EMB Corporation (OTC-BB: EMBI) 
announced that it completed the acquisition of First Guaranty Financial 
Corp     
  

What is EMB Corporation? 
EMB Corporation (OTCBB: EMBI) is a financial services holding company, 
which provides a network to mortgage brokers, both retail and wholesale 
through its wholly owned mortgage companies, currently including American 
National Mortgage, and First Guaranty Financial Corp. Mortgages originated 
by its group of companies may be held temporarily for investment, or may be 
sold to third parties/financial institutions, or may be secured, packaged, 
and sold as mortgage backed securities.  The Company will be expanded 
through the acquisition of specific business-related companies that are 
well established in the industry to better serve its client base. Current 
acquisitions are American National Mortgage and First Guaranty Financial 
Corporation. American National Mortgage is a multi-state mortgage lender 
that specializes in Home Loan Programs from FHA to jumbo conventional up to 
$1 million. First Guaranty Financial Corporation is a wholesale and 
mortgage banker and broker doing business in fourteen states, at present 
time. The Company also intends to make capital investments in other 
financial holding companies that will provide additional ancillary services 
to EMB. Through these wholly owned subsidiaries, the Company will engage in 
business activities serving the residential mortgage lending industry, real 
estate industry, etc. Consumers are served on a retail basis, while 
mortgage brokers are served on a wholesale basis.  In addition, because 
each Company's acquisition will be synergistic with the other, they will 
contribute to the Company's overall goal to maintain the Company's position 
as a key player, if not one of the leaders in the financial services 
business for the 21st Century.  The Company also intends to look at mergers 
and acquisitions in other areas of business that might enhance 
shareholder's equity, such as the healthcare and technology fields. 

Financial Information 
The Company's proforma for total mortgage fundings for fiscal 2002 is 
approximately US$50 million a month or $600 million for the year. The 
Company envisions that 82% of its revenues will emanate from the wholesale 
business and that its retail mortgage lending business will generate the 
remaining 18%. The Company is projecting revenues of approximately 
$8,000,000 from mortgage banking and brokerage alone. They can project a 
net profit on $600 million of new business with $8 million of revenues to 
be approximately $800,000 or approximately $0.04 cents per share earnings 
based on approximately 20,000,000 shares issued and outstanding and fully 
diluted at that time. This does not include any projections from other 
companies that we may acquire during the year. They anticipate that in the 
first three years of operation the Company will focus in acquisitions and 
in opening new markets, with expansion and consolidation of all of its 
operations during the subsequent years.

Recent Developments

2001 Projections 
HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif., Dec. 5, 2001 (PRIMEZONE via COMTEX) -- James E. 
Shipley, President of EMB Corporation (OTCBB:EMBI) announced today that its 
wholly owned subsidiary, First Guaranty Financial Corporation, is having a 
record year for 2001 and has exceeded projections in originations, 
fundings, revenues and profits. First Guaranty Financial Corporation, 
(http://www.fgflend.com), headquartered in Santa Ana, California, is a 
multi-state wholesale mortgage lender that has a winning strategy in the 
vastly competitive field of mortgage banking. 
Mr. Rod Thompson, President of First Guaranty said, "Total fundings for 
calendar year 2001 will exceed $540 million representing more than a 224% 
increase over calendar year 2000." Mr. Thompson went on to say, "More 
importantly the company will exhibit strong net earnings for the fiscal 
year ended September 30, 2001, based on gross revenues in excess of 
approximately $9 million instead of our projected $8 million for the 
period. We have added some new key personnel and expect demand for our 
mortgage products to remain robust throughout 2002." 

James Shipley, President of EMB said, "We are very proud of the excellent 
job Mr. Thompson and all those associated with First Guaranty have done, 
and continue to do." Mr. Shipley went on to say, "Technology for valuation 
of property, underwriting automation, and the entry of foreign capital into 
the U.S. markets will continue to provide an environment where well managed 
mortgage lenders can thrive. EMB's formula for success is in place, and our 
strategy is to continue to assist FGFC with national growth, advertising, 
and increased technology through additional acquisitions, and/or mergers, 
that are presently in negotiations or under review." 
EMB Corporation Releases October Results for First Guaranty Financial 
Corporation 
HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 8, 2001--James E. Shipley, 
President of EMB Corp. (OTC BB:EMBI) today announced that its wholly owned 
subsidiary, First Guaranty Financial Corp., had a record month for October, 
and is having a record year in originations, fundings, and profits. 
First Guaranty Financial Corp., (http://www.fgflend.com), with headquarters 
in Santa Ana, Calif., is a multi-state wholesale mortgage lender that has a 
winning strategy in the vastly competitive field of mortgage banking. 

Rod Thompson, President of First Guaranty said: "Total residential mortgage 
fundings for the month of October exceeded $50 million for the 4th month 
this year. This represents a 242% increase over October 2000 with a 
dramatic increase in profits for the same period. Record funding numbers 
and volume do not always equate to profits. However, First Guaranty is 
extremely focused and maintains a tight reign on costs of production and 
personnel which does equate to profits." 
Thompson went on to say: "I recently attended the National Mortgage Banking 
Conference in Toronto, where most lenders were extremely bullish for 2002 
despite the September tragedies and national corporate layoffs. Housing 
values are strong, rates are at an all time low, and leverage is 
tremendous. 
"I believe that there has never been a better time to buy a home, or a 
second home, or an investment property. Whether a borrower is buying their 
1st home with FHA financing, a move up home with 100% financing to 
$685,000, or an ultimate luxury home for 3 or 4 million dollars, FGFC 
offers ultra competitive rates and service." 
Shipley said: "We are very proud of the excellent job Mr. Thompson and all 
those associated with First Guaranty have done, and continue to do." 
Shipley went on to say: "Technology for valuation of property, underwriting 
automation, and the entry of foreign capital into the U.S. markets will 
continue to provide an environment where well managed mortgage lenders can 
thrive. 

"EMB's formula for success is in place, and our strategy is to continue to 
assist FGFC with national growth, advertising, and increased technology 
through additional acquisitions, and or mergers, that are presently in 
negotiations or under review."
