EastBridge Investment Group Signs Agreement to Increase Its Investment in AREM Wines in Australia

PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwire - September 21, 2007) - EastBridge Investment Group (EBIG) (OTCBB: EBIG) today announced that it has signed an agreement to make an additional investment in AREM Wines Pty, Ltd,, an Australian Wine company in Melbourne, Australia.

Under the terms of the agreement, EBIG will immediately issue 8,000,000 shares of its common stock, restricted for one year, for a total of 15% of AREM's stock ownership. This agreement replaces the previous investment agreement between EBIG and AREM. The additional investment made by EBIG for the same percentage of ownership in AREM per its previous agreement represents the result of AREM's recent ownership restructuring and the substantial increase in AREM's valuation.

Norm Klein, COO and CFO of EBIG, commented, "AREM Wines has made impressive gains. This new investment commitment shows our enthusiasm for AREM Wines. We feel that AREM is a great opportunity for EBIG and will be very successful. Our shareholders will benefit from the future success of AREM in China and other markets."

Thomas Tang, President of AREM Wines, said, "We are very happy to have reached this new investment plan between our two companies. AREM Wines has entered a high growth period. We are convinced that the relationship between EastBridge and AREM will benefit both of our shareholders in the long run."

Upon closing of this new agreement, AREM's Australian founders and original shareholders own, as a group, a total of 85% and EBIG will own 15% of AREM.

AREM distributes its wines in Australia as well as China and Southeast Asia. Its main market, however, is China. AREM is concentrating on meeting the demands for their exclusive Australian wines from China. To learn more about AREM Wines Pty, Ltd go to:
