Regulatory News:

Gemalto (Euronext NL0000400653 GTO), the world leader in digital security,
announces that it is working with Oracle and V2COM, a leading developer of
Smart Grid systems, in delivering a flexible smart energy solution. This
advanced Smart Grid Platform leveraging Gemalto’s Cinterion modules with
Oracle Java ME Embedded and Oracle Java SE Embedded, will help to modernize
electrical power delivery throughout Latin America. The unique combination of
data security and modular, Java-based solutions will help enable leading-edge
smart metering, along with “big data” integration and power network
automation, to improve overall energy efficiency, as well as quality of
service for utility companies.

V2COM’s innovative solution uses Gemalto’s Cinterion modules with Oracle Java
ME Embedded to securely and reliably communicate energy usage data over
wireless networks. These modules seamlessly communicate with V2COM’s
Intellligenceware Suite, which uses Oracle Java SE Embedded, Oracle Utilities
Meter Data Management (MDM) and GlassFish Server Open Source Edition to
connect meter and sensor data into back-end utility IT systems. This allows
electric companies to reduce energy losses and fraudulent incidents by
improving remote monitoring and management of energy consumption. Quality of
service to customers is also improved with faster response times when outages
or other issues occur. The intelligent design is scalable, flexible and
robust, and can be quickly customized to the individual demands of local
market energy providers.

“Gemalto’s M2M solutions integrate seamlessly with V2COM and Oracle’s
technologies. Together, we provide a simple, scalable and cost-effective smart
energy architecture,” said Nandini Ramani, vice president of development, Java
Platform, Oracle. “Supported by the world’s largest community of developers
and deployed in over three billion devices worldwide, Java enables smart
energy companies to rapidly create and adapt sophisticated M2M solutions that
improve business. V2COM also works very closely with our dedicated Utilities
Business Unit, implementing the leading Oracle Utilities Meter Data Management
solution, which is key to the successful rollout of smart meters. It offers
scalable, robust functionality, together with a full suite of analytics, to
support utilities in Brazil and across the world.”

“We relied on Gemalto’s market-proven security expertise to design a solution
that is unique in the market for safeguarding the integrity of the power grid
infrastructure,” said Guilherme Spina, Managing Director, V2COM. “This
solution is already deployed in various countries across Latin America,
including Brazil which currently has 69 million installed energy meters and
adds six to seven million new meters every year. In Colombia, for example,
automated network management reduced response times to issues like power
outages by 40 percent.”

“The modernization of the Brazilian electricity network requires a $23 billion
investment by 2030 for various operational and technical improvements
including smart meters, billing automation and quality control,” added Ramzi
Abdine, Regional Manager for M2M at Gemalto Latin America. “Gemalto’s
extensive expertise in smart metering and remote monitoring, and its
customizable, reliable Java-based technology enable our customers to offer the
most comprehensive solutions to utility companies that are upgrading their
