Upon the closing of the transaction, the combined company will be named Jet.AI Inc. and its securities are expected to be listed on Nasdaq Capital Markets. The transaction is expected to provide the Company with access to the capital markets and thereby position the Company to accelerate its AI software development and expansion of its aircraft fleet.
“We are very excited to support Jet Token as it executes it growth plan” said Jay Madhu, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board of OXAC. “We believe this transaction will provide an attractive entry point and valuation for OXAC’s investors with the potential for significant upside.”
“We’re thrilled with the transaction and believe this strategic move positions the Company for continued growth and success at the nexus of private aviation and high technology. Along with this exciting development, we are also pleased to announce that we will be changing our name to Jet.AI Inc. to reflect our new focus on the use of artificial intelligence to enhance our expanding fleet and create new revenue streams” said Michael Winston, Founder and Executive Chairman of Jet Token.
The combined company will be known as Jet.AI Inc. and will operate under the same management team as Jet Token, which is led by Mr. Winston. The transaction contemplates an enterprise value of approximately $45 million for Jet Token, and additional earnout warrants with a Black Scholes valuation of $60 million.

These forward-looking statements generally are identified by the words “believe,” “project,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “estimate,” “intend,” “strategy,” “future,” “opportunity,” “plan,” “may,” “should,” “will,” “would,” “will be,” “will continue,” “will likely result,” and similar expressions. Forward-looking statements are predictions, projections and other statements about future events that are based on current expectations and assumptions and, as a result, are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause the actual results to differ materially from the expected results. As a result, caution must be exercised in relying on forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date they were made. The following factors, among others, could cause actual results to differ materially from those described in these forward-looking statements: the occurrence of any event, change or other circumstances that could give rise to an amendment or termination of the Business Combination Agreement and the proposed transaction contemplated thereby; the inability to complete the transactions contemplated by the Business Combination Agreement due to the failure to obtain approval of the stockholders of Oxbridge or Jet Token or other conditions to closing in the Business Combination Agreement; the inability to project with any certainty the amount of cash proceeds remaining in the Oxbridge trust account at the closing of the transaction; the inability of the company post-closing to obtain or maintain the listing of its securities on Nasdaq following the business combination; the amount of costs related to the business combination; the outcome of any legal proceedings that may be instituted against the parties following the announcement of the business combination; changes in applicable laws or regulations; the ability of Jet Token to meet its post-closing financial and strategic goals, due to, among other things, competition; the ability of the company post-closing to grow and manage growth profitability and retain its key employees; and the possibility that the company post-closing may be adversely affected by other economic, business, and/or competitive factors. The valuation of the securities to be distributed in the transaction also constitutes a forward-looking statement, with the common stock component of the transaction valued based upon a $10 valuation which is intended to approximate the liquidation value of the common stock at closing, but may not represent the post-closing value of the shares, and with the warrant component of the transaction valued at $8.16 per warrant by application of a Black-Scholes formula developed by Jet Token management, which may not equate to the actual post-closing value of the warrants.
