In November 2006, SilverJet acquired FlyJet Limited. The purpose for Silverjet’s acquisition,
was to take control of the 767 aircraft contracted to C First Class, crucial if SilverJet was to be
operational in time for the company’s launch date deadline of Jan. 25, 2007 and to satisfy goals
promised to investors and shareholders. SilverJet subsequently appropriated the dedicated 767
aircraft for it’s own purposes including a deposit of $750,000 in direct violation and malicious
disregard of all C First Class rights.
Shortly thereafter, the dedicated C First Class 767 aircraft served as SilverJet’s launch aircraft for
international flights between London, Luton and New York, Newark airports and continues to
provide essential service and profit for SilverJet on those routes.
“SilverJet had agreed to provide alternative 767 ER aircraft , a break up fee of $1million and
additional compensation to mitigate and ameliorate the harm done to C First Class Corp. but has
not honoured their agreement ” said spokesperson Gabrielle Griswold for C First Class . “The
filing of our lawsuit is in direct response to the dismissive and arrogant attitude of SilverJet
leadership, their obvious disregard in honouring commitments.”
Companies listed and traded on the London Stock exchange, in compliance with AIM Rule 26,
must disclose all relevant information that could impact share value. Yet ” SilverJet has not made
any disclosures regarding this matter,” confirmed C First Class.
