NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / August 14, 2023 / 1847 Holdings LLC("1847" or the "Company") (NYSE American:EFSH), a unique holding company that combines the attractive attributes of owning private, lower-middle market businesses with the liquidity and transparency of a publicly traded company, today provided a report on its ongoing investigation into potentially improper and/or illegal trading activities, including naked short selling, of the Company's common stock.
On November 3, 2022, the Company engaged Shareholder Intelligence Services, LLC ("ShareIntel") to utilize their patented, proprietary service offerings to obtain share trading analytic metrics designed to help coordinate, monitor and enhance corporate governance, shareholder communication, regulatory compliance and surveillance of trading in the Company's shares in an effort to allow Company to better monitor trading activity, including potential violations of SEC Regulation SHO, which governs stock and option share locate, close out and fail to deliver requirements.
Based on an initial analysis of the Company's historic stock trading activity, the Company believes that it may have been the target of market manipulation and potentially illegal trading activities, including naked short selling of its stock. As such, the Company is exploring all of its potential options and remedies.
Mr. Ellery W. Roberts, CEO of 1847 Holdings, commented, "Due to ShareIntel's investigation, we have become aware of trading imbalances. We will delve deeper into the discrepancies identified in the analysis and contact necessary parties such as brokers, Broadridge, and the SEC to gather more information and ensure adherence to regulatory standards. We remain diligent and committed to taking all necessary actions to protect the interests of our shareholders, and will continue to work with ShareIntel and other partners to combat illegal short selling."

About 1847 Holdings LLC
1847 Holdings LLC (NYSE American: EFSH), a publicly traded diversified acquisition holding company, was founded by Ellery W. Roberts, a former partner of Parallel Investment Partners, Saunders Karp & Megrue, and Principal of Lazard Freres Strategic Realty Investors. 1847 Holdings' investment thesis is that capital market inefficiencies have left the founders and/or stakeholders of many small business enterprises or lower-middle market businesses with limited exit options despite the intrinsic value of their business. Given this dynamic, 1847 Holdings can consistently acquire businesses it views as "solid" for reasonable multiples of cash flow and then deploy resources to strengthen the infrastructure and systems of those businesses in order to improve operations. These improvements may lead to a sale or IPO of an operating subsidiary at higher valuations than the purchase price and/or alternatively, an operating subsidiary may be held in perpetuity and contribute to 1847 Holdings' ability to pay regular and special dividends to shareholders.
