LaserCard Receives Follow-on Order for Next-Generation U.S. Green Cards

U.S. Legal Residents to Benefit from First ID Card with Pioneering Combination of Optical Security Media, RFID, Biometrics

Mountain View, Calif., Aug. 9, 2010–LaserCard Corporation (NASDAQ:LCRD), a leading provider of secure ID solutions, announced receipt of a follow-on order for approximately $2.7 million of optical security media cards to be issued under the Department of Homeland Security’s U.S. Permanent Resident Card (“Green Card”) program. Deliveries of the cards are scheduled for the period August to December 31, 2010.

“The new Green Card builds on the proven security of its predecessor with many technology and security innovations, plus enhanced convenience for cardholders through the addition of an RFID tag to speed land border crossings,” said Robert DeVincenzi, President and CEO of LaserCard Corporation.

The new U.S. Green Card was judged the world’s leading government ID card in terms of technology and user utility in a July, 2010 report by analyst firm Frost & Sullivan, who describes the card as setting a new standard for international ID programs through the innovative application of security methods and technology.

LaserCard’s highly secure, advanced ID credentials are trusted by governments worldwide to protect the personal identification of their citizens, foreign residents and government employees, and to provide official documentation such as driver licenses and vehicle registration cards.
