Plus providing full personalization services

Amsterdam, May 21, 2015
- Gemalto (Euronext NL0000400653 GTO), the world leader in digital security,
announces that Russian petrol retailer EKA will migrate existing payment
cards to Gemalto'sOptelio PURE contactless solution.
These new private label cards bring a robust defense against fraud and
enhanced convenience for the end users. The cards are being deployed from
April 2015 and are fitted with the industry-standard MULTOS operating system.

commercial plans for interoperability with other retailers.

The new dual interface cards bring a quicker payment experience to customers
who just have to tap the card against the POS terminal to pay at EKA's petrol
stations. Verification of the card's authenticity is performed by the payment
terminal itself, ensuring service continuity is maintained even if there is

contactless EMV private payment card, backed by strong references worldwide

ensured that the migration from our
existing cards was extremely straightforward. The next step will be

Russian network"
