July 30, 2012, London – Identive Group, Inc. is
providing contactless entry and payment solutions at hospitality venues during the London 2012 Olympic Games.

Identive's Polyright visitor management solution will enhance
security for up to 10,000 visitors to the Olympic Club, located next to
the stadium in the Olympic Park. The solution includes the issuance of
personalized gold, silver or bronze contactless ID badges for
International Olympic Committee (IOC) members, VIPs, invited guests and
staff. The badges grant secure entry to the club and are being deployed
in conjunction with Identive's Polyright identity management system,
which includes gate control, monitoring capabilities and support
services.

In cooperation with the Dutch bank Rabobank, Identive is
providing multi-use cashless payment cards for more than 100,000
visitors at Heineken House hospitality events held at the prestigious
Alexandra Palace. The contactless cards utilize
Identive's tomPAY near field communication (NFC) tag
technology, which allows them to be used both as conventional cashless
payment cards and as NFC payment stickers for mobile phones. The cards
also are compatible with the company's Multicard Cashless Betalen
mobile payment solution, which is widely deployed in the Netherlands.
Dutch Olympic visitors who obtain an Identive cashless payment card will
be able to peel off the NFC tag, affix it to their mobile devices and
download Cashless Betalen apps to enroll on their return home. Identive
expects the total number of Cashless Betalen users to exceed 200,000
this summer.
