FREMONT, Calif., Aug. 19, 2003
IQ Biometrix Inc. IQBM, a worldwide provider of integrated law enforcement and security solutions, confirmed today that the letter of intent to acquire Network Storage Solutions (NSS) has been cancelled.

"In completing our due diligence, we undertook a thorough review of the financials of the proposed acquisition and have concluded that the plan to acquire NSS should be cancelled," said William Scigliano, CEO and President of IQ Biometrix (IQBM). "IQBM will remain focused on increasing shareholder value by focusing on core strategies that will maximize short and long term cash flows and position the company for sustained profitability."
