Advanced ID Receives Record-Breaking RFID Tire Tag Quote Totaling Over 11 Million Units

CALGARY, AB -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 21, 2007 -- Advanced ID (OTCBB: AIDO), after successfully completing tire tracking tests for ten individual companies in South America, was asked by a top five tire manufacturer to quote on the production of over 11 million RFID Tire Tags spread over one year. The quantity of tags along with the traditional tire manufacturer operations could mean the incremental sale of several thousand RFID readers as well. It is anticipated that the order for monthly shipments will start shortly after the conclusion of a successful final product trial.

"This is a milestone for Advanced ID," stated Michael T. McGrail, Director of Sales. "We worked hard to get to this point -- it represents the natural progression of the sales process beginning with identifying a need for RFID in tires and providing the customer with the qualitative reasons for building the business case for implementation across key truck tire manufacturing lines."

Dan Finch, CEO and President of Advanced ID Corporation, gave much of the credit for the record-breaking quote to NEC Solutions, which is the distributor for Advanced ID in Brazil. "NEC Solutions has an impressive client list and an excellent reputation for developing problem-solving solutions. What's especially significant is the fact that although we are working with major tire manufacturers in the United States, our first major order may come from South America. Even though this is a request for quotation and not yet a purchase order, we are gearing up and expect to be able to fulfill requirements of one million tire tags per month by the middle of 2007."
