Item 3.01. Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.

 

On August 23, 2023, the New York Stock Exchange (the “NYSE”) notified African Gold Acquisition Corporation, a Cayman Islands exempted company (the “Company”), and publicly announced, that NYSE had determined to commence proceedings to delist from NYSE (i) the Company’s units, each consisting of one Class A ordinary share and three-quarters of one redeemable warrant, that are listed to trade on NYSE under the symbol “AGAC.U” (the “Units”) and (ii) the Company’s Class A ordinary shares, par value $0.0001 per share, that are listed to trade on NYSE under the symbol “AGAC” (the “Ordinary Shares”). Trading in the Units and Ordinary Shares was suspended immediately. NYSE determined to delist the Units and Ordinary Shares due to the Company’s inability to file its Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the periods ended June 30, 2022, September 30, 2022, March 31, 2023 and June 30, 2023 and Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2022 by August 22, 2023, which is the maximum time allowed under Section 802.01E of the NYSE’s Listed Company Manual. The Company does not intend to appeal the NYSE’s determination.

 

The foregoing actions and their consequences could affect the liquidity and value of the Company’s securities. The Units and the Ordinary Shares may be traded on the over-the-counter markets, or any other available market.

 

Item 5.02. Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

 

On August 1, 2023, and August 2, 2023, respectively, Bradley Doig, Koosum Kalyan and Zolani Kgosietsile Matthews voluntarily resigned, effective immediately, as directors of the Company. Ms. Kalyan and Messrs. Doig and Matthews resigned in order to pursue other opportunities and not due to any disagreement with the Company on any matter relating to its operations, policies or practices.

 

Item 8.01. Other Events.

 

The Company intends to liquidate the trust account and proceed with winding down the Company. The Company expects to complete the redemption of all public shares on or about September 11, 2023. The Company anticipates that the last day of trading of the Units and the Ordinary Shares on the over-the-counter markets will be on or about September 8, 2023.
