MIAMI, FLORIDA, September 8, 2020 – Global Crossing Airlines Inc. (TSXV: JET) (OTC Pink: JETMF) (the "Company" or "GlobalX") is pleased to announce its intention to spin-out its 100% owned Canada Jetlines Operations Ltd. subsidiary to an existing shell company and renaming it Canada Jetlines Vacations ("CJV"). Subject to concluding satisfactory terms, GlobalX intends to provide CJV with aircraft and crews to fly Vacation charters to Florida, Atlantic City and the Caribbean. GlobalX will retain a controlling interest in CJV and is evaluating distributing this residual ownership interest in CJV to its shareholders on a pro-rata basis.
"We believe Canadians seek more alternatives when it comes to airlines and vacation providers," stated Ed Wegel, Chairman and CEO of Global X. "We believe by creating a stand-alone public company committed to serving the Canadian market represents a unique opportunity and will ultimately bring to fruition the long term vision of our original Canada Jetlines shareholders to provide choice to Canadians when it comes to vacation and air travel."
Mr. Wegel added "we have identified funding sources to complete the proposed transaction, subject to completion of a public listing of Canada Jetlines Vacations and other customary conditions".
The completion of this transaction would not affect in any way the current shareholdings of shareholders in Global Crossing Airlines Inc. The completion of this transaction and distribution of any securities to shareholders in the new proposed company is subject to a number of conditions including the completion of legal and tax structuring analysis, identification of a suitable shell company, completion of financing and receipt of required regulatory approvals. There is no certainty the transaction will be completed on the terms proposed or at all. Further details will be provided in subsequent news releases.
