Edgetech Seeks Internet Acquisitions

SANTA MONICA, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 26, 2006 --Since the merger with Web's Biggest, Inc. was completed in June 2005, management at Edgetech Services, Inc. (OTC BB: EDGH) has been restructuring the IT business that existed prior to the merger. During this time, management has been developing a strategy for the co-existence of the search business and the IT business and has ultimately determined that there may be more future value created for shareholders if the Company pursued a strategy that is focused on Internet as opposed to IT.

As a result, the Company has determined that an acquisition strategy for Edgetech is the best way to create shareholder value. Management believes that an acquisition of a highly automated and scaleable Internet business will allow Edgetech to take advantage of the current popularity of search engines and Internet business in general.

In accordance with this acquisition strategy, Edgetech has looked at and is currently evaluating various acquisition candidates. These companies target various segments of the Internet industry; however, management believes that they will mesh well with Edgetech's existing businesses and provide a good return to shareholders.

Management does not know when an acquisition could be completed.
