Evermedia Biometrics Signs Teaming Agreement With Leading Provider of Fingerprint Technologies

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - August 11, 2009) - Evermedia Biometrics Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Evermedia Group, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: EVRM), signed a teaming agreement with Biometric Associates, LP (BAL) to pursue several upcoming contracting opportunities, including work related to the development of Match on Card (MOC) technology. As a teaming partner, Biometric Associates, LP will accompany the active Joint Venture between Evermedia Biometrics and Nations ID, contributing fingerprint identity applications as well as its industry knowledge to MOC development and other federal biometric initiatives. The agreement forms a strategic alliance between the three companies and sets forth performance guidelines for all future joint contracting.

Currently, teaming partners have answered bid requests which, if awarded, would exceed several million dollars in services. All bids the team has thus submitted are to provide services under federal contracts. While the team anticipates forthcoming contracting opportunities from outside the public sector, the bid requests mentioned above only represent a small fraction of government services within the teaming partners' calculated focus. Over the next 5 years, this teaming agreement, in addition to the agreement with System Technology Solutions, Inc., postures Evermedia to answer upwards of $100 million in federal bid requests.

"BAL brings a wealth of experience and a talented management team to the alliance," said Jonathan Sym, CEO of Evermedia Biometrics. "With their successful track record in fingerprint technology, expertise in federal contracting and standardization, BAL's participation expands available opportunities and reinforces our position." Sym continued, "BAL knows this industry, and BAL knows that now is the time to prepare multimodal biometric applications like MOC for DoD and similar entities."
