    Neither is a complete sentence.

    1. My company has a global reach. ing worldwide.
    That's possible, but I'm not so sure how effective it would be as a promotion tool.

    Does the word "reach" mean "Succeed in achieving" here?
    Because according to the English online dictionary below,

    Here's a hint for you, Polyester. "... a ... reach". So what do you think it is, and which entry in that link does it correspond to?

    How about "My company has a worldwide reach?" It doesn't say anything about how successful or otherwise the company is but it does show that it operates globally.

    Yes! Well done.

    No. Does a company have an arm?! Try again. I'm sure you'll get it.

    emsr2d2,
    I'm trying to find out the correct answer from the dictionary which I provided.
    I think it's the noun and the explanation is no.2.
    "The extent or range of something's application, effect, or influence."

    I understand that "our" is preferred to "my" in business writing.

    How about:
    Our company has business worldwide.
    Our company operates internationally.
