Quorum Lacking for Reconvened FIC Annual Shareholders Meeting

AUSTIN, TX -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 16, 2007 -- Financial Industries Corporation (PINKSHEETS: FNIN) announced today that no voting occurred at its reconvened annual meeting of shareholders held today because a majority of outstanding shares, which is required to conduct business at the meeting, were not present in person or by proxy.

The company believes that the continued low turnout was due in large part to the fact that FIC cannot solicit proxies for an annual shareholders meeting until its Securities Exchange Act of 1934 filings are current. FIC will hold its next annual meeting of shareholders when it is current in its public filings.

As previously announced, on Jan. 12, 2007, FIC filed its annual report on Form 10-K and quarterly reports on Forms 10-Q for its year ended Dec. 31, 2005, which brought FIC current in its Form 10-K filings. The company is now working to complete its annual and quarterly reports for its year ended Dec. 31, 2006.

FIC, through its various subsidiaries, markets and underwrites individual life insurance products. For more information on FIC, go to on the Internet.
