August, 2003 BizReport

Talk about coming a long way in a short time… when 110 guests was an amazing attendance!  Read this excerpt from the August 2003 BizReport. Shown in the photo is YTB Director Janie Francis, always an Ambassador for YTB, who joined YTB in October, 2002!

YTB National Sales Directors Rick and Brenda Ricketts along with YTB Travel President Kim Sorensen and "Coach" welcomed guests to the world famous Luis Pappas' Riverside Restaurant in Tarpon Springs, Florida. This party was destined to be one of the greatest ever with an amazing attendance of 110 guests. Folks all the way from New Jersey showed up ready for an exciting evening. Rick Ricketts, Gary, and Kevin Adams opened the party with an opportunity message that caught the crowd's attention. With Florida being known for its generous amount of cruise travel, the residents there have such an advantage in the travel industry. The energy here is incredible. Look for big things to come from this part of the country. We know this will not be the last we hear from Florida. Keep it up!!!!!!




Carnival Implements Fuel Supplement

Carnival Corporation & plc's six North American brands, have implemented a fuel supplement of $5 per per person per day. This includes Carnival Cruise Lines, and applies to the first and second guests in a stateroom (not to exceed $70 per person, per voyage), effective on all bookings for cruises departing on, or after February 1, 2008.

Vicki Freed, Senior Vice President of Sales and Guest Services, explains that the fuel supplement is necessitated by significant rises in fuel prices over the past three years, with a 50 percent increase occurring in just the last seven months. She goes on to say in a letter to Carnival guests, that this was a difficult decision, but necessary in today's challenging economic environment. She concludes by stating that Carnival will do everything possible to provide guests with a great cruise experience.




All Bookings made through Carnival's Special Military Promotion (good through November 30), MUST provide proof of military eligibility in order to take advantage of the special rate. Please make certain when you or your customers book, your YTB ID number is provided, along with the required military documentation or the special price will be rescinded.

Company Reports Record Revenues of $39.9 Million

WOOD RIVER, Ill., November 14, 2007 -- YTB International, Inc. (OTC PK: YTBLA) ("YTB" or the "Company"), a provider of Internet-based travel booking services for travel agencies and home-based independent representatives in the United States, today announced its financial results for the three and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2007.

Revenue generated from online travel store sales and monthly fees from Referring Travel Agents ("RTAs") in the third quarter of 2007 was $28.7 million, compared to $9.0 million in the third quarter of 2006. Revenue from travel agency commissions in the third quarter of 2007 was $5.5 million, compared to $2.0 million for the same period last year. Also, training programs and marketing materials revenue increased in the third quarter of 2007 to $3.7 million, from $1.5 million in the prior year quarter.

Net income for the third quarter of 2007 was $2.1 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of ($4.4) million, or ($0.05) per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2006.

Total revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2007 increased 207.6% to $95.9 million, compared to $31.2 million for the same period last year. Revenue generated from online travel store sales and monthly fees from RTAs for the nine months ended September 30, 2007 was $69.0 million, compared to $22.5 million for the same period in 2006.

"We are proud to report our second consecutive quarter of profitability and record revenue and net income figures of $39.9 million and $2.1 million respectively. This accomplishment was achieved despite certain one-time costs incurred during the period that are related to the continued expansion of our infrastructure in order to support our growing number of RTAs and to improve our services," stated Scott Tomer, Chief Executive Officer of YTB International. "In the first nine months of 2007 alone, we have doubled the size of our RTA network to more than 134,000 RTAs, and we see no signs of slowing down. Our success did not go unnoticed. Travel Weekly named us one of the top eleven leisure travel agencies and one of the 35 largest travel agencies overall for 2006."

Mr. Tomer continued, "We have high expectations for YTB International's future and are expanding our infrastructure and training capabilities in order to handle our continued growth. Our new RTAs will need the best tools and training. To meet this need, we recently launched a proprietary Web-based training certification and testing program, 'YTB E-Campus,' designed by Dr. Marc Mancini, one of the travel industry's most highly respected speakers, educators and consultants. This training program offers our RTAs a unique opportunity to hone their skills to successfully sell travel and build their businesses."
