CERTIFICATE OF DESIGNATIONS, PREFERENCES AND RIGHTS OF THE

HELIOS AND MATHESON ANALYTICS INC.

I, Stuart Benson, hereby certify that I am the Secretary of Helios and Matheson Analytics Inc. (the “Company”), a corporation incorporated and existing under the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware (the “DGCL”) and further do hereby certify:

That pursuant to the authority expressly conferred upon the Board of Directors of the Company (the “Board”) by the Company’s Certificate of Incorporation, as amended (the “Certificate of Incorporation”), and Section 151(g) of the DGCL, the Board on June 18, 2018 adopted the following resolution determining it desirable and in the best interests of the Company and its stockholders for the Company, pursuant to this Certificate of Designations, Preferences and Rights of the Series A Preferred Stock of Helios and Matheson Analytics Inc. (this “Certificate of Designations”), to create a series of shares of preferred stock designated as “Series A Preferred Stock”, none of which shares have been issued:

RESOLVED, that pursuant to the authority expressly vested in the Board, in accordance with the provisions of the Certificate of Incorporation, a series of preferred stock, par value $0.01 per share, of the Company be and hereby is created, and that the designation and number of shares thereof and the voting and other powers, preferences and relative, participating, optional, special or other rights of the shares of such series and the qualifications, limitations and restrictions thereof are as follows:

TERMS OF SERIES A PREFERRED STOCK

1.      Designation and Number of Shares. There shall hereby be created and established a series of preferred stock of the Company designated as “Series A Preferred Stock” (the “Preferred Shares”). The authorized number of Preferred Shares shall be 20,500 shares. Each Preferred Share shall have a par value of $0.01. Capitalized terms not defined herein shall have the meaning as set forth in Section 23 below.

2.      Ranking. Except to the extent that the holders of at least a majority of the outstanding Preferred Shares (the “Required Holders”) expressly consent to the creation of Parity Stock (as defined below) or Senior Preferred Stock (as defined below) in accordance with Section 8, all shares of capital stock of the Company shall be junior in rank to all Preferred Shares with respect to the preferences as to distributions and payments upon the liquidation, dissolution and winding up of the Company (such junior stock is referred to herein collectively as “Junior Stock”). The rights of all such shares of capital stock of the Company shall be subject to the rights, powers, preferences and privileges of the Preferred Shares. Without limiting any other provision of this Certificate of Designations, without the prior express consent of the Required Holders, voting separate as a single class, the Company shall not, directly or indirectly (including, without limitation, through one or more Subsidiaries), hereafter authorize or issue (x) any additional or other shares of capital stock that is (i) of senior rank to the Preferred Shares in respect of the preferences as to distributions and payments upon the liquidation, dissolution and winding up of the Company (collectively, the “Senior Preferred Stock”) or (ii) of pari passu rank to the Preferred Shares in respect of the preferences as to distributions and payments upon the liquidation, dissolution and winding up of the Company (collectively, the “Parity Stock”) or (y) any Junior Stock having a maturity date (or any other date requiring redemption, repurchase or repayment of such shares of Junior Stock) that is prior to June 30, 2020. In the event of the merger or consolidation of the Company with or into another corporation, the Preferred Shares shall maintain their relative rights, powers, designations, privileges and preferences provided for herein and no such merger or consolidation shall cause or provide for a result inconsistent therewith. Any act or transaction entered into or taken in contravention of this Section 2 shall be null and void ab initio and of no force or effect.

3.      Registration. At the time of issuance of any Preferred Shares hereunder, the applicable Holder may, by written request (including by electronic-mail) to the Company, elect to receive such Preferred Shares in the form of one or more certificates, if any, representing the Preferred Shares (the “Preferred Share Certificates”). The Company (or the Company’s transfer agent (the “Transfer Agent”), as custodian for the Preferred Shares, if applicable) shall maintain a register (the “Register”) for the recordation of the names and addresses of the Holders of each Preferred Share and the Stated Value of the Preferred Shares and whether the Preferred Shares are held by such Holder in the form of Preferred Share Certificates (the “Registered Preferred Shares”). Except as otherwise prohibited by applicable law, the entries in the Register shall be conclusive and binding for all purposes absent manifest error.

4.      Rights Upon Fundamental Transactions. The Company shall not enter into or be party to a Fundamental Transaction unless the Successor Entity assumes in writing all of the obligations of the Company under this Certificate of Designations and the other Transaction Documents in accordance with the provisions of this Section 4 pursuant to written agreements in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Required Holders and approved by the Required Holders prior to such Fundamental Transaction, including agreements to deliver to each holder of Preferred Shares in exchange for such Preferred Shares a security of the Successor Entity evidenced by a written instrument substantially similar in form and substance to this Certificate of Designations. Upon the occurrence of any Fundamental Transaction, the Successor Entity shall succeed to, and be substituted for (so that from and after the date of such Fundamental Transaction, the provisions of this Certificate of Designations and the other Transaction Documents referring to the “Company” shall refer instead to the Successor Entity), and may exercise every right and power of the Company and shall assume all of the obligations of the Company under this Certificate of Designations and the other Transaction Documents with the same effect as if such Successor Entity had been named as the Company herein and therein. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Required Holders may elect, by delivery of written notice to the Company, to waive this Section 4 to permit the Fundamental Transaction without compliance with the foregoing provisions of this Section 4. The provisions of this Section 4 shall apply similarly and equally to successive Fundamental Transactions and shall be applied without regard to any limitations on the redemption of the Preferred Shares.

5.                  Redemptions.

(a)                Company Optional Redemption. With respect to any given Holder and the Preferred Shares held by such Holder, until such time as at least the Initial Unrestricted Principal (as defined in the applicable Note) of the Note issued to such Holder (or, if the Holder is not a Buyer, then the Note issued to the Buyer of such Preferred Shares held by the Holder) has been paid or converted in accordance with the terms thereof, the Preferred Shares held by such Holder shall not be redeemable at the option of the Company. From and after such time, the Company shall, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, have the right to redeem all, or any part, of the Preferred Shares then held by such Holder on the applicable Company Optional Redemption Date (each as defined below) (a “Company Optional Redemption”). Each Preferred Share subject to redemption pursuant to this Section 5(a) shall be redeemed by the Company in cash at a price per share (the “Company Optional Redemption Price”) equal to the Redemption Price thereof. The Company may exercise its right to require redemption under this Section 5(a) by delivering a written notice thereof by facsimile or electronic mail and overnight courier to all, but not less than all, of the Holders eligible to have their Preferred Shares redeemed at the option of the Company pursuant to this Section 5(a) (the “Company Optional Redemption Notice” and the date all such Holders received such notice is referred to as the “Company Optional Redemption Notice Date”). Each Company Optional Redemption Notice shall be irrevocable. The Company Optional Redemption Notice shall (x) state the date on which the Company Optional Redemption shall occur (the “Company Optional Redemption Date”) which date shall not be less than two (2) Trading Days nor more than twenty (20) Trading Days following the Company Optional Redemption Notice Date and (y) state the aggregate number of Preferred Shares subject to redemption from each Holder (which shall be allocated, pro rata, to each Holder whose Preferred Shares are subject to redemption). The Company, in its sole discretion, may pay the Company Optional Redemption Price in cash or shares of Common Stock valued at the closing bid price of the Common Stock reported by Bloomberg LP on the Company Optional Redemption Date on the Principal Market (or, if the Principal Market is not the principal trading market for the Common Stock, then on the principal Eligible Market on which the Common Stock is then traded, if any, or, if the Common Stock is not traded on any Eligible Market at such time, then at the fair market value of the Common Stock determined by the Board in good faith).

(b)               Beneficial Ownership Limitation. The Company shall not pay any Redemption Price hereunder in shares of Common Stock (each, a “Share Payment”) pursuant to the terms and conditions of this Certificate of Designations and any such Share Payment shall be null and void and treated as if never made, to the extent that after giving effect to such Share Payment, such Holder together with the other Attribution Parties collectively would beneficially own in excess of 4.99% (the “Maximum Percentage”) of the shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately after giving effect to such Share Payment.  For purposes of the foregoing sentence, the aggregate number of shares of Common Stock beneficially owned by such Holder and the other Attribution Parties shall include the number of shares of Common Stock held by such Holder and all other Attribution Parties plus the number of shares of Common Stock issuable in such Share Payment with respect to which the determination of such sentence is being made, but shall exclude shares of Common Stock which would be issuable upon (A) conversion of the remaining, nonconverted Notes beneficially owned by such Holder or any of the other Attribution Parties and (B) exercise or conversion of the unexercised or nonconverted portion of any other securities of the Company (including, without limitation, any convertible notes, convertible preferred stock or warrants, including the Preferred Shares) or any other Share Payment hereunder of any Preferred Shares beneficially owned by such Holder or any other Attribution Party subject to a limitation on conversion or exercise or Share Payments analogous to the limitation contained in this Section 5(b).  For purposes of this Section 5(b), beneficial ownership shall be calculated in accordance with Section 13(d) of the 1934 Act.  For purposes of determining the number of outstanding shares of Common Stock a Holder may acquire upon a Share Payment without exceeding the Maximum Percentage, such Holder may rely on the number of outstanding shares of Common Stock as reflected in (x) the Company’s most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K, Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, Current Report on Form 8-K or other public filing with the SEC, as the case may be, (y) a more recent public announcement by the Company or (z) any other written notice by the Company or the Transfer Agent, if any, setting forth the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding (the “Reported Outstanding Share Number”).  If the Company delivers a Company Optional Redemption Notice at a time when the actual number of outstanding shares of Common Stock is less than the Reported Outstanding Share Number, the Company shall notify such Holder in writing of the number of shares of Common Stock then outstanding and, to the extent that such Redemption Notice if satisfied in a Share Payment would otherwise cause such Holder’s beneficial ownership, as determined pursuant to this Section 5(b), to exceed the Maximum Percentage, the Company will notify the Holder of a reduced number of shares of Common Stock to be purchased pursuant to such Share Payment.  For any reason at any time, upon the written or oral request of any Holder, the Company shall within one (1) Business Day confirm orally and in writing or by electronic mail to such Holder the number of shares of Common Stock then outstanding.  In any case, the number of outstanding shares of Common Stock shall be determined after giving effect to the Share Payment, conversion or exercise of securities of the Company, including such Preferred Shares, by such Holder and any other Attribution Party since the date as of which the Reported Outstanding Share Number was reported.  In the event that the issuance of shares of Common Stock to a Holder upon a Share Payment would otherwise result in such Holder and the other Attribution Parties being deemed to beneficially own, in the aggregate, more than the Maximum Percentage of the number of outstanding shares of Common Stock (as determined under Section 13(d) of the 1934 Act), the number of shares so issued by which such Holder’s and the other Attribution Parties’ aggregate beneficial ownership exceeds the Maximum Percentage (the “Excess Shares”) shall be deemed null and void and shall be cancelled ab initio, and such Holder shall not have the power to vote or to transfer the Excess Shares and, in lieu of issuance and delivery to such Holder of such Excess Shares, the Company shall automatically issue to such Holder a right to receive such Excess Shares (each a “Right”), in a form reasonably satisfactory to the Company and such Holder, with a restriction of exercise of such Right substantially in the form of this Section 5(b).  Upon delivery of a written notice to the Company, any Holder may from time to time increase (with such increase not effective until the sixty-first (61st) day after delivery of such notice) or decrease the Maximum Percentage of such Holder to any other percentage not in excess of 9.99% as specified in such notice; provided that (i) any such increase in the Maximum Percentage will not be effective until the sixty-first (61st) day after such notice is delivered to the Company and (ii) any such increase or decrease will apply only to such Holder and the other Attribution Parties and not to any other Holder.  For purposes of clarity, the shares of Common Stock issuable to a Holder pursuant to the terms of this Certificate of Designations in excess of the Maximum Percentage shall not be deemed to be beneficially owned by such Holder for any purpose including for purposes of Section 13(d) or Rule 16a-1(a)(1) of the 1934 Act.  No prior inability to convert such Preferred Shares pursuant to this paragraph shall have any effect on the applicability of the provisions of this paragraph with respect to any subsequent determination of convertibility.  The provisions of this paragraph shall be construed and implemented in a manner otherwise than in strict conformity with the terms of this Section 5(b) to the extent necessary to correct this paragraph (or any portion of this paragraph) which may be defective or inconsistent with the intended beneficial ownership limitation contained in this Section 5(b) or to make changes or supplements necessary or desirable to properly give effect to such limitation.  The limitation contained in this paragraph may not be waived and shall apply to a successor holder of such Preferred Shares.

6.                  Noncircumvention. The Company hereby covenants and agrees that, except with the affirmative vote or written consent of the Required Holders given pursuant to and in accordance with the terms of this Certificate of Designations, the Company will not, by amendment of the Certificate of Incorporation, its Bylaws (as defined in the Securities Purchase Agreement) or through any reorganization, transfer of assets, consolidation, merger, scheme of arrangement, dissolution, issue or sale of securities, or any other voluntary action, avoid or seek to avoid the observance or performance of any of the terms of this Certificate of Designations, and will at all times in good faith carry out all the provisions of this Certificate of Designations and take all action as may be reasonably required to protect the rights of the Holders hereunder against dilution or impairment.

7.                  Voting Rights.

(a)                Except as otherwise provided by the Certificate of Incorporation or required by applicable law, each Holder, in its capacity as a holder of Preferred Shares, as such, shall be entitled to 3,205 votes per share (subject to adjustment for any stock split, stock dividend, stock combination, reclassification, recapitalization, or like event) on all matters on which stockholders are entitled to vote generally, voting together with the Common Stock (and any other class or series of capital stock of the Company entitled to vote generally) as a single class. As to any matters as to which the Preferred Shares shall be entitled to vote as a separate class, each holder of Series A Preferred Stock, as such, shall be entitled to one vote for each share of Series A Preferred Stock held by such holder on the record date for determining the holders of Series A Preferred Stock entitled to vote or express consent in writing. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the number of votes that a Holder shall be entitled to cast on any matter submitted to a vote of stockholders generally, when aggregated with any other voting securities of the Company held by such Holder, shall not exceed 19.9% (or such greater percentage allowed by The NASDAQ Capital Market without any stockholder approval requirements) of the outstanding voting power of the Company calculated as of the Subscription Date.

(b)               In addition to rights granted to Holders under applicable law, each Holder shall be entitled to receive the same prior notice of any stockholders’ meeting as is provided to the holders of Common Stock as well as, to the extent such action is solicited by or at the direction of or with the involvement or consent of the Company or submitted by or at the direction of or with the involvement or consent of the Company to the stockholders for their consideration and vote by written consent in lieu of a meeting, prior notice of all stockholder actions (other than actions by one or more of the Holders) to be taken by legally available means in lieu of a meeting (and copies of proxy materials, consent solicitation statements and other information sent to stockholders in connection therewith), all in accordance with the Bylaws and the DGCL.

12.              Reissuance of Preferred Share Certificates.

(a)                Transfer. If any Preferred Shares are to be transferred, the applicable Holder shall surrender the applicable Preferred Share Certificate, if any, to the Company, whereupon the Company will forthwith issue and deliver upon the order of such Holder a new Preferred Share Certificate (in accordance with Section 12(d)), registered as such Holder may request, representing the outstanding number of Preferred Shares being transferred by such Holder and, if less than the entire outstanding number of Preferred Shares is being transferred, a new Preferred Share Certificate (in accordance with Section 12(d)) to such Holder representing the outstanding number of Preferred Shares not being transferred. Such Holder and any assignee, by acceptance of the Preferred Share Certificate, acknowledge and agree that, following redemption of any of the Preferred Shares, the outstanding number of Preferred Shares represented by such Preferred Share Certificate may be less than the number of Preferred Shares stated on the face thereof.

Upon receipt by the Company of evidence reasonably satisfactory to the Company of the loss, theft, destruction or mutilation of a Preferred Share Certificate (as to which a written certification and the indemnification contemplated below shall suffice as such evidence), and, in the case of loss, theft or destruction, of any indemnification undertaking by the applicable Holder to the Company in customary and reasonable form and, in the case of mutilation, upon surrender and cancellation of such Preferred Share Certificate, the Company shall execute and deliver to such Holder a new Preferred Share Certificate (in accordance with Section 12(d)) representing the applicable outstanding number of Preferred Shares.

-7

 

(c)                Preferred Share Certificate Exchangeable for Different Denominations and Forms. Each Preferred Share Certificate is exchangeable, upon the surrender hereof by the applicable Holder at the principal office of the Company, for a new Preferred Share Certificate or Preferred Share Certificate(s) (in accordance with Section 12(d)) representing, in the aggregate, the outstanding number of the Preferred Shares in the original Preferred Share Certificate, and each such new Preferred Share Certificate will represent such portion of such outstanding number of Preferred Shares from the original Preferred Share Certificate as is designated in writing by such Holder at the time of such surrender; provided such number is consistent with the Register.

(d)               Issuance of New Preferred Share Certificate. Whenever the Company is required to issue a new Preferred Share Certificate pursuant to the terms of this Certificate of Designations, such new Preferred Share Certificate (i) shall represent, as indicated on the face of such Preferred Share Certificate, the number of Preferred Shares remaining outstanding (or in the case of a new Preferred Share Certificate being issued pursuant to Section 12(a) or Section 12(c), the number of Preferred Shares designated by such Holder) which, when added to the number of Preferred Shares represented by the other new Preferred Share Certificates, issued in connection with such issuance, does not exceed the number of Preferred Shares remaining outstanding under the original Preferred Share Certificate, immediately prior to such issuance of new Preferred Share Certificate, and (ii) shall have an issuance date, as indicated on the face of such new Preferred Share Certificate, which is the same as the issuance date of the original Preferred Share Certificate; provided same is consistent with the Register.

13.              Remedies, Characterizations, Other Obligations, Breaches and Injunctive Relief. The remedies provided in this Certificate of Designations shall be cumulative and in addition to all other remedies available under this Certificate of Designations and any of the other Transaction Documents (as defined in the Notes), at law or in equity (including a decree of specific performance and/or other injunctive relief), and nothing herein shall limit any Holder’s right to pursue actual and consequential damages for any failure by the Company to comply with the terms of this Certificate of Designations. The Company covenants to each Holder that there shall be no characterization concerning this instrument other than as expressly provided herein. Amounts set forth or provided for herein with respect to payments and the like (and the computation thereof) shall be the amounts to be received by a Holder and shall not, except as expressly provided herein, be subject to any other obligation of the Company (or the performance thereof). The Company acknowledges that a breach by it of its obligations hereunder will cause irreparable harm to the Holders and that the remedy at law for any such breach may be inadequate. The Company therefore agrees that, in the event of any such breach or threatened breach, each Holder shall be entitled, in addition to all other available remedies, to specific performance and/or temporary, preliminary and permanent injunctive or other equitable relief from any court of competent jurisdiction in any such case without the necessity of proving actual damages and without posting a bond or other security. The Company shall provide all information and documentation to a Holder that is requested by such Holder to enable such Holder to confirm the Company’s compliance with the terms and conditions of this Certificate of Designations.

14.              Payment of Collection, Enforcement and Other Costs. If (a) any Preferred Shares are placed in the hands of an attorney for collection or enforcement or is collected or enforced through any legal proceeding or a Holder otherwise takes action to collect amounts due under this Certificate of Designations with respect to the Preferred Shares or to enforce the provisions of this Certificate of Designations or (b) there occurs any bankruptcy, reorganization, receivership of the Company or other proceedings affecting Company creditors’ rights and involving a claim under this Certificate of Designations, then the Company shall pay the costs and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and other expenses) incurred by such Holder for such collection, enforcement or action or in connection with such bankruptcy, reorganization, receivership or other proceeding, including, without limitation, attorneys’ fees and disbursements as and when such costs and expenses are incurred.

15.              Construction; Headings. This Certificate of Designations shall be deemed to be jointly drafted by the Company and the Holders and shall not be construed against any such Person as the drafter hereof. The headings of this Certificate of Designations are for convenience of reference and shall not form part of, or affect the interpretation of, this Certificate of Designations. Unless the context clearly indicates otherwise, each pronoun herein shall be deemed to include the masculine, feminine, neuter, singular and plural forms thereof. The terms “including,” “includes,” “include” and words of like import shall be construed broadly as if followed by the words “without limitation.” The terms “herein,” “hereunder,” “hereof” and words of like import refer to this entire Certificate of Designations instead of just the provision in which they are found. Unless expressly indicated otherwise, all section references are to sections of this Certificate of Designations. Terms used in this Certificate of Designations and not otherwise defined herein, but defined in the other Transaction Documents, shall have the meanings ascribed to such terms on the Initial Issuance Date in such other Transaction Documents unless otherwise consented to in writing by the Required Holders.

16.              Failure or Indulgence Not Waiver.
