Debt Resolve Announces Third Quarter '07 Results

    Directors advance $1 million from June to November;

    Restructuring at First Performance Completed

    WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., November 20 /CNW/ - Debt Resolve, Inc. (AMEX:   DRV),
the only company to offer a patented Internet solution for the collection and
settlement of consumer accounts receivable, today announced its financial
results for the third quarter of 2007, and that its Co-Chairmen, James D.
Burchetta and Charles Brofman, and Board Member William Mooney have advanced
$1 million to the Company from June to November 16.

    Debt Resolve also announced that its subsidiary, First Performance
Corporation, has integrated Debt Resolve's online collection system throughout
its portfolio of collection accounts to improve liquidation rates and lower
the cost of collection, and has added a new client, a top-ten debt-buyer, who
has placed in excess of $70 million of placements. First Performance continues
to strive towards becoming cash flow positive in the first quarter of 2008.

    Debt Resolve's products continue to gain acceptance as revolutionary
tools to improve collections. For example, a top-ten commercial bank that
reported positive results utilizing Debt Resolve's online collection products
has increased the volume of accounts and has moved into other charged-off
products. The Company expects further penetration into the top credit issuers
and credit card companies along with other vertical markets including cable,
telecom, utilities, student loans, auto finance, prime and sub-prime
mortgages. This anticipated growth is fueled by the increase in default rates
and consumer household debt, which, according to the May 2007 Nilson Report,
has increased by 147% over the past ten years. The consolidated Company
continues to strive towards becoming cash flow positive by the end of 2008.

    During the three months ended September 30, 2007, the Company:

    --  Added another top-10 U.S. bank as a client;

    --  Increased customer registrations by 27% over the previous quarter;

    --  Increased account settlements by 20% over the previous quarter;

    --  Favorably settled a patent infringement lawsuit with a competitor to
ensure that there is no infringement upon the Company's four patents and
intellectual property;

    --  Reached a milestone of approximately 900,000 accounts in its system,
with a face value of over $1.3 billion in placements;

    --  Signed a major financial institution in the UK;

    --  Launched a sales effort in the Benelux region (Belgium, The
Netherlands, and Luxembourg) and in France;

    --  Received a 2007 'Top 100 Technology Products' Award from Collection
Advisor magazine;

    --  Translated the system into additional languages and currencies.

    James D. Burchetta, Co-Chairman and CEO of Debt Resolve stated, "There
has been a significant change in the banking and collection industry as a
result of increasing default rates, rising collection costs and difficulty in
engaging the debtor in meaningful settlement negotiations. This industry now
recognizes and understands that the internet will revolutionize and change
collections by providing the lowest cost channel to collect debt preferred by
many debtors as the channel of choice. Debt Resolve is perfectly poised to
capture a significant share of this global market."

    Revenue for the third quarter of 2007 was $526,818, compared to $30,617
in the third quarter of 2006. Net loss for the third quarter of 2007 was
$3,331,486 compared to a loss of $6,502,879 in the third quarter of 2006. The
net loss for the three months ended September 30, 2007 includes $354,821 in
non-cash stock-based compensation expense and $27,255 in a non-cash goodwill
and intangibles impairment charge. On a per share basis, the net loss of
($0.41) was less than the net loss of ($1.57) in the third quarter of 2006,
primarily due to lower non-cash expenses and an increased number of shares
outstanding. The Company's financial statements for the years ended December
31, 2006 and 2005, and the three months ended September 30, 2007 and 2006 were
prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the continuation of the
Company as a going concern and the realization of assets and the satisfaction
of liabilities in the normal course of business. Since the Company may not
have sufficient cash to fund its operations for the next twelve months, there
exists substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern. The
financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the
outcome of this uncertainty.
