Starwood Research Initiates Coverage on EastBridge Investment Group Corp.

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - February 27, 2008) - Starwood Research announced today that it has initiated active coverage of EastBridge Investment Group Corp. (OTCBB: EBIG), a private equity and IPO consulting firm focused on bringing a solid pipeline of small Asian companies to Western markets.

In his inaugural Starwood Research Analyst Note on EBIG, Andrew G. White, CFA wrote that EBIG's role as U.S. tollbooth for underserved, proven Chinese companies could realize CEO Keith Wong's ambition of creating a diversified portfolio of high-quality Asian holdings for not only the company but U.S.-based shareholders. If EBIG delivers, they will deliver big.

Key value drivers:

--  EBIG is working within a vast and almost entirely undiscovered Asian
    barrel of roughly 400,000 potential clients in China and India alone. This
    allows the company to concentrate on only the most tempting opportunities.
    As CFO Norm Klein notes, clients are not start-ups; instead, they are
    already generating revenue [and] good cash flow.
--  Plans to take portfolio companies to Western markets could unlock
    substantial value; management expects multiple client IPOs in 2008 to
    deliver $10 million or more in revenue per quarter. Given current market
    cap ($7 million) and nominal burn rate, this revenue could prove
--  Conservative management team continues to demonstrate its ability to
    sign up corporate customers, most recently adding Huang Wei Pharmaceutical
    Co. to its client portfolio.
