Innovative NeuroTechnologies Terminates Plan to Go Public

LOS ANGELES, CA and FRANKFURT, GERMANY--(Marketwire - October 22, 2010) -  PHIGroup, Inc. (OTCBB: PHIE) (FRANKFURT: PR7) (XETRA: PR7) (WKN A0RNQV), www.phiglobal.com, an M & A company with diversified holdings in real estate development, energy, natural resources and special situations, announced today that both the Company and its client Innovative NeuroTechnologies, Inc. (INT) have mutually agreed to terminate the previously announced consulting agreement to list INT's shares on a leading European stock market and arrange funding for INT's further development and growth.

Innovative NeuroTechnologies is a biotechnology company based in Irvine, CA engaged in the early-stage clinical development of novel therapeutic strategies for major human central nervous system disorders, particularly in the area of neurodegeneration.

According to the termination agreement, PHIGroup will release INT from all obligations pertaining to any compensation for the services rendered as previously announced in December 2009.

Shawn Mojtahedian, Ph.D., Founder, Director and Chief Scientific Officer of Innovative NeuroTechnologies, commented, "We strongly feel that INT should explore different funding options because further delay in accessing the European capital markets could hinder our future success. We appreciate PHIGroup's intention to help us in the past and we should prudently consider our next step for the benefit of our shareholders."
