Neither is a complete sentence.

That's possible, but I'm not so sure how effective it would be as a promotion tool.

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? :)

teechar,
Is it a noun in my link provided?
"An act of reaching out with one's arm."

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.

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.

It's preferable unless you're a sole trader. If you own the business yourself and have no business partners, I'd use "my".

"My company" could also mean the company that one is working with.

This is part of a catalog above a picture describing the company reaching its worldwide customers, so the sentence doesn't need a verb.
It's like "Apple, the master of cellphones".
So I need it to be like "(A company), reaching out worldwide"
