Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward Looking Statements

This communication contains certain "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements regarding Helix's or MoonLake's expectations, hopes, beliefs, intentions or strategies regarding the future including, without limitation, statements regarding: the timing of the proposed Business Combination and the execution of certain actions related thereto. In addition, any statements that refer to projections, forecasts, or other characterizations of future events or circumstances, including any underlying assumptions, are forward-looking statements. The words "anticipate," "believe," "continue," "could," "estimate," "expect," "intend," "may," "might," "plan," "possible," "potential," "predict," "project," "should," "would" and similar expressions may identify forward-looking statements, but the absence of these words does not mean that statement is not forward looking.

Forward-looking statements are based on current expectations and assumptions that, while considered reasonable by Helix and its management, and MoonLake and its management, as the case may be, are inherently uncertain. New risks and uncertainties may emerge from time to time, and it is not possible to predict all risks and uncertainties. Factors that may cause actual results to differ materially from current expectations include, but are not limited to: (i) the risk that the proposed Business Combination may not be completed in a timely manner or at all, which may adversely affect the price of Helix's securities, (ii) the failure to satisfy the conditions to the consummation of the transaction, including the approval of the Business Combination Agreement by the shareholders of Helix, the satisfaction of the minimum amount of the Available Closing Date Cash following any redemptions by Helix's public shareholders and the receipt of certain governmental and regulatory approvals, (iii) the lack of a third party valuation in determining whether or not to pursue the proposed transaction, (iv) the occurrence of any event, change or other circumstance that could give rise to the termination of the Business Combination Agreement, (v) the effect of the announcement or pendency of the transaction on the business relationships, operating results, and business generally of MoonLake, (vi) risks that the proposed transaction disrupts current plans and operations of MoonLake, (vii) the outcome of any legal proceedings that may be instituted against MoonLake or Helix related to the agreement or the proposed transaction, (viii) the ability to maintain the listing of Helix's securities on Nasdaq or another national securities exchange, (ix) changes in the competitive and regulated industries in which MoonLake operates, variations in operating performance across competitors, changes in laws and regulations affecting the business of MoonLake, and changes in the combined capital structure, and (x) costs related to the transaction and the failure to realize anticipated benefits of the transaction or to realize projected results and underlying assumptions, including with respect to anticipated shareholder redemptions.

The foregoing list of factors is not exhaustive. You should carefully consider the foregoing factors and the other risks and uncertainties described in the "Risk Factors" section of the proxy materials discussed above, and other documents filed by Helix from time to time with the SEC. These filings identify and address other important risks and uncertainties that could cause actual events and results to differ materially from those contained in the forward-looking statements.
