H.C. Wainwright & Co. acted as Helios' exclusive placement agent for the
offering. Palladium Capital Advisors, LLC served as Helios' financial
advisor for the offering.

The closing of the offering occurred on March 25, 2019.

"We are building the infrastructure, data and tools that we believe will
power the next generation of MoviePass," said Ted Farnsworth, Chairman
and CEO of Helios. "We believe this new funding will allow us to double
down on our development of transformative technology, while fueling our
continued expansion. Our long-term vision is for MoviePass to be the
nation's most popular movie-theater ticketing platform."

In connection with this new financing, Helios entered into definitive
agreements with certain institutional investors for the purchase of
60,000 shares ("Preferred Shares") of Helios' Series B Preferred Stock,
which are convertible into 1,000,020,000 shares of its common stock, and
accompanying Series F-1 Preferred Stock Purchase Warrants ("Series F-1
Warrants") to purchase 59,760 Preferred Shares, which are convertible
into 996,019,920 shares of its common stock, and Series F-2 Preferred
Stock Purchase Warrants ("Series F-2 Warrants") to purchase 60,240
Preferred Shares, which are convertible into 1,004,020,080 shares of its
common stock, in a registered direct offering. The aggregate gross
proceeds of the offering were $6.0 million. Each Preferred Share is
convertible into 16,667 shares of Helios' common stock. The Series F-1
Warrants will expire 5 years from the date of issuance. The Series F-2
Warrants will be exercisable for 5 years from the date Helios obtains
stockholder approval of a reverse stock split or an increase in its
authorized common stock to allow for the issuance of the shares of
common stock underlying the Preferred Shares issuable upon exercise of
the Series F-2 Warrants. The exercise price of the Series F-1 Warrants
and the Series F-2 Warrants is $100.00 per Preferred Share, subject to
downward adjustment in the event of certain subsequent financings and a
potential downward adjustment under certain circumstances following a
reverse stock split. Concurrently with the issuance of the Preferred
Shares, the Series F-1 Warrants and the Series F-2 Warrants, Helios
entered into amendments with the holders of its Series C Warrants and
Series D Warrants to purchase an aggregate of 666,666,668 shares of
common stock, whereby the exercise price of those warrants has been
reduced from $0.0163 to $0.01 per share of common stock.

Helios has set March 25, 2019 as the record date for a special meeting
of its stockholders to approve a reverse stock split or an increase in
its authorized share capital.

In addition to using the net proceeds from the offering for working
capital purposes of Helios, MoviePass and MoviePass Films, Helios will
use the net proceeds to redeem approximately $870,000 of Helios'
outstanding non-convertible senior notes that were issued on October 4,
2018 and December 18, 2018, and to pay certain fees due to the placement
agent and financial advisor and other transaction expenses. The
potential gross proceeds from the Series F-1 Warrants and the Series F-2
Warrants, if fully exercised on a cash basis, will be approximately
$12.0 million. No assurance can be given that any of the Series F-1
Warrants or the Series F-2 Warrants will be exercised.
