DALLAS -- December 04, 2012

Authentix, the global leaders in fuel authentication, and Goaltech, Authentix’
local Brazilian partner, renewed their brand protection contract for gasoline
with Petrobras Distribuidora, the leading energy company in Brazil, following
a full tender process. The brand protection program protects Petrobras
Distribuidora gasoline in Brazil from adulteration and dilution.

Petrobras Distribuidora chose Authentix’ industry leading fuel authentication
technology to ensure their fuel integrity beginning in 2006. Authentix markers
are added to Petrobras Distribuidora’s gasoline and fuel testing for the
markers is then conducted by the Petrobras Distribuidora quality program
entitled, “De Olho no Combustivel” (“Keeping an Eye on Fuel”) to ensure that
quality fuel is being sold. Authentix and Goaltech provide in-country support,
training and auditing as part of the authentication program.

“The continuation of this brand protection program enables Petrobras
Distribuidora to ensure that motorists in Brazil are receiving the high
quality fuel they have come to expect,” says Jairo Della Libera Nascimento,
Director of Goaltech.

“This program is another example of Authentix’ goal to provide value to our
clients and form long-term relationships with key industry players like
Petrobras Distribuidora,” states Lal Pearce, President, Global Business
Development, Authentix. “The effectiveness and continued use of the Authentix
fuel marking technology ensures that Petrobras Distribuidora delivers on their
brand promise of fuel integrity.”

Authentix operates fuel marking programs on five continents helping leading
Oil & Gas companies protect their brands and helping governments protect fuel
tax revenues.
