IPICO enters casino market in France by signing exclusive agreement with RFID SYSTEMES

    BURLINGTON, ON, June 22 /CNW/ - IPICO Inc. (TSX-V:RFD) ("IPICO" or the
"Company") is pleased to announce that it has signed an exclusive partnership
agreement with RFID SYSTEMES for the supply of people tracking solutions to
the French casino industry. In terms of this agreement RFID SYSTEMES will
integrate the IPICO dual frequency (DF) product range into its complete
solution for casinos and provide these integrated solutions on an exclusive
basis into the casino industry in France over the next three years. The
initial deployment involves 40 Dual Frequency readers and several thousand
Dual Frequency VIP Access Cards.
    According to this exclusive partnership agreement RFID SYSTEMES will
purchase readers and tags from IPICO to a minimum volume of approximately Euro
1.3 million over the next two years. The RFID enabled solution will be
primarily aimed at the tracking of people through casino facilities, initially
focusing on the French market which boasts several hundred facilities, with
many more in the rest of Europe to be targeted in the second phase of
roll-out. The combined IPICO/RFID SYSTEMES solution provides a break-through
into the VIP Access Control market. The first implementation will be in the
casino application, providing not only improved security and customer service
but also supporting loyalty system benefits for patrons.
    "This agreement builds upon other recent successes that IPICO's DF
technology has achieved in the global market for people tracking", remarked
Laurent Crémer, Vice President IPICO Europe. "It consolidates IPICO's position
as a leading provider of free-flow people tracking solutions in commercial
building facilities".
