EVERETT, Wash. -- February 15, 2013

Intermec, Inc. (NYSE:IN) announced today that it has filed with the Securities
and Exchange Commission definitive proxy materials in connection with the
Company’s pending merger agreement with Honeywell International Inc. The
mailing of such proxy materials to stockholders is expected to begin this
week. As previously announced on December 10, 2012, Intermec entered into a
definitive merger agreement whereby Honeywell will acquire Intermec in an all
cash transaction for $10.00 per share.

A special meeting of the stockholders of Intermec will be held to consider and
vote upon the proposed merger, and is scheduled for March 19, 2013 at 10:00
a.m., Eastern Time, at Morris, Nichols, Arsht & Tunnell LLP, 1201 North Market
Street, Wilmington, Delaware 19801. Intermec stockholders of record as of the
close of business on January 25, 2013 will be entitled to vote at the special
meeting.

The Board of Directors of Intermec, acting upon the unanimous recommendation
of the Special Committee composed entirely of independent directors, has
approved the transaction and recommends that Intermec stockholders vote “FOR”
the adoption of the merger agreement. Intermec is seeking, and the merger
agreement requires, adoption by the affirmative vote of a majority of the
outstanding shares of the Company’s common stock entitled to vote at the
special meeting.

Stockholders are encouraged to read the Company’s definitive proxy materials
in their entirety as they provide, among other things, a detailed discussion
of the process that led to the proposed merger transaction and the reasons
behind the Board of Directors’ recommendation that stockholders vote “FOR” the
adoption of the merger agreement.

Stockholders who have questions about the merger, need assistance in
submitting their proxy or voting their shares should contact the Company’s
proxy solicitor, MacKenzie Partners, Inc., 105 Madison Avenue, New York, NY
