Former IQ Biometrix Sales Contact Named FacePrint Global Solutions' Vice President of Sales

FRESNO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 26, 2006 -- One of America's leading sales negotiators in the realm of criminal investigative services and a sales contact for a former facial composite software provider has joined FacePrint Global Solutions (FGS) (OTCBB: FCPG). John R. Magill has been named Vice President of Sales and brings with him a proven ability to drive business growth.

Magill's primary focus at FGS will be to develop new business opportunities, foster strategic partnerships, customer relationships and develop emerging market opportunities.

Prior to joining the FGS team, Magill successfully led the sales and marketing efforts of California-based IQ Biometrix for four years, leading the company to become a major provider of facial composite software for law enforcement and numerous federal agencies. Magill directed these efforts until IQ Biometrix merged with Wherify Wireless in 2005.

Magill served as the primary sales contact for IQ Biometrix and negotiated deals with naval Criminal Investigative services for 150 installations throughout the world. He also negotiated with the Joint Counter Terrorism Institute Agency (JCTIA) -- a move that led to the training of 900 specialists in the global war on terror. Magill also successfully negotiated a software integration contract with Data Works Plus, the leading mug shot database provider in the U.S.

"John brings tremendous knowledge of the market, contacts and a proven ability to drive growth," said FGS Vice President of Business Development Serge Carrier. "His determination and energy in closing deals are second to none."

Magill said he was very impressed last April when he was first shown a version of EZ-FACE, the state-of-the-art 3D facial imagery software being developed by FGS that allows users to generate and codify faces directly from a single picture or a database of facial elements. EZ-FACE is also the world's first Internet-accessible law enforcement-dedicated composite picture software. The product is currently in its final phase of development.

"The product just blew me away," said Magill. "This is definitely the way of the future for facial composites, and I see great things ahead for FGS and the biometric industry."
