 Interactive 'Smart' Shelves Featuring NFC SpeedTap Tags Educate Consumers and
  Drive Purchasing Decisions; Program Launched in Retail Stores Across Canada



OSLO, Norway, October 3, 2017 - Thin Film Electronics ASA ("Thinfilm") (OSE:
THIN; OTCQX: TFECY), a global leader in NFC (near field communication) mobile
marketing and smart packaging solutions, today announced that GlaxoSmithKline
("GSK") (LSE/NYSE: GSK), one of the world's leading research-based
pharmaceutical and healthcare companies has commercially deployed Thinfilm's
unique SpeedTap(TM) tags to create interactive 'smart' shelves for enhanced
communication with consumers at time of purchase decision-making.

GSK introduced interactive 'smart' Flonase® shelves in retail stores across
Canada in an effort to educate consumers about the new product and guide them in
their purchasing decision. Thinfilm's unique SpeedTap(TM) tags incorporated into
shelving allows consumers to obtain product information through the tap of an
NFC-enabled smartphone.

In addition to SpeedTap tags, GSK is also using Thinfilm's software platform -
CNECT(TM) - as part of the end-to-end solution that helps dynamically manage the
experience of Flonase® consumers. The cloud-based platform integrates with the
NFC hardware, enabling GSK to manage tags remotely, deliver custom messaging and
content, view real-time consumer tapping activity, and develop valuable consumer
insights through built-in analytics functionality.

"At GSK, we focus on helping people do more, feel better, and live longer. And
we do that, in large part, by delivering highly effective products to the
market," said Sriman Banerjee, Director - R&D Respiratory Packaging for GSK.
"But we also realize that connecting directly with consumers to provide unique
and meaningful experiences is critical in today's market. We believe an
innovative mobile technology like Thinfilm's can play a critical role in
strengthening customer relationships, building brand loyalty, and driving
revenue for the Flonase® brand."

Flonase® Allergy Relief is the first 'prescription to over-the-counter'
intranasal corticosteroid spray from GSK indicated for relief of nasal and eye-
related allergy symptoms as well as management of sinus pain and pressure. It is
an effective medicine that relieves seasonal and year-round allergy symptoms
caused by pollen, mold, dust and pets.

"We are delighted to work with GSK - a global leader, an innovator, and a
company that is changing the face of healthcare," said Davor Sutija, CEO of
Thinfilm. "Bringing Thinfilm's NFC solutions to a valued product like Flonase®
is a milestone in the industry, and we look forward to helping GSK drive the
brand's value by connecting directly with consumers at the time of purchase
decision-making."
