SANTA ANA, Calif. and ISMANING, Germany, April 12, 2012 (euro adhoc) - Identive
Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: INVE; Frankfurt: INV), a provider of products and services
for the identification, security and RFID industries, today announces the US
launch of SmartCore™, an innovative RFID (radio frequency identification) card
core manufacturing technology that enables unmatched surface quality and
printability of contactless ID and access cards. An RFID card core consists of
an integrated circuit (IC) connected to an antenna covered by protective layers,
and functions as the heart of a contactless card. Since its introduction late
last year in Europe, SmartCore has set a new standard for contactless card
manufacturing worldwide.

The pioneering, patent-pending technique used to manufacture SmartCore card
cores eliminates the need for chip enclosures known as modules and enables
production of an even surface without bumps or irregular patterns. Cards
produced with SmartCore have a uniform thickness and appearance, which allows
printing and customization not previously available in the market. Additionally,
in the SmartCore process the IC and the connection points to the antenna are
completely encased, which offers greater protection and thus improved durability
and enhanced performance for contactless cards. 

SmartCore´s numerous applications include identification badges, building and
facility access cards, bank cards, loyalty cards and transit passes, among
others. The high degree of durability of cards produced with SmartCore result in
a long lifetime with stable performance, making them well suited for high-use
applications such as payment and transportation. SmartCore card cores are a
painless replacement for pre-laminated cores as no change is required to
existing card production processes, and are available with a range of leading
contactless smart card ICs.

"The thin profile of SmartCore makes it virtually impossible to locate once
embedded within a card," says Roger Hornstra, Vice President Americas for
Identive´s Transponder Division. "In addition to the unparalleled
personalization options this offers, SmartCore´s unique design translates to
exceptional durability, greater flexibility and a lower overall cost of
implementation for contactless cards. SmartCore truly is a groundbreaking
development for card manufacturing."

Hornstra will discuss SmartCore as part of a panel on "RFID Foil and Non-Foil
Card Manufacturing" at the upcoming International Card Manufacturers Association
- ICMA 2012 Card Manufacturing & Personalization Expo, April 15 - 18 in Miami,
Florida. Also at the show will be Werner Vogt, the inventor of SmartCore and
head of Transponder development for Identive. SmartCore will also be
demonstrated at the Euro ID Trade Fair April 24 - 26 in Berlin and the Cards
World Asia show April 25 - 27 in Singapore.

evaluation package.
