than any other ATM on the planet--helping provide services to areas where
power is in short supply

NORTH CANTON, Ohio, March 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --The same amount of power
required to run a traditional incandescent light bulb can power the Diebold
429 automated teller machine (ATM). And you may even have some energy left
over. The world's first intelligent-powered ATM, created by Diebold,
Incorporated (NYSE: DBD), is also the world's greenest and most power
efficient. Currently available in the Indian market, the Diebold 429 ATM can
operate on as little as 70 watts of power, consuming up to 40 percent less
energy than other models. With these savings, a bank operating a fleet of
2,000 Diebold 429 ATMs could save enough energy annually to power more than
1,200 Indian households.

The Diebold 429 offers a solution for financial institutions to better serve
people living in areas with limited power. In India for example,
approximately 40 percent of the country's population is underbanked. The
country faces inconsistent power availability in many rural areas, which
renders most ATMs inactive during outages. Diebold was the industry's only
global ATM provider with the ability to deliver a workable solution that met
India's uninterruptible power supply requirements. Diebold is delivering 2,100
Diebold 429 ATMs for India's Bank of Baroda (BoB), making it possible for BoB
to expand self-service options to locations – and consumers – it could not
previously reach.

The Diebold 429 is equipped with a smart power management system that
continuously monitors the total power needed to operate and perform
transactions. The system automatically chooses which power source to draw from
– either the internal battery or alternating current (AC) power grid –
ensuring that the unit does not exceed 100 watts of power usage. To further
reduce power consumption from the energy grid, the terminal can use solar
power as a third power source.

Additionally, the Diebold 429 features a unique dispenser control technology
that works in tandem with the smart power system to enable all of the modules
within the ATM to operate with minimal power requirements. For example, the
modules in a typical ATM operate at 48 volts of power to dispense notes at a
standard rate. With the Diebold 429, all of the modules operate at 24 volts of
power while still dispensing notes at the same rate. This design also reduces
the need for power cooling fans.

This means that if there were 2 million ATMs in the world with an average
energy consumption of 135 kilowatt-hours (kWh) per month, switching just 1
million of the world's ATMs to Diebold 429 ATMs would reduce the global ATM
energy consumption by more than 1 billion kWh annually. This translates to a
reduction of approximately 914,393 metric tons of carbon emissions, which is
equivalent to the carbon emissions from more than 100 million gallons of
gasoline.

"Offering a variety of power options maximizes terminal uptime and delivers
convenience to consumers," said Frank A. Natoli, Jr., executive vice president
and chief innovation officer, Diebold. "The low power consumption of the
Diebold 429 ATM is unprecedented across the globe. This ATM demonstrates
Diebold's ability to respond to the unique challenges of our customers with an
innovative solution. The 429 will serve as a platform for power consumption
and energy conservation in our future ATM designs, enabling more opportunities
to incorporate optional solar panels and backup batteries."

Development of the world's greenest ATM aligns with Diebold's global
environmental commitment to reduce waste, prevent pollution, promote
recycling and conserve resources. Among Diebold's sustainability initiatives
are complete end-of-life disposal services for ATMs and other products, which
ensure all components are discarded in an environmentally sound way. The
Diebold 429 has been tested and certified by the Central Power Research
Institute of India.
