First Quarter Earnings Webcast Tomorrow, 9:00 a.m. EDT

MIAMI, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 15, 2007 -- TelePlus World, Corp. (OTCBB: TLPE) (FRANKFURT: YT3) ( ("TelePlus" or the "Company"), a wireless and telecom reseller offering specialized communications products and services in the U.S. and Canada, announced first quarter results. First quarter revenues were $5,370,229 compared to $6,797,553 for the same period last year. Operating income was ($359,629) compared to $421,513 for the comparable earlier period. Operating loss was narrowed by $248,772 (or 41%) when compared to a loss of $608,401 for the 4th quarter of 2006. The Net loss was $2,278,373 compared to a Net loss of $2,837,517 in the same period last year. Positive cash flow from operating activities remained strong reaching $452,148. Operating EBITDA (defined as earnings before depreciation, amortization, interest, taxes and corporate overhead) was $333,854 for the period.

CEO Marius Silvasan commented, "First quarter results are as expected. We continued to face during the quarter impacts of various non-cash items which affected our profitability. These non-cash items reached in excess of $1.9 million. Decrease in revenues in the first quarter this year versus same period last year reflects the initial loss of wireless customers post acquisition of Liberty Wireless and prior to our integration of that business. Removing this impact our revenues have not materially changed in the first quarter this year when compared to previous quarters. We anticipate reinitiating growth of our business in the upcoming months once we complete the transition from a vendor providing us certain back office services in support of our wireless customers. We should start seeing sustained revenue growth starting in the third quarter with a possible impact in the second quarter.

"On a corporate perspective we intend to look at various ways to release shareholder value. We are currently not satisfied with the performance of our shares and will consider options in the upcoming months. As part of that process we also intend to re-look at our current financing arrangement which has been materially impacting our balance sheet, results from operations and securities. Our intent would be to establish a more traditional financing structure in the future," added Silvasan.
