Trophy Resources Announces New Officers

ALPHARETTA, GA--(Marketwire - June 17, 2008) - Trophy Resources (PINKSHEETS: TRSI) President and CEO Joseph Canouse is offering the following statement to outline an update on the company and update the investment community at large regarding the current state of the company:

In my last communication, I endeavored to outline my vision and plans for the company. One of those goals was to communicate more openly with shareholders and update you on a more regular basis than had been happening in the past. Since then, there have been a number of developments which have made that difficult and I would like to explain.

After securing the cooperation of our creditors, Trophy was hit with outstanding invoices, questions of title and subsequently a lawsuit against the company and me personally, by the successor to a previous operator on its wells. Trophy engaged legal counsel to review the lawsuit and operating agreement along with an engineering firm to review the viability of the wells in relation to the outstanding and anticipated future expenses. In short, it was concluded that even if Trophy been in a position to pay the outstanding AFE's, it would not make economic sense. Trophy had to deal with a lawsuit brought against it by the operator and in settlement had to give up its claims for interest in those wells. Our only recourse is to investigate whether or not we have a claim against the original operator, which we are doing, and if such a claim is worth pursuing.

The opportunities available to Trophy have been limited due to its balance sheet and lack of funds. In light of those limited prospects and the high capital costs of entering the energy industry at this point, the company has now appointed John Rose as CEO and Mark Davis as President and I will be subsequently stepping down.

Mr. Rose has served in senior management in several companies in both the private and public sectors. Mr. Davis has founded several companies and launched startups. They have a vision and plan to expand a niche in an emerging market in Latin America that will take the company in a new direction. Information regarding the new direction will be forthcoming.
