IDO Security Releases Financial Results for 2nd Quarter 2012

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Aug 22, 2012) - IDO Security Inc. (OTCBB: IDOI), developer of the innovative MagShoe™ shoe scanning device (SSD), today announced that the Company has reported its 2nd quarter financial results for the three months ended June 30, 2012.

Revenues for the six and three months ended June 30, 2012 were $285,480 and $80,916, respectively, compared to $19,486 and $325 for the corresponding periods in 2011. The Company recorded a net loss for the six and three months ended June 30, 2012 of $31,847 and $1,568,448, respectively, compared to $3,926,331 and $1,754,433 for the corresponding periods in 2011. The Company recorded revenues of approximately $203,000 for fiscal 2011, representing the strongest year-end revenues to date and now the Company has exceeded last year's revenues within the first 6 months of fiscal 2012.

The increase in revenues for the six and three months ended June 30, 2012 as compared to the 2011 periods is primarily attributable to the substantial increase in the number of MagShoe devices delivered to customers in Africa, Europe and the Far East. The decrease in net loss for the six months ended June 30, 2012 includes the gain on the one-time extinguishment of debt in the approximate amount of $2.9 million that occurred in the first quarter of fiscal 2012. As of June 30, 2012, the Company received purchase orders for additional MagShoe units.

Michael Goldberg, President of IDO Security, said, "We are pleased to see an increased demand for the MagShoe over the last 12 months which we credit to our new management team in Israel that is headed by Yaniv Beran. Our marketing and sales team has been diligent in showcasing and demonstrating the effectiveness of the MagShoes, an ideal solution to close the security gap in the lower extremities that most existing screening devices fail to detect security threats. Our team has several pilot programs currently in place and we believe will result in sales of the MagShoes over the coming months."

A more detailed description of the business, results of operations and financial statements are contained in the Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on August 20, 2012.
