Item 1.01    Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

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

Item 3.02    Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.

On July 31, 2023, Alpine 4 Holdings, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the "Company") executed a settlement agreement (the "Settlement Agreement") regarding a seller's note issued by the Company to Alan Martin in connection with his sale of Horizon Well Testing, LLC (a former subsidiary of the Company) to the Company. In 2020, the Company and Mr. Martin were involved in litigation, disclosed in the Company's periodic filings, concerning the Company’s purchase of Horizon Well Testing, L.L.C. from Mr. Martin. The litigation involved claims and defenses asserted by both sides against one another. After confidential mediation before Honorable Eileen Willett, United States Magistrate Judge for the United States District Court for the District of Arizona, the parties settled their dispute on acceptable terms. On July 31, 2023, the Company and Mr. Martin entered into the Settlement Agreement, which was dated as of July 27, 2023, pursuant to which Mr. Martin agreed to release his claims against the Company in exchange for the following from the Company: $100,000 payable on or before August 3, 2023; 250,000 shares of the Company's Class A common stock to be issued immediately (the "Shares"); $2,000,000 payable on or before October 31, 2023, and a $1,800,000 note payable (the "Note") with monthly payments of $75,000 beginning on December 1, 2023, with a final payment of $900,000 payable on or before December 1, 2024. The Note bears no interest, and the Company has the right to prepay its obligation under the Note without penalty.

Additionally, pursuant to the Settlement Agreement, the Company and Mr. Martin stipulated to the dismissal with prejudice of the claims of both parties against each other under the 2020 lawsuit. Further, the parties agreed that if the Company fails to perform its obligations under the Settlement Agreement, Mr. Martin would be entitled to file a stipulated motion to set aside the order of dismissal and have judgment entered in Mr. Martin's favor. Mr. Martin agreed that any performance by the Company of its obligations would constitute partial satisfaction of the amount owed by the Company pursuant to the 2020 lawsuit.

The issuance and sale of the Note and Shares have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933 (as amended, the “Securities Act”) or under any state securities law and were offered and issued, as applicable, in reliance upon the exemption from registration requirements of the Securities Act set forth in Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act, and rules and regulations promulgated thereunder. The Company did not engage in a general solicitation or advertising regarding the issuance of the Note or the Shares. Mr. Martin has represented to the Company his intention to acquire the Note and the Shares for investment purposes only and not with a view toward their resale, distribution or other disposition in violation of the Securities Act or any applicable state securities laws, and appropriate legends will be affixed to the Note and the Shares.

This Current Report contains only a brief description of the material terms of the Settlement Agreement and does not purport to be a complete description of the rights and obligations of the parties thereunder, and such descriptions are qualified in their entirety by reference to the full text of the Settlement Agreement, which will be included as an exhibit filed with the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2023.
