EastBridge Investment Group (EBIG) Highlighted by Wall Street Reporter to Their Growth Oriented Subscribers

PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwire - January 16, 2008) - EastBridge Investment Group, Inc. (OTCBB: EBIG) announced today that the Company has been featured by Wall Street Reporter to their Growth Oriented Subscribers.

"The new year is off to a difficult start," as John Buckingham, editor of the Prudent Speculator recently told Wall Street Reporter. So why are there more stocks on his "buy" list than ever?

Arguing that "armageddon" is already priced into shares of otherwise high-quality homebuilders, retailers, clothiers, and even Internet companies, Buckingham now recommends over 260 stocks, a record in the Prudent Speculator's 20-year history. "It's a pretty good time for a long-term oriented investor to be stepping up to the plate."

For more on what Buckingham thinks about battered stocks like Nordstrom Inc., Phillips-Van Heusen Corp., Steve Madden Ltd., and United Online Inc., members of the investment community can listen to his exclusive commentary at www.WallStreetReporter.com.

And for those pursuing a more growth oriented strategy, among the hundreds of other interviews from market gurus and corporate executives archived at www.WallStreetReporter.com, Keith Wong, chief executive officer at EastBridge Investment Group (OTCBB: EBIG), recently told Wall Street Reporter that Asia's booming economies are still generating plenty of new opportunities.

"All of EBIG's Asian companies will eventually become public companies in the United States," he explains, noting that EastBridge's pre-IPO consulting business has "performed exceedingly well so far" and is on track to turn a profit of its own in 2008.

  Highlights of the interview:

  -- How bullish business conditions in China helped EastBridge take on
     twice as many consulting clients last year as management expected.

  -- Why the company will continue to collect equity in exchange for its
     services in order to build a "substantial" portfolio of strategic
     interests, especially in the energy, agriculture, and property
     sectors.

  -- More detail on the value-added services EastBridge provides client
     companies' shareholders, as well as the value it is building for its
     own investors.
