TRANSACT TECHNOLOGIES TO SHOWCASE THE ITHACA® 9700 FOOD SAFETY TERMINAL AT THE NATIONAL SCHOOL BOARD ASSOCIATION ANNUAL CONFERENCE

April 12, 2013

HAMDEN, CT., April 12, 2012– TransAct Technologies Incorporated (NASDAQ: TACT), a global leader in market-specific solutions, including printers, terminals, software and other products for transaction-based and other industries, announced today that they will demonstrate their innovative Ithaca® 9700 Food Safety terminal at the upcoming National School Board Association Annual Conference and Exposition. This year’s conference takes place April 13 – 15 at the San Diego Convention Center, located in San Diego, CA.

The TransAct team will be located in booth 335, where they will provide hands-on demonstrations of this revolutionary new product that makes food preparation safer and faster.

The Ithaca® 9700 Food Safety Terminal features an 8.4 inch easy to read color touch screen with a choice of one of two printer configurations to print food labels that are needed when food items are opened and then put back into refrigerators, freezers or on shelves. These items have specific shelf life and the labels clearly indicate when the item expires. In addition, the Ithaca® 9700 also prints labels for grab-and-go items such as salads, sandwiches and soups and will allow food establishments to print ingredients, calories and sell-by dates.

It has an easy snap-in/snap-out printer mechanism for flexibility and serviceability and each can be used for multiple width labels, making drop-in label loading simple. In addition, the terminals can be sold with a PC-based software companion utility for quick menu and inventory updates.
