From the most recent 10-Q dated May 13th, 2005, NPI acquired the rights to market certain of its products under the name MOTOR TREND" and we believe that with the recent MOTOR TREND" marketing agreement, NPI's revenues should increase substantially during the remainder of fiscal 2005. NPI recently was granted the license to use the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval" on certain of its electrical products and believes that this license shall also improve its revenues during the 2005 fiscal year.

5) Brenham Oil & Gas
Brenham's asset is an oil, gas and mineral royalty interest located in Washington County, Texas. The royalty interest is leased by Anadarko Petroleum Corporation for a term continuing until the covered minerals are no longer produced in paying quantities. Royalties on the covered minerals produced are paid to Brenham for oil and other liquid hydrocarbons, in which the royalty is one-sixth of such production, and for gas (including casing head gas), in which the royalty is one-sixth of the net proceeds realized by Anadarko on the sale thereof. In addition, Brenham is entitled to shut-in royalties of $1 per acre of land for every 90-day period within which one or more of the wells on the leased premises, or lands pooled therewith, are capable of producing in paying quantities.

AMIN owns 100% of the common stock of Brenham

6) The company expects to eventually realize the original amount of $4,500,000 from the sale of Orion (ONH) shares, which is the original conversion value of the preferred shares (owned by the company) before the preferred shares were converted into 875,000 common shares of Orion." Since March 31, 2005 the market price of the Orion shares increased in value.

UPDATE: The property they have in Galveston, Texas got two offers. One for $15,000,000

They are deciding in the next couple of days on whether they want to take one of the offers on the table or not.

Given the property, current five million in cash, $800,000 stake in ONH, and three very profitable subsidiaries, two in the oil segment, stock is worth closer to $13 dollars a share.
