Vince Schiralli, President and Chief Operating Officer, said:

"Fiscal 2005 is a breakthrough year for the Company. We have been able to consistently improve both revenue and margins in our core business while driving forward with our mobile software business development and R&D. Our record fourth quarter results have set the stage for further growth in our core business in fiscal 2006. We have also made excellent progress in establishing key partnerships and customers for our mobile software product offerings in fiscal 2006."

"As part of Intrinsyc's Mobile Software Products strategy, we are addressing the mobile industry's need for feature phones that are cheaper and faster to produce in order to target a global, mass-market base of mobile phone users. We are leveraging our established Windows CE skills in developing the world's only Windows CE-based operating system for feature phones and the recent investment from Wellington Financial LP is a strong vote of confidence in Intrinsyc's mobile expertise to deliver this product in 2006."

Derek Spratt, Chief Executive Officer, said:

"In addition to the outstanding performance of our core business both in the fourth quarter and throughout the year, the first milestone of our Windows CE-based feature phone development was completed on time and on budget. Intrinsyc's business development activity has also been very successful and we are making excellent progress toward establishing our critical partnership and initial customer relationships."
