Departure of Director

Identiv, Inc. (formerly known as Identive Group, Inc.) (the "Company") held its 2014 Annual Meeting of Stockholders on May 22, 2014 (the "Annual Meeting"). Effective as of the date of the Annual Meeting, Dr. Hans Liebler, a director of the Company since June 2008, completed his service as a director of the Company. Dr. Liebler's departure from the Board of Directors is not the result of any dispute or disagreement with the Company.

Amendments to 2011 Incentive Compensation Plan

At the Annual Meeting, the stockholders of the Company approved the amendment of the Company's 2011 Incentive Compensation Plan (the "2011 Plan") to, among other things, increase the aggregate maximum number of shares that may be issued under the 2011 Plan by 10,000,000 shares to 18,599,561 and to increase the individual participant fiscal year grant limits for certain equity-based awards from 500,000 shares to 1,500,000 shares.

The foregoing is a summary only and does not purport to be a complete description of all of the amendments to the 2011 Plan, and is subject to and qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the 2011 Plan, as amended, which was filed by the Company as Annex B to the Proxy Statement on Schedule 14A filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 28, 2014, which 2011 Plan is incorporated by reference into this Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibit 10.1.

Item 5.03. Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year

On May 22, 2014, the Company filed a Certificate of Amendment to its Fourth Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation, as amended (the "Certificate of Amendment"), with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware to (i) change its name from "Identive Group, Inc." to "Identiv, Inc." (the "Name Change") and (ii) effect a 1-for-10 reverse stock split of the Company's issued and outstanding common stock (the "Reverse Stock Split").

As disclosed in Item 5.07 of this Current Report on Form 8-K, at the Annual Meeting, the Company's stockholders, by an affirmative vote of at least a majority of the shares of common stock outstanding and entitled to vote on the matters, approved both a proposal to effect the Name Change and a proposal authorizing the Company's Board of Directors, in its discretion, to effect a reverse stock split of the Company's outstanding shares of common stock at any whole number ratio not less than 1-for-3 and not greater than 1-for-10. Following the Annual Meeting, the Board of Directors approved the reverse stock split with a ratio of 1-for-10.

As a result of the Reverse Stock split, every ten shares of the Company's issued and outstanding common stock will be automatically combined into one issued and outstanding share of the Company's common stock, without any change in the par value per share. No fractional shares will be issued as a result of the Reverse Stock Split. Stockholders who otherwise would be entitled to receive a fractional share in connection with the Reverse Stock Split will receive a cash payment in lieu thereof.

Commencing on May 27, 2014, trading of the Company's common stock will continue on the NASDAQ Capital Market on a reverse stock split-adjusted basis. The Company's trading symbol will remain "INVE." The new CUSIP number for the Company's common stock following the Reverse Stock Split is 45170X205.
