Fidelis Energy Announces Completion of Second Financing Tranche With Empres Voss Capital

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - November 18, 2010) - Fidelis Energy Inc. (PINKSHEETS: FDEI) today announced that the company has received $5 million from Empres Voss Capital ("EVC") as partial payment for the company's achievement of a milestone under the Securities Purchase Agreement dated January 19, 2010, as amended June 6, 2010. The milestone triggering this tranche was achieved in November, but the payment was only due by December 1, 2010. EVC is expected to deliver the remaining $5 million by the end of this month to complete this latest financing tranche.

"This latest financing should have us entering calendar year 2011 in great shape," said company CEO and President James Poole. "With this latest tranche, Fidelis will have closed on $18 million of a committed $30 million in milestone-triggered financing. With cash in the bank, an improved balance sheet, and $12 million more in financing committed from the Empres Voss Capital, the company should be in an excellent position to pursue its development plans and goals."

About Fidelis Energy Inc.
Fidelis Energy Inc. ("FDEI") is an energy company focused on developing, constructing and operating solar energy projects exclusively or in partnership with other energy companies. Fidelis is also in the development stage of designing solar photovoltaic (PV) cell technology products and plans to manufacture and distribute these products in the future. Fidelis owns a unique patent pending solar cell technology based on photovoltaic cells with integral light-transmitting wave guides in a ceramic sleeve. The advantage of this technology is the efficiency of less exposed surface area being required to generate electricity. The light-transmitting particles act as wave guides and allow the sun-exposed conversion area of the solar cell to be shifted readily from horizontal to vertical to capture more sunlight. The ceramic sleeve eliminates the need for expensive vacuum chambers, thereby allowing less expensive materials to be used in solar cell production.

We are developing, with plans to eventually manufacture and market, innovative solar cells and solar power products for a wide range of applications based on our technology that increases light-trapping while enabling a variety of materials to be used. Our technology employs multiple stacked solar cells in a ceramic sleeve that uses nano-particles and crystal wave guides to carry light from the opening down to the last junction in the solar cell. Competitors' processes that use vacuum chambers (instead of a ceramic sleeve) generally don't allow for material substitution because of contamination issues. We believe our technology will also allow manufacturers to quickly and economically shift to new materials if a shortage of any one type of material occurs. In general, our technology will offer a flexible, cost-effective solution for increased light-trapping and will provide increased efficiency.
