Share:

Draper Oakwood Technology Acquisition, Inc. ("DOTA") (NASDAQ: "DOTA,"
"DOTAU," "DOTAR" and "DOTAW") and Reebonz Limited ("Reebonz"), a leading
online luxury marketplace and platform in the Asia Pacific region based
in Singapore, announced today that they have entered into a definitive
business combination agreement (the "Business Combination Agreement"),
pursuant to which DOTA and Reebonz will become subsidiaries of a newly
created Cayman Islands exempted company, DOTA Holdings Limited ("RBZ").
Following the completion of the transaction, RBZ will be renamed Reebonz
Holding Limited. It is expected that RBZ will apply for listing of its
ordinary shares on the NASDAQ Stock Market under the ticker "RBZ". The
combined company will continue to be led by Reebonz's experienced
management team under the leadership of Chief Executive Officer and
co-founder Samuel Lim.

Reebonz (pronounced "ribbons") is a leading online luxury marketplace
and platform in the Asia Pacific region for buying and selling new and
pre-owned products. Founded in 2009 by entrepreneurs Samuel Lim, Daniel
Lim and Benjamin Han, Reebonz has attracted over 5.5 million members,
with over 350 employees and business operations in ten countries
including Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Thailand,
Australia, South Korea, China, and the USA. In 2017, Reebonz achieved
S$349 million in gross merchandise value.

In connection with the proposed transaction, Tim Draper, Senior Advisor
to DOTA, states "Reebonz is a leading online luxury brand in the Asia
Pacific region. The Reebonz leadership team is extraordinary and has
developed a cutting-edge technology and platform. Authentication of
pre-owned luxury items using the blockchain is just one of many high
impact innovations Reebonz is pioneering to improve the luxury shopping
experience for customers across Asia Pacific. We believe that the
capital and the Nasdaq listing will help Reebonz continue to build an
outstanding brand."

According to Samuel Lim, co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of
Reebonz, "We are excited to partner with DOTA to continue to deliver on
our mission of creating the easiest way to buy and sell luxury goods. We
are thankful to our shareholders for their continuous support for this
transaction. Operating as an eco-system for new and pre-owned luxury
fashion, where buyers become sellers and sellers become buyers, we offer
a trusted way of accessing luxury fashion where few choices existed.
Through our data, we are able to offer predictive analytics,
personalization and dynamic pricing which increases engagement and
enhances the lifetime value of our customers. We emphasize on providing
localization and will continue to scale the business across Southeast
Asia and Asia Pacific and provide our members a differentiated
omni-channel, mobile, and social experience when they shop with Reebonz."

Aamer Sarfraz, CEO of DOTA, commented "We are excited to partner with
Sam and the fabulous team at Reebonz. We set up Draper Oakwood
Technology Acquisition to find and partner with exactly this type of
best-of-breed team. In the process, we looked at many prospective
opportunities, but Reebonz stood out big time - they've got the brand,
the track record, the technology, and the vision to do great things once
they have access to the capital markets."

Transaction Details

Upon the closing under the Business Combination Agreement, existing
equity holders, option holders and warrant holders of Reebonz will roll
all of their equity into RBZ (with the options and warrants being
assumed by RBZ), resulting in ownership of RBZ that is currently
anticipated to be approximately 70% by Reebonz shareholders and the
holders of in-the-money Reebonz options (if such options are exercised
on a net basis), assuming that no DOTA public shareholders redeem their
DOTA shares in connection with the closing. The value of the securities
deliverable by RBZ to Reebonz shareholders and holders of in-the-money
Reebonz options is based on an enterprise value of Reebonz of $252
million, subject to adjustment for the net debt of Reebonz and its
subsidiaries. Additionally, the Reebonz shareholders and RBZ management
may receive up to a total of 2.5 million additional shares from RBZ
after the closing pursuant to an earnout if certain consolidated revenue
and RBZ share price targets are met in calendar years 2019 and 2020
(subject to additional lookback provisions). The consummation of the
business combination is subject to the terms and conditions set forth in
the Business Combination Agreement, including the approval of the
business combination and related matters by the stockholders of DOTA,
and is currently expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2018. The
description of the transaction contained herein is only a summary and is
qualified in its entirety by reference to the definitive Business
Combination Agreement, a copy of which will be filed by DOTA with the
