Company Information

Santa Ana, Calif. and Ismaning, Germany, June 20, 2011 (euro adhoc) - Identive
Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: INVE) (Frankfurt: INV), a provider of products, services
and solutions for the security, identification and RFID industries, today
announced that it has qualified for and been selected to join the Russell Global
Index when Russell Investments reconstitutes its comprehensive set of U.S. and
global equity indexes on June 24, 2011, according to a preliminary list of
additions posted June 10, 2011, available at 

Annual reconstitution of Russell´s U.S. indexes captures and ranks the 4,000
largest U.S. publicly traded stocks as of the end of May by total market
capitalization. Membership in the Russell Global Index, which remains in place
for one year, means automatic inclusion in the appropriate large-cap, small-cap,
all-cap indexes as well as the applicable style, sector and country indexes.
Russell determines membership for its equity indexes primarily by objective,
market-capitalization rankings and style attributes.

Ayman S. Ashour, Chairman and CEO of Identive Group, said, "There is no index
family in the world that rivals the size, credibility and buying power of the
Russell group.  Inclusion in its indices will not only likely broaden our
shareholder base and market exposure, but we believe it will drive demand for
our stock, as index buyers rebalance their portfolios in the weeks ahead.  We
are pleased to be included in this year´s Russell Global." 

Russell indexes are widely used by investment managers and institutional
investors for index funds and as benchmarks for both passive and active
investment strategies.  An industry-leading $3.9 trillion in institutional
assets currently are benchmarked to them.  These investment tools originated
from Russell´s multi-manager investment business in the early 1980s when the
company saw the need for a more objective, market-driven set of benchmarks in
order to evaluate outside investment managers. More information about Russell
Indexes, including total returns, is available at
