            Access Worldwide Reports First Quarter Financial Results

    ARLINGTON, Va., May 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Access Worldwide
Communications, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: AWWC), an established marketing and
Business Process Outsourcing ("BPO") services company, today reported financial
results for quarter ended March 31, 2007.

    Our revenues increased by $3.2 million, or 58.2%, to $8.7 million for the
quarter ended March 31, 2007, compared to $5.5 million for the quarter ended
March 31, 2006. Revenues for our U.S. Segment increased $1.9 million, or 40.4%
to $6.6 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2007, compared to $4.7 million
for the quarter ended March 31, 2006. The increase was attributed to a one time
performance incentive program ran by one of our clients and a 7% increase in
production hours produced. Revenues for our International Segment increased $1.4
million, or 175.0% to $2.2 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2007,
compared to $0.8 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2006. The increase in
revenues is primarily attributed to organic growth.

    We reported net income from continuing operations of $0.01 million and basic
and diluted gain per share of common stock of $0.00 for the quarter ended March
31, 2007, compared to a net loss from continuing operations of ($1.0) million
and basic and diluted loss per share of common stock of $(0.05) for the quarter
ended March 31, 2006.

    "We had increased revenues and lower costs of revenues as a percentage of
revenues for the quarter, and we also had lower interest expense," commented
Richard Lyew, Chief Financial Officer. "We also had positive working capital of
$4.0 million and cash and cash equivalents of $3.8 million."

    Total weighted average diluted shares outstanding for the quarters ended
March 31, 2007 and March 31, 2006 were 17,679,065 and 16,889,039, respectively.

continues to be to maximize the utilization of our domestic capacity while
expanding our international capacity."
