This press release contains certain forward-looking statements within the meaning of the federal securities laws with respect to the proposed Business Combination, including statements regarding the benefits of the Business Combination, the anticipated timing of the Business Combination, the services offered by Jet.AI and the markets in which it operates, and Jet.AI’s projected future results. 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 Plan of Reorganization between Oxbridge, Oxbridge Merger Sub I, Inc., Oxbridge Merger Sub II, LLC, and Jet.AI dated (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.AI 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.AI 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 approximately $8.16 per warrant by application of a Black-Scholes formula developed by Jet.AI management, which may not equate to the actual post-closing value of the warrants. You should carefully consider the foregoing factors and the other risks and uncertainties described in the “Risk Factors” section of Oxbridge’s registration statement on Form S-1 which became effective on August 11, 2021 (File No. 333-257998), the Registration Statement and the amendments thereto on Form S-4 as discussed above (File No. 333-270848) and other documents filed by Oxbridge from time to time with the SEC. These filings identify and address other important risks and uncertainties that could cause actual events and results to differ materially from those contained in the forward-looking statements. Oxbridge and Jet.AI caution that the foregoing list of factors is not exclusive. These forward-looking statements are provided for illustrative purposes only and are not intended to serve as, and must not be relied on by any investor as, a guarantee, an assurance, a prediction or a definitive statement of fact or probability. Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they are made. Readers are cautioned not to put undue reliance on forward-looking statements, and Jet.AI and Oxbridge assume no obligation and do not intend to update or revise these forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise.

ZA Tech Rebrands as Peak3, Raises US$35M Series A led by EQT

Published

on

za-tech-rebrands-as-peak3,-raises-us$35m-series-a-led-by-eqt

SINGAPORE, June 19, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — ZA Tech, the next-generation insurance core system SaaS provider, has rebranded as Peak3. With the successful completion of its US$35 million Series A fundraising from EQT (lead investor) and Alpha JWC Ventures, Peak3 now accelerates its expansion in the EMEA region and investments in complementary data and AI solutions.

In a market dominated by fragmented legacy technology, Peak3 has pioneered a cloud-native, modular insurance core and distribution system that combines comprehensive capabilities for life, health, and property and casualty (P&C) insurance. Since its founding in 2018, Peak3 has become a trusted technology partner to global insurers such as AIA, Generali, Prudential, and Zurich for their digital and traditional business. It has also partnered with leading digital platforms such as Carro, Grab, Klook, and PayPay to build and scale their embedded insurance businesses.
Besides the successful fundraising, Peak3 has recently achieved key milestones underpinning the rebranding. These transformative achievements include launching its first multi-country, multi-tenant core modernisation in Europe, rolling out an integrated customer data and big data platform for scaling analytics and AI capabilities, and establishing its first technology centre in Europe. The rebranding coincides with another major milestone: Issuing over a billion insurance policies on Peak3’s systems – including the first policies issued to North American customers and the first ones to be issued in Africa.
“We have evolved from an embedded insurance pioneer in Asia to a global end-to-end technology partner for the insurance industry,” said Bill Song, Peak3 Group CEO and Co-Founder. “Our new name represents three pinnacles: scaling the heights of innovation, surpassing performance limits, and delivering superior reliability – as we help insurers reach the highest summits of their cloud, data, and AI transformation.”
Bill Song also emphasised the growth opportunity: “There is an incredible tech investment backlog in the US$7-trillion global insurance industry. Continued digitalisation and the proliferation of AI will require structural investments by insurers over the next decade to modernise their core systems. We are uniquely positioned to capture this opportunity by providing the tech core foundations and innovation use cases.” 
To accelerate its growth journey, Peak3 completed its Series A fundraising and welcomed two new investors on its cap table: EQT, a major global technology investor with a deep heritage in Europe, and Alpha JWC Ventures, a leading venture firm in Southeast Asia. With the funding, Peak3 will advance its analytics and AI capabilities toward an intelligent core insurance solution, grow its EMEA operations and establish new system integrator partnerships. Peak3 targets double-digit ARR growth this year and is on the path to reach cashflow breakeven over the coming quarters.
“Peak3 has also proven its capability to deliver greenfield digital insurance initiatives and complex multi-country core modernisation projects in APAC and EMEA. As the lead investor, EQT is committed to empowering Peak3 in its go-to-market acceleration by leveraging our global network,” stated Clara Ho, Partner at EQT.
J.P. Morgan acted as exclusive financial advisor to Peak3 for this Series A fundraising.
