BARCELONA, Spain--(Business Wire)--
Regulatory News: 

Gemalto (Euronext NL0000400653 GTO), the world leader in digital security, is
launching its LinqUs Mobile Wallet - the complete suite of secure software
solutions that enables a range of NFC services, mobile banking, mobile payment
and loyalty programs, all integrated in a single wallet. Showcasing for the
first time at Mobile World Congress 2013 (Hall 5 Stand 5G120), the new LinqUs
Mobile Wallet extends Gemalto`s software offers and is fully integrated with the
broader portfolio of mobile financial services (MFS) solutions. It enables
financial service providers and retailers to rapidly deploy a breadth of
services that can be customized to their specific needs. 

Gemalto`s LinqUs Mobile Wallet solution includes a secure application framework,
a dedicated mobile wallet server, and connectivity with Gemalto`s secure
platforms for TSM (Trusted Service Management) and mobile payment. 

Designed to optimize convenience for end users, consumers can link to existing
accounts and cards, or set up new services easily. They can confidently conduct
all their banking activities straight from their smartphone, along with
transportation, ticketing and access applications. In addition, the wallet also
incorporates loyalty and couponing programs for consumers and enables targeted
mobile marketing campaigns. 

Gemalto`s backend platforms are pre-integrated with the mobile wallet, creating
the ideal environment for swift adoption by service providers. With over 70
deployments of Mobile Financial Services solutions worldwide, LinqUs Mobile
Wallet provides best-in-class security in mobile payment deployments.
Furthermore, it is proactively tested on leading smartphone models and with a
range of NFC secure elements to ensure `out of the box` operability and minimize
testing costs. 

"Interest in mobile financial services is accelerating due to the convenience
and added user-engagement that they provide," said Jean-Claude Deturche, Gemalto
Senior Vice President, Mobile Financial Services. "By offering a rich suite of
front-end mobile applications, through which end users can access the services
delivered by our powerful servers, the Mobile Wallet sets new standards in terms
