HOUSTON, Dec. 8, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Everybody's Phone Company, Inc. (Pink Sheets:EVPH), Texas' fastest growing provider of prepaid home telephone services, announced today that based on its recent developments and future plans for growth, the Company is reiterating its revenue guidance previously announced in August 2010. Management expects to report annual revenues to be an estimated $ 750,000 for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2011.

Steven H. Bethke, President of Everybody's Phone Company, states, "With an economic recovery underway and sales growth increasing within the consumer prepaid services market, we are confident we can meet our projected revenues of $750,000 by year-end 2011. We are also confident that double-digit top-growth growth in 2012 can lead to profitability thereafter."

About Prepaid Services

The projected home telephone prepaid growth plan is a plan that closely mirrors the pre-paid wireless phone industry. The top wireless telephone industry leaders have seen a huge decline in new multi year contracts in the last three years and growth in prepaid service offerings. According to the Dallas Business Journal, "post-paid" programs aren't attractive to today's typical consumers teenagers, the elderly and business owners are more often relying on a contract-free lifestyle with a penalty-free cancellation policy, pre-paid providers saw over 15% increases in revenues since 2007; many analysts attribute this growth to the billing structure (or lack thereof) and consumer's newfound freedoms to cancel service at any time.
