Marketing Worldwide Reports Net Sales up 10.6% for First Quarter of FY 2007

HOWELL, MI -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 21, 2007 -- Marketing Worldwide Corporation (MWW) (OTCBB: MWWC), a leader in car customization programs for major auto manufacturers, today announced results for the Company's First Quarter of FY 2007, which ended December 31, 2006. (The Company's fiscal year end is September 30.)

Net sales for the period were $2,161,158, an increase of $208,878 or 10.6%, compared to $1,952,280 for the first quarter of FY2006. Management attributed the increase to higher initial volume associated with the Toyota Camry Spoiler sales, the new Camry Dual Exhaust system, and increased sales of the Matrix component supply program directly to Toyota Motor Manufacturing Canada (TMMC).

Gross margins for the first quarter 2007 increased to 29.9%, compared to 24% in the same quarter in 2006. Management attributed the higher margins to new programs that have been launched and continued material cost reductions that have been implemented.

Operating income during the three months ended December 31, 2006 rose to $63,274, an increase of $15,768 or 33.1%, compared to $47,506 for the same quarter in 2006.
