Research Report October 15, 2013 - Soundview Research

"NXT-ID's Mobile-Bio technology platform is the foundation for three new product offerings designed primarily to mitigate security risk of mobile devices. These products include a modular facial recogni-tion system called Mobile-Bio FaceMatch,TM a separate, physical biometric secured electronic wallet called The Wocket,TM as well as a portable biometric device called Mobile-Bio Sensor,TM which allows an individual access through multiple devices to a protected database or server.

This segment has been active in terms of acquisitions. The first generation biometric security compa-ny (L-1 Identity Solutions) was acquired by security giant Safran for $1.6B in 2010. L-1 was predomi-nantly enterprise focused and didn't address mobile or online commerce. Apple bought mobile secu-rity firm AuthenTec for a reported $356M, predominantly for their fingerprint sensor technology.

Our initial IV case suggests a stock value of $10.90/share if the company can execute on their plans."
