SPYR, Inc. (SPYR) Retains BUYINS.NET to Surveil Market Makers and Short Sellers

-Approximately 28 Million Total Shares Shorted Since September 2009

-Short Squeeze Under Way As Stock Is Above $0.423 "SqueezeTrigger"

DENVER, March 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- SPYR, INC. (SPYR), a holding company with wholly owned subsidiaries in both the mobile game & app development and publishing industry, and in the restaurant industry announced today that BUYINS.NET, http://www.buyins.net, a leading provider of Regulation SHO compliance monitoring, short sale trading statistics and market integrity surveillance, has initiated coverage on SPYR Inc. (OTC: SPYR) after releasing the latest short sale data through March 21, 2017. BUYINS.NET found the following: (a) The total aggregate number of shares of SPYR's common stock shorted since September 2009 is approximately 28 million shares; (b) Approximately 32.60% of daily trading volume is short selling; The SqueezeTrigger price for all SPYR shares shorted is $0.423; and, (c) Shares of SPYR are above the SqueezeTrigger Price. According to BUYINS.NET, a short squeeze has begun.

Regulation SHO requires bona-fide market-making activities to only include making purchases and sales in roughly comparable amounts. The SEC stated that bona-fide market-making DOES NOT include activity that is related to speculative selling strategies for the investment purposes of the broker-dealer, and that is disproportionate to the usual market making patterns or practices of the broker-dealer in that security. Likewise, where a market-maker posts continually at or near the best offer, but does not also post at or near the best bid, the market-maker's activities would not generally qualify as bona-fide market-making. Moreover, a market-maker that continually executes short sales away from its posted quotes would generally not be considered to be engaging in bona-fide market-making.

Based upon BUYIN's "Squeeze Trigger," and "FrictionFactor" research on SPYR, 58% of the 38 previous trading days indicated negative or bearish-biased market activity that in BUYIN's opinion is indicative of unfair market making.
