True Product ID Signs Chinese Contracts with Leading Companies in the Pharmaceutical and Agricultural Industries.

BEIJING & PHILADELPHIA -- Richard A. Bendis, President and CEO of True Product ID, Inc. (TPID) (OTCBB:TPDI) announced that TPID has signed contracts with two Chinese companies in the pharmaceutical and agricultural industries. Both these industries represent two large industries globally and with these contracts, True Product ID is poised to enter additional industries which are constantly plagued by the ever-growing problem of counterfeiting.

The first contract is with a leading pharmaceutical company in China. A multi-year contract has been signed with this pharmaceutical company to tag approximately 160 million of their products annually. On a global scale, almost 10% of the pharmaceuticals within the industry are counterfeited and coupled with the fact that the pharmaceutical industry is one of the largest and most rapidly growing industries around the world, this is truly a strategic client for TPID.

The second contract, an agricultural company, will engage TPID's technology to tag seed packages. This is their initial contract and it will potentially lead to more subsequent contracts in the future.

In addition to these recent contracts with the pharmaceutical and agricultural companies, TPID has several potential contracts in other industries. These include the printing and packaging industries, government documents, automotive, aerospace, tobacco, garment industry, banking and bank notes, and electronics industries. TPID is pursuing a healthy backlog of orders which potentially could close within the second quarter of 2007.

TPID is also focusing on the expanding credit card, smart card, transportation and identification card industry. TPID is in negotiations to develop an exclusive relationship with First Versatile Smartcard Solutions Corporation (VersaCard) in the area of anti-counterfeiting and product authentication for smart and credit cards. This future partnership will see TPID providing its services and anti-counterfeiting technology to several of VersaCard's customers in the smart card industry, including leading Filipino communications, banking, fast food and convenience companies. Besides the Philippines, VersaCard has also made significant progress in the smart and credit card industry in other parts of Asia including Singapore, Korea, and Japan.

Mr. Bendis announced last month that TPID has filed a PCT patent application in China, which will cover the company in many countries around the world to protect its proprietary integrated anti-counterfeiting system. Furthermore, TPID is currently developing its next generation of technologies to position the company to become the leader in anti-counterfeiting and product authentication technologies.
