FRANKFURT, GERMANY and LOS ANGELES, CA (October 27, 2010) — PHIGroup, Inc.

Phase Five, which is the final phase for the Pointe91 project, is scheduled to be completed by Christmas 2013 to precede the anticipated inauguration of the new expressway along the Quang Nam Province’s coastal corridor that connects Chu Lai and Hoi An, the UNESCO-designated tourist destination 40 miles north of Pointe91.
The 120-acre Pointe91 development is located on an exclusive and majestic bluff overlooking the South China Sea with rocky shores that extend to the north and sandy beaches southward. Encompassed by a diverse topography, Pointe91 will offer exclusive luxury accommodations including 227 grand private residences in seven separate communities, an exclusive five-star beach hotel and spa with 180 rooms and 30 detached premium residences that will be part of a private residence club, a marina, hiking and walking trails, an outdoor amphitheater, pristine beaches, farmers’ market and other pleasurable amenities.
