Item 8.01. Other Events.

On December 19, 2022, Achari Ventures Holdings Corp. I (the “Company”) announced that the special meeting of the Company’s stockholders (the “Special Meeting”), which had been scheduled for 9:30 a.m. Eastern Time on December 19, 2022, was adjourned, and will recommence at 2:00 p.m. Eastern Time on December 22, 2022, via a virtual meeting live webcast at https://www.cstproxy.com/acharivc/2022.

The Special Meeting is being held for the purpose of considering and voting on, among other related business, certain proposals to amend the Company’s option to extend the period by which it must consummate a business combination, from three months, or from January 19, 2023 to April 19, 2023 to up to six months, or from January 19, 2023 to July 19, 2023, with such extensions exercisable in six single-month increments (the “Extension Proposals”). The Extension Proposal and related matters are described in more detail in the definitive proxy statement related to the Special Meeting filed by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on November 25, 2022 as amended to date (the “Definitive Proxy Statement”).

The record date for the Special Meeting remains the close of business on November 16, 2022.

In light of the adjournment, the Company has extended the deadline for public stockholders to submit their shares for redemption in connection with the Extension Proposals to 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on December 20, 2022. Stockholders who wish to withdraw their previously submitted redemption requests may do so prior to the vote at the Special Meeting by requesting that the Company’s transfer agent, Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, return such shares.

Participants in the Solicitation

The Company and certain of its directors and executive officers and other persons may be deemed to be participants in the solicitation of proxies from the Company’s stockholders in respect of the proposals to be considered and voted on at the Special Meeting. Information concerning the interests of the directors and executive officers of the Company is set forth in the Definitive Proxy Statement which may be obtained free of charge from the sources indicated above.

No Offer or Solicitation

This communication shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any securities, nor shall there be any sale of securities in any jurisdiction in which the offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to the registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction. No offering of securities shall be made except by means of a prospectus meeting the requirements of Section 10 of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.

Additional Information

The Company has filed with the SEC the Definitive Proxy Statement in connection with the Special Meeting to consider and vote upon certain proposals and, beginning on November 25, 2022, mailed the Definitive Proxy Statement and other relevant documents to its stockholders as of the November 16, 2022 record date for the Special Meeting. The Company’s stockholders and other interested persons are advised to read the Definitive Proxy Statement and all supplemental materials and any other relevant documents that have been or will be filed with the SEC in connection with the Company’s solicitation of proxies for the Special Meeting because these documents will contain important information about the Company, the Extension Proposals and related matters. Stockholders may also obtain a free copy of the Definitive Proxy Statement, as well as other relevant documents that have been or will be filed with the SEC, without charge, at the SEC’s website located at www.sec.gov or by directing a request to Morrow Sodali LLC, at (203) 658-9400 (call collect), (800) 662-5200 (call toll-free), or by sending an email to AVHI.info@investor.morrowsodali.com.

This Current Report on Form 8-K (“Current Report”) may include, and oral statements made from time to time by representatives of the Company may include, “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. Statements regarding the approval of certain proposals at the Special meeting or the implementation of the Extension Proposals, possible business combinations and the financing thereof, and related matters, as well as all other statements other than statements of historical fact included in this Current Report are forward-looking statements.

Such forward-looking statements are based on the beliefs of management, as well as assumptions made by, and information currently available to, the Company’s management. Actual results could differ materially from those contemplated by the forward-looking statements as a result of certain factors detailed in the Company’s filings with the SEC. All subsequent written or oral forward-looking statements attributable to us or persons acting on our behalf are qualified in their entirety by this paragraph. Forward-looking statements are subject to numerous conditions, many of which are beyond the control of the Company, including those set forth in the Risk Factors section of the Company’s registration statement and prospectus for the Company’s initial public offering filed with the SEC.
