The spin-off will allow the spun-off entity to focus fully on patent licensing operations, including technology innovation, patent development and licensing. After the spin-off, Aware will continue as a leading supplier of test and diagnostics products and imaging and biometrics software.

Aware expects to file documents with the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission (SEC) over the next few months and to complete the proposed transaction in the first half of fiscal 2011. The spin-off will result in two, independent publicly traded U.S. companies.

The proposed transaction is expected to be structured as a tax-free distribution to Aware stockholders, and is contingent upon a number of items including, but not limited to, receipt of a favorable ruling from the Internal Revenue Service as to the United States federal income tax consequences of the spin-off, a determination by Aware’s board of directors that the spin-off is in the best interest of Aware, and the completion of a review process by the SEC.

Aware also filed with the SEC today a proxy statement regarding a Special Meeting of Stockholders to approve amendments to existing equity plans to provide for an equity exchange program.

About Aware
Aware (aware.com) is a leading technology and supplier for the telecommunications and biometrics industries. Aware has pioneered innovations at telecommunications standards-setting organizations for DSL and networking. Telecom equipment vendors and phone companies use Aware's DSL test and diagnostics modules and Dr. DSL® software to provision and troubleshoot DSL circuits globally. Aware is also a veteran of the biometrics industry, providing biometric and imaging software components used in government systems worldwide since 1992. Aware's interoperable, standard-compliant, field-proven imaging products are used in a number of applications, from border management to criminal justice to medical imaging. Aware is a publicly held company based in Bedford, Massachusetts.

More information about the proposal to approve amendments to Aware’s existing equity plans and the proposed equity exchange program is available in our proxy statement filed with the SEC on September 24, 2010. The proxy statement is available free of charge from the SEC’s website at sec.gov/.

The equity exchange program described in the proxy statement has not yet commenced. The equity exchange program will only be commenced, if at all, if stockholders approve the amendments to Aware’s existing equity plans to permit the equity exchange program. Even if the requisite stockholder approval is obtained, Aware may still decide later not to implement the equity exchange program. Persons who are eligible to participate in the equity exchange program should read the Tender Offer Statement on Schedule TO, including the offer to exchange and other related materials, when those materials become available because they will contain important information about the equity exchange program. Aware will file the Tender Offer Statement on Schedule TO with the SEC upon the commencement of the equity exchange program. Aware’s stockholders and equity award holders will be able to obtain these written materials and other documents filed by Aware with the SEC free of charge from the SEC’s website.
