Drone Aviation Holding to Focus on Tethered Aerostat and Drone Business

JACKSONVILLE, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 06/05/14 -- Drone Aviation Holding Corp., (formerly MacroSolve Inc.) (PINKSHEETS: DRNE) a Nevada corporation (the "Company"), announced today that it entered into a share exchange agreement on June 3, 2014 pursuant to which all of the capital stock of Drone Aviation Corp., a privately held Nevada corporation ("Drone Aviation"), were exchanged for shares of Common Stock and Series D Convertible Preferred Stock of the Company on a one-for-one basis (the "Share Exchange") causing Drone Aviation to become a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company.

During May 2014 Drone Aviation became an aerospace company principally focused on developing and producing tethered drones and tethered aerostats for military and commercial applications. Drone Aviation's flagship products the Blimp in a Box™ (BiB) and the Winch Aerostat Small Platform (WASP) acquired in the LTAS Acquisition, are currently utilized by various military and commercial customers as a safe, effective surveillance and communications system. In addition, Drone Aviation is leveraging its experience from military applications to develop specialized drones that utilize a unique tethering technology where all data, controls and endurance are built into the tether, thus permitting the drones to fly within FAA guidelines.

The Company's new management team includes Felicia Hess as its Chief Executive Officer and Dan Erdberg as its Chief Operating Officer and Kendall Carpenter remains the Company's Chief Financial Officer. The Company, now headquartered in Jacksonville, Florida, will add to its existing businesses principally involving development and monetization of patented technologies the drone business acquired through LTAS. As previously reported in the Company's SEC filings the Company has been principally focused on ventures related to intellectual property licensing and enforcement of its mobile app patent which on March 7, 2014 received an unfavorable ex parte reexamination office action rejecting all claims, which it intends to challenge.

Simultaneous with the closing of the Share Exchange, the Company sold 2.7 million units of its securities, consisting of one share of Series E Preferred Stock and one three year warrant to purchase one share of Common Stock at an exercise price of $1.00, in a private placement to accredited investors, at a price of $0.50 per unit, resulting in gross proceeds to the Company of $1,350,000.

The Company's Chief Executive Officer, Felicia Hess, said, "The completion of these transactions was a key piece in our strategic plan to penetrate the military and commercial aerostat and drone space. We believe tethered aerostats and drones are safe, lower cost yet effective systems, that comply with current FAA regulations, for various military and commercial applications. We expect the capital raised from this financing will assist us to expand our customer base and allow us to accelerate our research and development of our next generation tethered aerostats and drones."

The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the offering principally for sales and marketing, research and development, and general and administrative expenses.
