SANTA ANA, Calif. and ISMANING, Germany, November 13, 2013 - Identive
(NASDAQ: INVE) (Frankfurt: INV) announces that its Board of Directors has
approved the sale of non-core businesses as part of a plan to simplify the
company's organizational architecture and enhance its focus on high-growth
products and markets. Within the next few months, the company expects to
execute agreements to sell its Multicard U.S. business as well as the
assets related to its Tagtrail(TM) platform.

'Simplification, focus and growth. Those are the key principles guiding the
company over the next few months as we look to create long-term value for
our stakeholders,' said Jason Hart, chief executive officer of Identive.
'As discussed on our recent earnings call, we are implementing dramatic
changes to philosophically and structurally transform Identive into a
single, unified company focused on providing trusted ID products for
high-growth markets. Part of our right-sizing of the business is to strip
out activities that are not core to this vision. A simpler and more focused
organization will allow us to make meaningful reductions in our operating
expense base and to enhance investment in our target growth markets such as
cloud-based identity management.'

For financial reporting purposes, beginning in the current fourth fiscal
quarter of 2013, the company intends to classify the assets related to its
Multicard U.S. business group and its Tagtrail mobile services platform as
discontinued operations, and expects to report income from discontinued
operations and a separate expected disposal loss from the write-down to
fair value of the net assets held for sale. At this time, the company is
unable to make a determination of an estimate or range of estimates with

respect to the charges associated with its decision to dispose of these
