Item 8.01 Other Events. 

 

Dear Shareholders,

 

2019 was a year of tremendous growth!   Building a business is never easy, nor is it for the faint of heart.   But the payoff can be large for those who are patient and willing to do what it takes to succeed.  Alpine 4 is no different.  For the past 6 years, we have been in “build mode” and building a company like Alpine 4 takes lots of energy, vision, and capital.   

 

Alpine 4 invested heavily in its DSF acquisition strategy in 2019 and we grew at a rate of 97.4% over 2018.  The investment into the right businesses has allowed Alpine 4 to grow beyond a start-up and we now have the substance to really become what we were designed to be.   

 

At times, GAAP reporting does not really tell the picture of what has been accomplished and can be too black and white.  Further to that point, SOX compliance and other reporting requirements such as Derivative Liabilities, give a snapshot of what could happen, but really don’t give fairness to the larger picture.  The hard changes we made in 2019 with restructuring our VCD (Variable Convertible Debt) that we took out to mitigate the theft event at our former subsidiary Venture West Energy Services, and transferring it into FPCD (Fix Price Convertible Debt), will play a large roll in obtaining profitability in 2020.  The Interest and Discounts we paid in 2019 of $5,237,205 was mostly made up of the VCD debt, and with that now out of the way, Alpine 4 can begin to effectuate normalized debt service.  Further, we also took the opportunity to restructure a larger capital lease for our subsidiary Quality Circuit Assembly, Inc that will free $69K per month in debt service.

 

While COVID-19 had no bearing on our 2019 financials, it will play a role in how 2020 and beyond shape up.  But, even when faced with a ton of adversity, the strong will persevere and figure a way forward.  At Alpine 4, we are figuring out how to move forward.  The constraints of labor have forced us to look at more efficient means to produce our products and services, and we answered that call and are starting to do more with less.   

 

I hope you see what we see in Alpine 4.  We believe firmly that our best days are yet to come and look forward to building on the progress of 2019.  

 

Best regards

 

Kent Wilson

CEO / President
