Thin Film Electronics ASA: LEO BURNETT/ARC AND THINFILM ANNOUNCE EXCLUSIVE TECHNOLOGY PARTNERSHIP

Global Activation Agency and Printed Electronics Leader to Bring
Digitally Connected Products to the Store and the Home

(OSLO and CHICAGO) February 18, 2016 -Thin Film Electronics ASA("Thinfilm")
(OSE: THIN.OL; OTCQX: TFECY), a global leader in printed electronics and
smart systems, today announced an exclusive partnership with Arc, the shopper
marketing and activation agency inside Leo Burnett. The two companies will
collaborate to deliver Thinfilm's NFC OpenSense(TM) technology to Arc and Leo
Burnett clients across a variety of product categories.

NFC OpenSense tags are thin, flexible labels that adhere to products and can
be activated with the tap of an NFC-enabled smartphone. Each tag is uniquely
identifiable and can detect both a product's "factory sealed" and "opened"
states. Once tapped, the tag wirelessly communicates with a smartphone,
instantly delivering contextual brand content at shelf or when using the
product at home.

Thinfilm and Leo Burnett/Arc teams will work side-by-side, ensuring the
technology is accessible to brands and creating custom NFC OpenSense
solutions for agency clients. In addition, the combined team will help
further shape the technology to ensure the technology is more attractive and
accessible to brands.

"Technology affords people the opportunity to plan, shop, and buy on their own
terms anytime and anywhere, resulting in highly sophisticated shoppers and a
highly competitive marketplace," said Nick Jones, EVP, Innovation&Growth
Arc/Leo Burnett, "Thinfilm's NFC OpenSense technology is a game changer. It
allows brands to connect with shoppers beyond the point-of-sale, delivering
multiple messages throughout a product's lifetime."

In June 2015, Thinfilm highlighted its NFC OpenSense technology at Leo
Burnett/Arc's fifth annual FutureShop showcase in Chicago. Leo Burnett/Arc
clients and staff learned firsthand how next-generation, mobile-centric
retail marketing technologies can change the way brands communicate and the
way consumers make purchase decisions.

"Thinfilm is very excited to partner with a global leader and innovator in the
field of digital communication and shopper marketing," said Davor Sutija, CEO
of Thinfilm. "We look forward to working closely with the team at Leo
Burnett/Arc to help provide the agency's clients with solutions that
strengthen consumer relationships and ultimately, grow their businesses."
