NEXT Biometrics Receives Key Hardware Certification for India’s Aadhaar Government ID Program - Initial Revenues Expected in 4Q 2018
OSLO – JUNE 5, 2018 – NEXT Biometrics (Oslo Bors: NEXT), a global leader in fingerprint sensor technology, today announced the company has received hardware certification to provide its unique fingerprint sensor solution to India’s Aadhaar government ID program. Aadhaar is the largest and most sophisticated biometrics-based government ID system in the world.

The certification enables NEXT to accelerate sales activity into India’s government ID market, with initial revenue expected to be recognized in the fourth quarter.

“The certification of NEXT’s fingerprint sensor technology by the Government of India is a confirmation of the reliability, security and convenience of our sensors,” said Ritu Favre, CEO of NEXT Biometrics. “We are very pleased to have reached this milestone after a long and rigorous testing process. Delivering products for the Aadhaar program is an important part of NEXT’s business strategy and we look forward to a long and successful relationship helping the government provide services for the people of India.”

The total market opportunity in India for fingerprint sensors in the government ID segment is initially projected to be about 3-4 million units annually, growing to 5-10 million units on an annual basis by 2022. NEXT will now finalize software development and certification for various user platforms. NEXT expects to start generating revenue in the fourth quarter, and ramp additional products in 2019.

NEXT’s product roadmap calls first for sales of “Scallop” (3023-U) fingerprint readers later this year, followed by sensor modules (2023-U) used in devices such as point of sale (POS) terminals for the Aadhaar market in the first half of 2019. An encrypted, even more highly secure fingerprint reader is planned for introduction in the second half of 2019, followed by the encrypted version of a sensor module in the first half of 2020. The encrypted products will comply with “Level 1” specifications from the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) and are being designed to support broader use of Aadhaar for payments.

UIDAI is charged with randomly assigning a unique 12-digit identification number (called “Aadhaar”) for all residents of India. The ID number is verified using biometric authentication - the most secure form of identification. According to the UIDAI, “Aadhaar is a strategic policy tool for social and financial inclusion, public sector delivery reforms, managing fiscal budgets, increased convenience and promoting hassle-free people-centric governance.”

The certification received by NEXT Biometrics comes from the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology, Directorate of Standardisation Testing and Quality Certification (STQC). A vendor seeking to provide products to the Aadhaar program must submit them for rigorous testing by STQC before they will be considered for procurement by the government. The testing for Aadhaar participation requires certification for the hardware device and a separate certification for each version of software that runs on the hardware platform.

Additional information about NEXT’s plans to provide it’s unique large-area fingerprint sensors for use in the government ID market segment were outlined at the company’s Capital Markets Day on March 1 and may be found in the Investor Relations section of the NEXT Biometrics website.

NEXT Biometrics will host a conference call for investors beginning at 15:00 today to further discuss today’s news. Additional information regarding the specifics for the call will be available later today on the company’s website.

Noen som la merke til handlene her etter kl 16 i dag, hmm?


#512

Er det nå en skal kjøpe på bunn her? :face_with_raised_eyebrow:


#513

Jeg satt i denne aksjen tidligere, men solgte grunnet minimalt med salg av sensorer. Jeg så det kom en skrytemelding for en kort tid siden at de hadde passert 4 millioner solgte sensorer.

Noen som har en oversikt over hvor mange sensorer de faktisk har solgt i 2017 og så langt i 2018?

Hvordan endte det med DELL avtalen?

Hva skjer med sensorer i kredittkort?

NEXT Biometrics Receives First Orders for Government Certified Fingerprint Readers in India

New India Subsidiary to be Created; Sales Organization Adding New Talent

OSLO - Aug. 6, 2018 – NEXT Biometrics (Oslo Bors: NEXT), a global leader in fingerprint sensor technology, today announced the company has received initial orders for its “Scallop” (NB-3023-U-UID) fingerprint readers for use in India’s Aadhaar government ID program. At the same time, NEXT announced its intention to create a subsidiary in India and has also made key additions to the sales organization in the country.

                  The orders for fingerprint readers come just two months after NEXT received certification from India’s Standardization Testing and Quality Certification (STQC) Directorate to sell products for use in the Aadhaar program. The fingerprint readers are sold through NEXT’s distribution partner, AqTronics Technologies, Pvt. Ltd.

                  As previously stated, NEXT’s product plans call first for sales of Scallop fingerprint readers (L0 registered devices) and sensor modules used in equipment such as point of sale (POS) terminals and tablets. These products will be used for Aadhaar based applications like Jeevan Pramaan, the Aadhaar Enabled Biometric Attendance System (AEBAS), Aadhaar based eKYC for banks and telecom, financial inclusion initiatives and the Aadhaar Enabled Payment System (AePS), among others.

                  India’s Aadhaar program is the largest and most sophisticated biometrics-based government ID system in the world.

                  “NEXT Biometrics is moving forward quickly to provide its fingerprint sensor technology for use in India,” said Alain Faburel, NEXT Biometrics’ chief sales and marketing officer. “We’re firmly committed to growing our business in India and are taking a number of important steps to enhance our presence in the country in order to best serve our customers there.”

                  As NEXT ramps activity in India, the company is in the process of establishing a subsidiary headquartered in Bengaluru. Creating the subsidiary will allow NEXT to respond quickly to customer requirements and rapidly address new market opportunities. The subsidiary will be responsible for developing product features specifically for India and will help NEXT build its presence in the country by recruiting outstanding local talent.

                  NEXT is currently building an experienced and well-connected sales team in India led by Ameya Bhagwat, head of sales and business development for India and the subcontinent. Bhagwat has extensive experience growing business for international companies and joined NEXT late last year after holding key sales positions in India with companies such as Crossmatch (DigitalPersona) and Safran Morpho. He also served as a software engineer for the international digital security company Gemalto, earlier in his career.

                  Another recent key hire has been Sanjith Sundaram who serves as head of customers and compliance for India and the subcontinent. Sundaram, who joined NEXT in April, has held a number of key positions in the IT sector and also spent five years with the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) National Identity Project where he managed authentication and device ecosystems.

Ingen overraskelse at de ikke skriver hvor stor ordren er. Sikkert veldig liten… Huff, dette har jeg hør mange ganger tidligere…


#516

Jeg tror dessverre at det er mange som ikke ser hvor stor denne marknaden er. 3-6 mill sensorer i året, 19-30 dollar per sensore og next har 35% lavere pris på sensoren en närmeste konkurent. Jeg tror de kommer till å ta opp till 60%av markedet om ca 2 år og det starter nå. Eks https://www.semikart.com/sensors/biometric-readers/50820/1

Oslo (TDN Direkt): Konsernsjef Ritu Favre i Next Biometrics ser mer oppside- enn nedsiderisiko i marginutsiktene tilknyttet konkurransesituasjonen i det indiske markedet.

Det sier konsernsjefen til TDN Direkt i etterkant av kvartalspresentasjonen tirsdag.

Hun sier videre at det indiske markedet karakteriseres av store inngangsbarrierer på både government- og smartkortsiden, og at det er et markedet med lite forankret konkurranse.

Next Biometrics mottok i andre kvartal hardware-sertifisering i India for å kunne levere fingeravtrykksløsninger til Indias Aadhaar government ID-program.

Next Biometrics vil fortsette å forbedre marginene som helhet fremover, men hovedfokus for selskapet er å levere høyere omsetning.

-Vi forventer å se at marginene vil øke. Vi har skalert selskapet for en høyere omsetning, så det største målet er å levere på det. Vi vil fortsette å forbedre marginene, men fokus nummer en er omsetning, sier Favre.

Herregud, er det mulig? For å villede markedet melder de totalt solgte sensorer enn å melde nye orders.

Disse 5 millioner er solgt over flere år…

Det de pröver å si er att de ramper opp, för har de meldt 1, 5mil, 2mil, 2,5mil, 3mil, 3,5 mil, 4mil men nå er det 5mil.
