Japaul Gold and Ventures Plc, formerly known as Japaul Oil and Maritime Services Plc, announced in November it had received approval in principle from H&H Mines Limited to invest in the company once it concludes its proposed fundraising in 2021.

The company’s shares rose over 200 percent following the news before Investors King, in numerous articles, highlighted the possibility of the deal not materialising as expected given COVID-19 and Japaul Gold’s ability to raise funds needed to complete the deal.

Since the deal was announced, the company has been unable to raise the required funds to complete the deal as expected, hence the reason the price of Japaul Gold and Venture shares plunged.
