All in all, not a particularly friendly tape, but one that may ultimately present some new opportunities.

What’s more, the listing has registered increased average transaction volume recently, with the past month seeing 5% over what the stock has registered over the longer term.
Kent Wilson CEO of Alpine 4 had this to say: “As we began our search for the right capital partner we wanted to ensure that we were not only accessing capital that met our cost of capital needs, but also finding a firm that has the desire to take longer term positions in Alpine 4. Under this financing agreement Alpine 4 can opportunistically access capital at our option under favorable terms to advance our business objectives and help in the reduction of our debt burden.”
