A deal with iconic Italian motorcycle brand Ducati sent shares in Vmoto (ASX:VMT) up 77 per cent to 14c on Wednesday.
Vmoto will launch a two-wheel electric vehicle special edition for Ducati, to be manufactured and distributed by Vmoto under a worldwide licensing agreement signed with Ducati.
Nine-figure funding sent Havilah Resources (ASX:HAV) shares up 45 per cent to 22c at close.
The company secured $100 million from OneSteel, a member of the GFG Alliance.

This new sub-contract, unrelated to that deal, will see WhiteHawk provide an enterprise-wide cyber risk management framework to the primary contractor, currently unnamed but based in Virginia. The entire contract is worth about $2.8 billion.
