OTI's SmartID Division Receives New Order From Tanzania Revenue Authority

$3 Million New Order Is Part of the SmartID Operation Being Sold to SuperCom

ROSH PINA, ISRAEL--(Marketwired - Nov 25, 2013) - On Track Innovations Ltd. (OTI) (NASDAQ: OTIV), a global leader in cashless payment solutions based on contactless transactions and near-field communication (NFC), has received a notification of award from the Tanzania Revenue Authority (TRA) for the provision of support and maintenance for implementation of a computerized driver's license system. The six-month order is through OTI's SmartID division and is valued at approximately $3 million. The final order documents are expected to be signed in the next 30 days. It is a new order to OTI after the current contract with the TRA for the Tanzanian national driver's license system ended.

"We have been serving the TRA for the last three years and the implementation has been very successful," commented Ofer Tziperman, OTI's CEO. "This follow-on order demonstrates the customer's confidence in the SmartID solution."

In August, OTI signed a definitive agreement to sell its SmartID division to SuperCom Ltd. (NASDAQ: SPCB) for $10 million in secured cash after the closing, with an additional $12.5 million subject to performance-based milestones. The transaction is expected to close in December 2013 following the conclusion of the due diligence process conducted by SuperCom. After the closing of the agreement, SuperCom will be required to execute the TRA order and OTI will not receive any revenues from the order.
