IDS Designs New Biometric Security Products for Residential and Corporate Premise Security in Joint Venture With HLS Worldwide, LLC

IDS Division Reports 300% Revenue Increase for 1st Quarter of 2007 and Plans Move to Public Markets

ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwire - June 13, 2007) - IDS Worldwide, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: IDWD) reported today that IDS engineers and scientists in a joint venture with HLS Worldwide, LLC are launching the first comprehensive biometric security system for both residential and corporate deployment in North America.

IDS development teams are integrating Tyco DSC Security Products with proprietary biometric hardware and the previously developed HR SmartScan System. IDS HLS ground security is the premier security company launched in 2005 and became the fastest growing security company in Asia.

Now for the first time IDS and HLS are bringing the most advanced biometric perimeter and IT security embedded in one comprehensive package to the United States. HLS will have the biometric hardware manufactured in Florida. This technology was requested from US Partners who represent clients with a minimum net worth of $300 million and demand the most advanced IT and Perimeter Security in the world. HLS will begin shipping product in July 2007. HLS is considering offers to license this new biometric technology to leading security companies worldwide. The security system allows remote access from anywhere in the world by biometric authentication to control alarms systems including remote IP security cameras, and all "smart house" functions such as thermostats, lighting and IT systems. System alerts can be sent to cell phones, PDAs and/or laptops anywhere in the world thru HLS 24-hour monitoring centers.

IDS and HLS are confident that these new revenue streams, along with the continued explosive growth of both the ground security contracts overseas and biometric product sales around the world, will enable HLS to move forward in the near term with its previously announced plan to acquire the remaining shares in public hands of IDS Worldwide, Inc.

Additionally, IDS reported today that the revamped division has resulted in a 300% revenue increase in the 1st quarter of 2007 and expects even higher revenues in the current quarter. IDS is now considering the acquisition of a publicly traded company as opposed to waiting to undertake an IPO for the division. IDS hired additional programmers and graphic designers this quarter to continue to expand and refine portal offerings. is completing the process of signing several new partners in the United States this month and should finalize a formal offer to purchase a fully reporting trading OTCBB company in mid-July. IDS hopes to formalize the buyout offer by early July and IDS shareholders under the proposed plan would receive a 1:1 share in the combined public entity.

IDS' 32,000 sq.ft. call center located in Lahore, Pakistan will provide 24-hour support for the combined operations. IDS call center is one of the most sophisticated call centers built with the help of Arc Solutions and Cisco products. The call center has capacity for 900 stations operating 24 hours a day with redundant system backups and on-site power generation.
