BRISBANE, Australia - December 15, 2011 (euro adhoc) - Multicard, a leading
supplier of credential solutions, identity management and system integration
services and a business unit of Identive Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: INVE, Frankfurt:
INV), today announced it has implemented a new fuel card program for Neumann
Petroleum, a privately owned oil company based in Queensland, Australia. To date
Multicard has rolled out the payment system to 130 locations throughout
Queensland and New South Wales, Australia. The credit-based fuel cards are used
by long-distance trucking fleets and individual consumers alike and can be used
to purchase fuel and other items.

"Neumann Petroleum made a decision to expand our fuel card offering and went
looking for a partner to provide a robust card solution to assist in this
process. With Multicard, we now have a solution that is helping us not only to
grow our fuel card business but can also provide our customers with online
access to important fuel usage and account information. The Multicard solution
is also securely integrated with our financial system, ensuring a transparent
experience for customers and a smooth transaction flow for Neumann," stated
Stephen Litherland, Finance Manager, Neumann Petroleum.

Customers will be able to apply for the fuel card online, and once an
application is approved, a request is sent automatically from Neumann´s ERP
system to the Multicard Bureau Service, where a customized transaction card is
personalized for the new customer account and each nominated cardholder and
mailed out by Multicard.

The card can then be used throughout the network of Neumann or Matilda-branded
service stations throughout Queensland and New South Wales. The Neumann Fuel
Card is used like any other credit card with a magnetic stripe and is swiped at
point of sale in a POS terminal provided by Multicard.  

All transactions are batch uploaded from the POS terminal to Multicard Manager,
a Web-based administration portal that provides an easy-to-use interface for
Neumann Fuel Card account holders. Via the secure Multicard Manager portal,
Neumann Fuel Card holders will be able to review their purchases online, compare
logbook data and produce usage reports. Multicard Manager also sends the
purchase information to Neumann´s ERP system, where the information is compiled
for accounting purposes and used to generate monthly account notices to Neumann
Fuel Card customers.

"Neumann´s Fuel Card program is an important service for drivers that reinforces
Neumann´s already strong brand. Multicard´s extensive experience with developing
and integrating secure ID systems for payment, loyalty and access control
enabled us to create and deploy a custom solution for Neumann Petroleum that
addresses their requirements for a highly secure, reliable service that provides
a positive experience for their customers," said Ross Head, Managing Director
for Multicard Australia.
