(NASDAQ: OCTO) (the “Company”) proudly announces the successful completion of the initial payment as part of the previously disclosed Prepayment and Redemption Agreement (the “Prepayment Agreement”) entered into by the Company with an accredited investor (the “Investor”).

With the finalization of the $3,000,000 initial payment (the “Initial Payment”), Eightco Holdings Inc. has achieved significant financial milestones, including the full repayment of the 2022 Note, reduction of the 2023 Note, and the complete and permanent redemption of the 2023 Warrant (each of the foregoing terms as defined in the Prepayment Agreement), completing the elimination of all outstanding warrants held by the Investor.
