Solaris Signs Definitive Agreements to Acquire migme, Building on Previous PixelMags Acquisition

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 04/20/17 -- Solaris Power Cells, Inc. ("Solaris" or the "Company") (OTCQB: SPCL), a growth focused digital media holding company engaged in the acquisition and management of overlooked and undervalued media properties, announces that it has signed definitive agreements to acquire migme (ASX: MIG) -- one of Asia's fastest growing social media platforms, with approximately 35 million monthly active users (MAU's).

Solaris is adding to its media technology holdings, notably distribution-as-a-service company PixelMags, which takes publishers' content and automatically formats and natively distributes across platforms.

"This agreement shows our acquisition strategy is starting to yield positive results. After nearly ten months since acquiring PixelMags, we're announcing our second acquisition and remain excited about the combined potential," stated Neil Kleinman, CEO of Solaris. "This acquisition will add one of Asia's fastest growing social platforms. Approximately 110 employees will be added to the Solaris team who will play a pivotal role in the future success of the company."

migme is a global digital media company with a large footprint in Southeast Asia, the fastest growing global mobile market. The platform allows stars and fans to interact together in thousands of digital chat rooms, driving longer user sessions than most other social networks. With a quarterly growth rate of 30%, migme is soon expected to join the ranks of Asia's largest social media peers like Meitu in China and Hike in India.

Under the definitive agreements, Solaris will acquire all issued capital in Project Goth, Inc., a subsidiary of migme, which owns the operating companies, including the company's portfolio of intellectual property. Solaris aims to integrate migme's branded app and other properties -- dating app LoveByte, artist management community alivenotdead, social news site Hipwee and ecommerce services through Sold and Shopdeca.

The agreement is subject to Solaris becoming current in its financial and SEC reporting obligations, and other conditions. Management believes the transaction will close by June 15th.

Steven Goh, CEO of migme, said, "The proposed transaction provides an opportunity for migme to be more fairly valued on an exchange that better understands technology companies, with a clear peer group to be valued against. We look forward to working with Neil and the Solaris team in creating value for all shareholders."
