Forward-Looking Statements This document and the oral statements made in connection therewith may include forward-looking statements, within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. All statements other than statements of historical fact included in this document or oral statements made in connection therewith that address activities, events, conditions or developments that we expect, believe or anticipate will or may occur in the future are forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements give our current expectations and projections relating to the Company’s financial condition, results of operations, plans, objectives, future performance and business and these statements are not guarantees of future performance. These statements can be identified by the fact that they do not relate strictly to historical or current facts. Forward-looking statements may include the words “anticipate,” “estimate,” “expect,” “project,” “intend,” “plan,” “believe,” “strategy,” “future,” “opportunity,” “may,” “should,” “will,” “would,” “will be,” “will continue,” “will likely result,” and similar expressions. Such forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties that may cause actual events, results or performance to differ materially from those indicated by such statements. Certain of these risks are identified and discussed in the Company’s Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016 under Risk Factors in Part I, Item 1A. These risk factors will be important to consider in determining future results and should be reviewed in their entirety. These forward-looking statements are expressed in good faith, and we believe there is a reasonable basis for them. However, there can be no assurance that the events, results or trends identified in these forward-looking statements will occur or be achieved. Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they are made, and neither we nor the Company will undertake to update any forward-looking statement, except as required by law. Readers should carefully review the statements set forth in the reports, which the Company has filed or will file from time to time with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Executive Summary WMIH Corp. (“WMIH” or the “Company”) has been disciplined in its pursuit of acquisitions and continues to focus on finding an appropriate target company in an effort to maximize long-term value for all stakeholders To preserve access to capital and provide additional time to find, negotiate and complete an accretive acquisition, on December 11, 2017, WMIH Corp. announced an amendment (the “Amendment”) to certain terms of the Company’s issued and outstanding 3.00% Series B Convertible Preferred Stock (the “Series B Preferred”) Absent the Amendment or execution of definitive documentation relating to an Acquisition, 600,000 shares of Series B Preferred would become redeemable on January 5, 2018 A redemption would have material negative consequences for WMIH as it would have depleted most of the Company’s capital resources The Amendment will provide the Company with an additional 21 months to find and execute an attractive acquisition WMIH’s investment thesis We believe WMIH, with significant capital, is and will remain an advantaged acquirer due to its financial attributes, including $6 billion of net operating loss carryforwards The Amendment provides financial stability and additional time to pursue accretive acquisitions Acquisition targets previously pursued by WMIH evidence management’s view that attractive opportunities exist at compelling prices

Slide 3

The Amendment is good for all stakeholders of WMIH Corp. 21-Month Extension: Provides the Company with significant additional time to identify and consummate an accretive acquisition Arms’ Length Negotiation: The terms of the amendment were negotiated at the direction of the Finance Committee with the assistance of Keefe, Bruyette & Woods, Inc., after arms-length negotiations Reduction in Exercise Price Range to $1.35/share: Represents a price that is 23% below the prior Series B Preferred floor conversion price yet is well above the 20 day average price of $0.85(1) per share. Coupon in Common Stock: 5% dividend rate payable in Common Stock at the higher of $1.05 per share and market value is a satisfactory alternative to a cash dividend given the Company’s current free cash position Special Distribution in Common Stock: Holders of Series B Preferred will receive a special distribution of 19.04762 shares of common stock per share of Series B Preferred if and when the Series B Preferred are converted in connection with the consummation of an acquisition; this special distribution is only payable if WMIH successfully completes one or more acquisitions KKR Transaction Consent Right: KKR was granted a consent right for the next 18 months through July 5, 2019, which we believe facilitates good alignment between the Series B Preferred Stockholders and WMIH KKR was supportive of the extension and they remain a valuable source for accretive acquisition ideas Benefits All Stakeholders: We believe the amendment provides us with greater financial stability and ongoing access to capital resources and supports our credibility as a potential buyer with respect to acquisition opportunities for the benefit of all stakeholders, including common stockholders and Series B investors Executive Summary Bloomberg L.P as of 12/8/2017
