ID Data plc is pleased to announce the appointment of Durlacher Limited as its Nominated Adviser and Broker with immediate effect.

Significant progress has recently been made with additional orders, including the Company’s first order for multi-application smart cards with an initial order value of
£2.0 million. The order from a Japanese multinational corporation uses a 16K chip to run a total of three applications, including a loyalty scheme, a bank card and an application specific to the user, making this the first of its type in Europe and is expected to lead to a further £6.0 million of sales over the next two years.

In the retail market, letters of intent have also been secured for a number of European loyalty membership schemes with a combined order value in excess of £6 million, expected to be completed in the first half of the year to 31 March 2003.

In line with the expectations outlined in the Interim Statement, the level of sales for the second half of the year to 31 March 2002 is expected to be significantly ahead of the first half.
