Trading Update 

Intercede, a leading producer of Identity and Credential Management Systems (IDCMS) software, today announces that in the first three months of the current financial year it has made strong commercial progress compared to the previous year.

Software deliveries to previously announced major customers in the UK, Europe and the US have been completed on time and ongoing development work is proceeding according to contractual schedules. The trading performance for the quarter ending 30 June 2008 reflects this continued progress resulting in increased revenues and reduced losses year on year. 

Further progress has also been made with the selection of Intercede's MyID technology for the following projects:


·         Two additional US Federal Agencies (bringing the total number served by Intercede‘s technology to 10) will be using MyID to issue secure credentials.
·         A MyID system has been installed to power a First Responder (FRAC) service in a large US state.
·         A managed service incorporating MyID has been deployed by an Intercede partner to support a large US Military Base.
·         Intercede’s first Australian MyID customer.
·         An additional UK Government contract.


Richard Parris, Chairman and Chief Executive of Intercede, commented:

'The level of activity in all aspects and regions of our business is greater than it has ever been and we are benefiting from participating in one of the few technology markets that is rapidly growing in spite of the general economic downturn. The overall prospects for the Group remain positive and I expect Intercede to deliver enhanced financial performance in the current financial year and beyond'.
