IDEX Q1: Extensive work with partners resulted in two orders

  • Regulator’s policy change opens Norwegian market
  • Exploring strategic opportunities. Good traction in ongoing partner evaluation project.
  • Funding secured through private placement of shares

After extensive work with a growing number of partners, IDEX received two orders in April. “We have passed an important milestone in our company’s history. In 2012 there will be launched products with IDEX fingerprint technology inside,” said Ralph W. Bernstein, CEO of IDEX.

“Two of our partners have now selected SmartFinger Film for their biometric devices, and we expect to see their products with ‘IDEX inside’ on the market in 2012,” Bernstein added. “These orders open new markets for us”, he continued. “It is particularly encouraging that the target applications are mobile security and access control, which represent major markets for IDEX SmartFinger Film – the ultra-thin and bendable fingerprint sensor”.
