IDO Announces Reverse Stock Split Effective Immediately

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Dec 19, 2011) - IDO Security, Inc. (OTCBB: IDOI) (OTCBB: IDOID), developer of the innovative MagShoe™ shoe scanning device (SSD), today announced that its previously approved reverse stock split was effected on December 16, 2011 on a one-for-three thousand basis. Due to the reverse stock split, IDO's common stock will temporarily trade under the trading symbol "IDOID" for 20 trading days beginning December 19, 2011, after which the symbol will revert to "IDOI."

The primary purposes of the reverse stock split are to increase the share price of the common stock to foster market interest and to reduce the outstanding shares of common stock to a level more consistent with other public companies with a similar market capitalization.

Michael Goldberg, President of IDO Security, said, "We believe the reverse stock split improves the Company's capital structure therefore enabling us to increase the investor audience and interest in our common stock, especially with the new internal rules being instituted by many clearing firms. We are confident that the demand for the MagShoe will continue to grow globally in 2012, allowing the Company to build shareholder value."
