Amersfoort, March 10, 2017-- Mars One Ventures AG announced that the share
capital increased by 478,887,500 shares for the takeover. The Swiss Commercial
Register has approved the capital increase based on an independent valuation
report by a Swiss auditor, valuing Mars One at US$ 389,300,000 (which is the
equivalent to EUR 368,742,600 at the current EUR/USD exchange rate of 1.06).

"We're pleased that the capital increase of Mars One Ventures AG was carried
out, completing the transaction for the takeover and actually thrilled with the
valuation of our company" Bas Lansdorp, CEO and co-founder of Mars One, said
today. "The valuation is based on an independent review of our revenue
projections, based on previous results, and results in a value per share of
about EUR0.74, which is well above the current share price at the Frankfurt
Stock Exchange."

Over the last years, the whole space industry has benefited from the increased
interest in Mars exploration and because of that Mars One, has experienced a
significant increase in interest for its mission to Mars. An important factor in
the increase of public interest are the efforts of upcoming space countries,
including India's successful orbit insertion in 2014 at a fraction of the costs
of previous Mars mission, and UAE's plans to launch a Mars spacecraft in 2020.
Other important factors include the significant technical achievements of
several private space companies such as SpaceX and Blue Origin, the successes of
movies and TV series, such as 'The Martian', and National Geographic's 'Mars'
Series. Finally, there is the continued interest in existing Mars missions like
ESA's ExoMars mission and NASA's active orbiters and rover missions. "The
increased interest in Mars programs has a major positive impact on the business
potential of Mars One Ventures, as it is based on the public interest for and
therefore commercial value of Mars One's mission to Mars," explains Lansdorp.
