company’s Special Meeting of Stockholders scheduled for February 29, 2024, each investor in the Private Placement will be afforded certain anti-dilution protections for a period of 18 months following each closing of the Private Placement. If, during the 18-month period following each closing of the Offering, the Company issues or sells any shares of common stock of the Company other than in relation to that certain equity line of credit pursuant to the Common Stock Purchase Agreement dated November 8, 2022 by and between the Company and Tumim Stone Capital LLC (a “Dilutive Issuance”), then each participant in the Offering will automatically be issued such number of shares of common stock as is necessary to maintain the percentage ownership that such participant would have had if the Dilutive Issuance had not occurred. With respect to the issuance of any securities to the investor who is a party to the Securities Purchase Agreement dated February 21, 2023 and the Convertible Promissory Note dated February 21, 2023 as a result of Dilutive Issuances, participant shall not be entitled to any additional Dilutive Issuances beyond the initial Dilutive Issuance. Further, at such time that the participant disposes of its shares acquired in the Private Placement, all rights to any Dilutive Issuance shall cease.

 

The Company presently intends to use the net proceeds from the Private Placement to extinguish debt, fund infrastructure development at Algodon Wine Estates, and for general working capital. The Company anticipates that the Private Placement will be completed within a month from date of commencement.

 

The Private Placement is conducted pursuant to Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act and/or Rule 506(b) of Regulation D promulgated under the Securities Act. The shares are only offered to a small select group of accredited investors, as defined in Rule 501 of Regulation D, all of whom have a substantial pre-existing relationship with the Company. The Company will file a Form D within 15 days of the first date of sale.

 

This current report on Form 8-K is issued in accordance with Rule 135c under the Securities Act, and is neither an offer to sell any securities, nor a solicitation of an offer to buy, nor shall there be any sale of any such securities in any state or jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state or jurisdiction.

 

In connection with the vesting of Restricted Stock Units (“RSUs”), on December 31, 2023, the Company’s CEO and CFO received a total of 7,093 shares pursuant to RSUs issued under the 2018 Equity Incentive Plan at a price per share of $11.16.

 

For this sale of securities, no general solicitation was used, no commissions were paid, all persons were accredited investors, and the Company relied on the exemption from registration available under Section 4(a)(2) and/or Rule 506(b) of Regulation D promulgated under the Securities Act with respect to transactions by an issuer not involving any public offering. A Form D was filed with the SEC on March 30, 2023.

 

Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

 

Effective December 31, 2023, William Allen, a Class III Director of the Company, resigned from the Company’s Board of Directors. Mr. Allen did not resign due to any disagreement with the Company on any matter relating to its operations, policies or practices.
