One-Year Contact Carries Option for Four Additional Years; First Purchase Order Received

DOVER, NH -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 2, 2007 -- Liska Biometry (OTCBB: LSKA) a leading provider of biometric identification solutions, today announced that the Industrial Division of its Photomark subsidiary won a contract to supply all imaging supplies to the Arizona State Department of Public Safety.

The contract was issued for one year with options for four additional years. As per the contract, Photomark will provide imaging supplies for all Arizona State law enforcement photography. For competitive reasons, the Company has chosen not to release revenue details, but it has received the first purchase order from the Department.

Jack Lecza, Senior Vice-President of Operations for Liska Biometry in Phoenix, said, "Photomark has a rich history providing imaging supplies and services across the state of Arizona and nationwide. As the photography markets continue to change it is important to the corporation that we maintain our leadership throughout the region, and in Arizona specifically."

Christopher LeClerc, President of Liska, said, "As Liska continues to grow our share in identity-based markets, the leadership that Photomark exhibits in photography is important to the growth of our core business as we introduce new technologies through our other ID-oriented companies. Photomark enjoys a national reputation for excellence in photography and we are excited about the contributions the company makes to our total ID management solutions. Every contract we get in our Photomark Industrial division provides us with contacts for pursuing growth in our other operating divisions."

In late November 2006, Photomark was awarded a similar contract for imaging supplies for the Pima County Sheriff's Office. Pima County Arizona covers a territory that includes Tucson. The Company is pursuing similar arrangements with other governmental bodies in the US, with a special focus on Arizona, its home market.
