PART III – NARRATIVE

 

African Gold Acquisition Corporation (the “Company”) has determined that it is unable, without unreasonable effort or expense, to file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended March 31, 2021 (the “Q1 2021 Form 10-Q”) by the prescribed filing date due to the reasons described below.

 

The Company is working diligently to complete the Q1 2021 Form 10-Q as soon as possible; however, given the scope of the process for evaluating the impact on the Company’s financial statements of the Staff Statement on Accounting and Reporting Considerations for Warrants Issued by Special Purpose Acquisition Companies (the “SEC Statement”) issued by the staff of the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 12, 2021 and ASC 815-40, the Company is unable to complete and file the Q1 2021 Form 10-Q by the required due date of May 17, 2021 without unreasonable effort and expense. However, the Company anticipates that it will be able to complete and file the Q1 2021 Form 10-Q no later than May 24, 2021.

 

After consideration of the guidance in the SEC Statement, the Company concluded that its outstanding warrants should be accounted for as a liability and measured at fair value with changes in fair value each period reported in the Company’s statement of operations. The Company is in the process of completing its final analysis of this change and is evaluating the materiality of the impact on its previously filed financial statements. The Company expects to reflect this revision as a correction of a material error in the Company’s financial statements as of and for the three month period ended March 31, 2021.

If the answer is no, identify report(s).  ☒  Yes  ☐  No

Disclosures About Forward-Looking Statements

 

This Current Report on Form 12b-25 contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and such statements are intended to be covered by the safe harbor provided by the same. These statements are based on the current beliefs and expectations of the Company’s management and are subject to significant risks and uncertainties. The above statements regarding the correction of the material errors in the Company’s financial statements related to the accounting treatment of the Company’s outstanding warrants, as well as the effect of the revision on any subsequent periodic SEC filings, constitute forward-looking statements that are based on the Company’s current expectations. Because these forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties, there are important factors that could cause future events to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements, many of which are outside of the Company’s control. These factors include, but are not limited to, a variety of risk factors affecting the Company’s business and prospects, see “Risk Factors” in the Company’s annual, quarterly reports and other subsequent reports filed with the SEC, as amended from time to time. The Company does not undertake to update the forward-looking statements to reflect the impact of circumstances or events that may arise after the date of the forward-looking statements.
