Oxbridge Re Announces Launch of Tokenized Real-World Asset Offering EpilsonCat Re

GRAND CAYMAN, Cayman Islands, March 27, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Oxbridge Re Holdings Limited (Nasdaq: OXBR), (the “Company”), and its subsidiaries which are engaged in the business of tokenized Real-World Assets (“RWAs”), initially in the form of Tokenized Reinsurance Securities, and reinsurance business solutions to property and casualty insurers, announced the launch of its offering of this year’s Participation Shares represented by digital tokens to be issued under a 3-year Participation Share Investment Contract (the “PSIC”). The offering which is the second year of the Cat Re series, is being conducted by our indirectly wholly owned subsidiary SurancePlus Inc. (“SurancePlus”) will issue between 500,000 to 1,000,000 Participation Shares, represented by digital tokens labelled “EpsilonCat Re”. The Participation Shares will be offered at an initial price of $10 per Participation Share. The Participation Shares are not shares in SurancePlus and shall have no preemptive right or conversion rights. The Participation Shares solely confer contractual rights against SurancePlus as contained in the PSIC.

The net proceeds from the offer and sale of the Participation Shares will be used by SurancePlus to purchase one or more participating notes of Oxbridge Re NS, an affiliated Cayman Islands licensed reinsurance entity, and the proceeds from the sale of such participating notes will be invested in collateralized reinsurance contracts to be underwritten by Oxbridge Re NS. In a loss free year the holders of the Participation Shares will be entitled to proceeds from the payment of the participating notes in the amount of a preferred return equal to the initial Participation Share price, plus 20%, and then 80% of any proceeds in excess of the amount necessary to pay the preferred return.

The EpsilonCat Re tokens are being offered to accredited investors in the United States by SurancePlus under Rule 506(c) of SEC Regulation D and to non-US investors pursuant to Regulation S of the US Securities Act 1933, as amended. Assuming no casualty losses to properties reinsured by Oxbridge Re’s reinsurance subsidiaries, EpsilonCat Re token investors are expected to receive a targeted annualized return of 42%. Investors in last year’s DeltaCat Re token are poised to realize returns exceeding 45%, surpassing our initial expectations of 42%. This achievement is particularly noteworthy, given the challenges posed by Hurricane Idalia, which made landfall in Florida as a Category 3 hurricane in 2023.

“We are particularly enthusiastic about the prospects of our venture into RWA tokenization and the direction it sets for our company. Through strategic initiatives undertaken this year, we are positioning ourselves for substantial growth within our SurancePlus subsidiary as a premier RWA Web3-focused entity,” commented Oxbridge Re Holdings President and Chief Executive Officer Jay Madhu. “Further reinforcing our strategic vision, Blackrock has announced its intention to tokenize $10 trillion of its assets. Concurrently, we witness the steady adoption of blockchain technology across traditional financial institutions and asset classes, including fiat currencies, equities, government bonds, and real estate. As pioneers in the RWA market, we are energized by the transformative potential of our repositioning and the expansion into new business lines, which we believe will create significant value for our shareholders.”
