Huntington Beach, California, UNITED STATES

HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif., Feb. 7, 2002 (PRIMEZONE) -- James E. Shipley, President of EMB Corporation (OTCBB:EMBI), (Berlin:EMBI.BE), (Frankfurt:EMBI.F), and (Hamburg:EMBI: EMBI:H), announced today that EMB Corporation has received the initial investment funds arising from a private placement of its preferred and common stock with Paramount Financial Group, Inc.

James E. Shipley, President of EMB, stated, "On November 12, 2001, we announced that we had retained the services of Paramount Financial Group, Inc. to assist EMB in raising capital for the Company. We are pleased to announce that we have received the first tranche of an anticipated $1,000,000 that Paramount has agreed to invest by means of its purchase of the Company's Preferred Stock. Upon receipt of the full $1,000,000, Paramount will receive 1,000,000 shares of EMB's Series D Preferred Stock. Additionally, in a separate private placement, Paramount has also agreed to acquire 1,000,000 shares of the Company's restricted Common Stock at $1.00 per share for an additional $1,000,000, for a total of $2,000,000."

Mr. Shipley continued, "We anticipated from the beginning that this relationship would lead to EMB acquiring new investment capital and it has. We intend to use the proceeds to expand the operations of our two operating subsidiaries, First Guaranty Financial Corporation and American National Mortgage, in order to maximize their profit potential. Any new capital investment in EMB could also allow us to continue our search for other companies, which, if acquired, would compliment our current business plan."

As part of the agreements by and between Paramount and EMB, Douglas G. Gregg, President of Paramount Financial Group Inc., will be appointed to the Board of Directors at its next scheduled meeting.
