HLS Worldwide Expanding Security Operations to 11 New Countries

ORLANDO, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 14, 2006 -- IDS Worldwide, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: IDWD) today reported that IDS and HLS executives began 5 days of meetings and site inspections with executives from Tyco International Security and Fire Division. After concluding site inspections in Pakistan, Tyco and HLS executives will meet at HLS Worldwide headquarters in Dubai for two days.

HLS will release the details of the definitive agreements between the parties at the conclusion of these meetings and site inspections. HLS is pleased that the rapid acceptance of the quality and technology for HLS Security Systems has enabled this expansion to take place earlier than had been anticipated. HLS believes this new agreement and expansion will triple revenues in 2007.

HLS is currently adding some of the top biometric scientists and software programmers in the world who, with the launch later this month of the Microsoft Vista operating system, will make HLS biometric products one of the few Vista compatible biometric and encryption products available for the government and business market. These new biometric experts are conducting technology forums beginning tomorrow to introduce HLS superior biometric products to the banking, insurance and government agencies. HLS continues to receive on a daily basis requests to become distribution channel partners for its products around the world.

HLS believes all these developments will make the company stronger as it goes forward to complete the acquisition of IDS Worldwide, Inc. and in current talks with additional merger and acquisition targets.
