Amendment Description Global Clean Energy Holdings, Inc. is filing this Amendment No. 1 (the “Amendment No. 1”) to the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2022 (the “Original Form 10-K”), filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on April 18, 2023, only for the purpose of including the Part III information required under the instructions to Form 10-K and the general rules and regulations under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), which information was previously omitted from the Original Form 10-K in reliance on General Instruction G(3) to Form 10-K, which permits the omitted information to be incorporated in the Original Form 10-K by reference from our definitive proxy statement if such statement is filed no later than 120 days after our fiscal year-end. This Amendment No. 1 amends and restates only Part III, Items 10, 11, 12, 13, and 14, and amends Part IV, Item 15 of the Original Form 10-K. In addition, this Amendment No. 1 deletes the reference on the cover of the Original Form 10-K to the incorporation by reference of portions of our proxy statement into Part III of the Original Form 10-K. No other Items of the Original Form 10-K have been amended or revised in this Form 10-K/A, and all such other Items shall be as set forth in the Original Form 10-K. In addition, pursuant to SEC rules, Item 15 of Part IV of the Original Form 10-K is hereby amended solely to include, as Exhibits 31.1 and 31.2, new certifications of our principal executive officer and principal financial officer pursuant to Rule 13a-14(a) under the Exchange Act. Because no financial statements are included in this Amendment No. 1 and this Amendment No. 1 does not contain or amend any disclosure with respect to Items 307 and 308 of Regulation S-K, paragraphs 3, 4, and 5 of such certifications have been omitted. We are not including new certifications required by Rule 13a-14(b) under the Exchange Act as no financial statements are included in this Amendment No. 1. In addition, no other information has been updated for any subsequent events occurring after April 18, 2023, the date of the filing of the Original Form 10-K. Accordingly, this Amendment No. 1 should be read in conjunction with the Original Form 10-K and our other filings made with the SEC subsequent to the filing of the Original Form 10-K. Unless the context otherwise requires, references in this Amendment No. 1 to “we,” “us,” “our,” “our company,” and “the Company” collectively refer to Global Clean Energy Holdings, Inc. and its wholly-owned subsidiaries. References to “GCEH” refer only to Global Clean Energy Holdings, Inc.
