Subtitle: SmartCore™ enables unprecedented printability for contactless ID cards

Santa Ana, Calif. and Wallisellen, Switzerland - October 17, 2011 (euro adhoc) -
Identive Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: INVE, Frankfurt: INV), a provider of products,
services and solutions for the identification, security and RFID industries,
today announced an innovative breakthrough in RFID inlay manufacturing
technology. The Company´s patent-pending SmartCore technology produces RFID
core-inlays enabling unprecedented printability for contactless ID and access
cards, with a thinner profile than traditional inlay designs.

An inlay is a thin material substrate incorporating a microchip bonded to an
antenna, and functions as the heart of an RFID (radio frequency identification)
credential such as a smartag, label, sticker or card. Contactless RFID
technology is rapidly replacing traditional machine-readable identification
technologies in numerous applications, offering substantially enhanced security
and convenience.

Werner Vogt, Managing Director of Identive´s Multicard Switzerland and principal
inventor of SmartCore commented, "SmartCore leverages Identive`s proprietary
antenna and inlay designs as well as manufacturing techniques invented by our
team and honed over many years. The unparalleled technique of Identive´s
SmartCore inlay eliminates the bumps and irregular patterns found in most
contactless cards and enables a perfectly even surface with a uniform thickness
and appearance that consequently allows improved ability to print and customize
electronic ID cards."

"Identive is well established as an inlay manufacture for smartags, labels and
tickets and with this new technology we are now expanding our range into ID
cards and badges," explained Michael Kober, Managing Director of Transponders
for Identive. "The special design of our SmartCore inlay offers partners more
flexibility, more durability and ultimately a lower cost of implementation for
contactless cards for employee ID, facility access and other applications."

Identive will showcase its new SmartCore technology in November at the ID WORLD
International Congress in Milan, Italy and at the annual CARTES & IDentification
exhibition in Paris, France. Initial orders for SmartCore inlays already have
been booked and delivered and Identive is currently installing new SmartCore
production capabilities at its Wallisellen plant that are expected to be fully
operational in early 2012.
