    ATOS : Atos Worldline is awarded the '2013 Innovative Payments Trophy'

    Paris, 20 March 2013 - Atos Worldline, Atos core expertise in hi-tech
 transactional services, has been awarded the 2013 Innovative Payments Trophy
   in the "e-commerce products" category at the PayForum trade fair for its
innovative eGo(TM) solution. Developed by Atos Worldline, this new technology
 will revolutionise the way a wide range of digital services and payments are
  handled. No cards, cheques or cash are needed: just your finger. Your skin
 sets the transaction in motion, ensuring secure user authentication. eGo(TM)
  is an extremely practical solution which does not compromise security. It
provides an initial identity verification procedure and remains entirely under
                          the control of its holder.

eGo* is an embedded  software solution which may  be fitted inside a  wearable 
object, such as a belt or a wrist-watch. eGo stores the user's data and access
rights for a whole series of services:  opening a hotel door, starting a  car, 
submitting health-related data or carrying out cash transactions, all with one
touch of the user's  finger. It is intuitive,  fast and ultra-secure. The  eGo 
portable  device  allows  access  to  multiple  services  containing   diverse 
applications. Not  only  does  it  ensure user  authentication,  it  can  also 
communicate with  eGo  compatible  objects:  with  a  single  touch.  Data  is 
transferred with absolute security and  the desired electronic transaction  is 
seamlessly completed.

Denis Faivre, Innovation Director at Atos  Worldline: "eGo forms part of  Atos 
Worldline's commitment to continued development of innovations in the  payment 
field. We are  proud to  have been awarded  this trophy  which highlights  our 
ability to give shape to cutting-edge  ideas. We have combined our  expertise, 
spanning 40 years in the payments sector, to optimise security and transaction
management features in the eGo  solution. Users will experience many  benefits 
which are  designed to  make daily  life considerably  easier with  regard  to 
payments."



* eGo is part of the R&D  program EUREKA CATRENE (Cluster for Application  and
