Innis Maggiore Establishes New Quarterly Record With 18 New Clients in First Quarter 2003

CANTON, Ohio (May 8, 2003) -- Innis Maggiore Group, a regional integrated communications firm based here, set a new company record by securing 18 new clients in the first quarter of 2003.

The new accounts contributed to record billings in the three-month period ended March 31, exceeding first-quarter 2002 billings by more than 40 percent.

"Although a slow economy has curbed advertising spending on a national level, we continue to meet business leaders who are seeking intelligent ideas to drive their companies forward," said Dick Maggiore, president and chief executive officer. "Following the example of many of our clients, we are finding ways to grow in spite of difficult economic conditions."

The record first quarter follows a series of strong growth years at Innis Maggiore. Billings quadrupled between 1997 and 2002.
