NANTERRE, France, April 6, 2011 - Oberthur Technologies, a world leader in secure technologies,
has considerably increased the capacity of its service centre in Torrejon de
Ardoz (Madrid).

With this expansion, Oberthur Technologies is able to offer
its Banking, Telecommunications, Transport and Identity customers in Spain a
wider range of value added services, as well as an even more efficient and
accessible after-sales service.

This move to bring the issuance closer to the distribution
points enables Oberthur Technologies to implement new processes of
"embedding-on-demand" (chip insertion) and "delivery-on-demand" (logistics
platform). New equipment will be installed in the new service centre for
embedding, laser engraving and high definition colour printing.

Oberthur Technologies has also increased its offer of "Smart
Services", such as connected systems for real time monitoring of work in
progress, automatic reporting of finished work, as well as shared management
of assets (cards and associated materials).

With the incorporation of these latest advances for efficient
management of the supply chain, the new service centre, covering an area of
over 2,000 square metres, will directly increase the company's productivity
in Spain as well as its flexibility to offer new and creative solutions to
its clients.

In addition, Oberthur Technologies has reinforced its offer in
mobile services such as SIM "Personalisation on Demand", "Delivery on Demand"
and Point of Sale packaging. These services will enable mobile operators and
MVNOs in Spain to benefit from new distribution channels, directly from the
service centre to the end user or to the point of sale.
