Magal Receives $4.1 Million in Orders to Secure Homeland Security Sites

YAHUD, Israel -- Magal Security Systems, Ltd. (NASDAQ: MAGS, TASE: MAGS) today announced three orders totaling $4.1 million for homeland security projects in Asia and Latin America.

The first two orders totaling $1.1 million are for equipment that will protect the perimeters of two nuclear power plants in East Asia. The orders include multiple Magal products: the company's leading taut wire system (Yael), robust smart grids to protect water passes (MagBar), a smart fence mounted fiber optic detection system and microwave detectors. Magal's leading all-in-one video management and intelligent video analysis application - DreamBox - is also part of the order. High security sites, such as nuclear facilities, typically use 2-3 tiers of smart perimeter systems in an overall solution.

The third order in the amount of $3 million is for a federal crisis management bunker in a Latin American country. It is a Build, Own and Maintain (BOM) project incorporating a full security and a site management solution. The project includes a CCTV system with a large video wall, a visitor screening system with X-ray, metal and biometrics detectors, access control, a public announcement system, a Perimeter Intrusion Detection System (PIDS) and a site management system for the building's utilities. The current contract is for a two year term, at the end of which, the customer has the option to either continue a lease with Magal, including service, or will purchase the equipment and system outright.
