I'll go with A

'Not one' is singular and 'if' has to be accompanied by 'were' not 'was'. Take out B, D and E. Between A and C, A is good because 'them' is ambiguous is C

good question.

D,E -- out.. one of investors .. singular

if the deal were not be concluded ..(talking about unreal ) subjunctive.. mood..

something .. like If I were rich..

B "was" incorrect-- out

between A and C

C -- them is ambigous.
Also agreement "be" --> be is incorrect it should be "is"

A is the best

C is also a bit wordy, so A for me to.
