Universal Express Announces Jackson Auction Dividend

NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 22, 2007 -- Universal Express Inc. (OTCBB: USXP), today insured the Jackson Family Memorabilia Collection's movement, and it has "left the building" to Las Vegas. We have previously valued the auction estimates from $30,000,000 to $200,000,000.

No one can predict the outcome of this auction, but I thought it prudent to inform our shareholders of the percentages we have budgeted for them. We have estimated a cash dividend of at least 20% of the net proceeds to our shareholders and we have estimated at least 15% of our net proceeds to a buy back of Universal Express' stock on the open market.

There are many factors and collectors which will determine the final results. Yet, at the request of many I thought these percentages needed to be memorialized.

The Charities that will also benefit from this auction are as follows:

St. Jude Children's Research Hospital
Make A Wish Foundation
Boys and Girls Clubs of America
Ronald McDonald House
Save the Children
