Item 5.07Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders. 

 

On March 25, 2022, Alpine 4 Holdings, Inc. a Delaware corporation (the “Company”) held its 2021 Annual Meeting of Shareholders (the “Annual Meeting”), for which the Board of Directors solicited proxies. At the Annual Meeting, the shareholders voted on the proposals set forth below, as described in the Company’s definitive proxy materials filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on February 1, 2022, and mailed to all of the Company’s shareholders beginning on or about February 12, 2022.

 

As reported in the Proxy Statement, On January 26, 2022, the Record Date for the Annual Meeting, the Company had had authorized capital stock of 195,000,000 shares of our Class A Common Stock, $0.0001 par value; 10,000,000 shares of our Class B Common Stock, $0.0001 par value; and 15,000,000 shares of our Class C Common Stock, $0.0001 par value.  As of the Record Date, the Company had 162,148,069 shares of Class A common stock outstanding and entitled to vote at the Annual meeting; 8,548,088 shares of Class B common stock outstanding and entitled to vote at the Annual meeting; and 12,545,201 shares of Class C common stock outstanding and entitled to vote at the Annual meeting.

 

Each share of Class A Common Stock is entitled to one (1) vote; each share of Class B Common Stock is entitled to ten (10) votes; and each share of Class C Common Stock is entitled to five (5) votes.  Additionally, there were 5 shares of our Series B Preferred Stock outstanding, held by members of the Company’s Board of Directors. All of the shares of Series B Preferred Stock together have voting power equal to 200% of the total voting power of all other Classes or series of outstanding shares, and each share of Series B Preferred Stock has a fractional portion of that aggregate vote.

 

As such, the holders of the outstanding Class B Common Stock, with 10 votes per share, were entitled to a total of 85,480,880 votes on all matters properly brought before the Annual Meeting.  The holders of the outstanding Class C Common Stock, with 5 votes per share, were entitled to a total of 62,726,005 votes on all matters properly brought before the Annual Meeting.

 

The transfer agent, who tallied the votes submitted through brokerage houses and to the transfer agent, tallied the votes of the Class A and Class C Common Stock together. The Company tallied the votes of the Class B Common Stock and of the Series B Preferred Stock.

 

A total of 103,587,776 shares of Class A and Class C Common Stock, representing a total of 59.3% of the total outstanding shares of Class A and Class C Common Stock, were represented in person or by proxy at the Annual Meeting. A total of 9,023,088 shares of Class B Common Stock were represented in person or by proxy at the Annual Meeting. All of the shares of Series B Preferred Stock were present in person or by proxy at the Annual Meeting.
