    from a leading provider of integrated technology solutions.
  *ASEC S.A., OTI's wholly owned subsidiary, was awarded three multi-million
    dollar projects as an e-ticketing operator for mass transit systems
    throughout Poland. The contract value of the three projects total more
    than $50 million over a five to ten year period.
  *City of Portsmouth, N.H. implemented EasyPark, OTI's cashless parking
    payment solution.

Q2 2013 Financial Highlights

  *Revenues in the second quarter of 2013 increased 19% to $9.2 million from
    $7.7 million in the same period last year.
  *Gross margin in the second quarter of 2013 increased to 56.7% from 45.7%
    in the same period last year.
  *Operating expenses in the second quarter of 2013 decreased 8% to $7.2
    million from $7.9 million in the second quarter of 2012. The decrease was
    mainly attributable to lower headcount and reduced management costs.
  *Net loss in the second quarter of 2013 improved to $2.3 million from $4.8
    million in the same period last year.
  *Adjusted EBITDA loss in the second quarter of 2013 totaled $1.5 million
    compared to an adjusted EBITDA loss of $3.5 million in the second quarter
    of 2012. The improvement was due to the increase in revenues and reduced
    operating expenses (see discussion about the presentation of adjusted
    EBITDA, a non-GAAP term, below).
  *Cash and cash equivalents, and short-term investments at June 30, 2013
    totaled $9.7 million. During the quarter, the company used cash to
    purchase equipment to support the expansion of its mass transit projects
    in Poland, and to repay short-term bank loans.

Management Commentary

"The second quarter results were consistent with our expectations and do not
reflect our recent initiatives to divest non-core, B2C operations," said Ofer
Tziperman, OTI's CEO. "The divestitures of Parx France and SmartID mark an
important step in executing OTI's new strategic plan of reducing unnecessary
costs and focusing on our core business of providing NFC-based contactless
payment technology and solutions. By optimizing our operational structure, we
can better leverage our core competencies in these areas, which we believe
will drive long-term growth and sustained profitability.

"We anticipate the pending divesture of the SmartID business will close in
November. This will further strengthen our balance sheet and allow us to
allocate our resources to more effectively capitalize on the fast growing,
multi-billion dollar NFC and cashless payments markets where we have
significant advantages over the competition."

Adoption of US Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) Standards

Due to the changes in the composition of the company's board of directors,
including the election of eight new U.S. directors on December 30, 2012, the
company no longer qualifies as a "Foreign Private Issuer" as of June 30, 2013,
and will be required to report as a domestic issuer commencing on January 1,
2014. As reported on May 31, 2012 and effective as of January 1, 2012, the
company adopted International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) as
published by the International Accounting Standards Board. However, as a
domestic issuer, the company will no longer be entitled to prepare its
financial results in accordance with IFRS. Therefore, the company has adopted
US GAAP and accordingly to prepare its financial statements for the fiscal
year ended December 31, 2012 and thereafter in accordance with US GAAP.

It should be noted that the financial results for the periods ended March 31,
2012, June 30, 2012, and September 30, 2012 were previously published in
accordance with IFRS. The financial results for the period ended June 30, 2012
that appear in this press release were prepared in accordance with US GAAP.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

This press release contains certain non-GAAP measures, namely, Adjusted
EBITDA, or adjusted earnings before interest, income tax, depreciation and
amortization. Adjusted EBITDA represents earnings before interest^^1, income
tax, depreciation and amortization, and further eliminates the effect of
share-based compensation expense. OTI believes that adjusted EBITDA should be
considered in evaluating the company's operations since it provides a clearer
indication of OTI's operating results. This measure should be considered in
addition to results prepared in accordance with US GAAP, but should not be
considered a substitute for the US GAAP results. The non-GAAP measures
included in this press release have been reconciled to the US GAAP results in
the tables below.
