AMERICAN BANK NOTE HOLOGRAPHICS, INC. REPORTS

SECOND QUARTER 2007 FINANCIAL RESULTS

-—

Sequential Revenue and Earnings Growth Highlighted by Contract

to Supply Security Laminates for Colombia National Identification Cards

Robbinsville, NJ – August 7, 2007 – American Bank Note Holographics, Inc. (“ABNH” or the “Company”) (OTC Bulletin Board: ABHH), a world leader in the origination, production and marketing of holograms for security applications, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2007.

Sales in the second quarter of 2007 totaled $7.9 million, a decrease of 5.2% from $8.4 million in the second quarter of 2006, and an increase of 9.3% from $7.3 million in the first quarter of 2007. Second quarter 2006 sales included approximately $1.0 million of revenue associated with the previously reported discontinued Visa HoloMag program. The sequential quarterly increase in sales was principally the result of the expansion of the Company’s secure government document programs. The largest contributor to the expansion in secure government document programs in the quarter was the first order under a new contract for the Colombian national identity card. ABNH has supplied holographic laminates to the Colombian government for several years, and this contract represents a significant expansion in the volume and scope of the relationship. In accordance with the contract, ABNH has implemented a new format for the secure holographic laminates utilizing ABNH’s patented transparent discontinuous metallization technology. The Company also expanded its relationship with the National Database and Registration Authority of Pakistan resulting in an increase in supply of its patented secure laminates for the Pakistan National identification cards.

Sales in the first six months of 2007 decreased 17.2% to $15.2 million from $18.4 million in the comparable period in 2006. First half 2006 sales included approximately $4.1 million of revenue associated with the previously reported discontinued Visa HoloMag programs.

Net income in the second quarter of 2007 totaled $1.2 million, or $0.06 per share, an increase of 26.9% from net income of $1.0 million, or $0.05 per share, in the second quarter of 2006, and an increase of 24.9% from $1.0 million, or $0.05 per share, in the first quarter of 2007. Net income in the first six months of 2007 increased 8.6% to $2.2 million, or $0.12 per share, from $2.0 million, or $0.11 per share, in the comparable period in 2006. Net income as a percentage of sales was 15.2% in the second quarter of 2007 compared to 11.4% in the second quarter of 2006 and 13.3% in the first quarter of 2007. Net income as a percentage of sales was 14.3% in the first six months of 2007 compared to 10.9% in the first six months of 2006.

Growth in net income and net income as a percentage of sales in both the three and six-month periods on a year-over-year basis was driven primarily by improved operational efficiencies resulting in a lower cost structure in manufacturing, selling, administration and R&D. Each of the three and six-month periods ended June 30, 2006 included approximately $1 0 million of revenue, with no associated costs, related to the discontinued Visa HoloMag program. Other factors impacting net income for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2007 were the reversal of a portion of the Company’s warranty reserve, which was substantially offset by manufacturing costs incurred to convert customers from existing products to new products. Growth in net income and net income as a percentage of sales on a sequential basis also benefited from the greater than 9% revenue growth in the second quarter.

Kenneth H. Traub, President and CEO of ABNH, commented, “We are very proud of our recent achievements which have significantly strengthened our company. With our new agreement with Visa, we have resolved the prior issues regarding the first generation of HoloMag, and we have deepened this important relationship. We continue to be the world’s leading supplier of holographic products to the transaction card industry, and we are building on this leadership position with the deployment of HoloMag Gen 2, HoloCard and most recently, HoloStripe. In the government document market, our patented security technologies are increasingly being specified for high-security documents issued by both the U.S. government, and international governments – particularly those that are most sensitive to security and counterfeit prevention.”

Mr. Traub concluded, “Counterfeiting has become an increasing global problem threatening international security, consumer safety and the integrity of a wide array of branded and valuable products. As a result, governments and major corporations worldwide are addressing this issue with a heightened sense of urgency today. ABNH now enjoys a significantly strengthened organization, infrastructure, technology, product line, market and financial position which positions us well to capitalize on the growing demand for improved product and document security with our proven and effective solutions.”

Mark J. Bonney, Executive Vice President and CFO of the Company stated, “Second quarter results demonstrate the accelerating benefits of the execution of our growth strategy as well as improved operational efficiencies with gross profit and operating margins expanding in both sequential and year-over-year comparisons. With a strong balance sheet and increasing operating leverage, revenue growth is translating into attractive cash flow generation.”
