Fingerprint Cards AB: FPC receives ramp order of SEK 18 M for FPC 1020 touch sensor for Tier 1 flagship smartphone DW

In December 2013, Fingerprint Cards (FPC) announced the first design win (DW)
for its new mobile touch sensor FPC1020 with a Global Tier 1 OEM for a
flagship model with a targeted launch date in the summer of 2014. On April
14, FPC announced an initial pre-ramp purchase order worth SEK 4 M for the
FPC 1020, for delivery in May 2014. Now, FPC has received the first ramp
order of SEK 18 M for the production ramp in May-June 2014. During 2014, FPC
expects to ship +3M units for this first flagship device alone.

Johan Carlström, President and Chief Executive Officer of FPC, comments:
"FPC is the leading global supplier of capacitive touch fingerprint sensors
and the leading global supplier of fingerprint sensors in mobile phones and
tablets. By combining these strengths, FPC has developed the most attractive
mobile touch fingerprint sensor on the planet. It is with great pride that we
announce a follow-up order for the ramp so soon after the first purchase
order for the FPC 1020 related to a smartphone and with a Global Tier 1
player, on track for a timely launch. FPC's superior fingerprint technology,
image quality and low power consumption have distanced FPC from any
competition for touch sensors in mobile devices such as smartphones and
tablets."

FPC definition of Design Win (DW): The decision by a device vendor (OEM or
ODM) to start development of one or several commercial product(s)
