Item 3.02 Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.


As described in our Current Report on Form 8-K as filed with the SEC on May 21, 2024, Gaucho Group Holdings, Inc. (the “Company”) filed a Certificate of Designation of Senior Convertible Preferred Stock with the Delaware Secretary of State, designating 100,000 shares of preferred stock of the Company, par value $0.01, as Senior Convertible Preferred Stock (the “Senior Convertible Preferred Stock”).


In order to raise additional capital for the Company, the Board of Directors of the Company approved the commencement of a private placement of shares of Senior Convertible Preferred Stock (“Preferred Shares”) and 8.5% promissory notes (the “Notes”) for aggregate proceeds of up to $7.2 million (up to $6 million with a 20% overallotment) pursuant to Section 4(a)(2) of the 1933 Act and Rule 506(b) of Regulation D thereunder (the “Private Placement”). The Preferred Shares will be issued at a price per share of $100; provided that the Company is limited to the sale of up to 6,731 Preferred Shares for gross proceeds of $637,100 until such time as stockholder approval is granted pursuant to Nasdaq Rule 5635(d) at the Company’s Annual General Meeting of Stockholders on August 18, 2024 (the “2024 AGM”).


The Notes, with 8.5% annual interest, become convertible into Preferred Shares at a price of $100 per share on the date the Company obtains stockholder approval of its Proposals No. 2, 3, and 4 at the 2024 AGM. If the proposals are not approved by our stockholders, the Notes are due in full 120 days from the date of issuance. Please see our Definitive Proxy as filed with the SEC on July 1, 2024.


The Company presently intends to use the net proceeds from this Private Placement to extinguish debt, fund infrastructure development at Algodon Wine Estates, and for general working capital.


As of June 30, 2024, the Company has entered into Notes for principal of $1,929,300. No shares of Senior Convertible Preferred Stock have yet been sold in the Private Placement.


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.
