State below in reasonable detail why Forms 10-K, 20-F, 11-K, 10-Q, 10-D, N-SAR,, N-CSR, or the transition report or portion thereof, could not be filed within the prescribed time period. (Attach extra Sheets if Needed)

 

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 fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2021 (the “Q3 2021 Form 10-Q”) by the prescribed due date, for the reasons described below.

 

In connection with the preparation of the Company’s financial statements as of September 30, 2021, management, in consultation with its advisors, identified an error made in certain of its previously issued financial statements, arising from the manner in which, as of the closing of the Company’s initial public offering, the Company valued its Class A ordinary shares subject to possible redemption. The Company previously determined the value of such Class A ordinary shares to be equal to the redemption value of such shares, after taking into consideration the terms of the Company’s Amended and Restated Memorandum and Articles of Association, under which a redemption cannot result in net tangible assets being less than $5,000,001. Management has now determined, after consultation with its advisors, that the Class A ordinary shares underlying the units issued during the initial public offering can be redeemed or become redeemable subject to the occurrence of future events considered to be outside the Company’s control. Therefore, management has concluded that the redemption value of its Class A ordinary shares subject to possible redemption should reflect the possible redemption of all Class A ordinary shares. As a result, management has noted a reclassification error related to temporary equity and permanent equity and intends to reflect any reclassification of equity for the Company’s previous audited balance sheet as of March 31, 2021 and its unaudited financial statements for the periods ended March 2, 2021 (the “Affected Periods”) in its forthcoming Q3 2021 Form 10-Q. Any such adjustments to the financial statement items for the Affected Periods will be set forth through expanded disclosure in the financial statements included in the Q3 2021 Form 10-Q, including further describing the correction and its impact on previously reported amounts.

 

The Company, in consultation with its advisors, is continuing to finalize its Q3 2021 Form 10-Q financial statements to reflect the foregoing. The Company is working diligently to complete its Q3 2021 Form 10-Q as soon as possible, and expects to file such report on or before the fifth calendar day following the prescribed due date (or, if such date is not an EDGAR filing date, then the first EDGAR filing date thereafter).
