On Track Innovations Ltd. Appoints New Chairman Of Board Of Directors

ROSH PINA, Israel, April 30, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- On Track Innovations Ltd. ("OTI") (Nasdaq:OTIV), a global leader in contactless microprocessor-based smart card solutions for homeland security, payments, eID Systems and other applications, today announced that the board of directors has elected Dimitrios Angelis to serve as its chairman and to replace Oded Bashan, who retains a seat on the board. Mr. Angelis brings a wealth of strategic, legal and business acumen to the chairmanship. He has over a decade of experience as an accomplished attorney, negotiator, and general counsel to public as well as private companies.

Mr. Angelis' appointment as chairman marks the start of a new chapter for On Track Innovations ("OTI").   The Board will aggressively pursue value for shareholders through each of its operating units and also through its patents and intellectual property.

The board believes a level of legal sophistication is needed to more aggressively maximize the financial benefit to shareholders of its patents and intellectual property. The board anticipates there will be several upcoming complex negotiations for licensing arrangements and potentially some legal actions to protect OTI's patent rights.

On May 7th and 9th, OTI will be involved in Markman Claim Construction Hearings in U.S. District Court in New York where OTI is a plaintiff alleging patent infringement. OTI will continue to protect its intellectual property and will push to maximize the value that OTI delivers to each of its shareholders.
