most ambitious portfolio of touch and swipe fingerprint sensors for the
mobile devices industry. We are very much looking forward to welcoming the
Anacatum team into FPC."

had with Anacatum since Anacatum was founded and the start of a new phase
when Anacatum becomes fully integrated with FPC. We will bring our patented
