The owner of MoviePass tumbles to a new low

Markets Insider

MoviePass owner Helios & Matheson tumbled to a fresh low of $US0.12 a share on Monday, down more than 18%.

Shares were trading at almost $US2.50 apiece at the end of April, when the company said it had $US15.5 million of cash on hand, but that a “$US300 million equity line of credit” would keep it afloat through for 17 months.

Over the past 11 months, the company has been issuing a bunch of new shares in an effort to raise capital. Since August 15, the number of shares outstanding has exploded by 3,429% from 7 million to nearly 250 million at the end June.

The company has proposed a reverse stock split in an effort to boost its share price above the Nasdaq’s minimum requirement of $US1. The failure to reclaim that level would eventually lead to its delisting.

HMNY has lost 98.29% this year.
