         Gemalto: Gemalto selected by NTT DOCOMO for its NFC Services

            Will cover the largest mobile subscriber base in Japan

Amsterdam, August 26, 2014 - Gemalto (Euronext NL0000400653), the world leader
in digital security,  announces the selection  by NTT DOCOMO,  INC., the  No.1 
mobile operator in Japan with over 63 million subscribers, for its mobile  NFC 
services.  Gemalto  will  provide  NTT  DOCOMO  with  an  end-to-end  solution 
featuring its Allynis Trusted Service Management (TSM) service, as well as the
UpTeq NFC  UICC embedding  both  the SIM  and contactless  applications.  This 
collaboration reinforces Gemalto's long-standing partnership with NTT  DOCOMO, 
which includes Japan's first Long Term Evolution (LTE) high-bandwidth wireless
connectivity in 2010.

The launch will deliver  a rich variety  of contactless services  encompassing 
mobile payments, loyalty programs, e-ticketing and access control.

Gemalto's solution will provide the highest level of convenience and  security 
for NFC deployment  and sensitive  data management to  all service  providers. 
Gemalto's UpTeq NFC UICC  is the ideal  solution to use  NFC mobile phones  to 
access services requiring fast processing and high security like payment,  and 
all other valuable  future NFC services  thanks to its  scalable capacity  and 
superior post-issuance management capability.

"Japan has the world's largest contactless infrastructure so end consumers are
already familiar to waving their mobile phone to enjoy contactless  services," 
said Michael  Au,  President  South  Asia  and  Japan  at  Gemalto.  "The  NFC 
functionality builds on the UpTeq LTE card that NTT DOCOMO has already started
to seed the  market with, and  will enable  them to offer  their customers  an 
enhanced NFC experience.'
