MoviePass-parent Helios & Matheson is set to shut down permanently on Saturday

MoviePass Inc.'s parent Helios & Matheson Analytics Inc. is set to close its business permanently on Saturday and is considering a sale of its assets, including its Moviefone and MoviePass Films business. Attempts to revive the embattled subscription-movie service have apparently failed, with the company on July 4 announcing that its service would be temporarily interrupted in order to work on an "improved version" of its mobile app Inc. The decision was a bad omen as it came during the busiest time for the movie business. In March, Helios & Matheson raised some $6 million in financing to support MoviePass, including its technology. The once-highflying company had lost nearly all of its value over the past year. Shares of HMNY, a reference to the company's trading symbol, are down 89% so far in the 2019, according to FactSet data. By comparison, the S&P 500 index is up nearly 20% so far this year and the Dow Jones Industrial Average is up 16.7% over the same period. HMNY acquired MoviePass in 2017, a service with just 20,000 subscribers at the time. The operator cut MoviePass's monthly fee to $9.95 from up to $50 a month, and its subscriber base ballooned, crossing the 3-million mark in June of 2018, MarketWatch reported last year. However, the burden of delivering cheap movies proved challenging for the company.

Retail sales rose faster than expected in August, increasing by 0.4%. Investors also saw signs that Washington and Beijing were moving towards a more constructive stance on trade negotiations. The European Central Bank announced a full stimulus package on Thursday, including rate cuts and the restart of an open-ended bond purchasing program.
