Checkpoint - Helping Retailers Gwo ProfitablyCheckpoint Systems chosen by Tesco to implement EAS technology to improve products on-shelf availability

New strategic initiative to enhance open merchandising and improve consumers' shopping experience

THOROFARE, N.J. – September, 12, 2012 – Checkpoint Systems, Inc., (NYSE:CKP), a leading global supplier of EAS solutions, merchandise visibility and apparel labelling solutions for the retail industry and its supply chain, today announced that it has been chosen by Tesco to implement a global EAS programme to improve on- shelf availability of products, open merchandising and consumer shopping experience.

Having successfully installed EVOLVE ECO in 1,250 Tesco Express Stores last year, Checkpoint has been asked to fast track the roll-out its advanced RF solutions in over 900 of the retailer's large store formats Extra, Superstore and Metro stores over the next few months, replacing the existing acousto-magnetic technology.

As part of the programme, Tesco is upgrading their systems with the latest EAS technology by installing Checkpoint’s EVOLVE ECO, high- performance, energy-lean RF-EAS systems across Tesco’s entire estate in the UK. EVOLVE ECO antennas provide energy savings of up to 75 percent over existing competitive solutions, helping Tesco reduce its operational costs and carbon footprint. The UK installation will be completed ahead of Christmas.

George Babich, Interim Chief Executive Officer and President Checkpoint Systems, welcomed the partnership and commented: "We are excited to be partnering with one of the world’s leading retailers and support its continuous quest to improve on shelf availability and enhance shoppers’ experience. With this roll-out, Tesco now has Checkpoint solutions installed throughout the whole of the UK as well as North America and Asia."
