Phoenix Associates Raises Offer and Extends the Voting Preferred Stock Participation Program

Effective August 10, 2007 Conversion Price on Common Stock Raised to $0.08 and Extension of Deadline to November 30, 2007 for Shareholders to Convert Common Stock Into Voting Preferred Stock; Until Today Conversion Price Was Set at $0.06 and Program Was Set to Expire on October 31, 2007

MADISONVILLE, LA--(Marketwire - August 9, 2007) - Phoenix Associates Land Syndicate (Phoenix) (PINKSHEETS: PBLS) announced that effective today the Company is terminating the "Voting Preferred Stock Participation Program" that provided for conversion to voting preferred stock based on the common stock being valued at $0.06 per share, and effective tomorrow, August 10, 2007, all common stock received by the Company for conversion will be valued at $0.08 per share. The deadline for conversion under this program is extended to November 30, 2007, from the prior deadline of October 31, 2007.

It was back on February 15, 2007 that Phoenix first announced that it would be converting 62.5 million of its authorized shares of preferred stock, $10 par value, to "voting" preferred stock, $10 par value, so as to make voting preferred shares available for this program. The new voting preferred stock, which is now transferable and assignable, will pay an annual dividend of 6% which will be paid quarterly. Phoenix will redeem the preferred stock within five years from the date of issuance.

Phoenix shareholders are hereby notified that effective August 10, 2007 all shares of common stock received by the Company under this conversion program will have a value of $0.08 placed on each share submitted for conversion by the extended date of November 30, 2007. Thus, for each 125 shares common stock submitted for conversion the shareholders will receive one share of $10 par value voting preferred stock. Each voting preferred share will have 125 votes. Holders of the voting preferred stock will receive an annual 6% cash dividend (paid quarterly) and the voting preferred shares will be redeemed within five years.
