Southridge President Delivers Open Address to Shareholders

DALLAS, TX -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 7, 2007 -- Southridge Enterprises, Inc. (OTCBB: SORD) (the "Company") today released President Alex Smid's comments on operations.

"In light of our mission to produce and distribute ethanol within America in the shortest possible time with the best possible results for our shareholders, our initial operating period has been very rewarding.

"We purchased the Sledge, Mississippi plant by drawing on our line of credit facility, and sourced equipment for installation at the plant. We engaged Agri-Systems to help us design and build a modern 10 million gallon per year production facility. We developed an association with Mississippi State University where we will work with the University to advance ethanol education. We signed a contract under which we intend to import and distribute Brazilian ethanol, an initiative that is being taken by us to provide some early cash flow and a good hedge against domestic fluctuations.

"We have placed a significant reliance on outside industry experts in order to avoid or reduce the impact of the pitfalls characteristic of any emerging and competitive industry. We retained Duff & Phelps to consult on our phased development in Mississippi, FC Stone LLC to consult on risk management and commodity supply and, in order to facilitate a stable market for our ethanol, we retained ITEC Refining and Marketing Company Ltd.

"The Company intends to take advantage of all available government assistance in order to minimize its startup and operation costs. Given the recent announcements and initiatives being taken by all levels of government to address the dual concerns of global warming and foreign energy dependence, I firmly believe that we are in what could be described as 'the perfect storm' for ethanol production. The Company will take full advantage of this unique opportunity through innovation and common sense practicality. During our short history we have accomplished a great deal, and I am looking forward to even greater accomplishments during the upcoming periods."
