MoviePass CEO Mitch Lowe will join CNN's Chief Business Correspondent Christine Romans on "Markets Now" on Wednesday for a live interview. He'll have a lot to talk about.

The struggling company has been rapidly changing its business model in an effort to keep investors from selling off stock. So far, it hasn't had much luck.

On Monday, the company announced that it will limit customers to three movies per month — down from one per day. It also walked back its decision to raise prices from $9.99 to $14.99 per month, among other moves to burn less cash.

The efforts helped boost shares of parent company Helios and Matheson slightly, but the stock has plunged this year, from $39 last October to just 8 cents last month. The company approved a reverse split — a cosmetic change that boosted the stock 250-fold, back up to $21. Since then it's fallen all the way back to 7 cents.
