Big Apple Worldwide Receives First Purchase Order From U.S. Navy

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - October 30, 2007) - Big Apple Worldwide, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: BPWI) is pleased to announce that the Company's wholly-owned subsidiary, Big Apple Wallcovering, Inc., has received the first of a series of purchase orders from the United States Navy for the interior surfacing of ocean-going vessels. The company's fabric-backed, embossed vinyl wallcoverings will be used as part of an ongoing retrofitting program that the Navy has instituted for the modernization of its ships.

Big Apple Wallcovering will provide the product to be used throughout the vessels as a decorative and protective surface. The company has also produced wallcoverings for the U.S. Coast Guard and the materials have proven to stand up to the rigors of military use.

Also, all Big Apple Worldwide shareholders of record as of tomorrow, Oct. 31, 2007, will receive one share of Big Apple Worldwide restricted stock for every one share of stock held. The Company believes that the dividend will increase shareholder value and better position the Company for profitability.

"The retrofitting project provided an interesting challenge. Our product holds up very well to prolonged use and extreme conditions. Years ago, these surfaces would have been covered by a drab, flat surface, but with the advance in technology, we are able to produce an attractive, yet durable covering for the Navy," stated Neal Jablon, CEO and President of Big Apple Worldwide, Inc.
