IDEX ASA: IDEX Announces Breakthrough Production Order for Tier-One Mobile Handset

IDEX ASA today announced that it has received an initial commercial volume
production order for its Cardinal touch fingerprint sensor for a tier-one
mobile handset. This production order follows IDEX's design win with the OEM
smartphone manufacturer for a device to be distributed by a major wireless
carrier, as announced on December 21, 2015. IDEX expects to commence
shipments to fulfill the order during the second quarter of 2016.

"Our first, commercial volume, production order represents a major milestone
for IDEX serving as clear validation of our world class sensor technology.
IDEX's fingerprint technology is protected by one of the strongest IP
portfolios in the industry and we have a compelling value proposition for
leading mobile OEMs. We are now marketing our cutting edge range of products
to the mobile industry," said Dr. Hemant Mardia, CEO of IDEX.

IDEX is the only company in the industry with both silicon and polymer
technology-based sensors, enabling it to offer a broad product portfolio that
fully addresses the diverse form factor requirements across the full range of
mobile devices and smart phone models. IDEX's production-ready fingerprint
sensor products are suitable for integration in all mobile devices as well as
smart-card applications. IDEX's Cardinal sensor offers a compact, low-cost,
silicon fingerprint touch sensor solution with very low power consumption.

Dr. Mardia added, "This customer selected IDEX technology for the compelling
price-performance of our sensor, and we are confident that this customer will
place additional and ongoing orders with IDEX. We expect the endorsement of
our product suite by a tier-one mobile device OEM to lead to further design
wins and product orders with a number of customers in 2016."
