Orsus Xelent Technologies Reports 2005 Year-End Results

Company Earns $0.12 Per Share While Successfully Transitioning to New Cellular Phone Platform, Introducing New Model Line, and Expanding Market Scope

NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 11, 2006 -- Orsus Xelent Technologies, Inc. (OTC BB: ORXT), an innovative designer and manufacturer of mobile phones, today reported the company's financial results for its fiscal year ended December 31, 2005.

For 2005, company recorded net income of $3.5 million, or $0.12 per basic and diluted share, on revenues of $28.7 million. This compared to a net income of $8.7 million on revenues of $71.0 million reported for 2004. The decrease in revenue is primary attributable to changing market demands while the company transitioned to a new platform to meet this demand during the second half of 2005.

The success of this transition was evident in the results for the second half of 2005, when more than 88% of the company's 2005 revenues were recorded. This dramatic rebound in revenue was primarily due to introduction of a series of new handsets with innovative functions like MP3, MPEG4, FM radio, and large memory capacity. These new products, consisting of models 70A, 62+, 8205, 60+, M72 and M36, also generated higher margins than previous models.

Additionally, during the second half of 2005, Orsus Xelent initiated a program to expand beyond its line of GSM-based phones and introduce products based on CDMA technology. The company partnered with a telecommunication operator and other cellular phone manufacturers, resulting in the successful introduction of the Model C100, a CDMA-based handset. During the fourth quarter of 2005, sales of the C100 exceeded $5.0 million, representing 17.5% of the year's total revenues.

Also during the fourth quarter, Orsus Xelent expanded beyond its traditional Peoples Republic of China (PRC) domestic market, selling 10,000 M18+ to Hong Kong. In 2006, the company is looking to expand its market reach to Southeast Asia, the Middle East, and other select regions.

"During 2005, we successfully adopted to rapidly changing market demands, introducing a powerful new model line," said Wang Xin, president and CEO of Orsus Xelent Technologies. "This demonstrated our proficiency in designing high-quality, high-margin handsets with the latest features desired by Asian consumers and bringing them to market rapidly. Additionally, management is implementing several strategic initiatives that will diversify our service offerings, broaden both our domestic and international distribution channels, and expand and improve our design efforts -- all setting the stage for strong growth 2006."
