SANTA ANA, Calif. and ISMANING, Germany, October 4, 2012 (euro adhoc) - Identive
Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: INVE; Frankfurt: INV), a provider of products and services
for the identification, security and RFID industries, today announced that it
has streamlined and strengthened its management team with two new appointments.

Michael Ganzera has been tapped for the newly created corporate role of vice
president Marketing & Communication. Ganzera joined the Company in 2008 and most
recently has served as vice president Marketing & Business Development for
Identive's Identification Products division. Ganzera's professional background
includes 13 years in management roles within the smart card, contactless and
payment industries. Prior to Identive, Ganzera held a variety of senior
positions in engineering, product management, marketing and business development
with NXP Semiconductors' Identification Products Group. Ganzera's education
includes a Master's degree in electrical engineering and broadcasting from the
Technical University of Graz in Austria. In his new, broader role Ganzera will
have responsibility for refining, coordinating and communicating the Company's
strategies, solutions and capabilities to the marketplace.

Markus Gyssler has been named managing director, ID Solutions Germany, with
responsibility for Identive's Multicard and Payment Solutions businesses. In
this role Gyssler will consolidate the capabilities of the Company's existing
teams and resources to unify ID systems and solutions activities in Germany. The
combined Identive ID Solutions business will focus on expanding the Company's
engagement with smart city projects, multi-function ID card solutions and
cashless payment systems. 

Gyssler brings more than 15 years' experience in senior roles in project
management, marketing, sales, business development, finance and operations
gained in a number of global technology companies within the software, hardware
and digital media industries. Prior to joining Identive, Gyssler was with the
Actano Group, a Zurich-based project management solutions firm, where he held a
variety of senior management positions, including most recently managing
director for the XPERTS consulting arm of Actano GmbH. Earlier in his career
Gyssler served in senior management roles with BetaResearch GmbH, the technology
center of the KirchGroup, heading the product management division and several
other units within the pay-TV sector. He holds a degree in Mechanical
Engineering from the Technical University Munich and an MBA from the University
of California at Berkeley. 

"I am thankful for the commitment and hard work of Achim Hirz and Juergen
Mueller who have recently departed the Company, and I am pleased to welcome
Markus Gyssler to Identive in this important new role. Since its acquisition in
early 2012, clear synergies have emerged between payment solution and our
existing Multicard business, and we believe Markus will help to propel this
process forward," stated Ayman S. Ashour, chairman and chief executive officer
of Identive. "As we continue to consolidate our various brands under Identive,
Michael Ganzera's experience in global communication and deep technological
know-how makes him the ideal choice to broaden the awareness and acceptance of
the Identive brand in the marketplace."
