CONTACT: John Farley at 301-340-7788, ext. 6090, or Jennifer Myers at ext. 6120 Phillips International to Take 1,300 on Disney Cruise to Celebrate Company’s 30th Anniversary

(Potomac, Md., October 30, 2002) – Phillips International, Inc., Chairman Thomas L. Phillips announced today that the company plans to celebrate its 30th anniversary by taking 400 Phillips employees and their families on a three-day Disney cruise next September. This represents a “Return to Disney” for the Phillips team since the company took them to Walt Disney World in Orlando for a 20th anniversary celebration in 1993.

Every full- and part-time Phillips employee, from the mail room to the board room, is invited to the expense-paid celebration aboard the Disney Wonder cruise ship next September. The trip also includes 70 employees of Eagle Publishing, Inc., a Washington, D.C.-based publishing company owned by Tom Phillips which will be celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2003. Phillips said he has chartered half the Disney Wonder for the celebration to accommodate the Phillips and Eagle teams, along with family members and guests – 1,300 people in all.

The Disney Wonder will depart from Port Canaveral, Fla., on the evening of Thursday, September 4, and make ports of call in Nassau, Bahamas, and in Castaway Cay, a Disney-owned resort island, before returning to Port Canaveral on Sunday morning, September 7. In addition to the cruise, Phillips International is paying the airfare for employees and their families and arranging ground transportation between the Orlando Airport and Port Canaveral. The cost of the trip will exceed $1 million.

The success story of Phillips International and Tom Phillips epitomizes the “American Dream.” In 1974, Phillips started the company in his Chevy Chase, Md., home with an initial investment of $1,000, three employees and two newsletters. He moved the headquarters to nearby Potomac, Md., in 1985. Today, with annual sales of $250 million, privately-held Phillips International is one of the leading publishers in America, providing a wide range of quality products and services for the investment and health marketplaces. The company is also known for its vitamin and nutritional supplement business.

As Tom said when named Publisher of the Year, he believes people are the main key to the company’s success. It was his idea to take all Phillips employees and their families — 1,300 in all — to Walt Disney World in the fall of 1993 to celebrate the company’s 20th anniversary and first $100 million sales year. It was a grand celebration bringing together Phillips colleagues from across the globe.

Tom is a former member of the Young Presidents’ Organization and a current member of the World Presidents’ Organization. He helped to launch two successful banks in the Maryland suburbs. He is a member of The Republican National Committee’s Team 100.

Phillips Investment Resources Launches Quantum Growth

(ROCKVILLE, Md., March 10, 2004) — Phillips Investment Resources, LLC, announced the launch of Louis Navellier’s Quantum Growth. This online newsletter is geared toward investors who want to trade the top 15-30 stocks each week, as identified by Navellier’s computer database.

“Quantum Growth is a simple, easy-to-follow service that gives an investor his best chance to trounce the market averages by using only common stocks,” said Publisher Michael Bell. “Many trading services rely on options, futures or commodities to try to deliver big profits, but Quantum Growth uses common stocks.”

Louis Navellier, editor of Quantum Growth, said, “While building an online database to help investors check the quality of the stocks they own, we discovered a remarkable thing – that stocks with great fundamentals can have great short-term performance. This insight led to the development of the Quantum Growth system, which can provide investors with fast profits when these great stocks’ true excellence is discovered. The Quantum Growth service is the best way for investors to find and trade these stocks at the most profitable time.”

Charter subscriptions to Quantum Growth are available for $5,000 per year and include a weekly e-mail distributed at market close every Monday.

Quantum Growth utilizes much of the same investing methodology that lies behind Louis Navellier’s other newsletters, also published by Phillips Investment Resources. Blue Chip Growth is a monthly buy-and-hold service for large stocks, and MPT Review is a monthly buy-and-hold service for smaller stocks. Mr. Navellier also developed PortfolioGrader.com for his Blue Chip Growth subscribers, an easy way for investors to get a “letter grade” on the quality of any stock they own. For more information on these and other services offered by Phillips.
