Windsor, UK - 1 September 2006

Diebold, a global leader in providing integrated self-service delivery and security systems and services, has secured a contract to deliver approximately 1,200 self-service terminals to China Construction Bank (CCB).

The agreement includes the installation of Diebold’s Bulk Cash Recycle Machines (BCRM) and its advanced-function Opteva® automated teller machines (ATMs) running on Agilis® software. This will provide increased security and convenience for customers and facilitate the expansion of the bank’s nationwide self-service network.

“Diebold’s comprehensive, self-service solutions satisfy a variety of demands from customers in different banking environments,” said James L.M. Chen, vice president and managing director of Diebold Asia Pacific. “Diebold’s thought leadership in branch innovation keeps our Chinese customers abreast of any developments in the financial self-service industry.”

Diebold’s Opteva ATMs includes the latest technology proven to decrease fraud committed through ATMs with integrated ATM security features ranging from consumer awareness mirrors to operating system software security. Diebold’s aim is to deploy best-in-class security solutions to help minimise loss, decrease the level of risk for customers and maintain consumer confidence in using ATMs.

Diebold’s BCRM accepts large amounts of cash from customers and recycles it by dispensing the cash to other customers. In doing so, it allows bank personnel to focus on promoting and selling more value-added services.

“Our Opteva ATMs and bulk cash recyclers are very popular with, and widely recognised by, Chinese customers,” said Daniel Hu, managing director of Diebold Greater China Area, “As a long-term, trusted partner of China Construction Bank, Diebold believes the relationship will expand to other areas, such as ATM network management and branch innovation solutions.”

All the machines, which are in compliance with EMV security standards requiring chip cards and Triple DES encrypted key pads, will assist with CCB’s EMV migration by year’s-end.
