Epic Financial Corporation Discloses Growth Plans

Newport Beach, California, UNITED STATES

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., Sept. 17, 2003 (PRIMEZONE) -- William R. Parker, President of Epic Financial Corporation (OTCBB:EPFL) announced today the Company's plans to grow its mortgage business operations and to expand its business operations into other financial and investment services.

Mr. Parker said, "With our recent announcements of signed Letters of Intent to acquire Key Mortgage Corporation and Mission Equity, we are now poised to implement our strategic growth plans which have been under development for some months. We intend to not only expand our residential mortgage operations on both the retail and wholesale level, but also to enter into other areas of the financial and investment services operations."

Epic Financial Corporation expects that the operations of its wholly owned subsidiary, American National Mortgage will expand its present retail residential mortgage lending operations through the opening of additional offices in Southern California. Furthermore, American National intends to obtain one or more warehouse lines of credit that will enable it to initiate its wholesale lending operations, funding mortgage loans originated by a variety of mortgage brokers and other lending sources. American National expects to enter into strategic alliances with these loan originators to be the sole-source wholesale lender for these retail mortgage operations.

At the same time, Epic Financial Corporation intends to expand its mortgage operations outside the State of California through the acquisition of the Phoenix, Arizona-based Key Mortgage Corporation. When acquired, Key Mortgage will operate as a separate wholly owned subsidiary, focusing on retail residential mortgage operations. The acquisition of Key Mortgage will also provide American National with additional wholesale lending operations, as American National will fund the vast majority of all loans originated by Key Mortgage.

Finally, the acquisition of Mission Equity will expand the business of Epic Financial into other areas of the financial and investment services business arena. Epic Financial intends to convert Mission Equity into a "hybrid" Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) upon completion of the proposed acquisition. Mission Equity will continue to develop and management commercial and industrial real estate properties under the plan of operations. In addition, Epic Financial intends that Mission Equity will also provide warehouse lines of credit to Epic Financials wholesale lending operations and securitize mortgage loans for investment purposes. Mission Equity may also participate in other investment opportunities such as healthcare facilities, residential development and other such growth sectors.

Mr. Parker concluded by stating that, "It is our intention to participate in numerous areas of the financial services sector of the business world. The proposed acquisitions of Key Mortgage and Mission Equity are the initial steps in our anticipated growth to achieve this goal."
