Saflink Retains Equiti-trend Advisors for Investor Relations

Agreement Expected to Enhance Awareness of New Strategies Post-Merger With IdentiPHI, Inc.

KIRKLAND, WA--(Marketwire - January 25, 2008) - Saflink Corporation (OTCBB: SFLK), a leading provider of solutions designed to verify identity, secure access and increase productivity, today announced it has retained Equiti-trend Advisors LLC to develop and implement a comprehensive investor awareness and shareholder relations program over the coming months. Equiti-trend, a San Diego-based investor relations agency, provides a variety of custom services for public companies seeking results-oriented investor awareness programs.

"Shareholder communications and market awareness are of critical importance to Saflink as we prepare for the proposed merger with IdentiPHI," said Steve Oyer, chief executive officer of Saflink. "The Equiti-trend team impressed us with their significant experience with micro-cap companies and their targeted communications resources. We look forward to working with them to articulate our new strategy and goals to current and future investors."

On September 4, 2007, the company announced the signing of a definitive merger agreement with IdentiPHI, Inc., an innovative leader in enterprise security solutions and services headquartered in Austin, Texas. The merger will combine Saflink's broad portfolio of biometric, smart card and cryptographic technologies and patents with IdentiPHI's comprehensive "best in class" enterprise security solutions and distribution partners. Saflink has called a special meeting of shareholders for February 7, 2008 to vote on the approval of the merger and other corporate initiatives.

"We are very impressed with the direction Saflink is heading and believe our team is well positioned to effectively communicate the value, long-term potential, and growth to the existing shareholders and potential investors," said James J. Mahoney, managing director of Equiti-trend Advisors.

Following shareholder approval and closing of the proposed merger, Saflink intends to change its name to IdentiPHI, Inc. and to move its headquarters to Austin, Texas.
