ARISE Technologies Corporation today announced the release of the audited financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2004. The full financial statements and MD&A are available at www.sedar.com.

Revenues for the year decreased by 12% to $1,930,569 compared to
$2,193,741 in 2003. Gross profits decreased by 29% to $317,325 compared to
$445,832 in 2003. Net loss for 2004 increased by 31% to $1,967,423 for a loss
of $0.19 per share compared to $1,348,204 for a loss of $0.16 per share in
2003.
Ian MacLellan, President and CEO of ARISE said that, "while we are not
pleased with these results, management and the board of directors have taken
concrete steps to change our business strategy to deal with the changes and
new opportunities in the renewable energy marketplace. Dealing with the
shortages in solar modules as the result of the high growth in Germany, Japan
and the US has been our biggest challenge over the last year. We continue
to make progress on the previously announced Letter of Intent to sell
SolarSense.com to Geosign and we expect to close the transaction in the
second quarter. This transaction will help our balance sheet, improve cash
flow and help us focus on our core business. We will be presenting our updated
strategic plan to our shareholders at our Annual General Meeting which will be
held in Kitchener at ARISE on Tuesday, June 28, 2005 at 4:30 PM."
