Item 3.01. Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.

On November 16, 2023, Alpine 4 Holdings, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), received a notice (the “Notice”) from The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) indicating that, as a result of not having filed the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2023, with the SEC on time, the Company was not in compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) (the “Listing Rule”), which requires timely filing of all required periodic financial reports with the SEC.

The Notice indicated that under Nasdaq Listing Rules, the Company has 60 calendar days to submit a plan to regain compliance with the Listing Rule. If Nasdaq accepts the Company’s plan, Nasdaq can grant an exception of up to 180 calendar days from the filing date for the Form 10-Q to regain compliance. The Company currently plans to file the Form 10-Q as soon as practicable and to submit a plan to Nasdaq detailing the Company’s plan to regain compliance with the Listing Rule.

The Notice has no immediate impact on the listing of the Company’s Common Stock, which will continue to be listed and traded on The Nasdaq Capital Market under the symbol “ALPP,” subject to the Company’s compliance with the requirements outlined above.

As previously reported, the Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended September 30, 2023, could not be filed within the prescribed period because the Company’s independent accountants have recently requested certain additional information and supporting documentation in order to complete their review procedures of the Company’s quarterly financial statements. The Company is currently providing such information and documentation and will work to file the quarterly report as soon as possible.

Forward-looking Statements

This Report contains forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties. For example, forward-looking statements include statements regarding the timing of the filing of the Form 10-Q, the submission of a plan to regain compliance with the Listing Rule, and Nasdaq’s potential acceptance of such a plan. Actual results could differ materially from the results projected in or implied by the forward-looking statements made in this report. Factors that might cause these differences include, but are not limited to: the possibility of unanticipated delays that will prevent the filing of the Form 10-Q within the allotted 60-day period, the risk that the work necessary to complete the Form 10-Q is greater than anticipated or may involve the resolution of additional issues identified during the review process, the potential inability to file a plan to regain compliance in a timely manner, the risk of potential additional violations of Listing Rule 5250(c)(1), the risk that the Company may not respond adequately to further inquiries from Nasdaq, and the risk that Nasdaq will not accept any plan to regain compliance and will delist the Company's Class A common stock. Other risk factors that may impact these forward-looking statements are discussed in more detail in the Company’s 2022 Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on May 5, 2023. Copies of the Company’s 2022 Annual Report and other periodic reports are available through the Company's Investor Relations department and website, alpine4.com. The Company expressly disclaims any obligation or intention to update these forward-looking statements to reflect new information and developments.
